It's no wonder he comes across as a cold fish. Nothing, it seems, gets our prime monster's blood coursing like some good, old fashioned bombing. He reminds me of that John Candy hick character/movie reviewer and his line, "It blowed up goood, it blowed up reeeal goood."
Steve's short fuse was apparently lit by his decision to send six CF-18s to Sicily in support of the other white guys looking to kick a little Libyan ass. It's made Steve so embarrassingly hot that he referred to it as an "act of war." An act of war? Really, Steve?
"We should not kid ourselves. Whenever you engage in military action - essentially acts of war - these are difficult situations."
Sounds like real Crusader talk to me. So, if Canada is now at war with Libya, committing "acts of war" and everything, isn't somebody supposed to sign off on this, get a Declaration of War or something like that? I know the Americans don't like to do that but that's because they like to cover their tracks, call their wars something else entirely, retain a lot of diplomatic weasel room.
And just what is so difficult in sending six airplanes and a couple of hundred of the hired help over there? You did, after all, get a convenient vacation from Ottawa. You got to sit at a big table with all the real leaders and they even tossed in dinner to boot.
