Canada conned by neo-cons

Bill Kaufmann's column in the Calgary Sun on the Emery extradition is the best one I've seen in a while on the wider issue of Canadian sovereignty. Emery's bust was just another symptom of a disturbing trend manifesting within the Canadian parliament to kowtow to White House edicts - however surrepitiously made.
An energy-hungry bully that tells us how it's going to be in sectors like lumber regardless of trade rulings, fairness and law might find it even harder to resist reading us the riot act in who we sell our hydrocarbons to.

Sorry, Myron -- the Bush cartel that ignores treaties on torture, military aggression, disarmament, global warming and trade isn't about to play nice with even a sycophantic Canada.

What has British submission to Bush won Tony Blair other than White House contempt and homegrown terrorism?
Indeed. A neo-con's loyalty only lasts as long as its idiots are useful.
