In 2006 a CF Major by the rather wonderful name of Hess-von Kruedener was killed while doing his job in Southern Lebanon. The IDF who have previous form in the areas of deliberately targeting women, children, non-combatants and United Nations troops were responsible for his death.
The IDF were asked not to attack his bunker, but they did in the full knowledge that they were attacking UN observers and they killed the Blue Berets that were there. The DND investigated and published a report on the incident and it lay the blame squarely where it should be, at the feet of the IDF and their leadership.
In 2009 the Harper regime, in an attempt to continue it’s policy of unfettered and unconditional support for all things the Israeli government does, withdrew the report from public scrutiny. Why? I think the good major’s wife puts it best..
“They don’t want people reading about it,” she said. “It’s embarrassing to the Israelis and, as we know, Prime Minister (Stephen) Harper has given his unconditional support to the Israelis.”
It appears that Canadians and Canada are all expendable commodities in the furtherance of our glorious leader’s agenda, especially if they in anyway contradict the reality that exists within his head.
A Canadian hero tipp-exed out of history because Harper’s friends murdered him, Canada sold to a foreign totalitarian government because to do otherwise would stymie Harper’s dream economic future.
Next time Harper and MacKay wrap themselves in the flag and cry their crocodile tears over “the troops” remember this abject failing on their behalf.
