I Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself

A dose of blindingly obvious common sense for the opposition, from Prime Minister Stephen Harper:


“The Liberals and the Bloc tell me: rebalance the mission. What does that mean? I mean, what the hell does that mean?”

“We’ve got guys there, they’re in the most dangerous province in the country. Yes, we’re trying to do development and humanitarian assistance and we’re doing that. But the fact of the matter is that they’ve got guys shooting at them. And they’ve got the most concentrated group of enemy combatants right there. It isn’t an option to cut down the military side of the operation. They have to do what is necessary to protect the local people and protect themselves. And nothing less.”

Harper said it would be “completely irresponsible” to reduce Canada’s military mission in Afghanistan.

“If other parties want to go to the people and take that position - ‘We’d leave them there but we’d tell them not to defend themselves’ - let them explain that to the Canadian people.”*



Succinctly put: "HEY IDIOTS! YOU CAN'T BUILD THINGS WHEN PEOPLE ARE SHOOTING AT YOU!"
