Manley Report: No Surprises
It looks like Stephen Harper got exactly what he wanted out of John Manley's report on the situation in Afghanistan. It will play well with hawkish Conservatives while putting the squeeze on a divided Liberal caucus. The Liberals have no idea what to do... it was quite humorous watching both Bob Rae and Stephane Dion on television yesterday going on and on about nothing, refusing to take a position on the report. The NDP deserves credit for its clear and consistent position - a position shared by a majority of Canadian: Pull the troops now!
