Golly. Steve Harper really is standing on guard for we. Just when Obama showed up in Ottawa, a couple of Ruskkie bombers strayed into international airspace and Steve sent'em packing.
"We will defend our airspace," a resolute Harper told someone who could be bothered to listen.
Harp's little soldier, DefMin Peter MacKay chimed in, "It's not a game."
Sorry Pete, but that's exactly what it is - a game. The very same game that's been played out between NORAD and the Russians for decades. And, yes, just like every other government before you guys, we sent up interceptors to - well, to intercept the bombers and then they headed home.
So what's the big deal about this incident? How about nothing, nada, zip, squat. Harp just saw a chance to pretend like he had muscles and an all too willing media and so he took it.
Now will somebody let MacKay in on it. It's a game Pete, a game.
