Thriving on Indignation

The Toronto Sun is outraged (The Left thrives on faked indignation.) This time, however, it's directed at John Kerry.

Rising to Bush's bait, Kerry said he would have cast the same Yes vote in Congress that he did on Oct. 11, 2002, to authorize the president to launch a pre-emptive war that began March 19, 2003, even if Kerry had known that Saddam Hussein had no ties with Al Qaeda terrorists, no weapons of mass destruction and posed no real threat to the world.

"I believe it's the right authority for a president to have," Kerry now says. Only he would have used that power more "effectively."
The Toronto Sun response.

This amounts to a sweeping claim by Kerry that America has carte blanche to make war on even bogus grounds, and in defiance of the United Nations and world opinion, so long as the war is waged effectively.

a The U.N. did not think war was necessary in Rwanda to avert 800,000 deaths.
a The U.N. is still dithering in Sudan because, frankly, they don't have the means to do anything else.
a The U.N. is up to its eyeballs in corruption - U.N. Food for Oil program.

So, if you follow the logic, the United States is not allowed to wage war unless it does so under the U.N. flag, or, at least, not without U.N. permission. They (the U.N. and the elite media) will determine whether or not war is justified. And then they will send in -- American troops. Certainly not their own. One of the reasons cited for non-involvement was the fact that no country wanted to commit troops. The no country included Bill Clinton. In Canada, the handwritten response to the urgent plea for intervention, was "Canada doesn't do Africa."

Canada doesn't do anything. Except ride along on the coattails of others. It's called "punching above their weight" when they go along with the U.N. and call themselves Peacekeepers, as in keeping the "peace" in Rwanda, for example.

God help us if we ever live in a world where the U.N. calls the shots, because you can be damn certain they will do their best to subsidize tyranny. They have done so for thirty years in collaboration with the Elite media. Having someone challenge them both is sending them into fits.

This, from two wanna-be terrorists residing in England.
"They were wrong to come to our country. They said they came for chemical weapons and they didn't get permission from the United Nations so they attacked Iraq for no reason," Abu Turab said.
