THIS IS MY LAST CONTRIBUTION TO THE REBEL.
IF YOU HAVE A CONSCIOUS, PLEASE READ IT.
Why is it that Canada, and I am one of you, under continual weak, feckless national leadership, allows starvation, child slavery, human trafficking, genocide, female genital mutilation, female oppression and multiple other atrocities, to happen all around the world? Why have we not pressed our leadership to in turn press the UN and NATO to intervene in all these hot spots all around the world and stop it all? If not us, some of the most intelligent, sincere, caring and responsible people on the face of the earth, then who? We must stop hiding behind the belief that other nations within the pathetic UN community will do it for us, that we can reason with tyrants or that it can’t be stopped.
Of course it can be stopped, but only with strong leadership, courage and blood shed. Unfortunately, since WWII our history of leadership in matters such as these has been nonexistent. But we have not been alone in this neglect simply because the world has not had strong leaders since 1945. Especially Canada when we proved our moment of a lack of human decency by our Canadian actions in Somalia. We watched innocents mercilessly slaughtered with genocide under the guise of following UN leadership when we could have stopped it with some intestinal fortitude and real leadership. That was a time that will forever live in Canadian infamy but now is the time to erase those memories, now is the time for redemption, now is the time where we must take the lead.
I challenge all Canadians to step up and do the right thing because the timing is perfect. Tell Trudeau to start the process of showing leadership around the world and lead the charge to stop the carnage. Show the weak, the oppressed, the abused and women in countries who will never know freedom that someone cares. But, alas, I fear we won’t simply because we haven’t in the past, it doesn’t really affect us on a daily basis, the financial and human cost will be too high for the mighty among us to stomach and sadly because it’s Justin. I posit that if Canada were not positioned safely north of the US, the most powerful country on earth, surrounded by two great oceans on two sides that offer unbelievable protection in addition to the vast safety provided by the frozen tundra of the north, everyone of us would be shaking in our boots wondering where the next attack from a brutal, demonic sect is coming from. Unless we as Canadians are willing to step up and take the lead to stop this blight on our human conscious, we must shut the fuck up. It’s that or take the lead and follow the US into a great time in our history to do what’s right. Or we can follow Justin and do nothing but talk, who I’m sure repeatedly preaches the once infamous line of his father. “Perhaps the world in unfolding as it should”. It’s pathetic leadership like that that got us where we are today.
