"Marshall Plan?"

Stephan Dion clearly doesn't know anything about history - suggesting that a "Marshall-Plan" style is a solution for Afghanistan is not only historically ridiculous in and of itself, it's tantamount to switching your business strategy when you're already reaping great profits. Our Afghanistan strategy is working, and no amount of naysaying from the Liberal politicos for partisan gain is going to change that (If you get a chance, check out Bill Graveland's Afghan coverage in your local newspaper - he's doing an outstanding job).

It reflects poorly on Dion that his first tactics are the same ones used in the past two Liberal election campaigns - tactics that in the end didn't work, I might add. I'd have hoped Mr. Dion would be interested in debating policy on its merits rather than engaging in silly fear-mongering. Already we're "far-right," "hard-right," and "Neo-conservative." About that last one - funny, I don't recall ever having been a Liberal. I guess Dion musn't know what neo-conservative actually means.

Well, when you don't know what you stand for, all you can do is try to make the other guy look as bad as possible.

And if Dion thinks that he's a George C. Marshall, well, he's even more deluded than I thought.
