The big story in the news today is the fact that Israel has pretty much pummelled the shit out of Gaza.
I'm just wondering if there's a single Palestinian out there that didn't see this coming.
Consider this alternate scenario.
What if we Canadians were to go ahead and elect the Al-Qaida in Canada party into power. Our neighbours to the south probably wouldn't be too pleased. If our Prime Minister were to then shout "Death to America" from the rafters at every opportunity and then fire a few rockets at Detroit and Buffalo now and then, you can be damned sure the Americans would turn around and take notice.
Surely they'd be a bit miffed and they'd probably stop buying shit from us and sending us shiny new cars.
Then, after all that, if we were to go and abduct a few Americans and start making demands, I think it would be a safe bet that they'd bomb the snow right off us and we'd all be trying to re-build out igloos from radioactive mud.
With that in mind, I don't think I'll be voting for Al-Quaida should they decide to run for office here. It just doesn't seem like the smart thing to do.
Seriously. WTF. Do they actually want to build a proper nation down there or are they just out to cause trouble and martyr themselves???
