War and Hypocrisy

I have to say I am a little surprised that Harper would throw Hitler and World War II around so carelessly in a political setting to gain political points. I have to wonder what veterans are thinking about such statements. There are plenty of veterans against these "wars".

Afghanistan is not a war, it is an occupation. Where's the Afghanistan army? Where are their tanks and fleets of planes like the Nazi's had? This is double-think at it's finest, if you want to make World War II comparisons, let's start shall we?
  1. We are the invading force.
  2. We cheer "Bin Laden's assasination".
  3. We have the concentration camps, CSIS/CIA black sites, etc.
  4. We are the ones designing civil rights breaching anti-terrorism acts, patriot acts, NDAA's, etc, etc.
  5. We have no problem violating civil rights at will.
Should I continue? If we want to make World War II comparisons, which side do we sound like to you guys? Maybe it's time to get out.

Canada is not immune to "war propaganda". Next time you read an article telling you we're the good guys, ask a German what they were reading during World War II. They were the "good guys", too.
