Canadian Elections

OK, the Canadian elections are, well, a secondary concern. I mean, Paul Martin was never quite a Jacques Chirac or a Gerhard Schroeder simply by virtue of Canada's meaningless (or should I say, failure to assert its dubious meaningfulness like the French or the Germans), but simply a mini-me of the larger scale "world leaders."

Ca n'a pas d'importance...but her is the tally of world leaders standing today after the planet's democracies have spoken after careful consider of this whole thingy in Iraq.

USA- George W. Bush = pro war +1
UK - Tony Blair = pro war +1
Spain - Jose-Marie Aznar = pro war -1
Australia - John Howard = pro war +1
Germany - Gerhard Shroeder = anti war -1
Canada - Paul Martin = anti war -1
France - Jacques Chirac has not faced the voters, but let's be real, he's a gonner = anti-war -1
Italy - Berlusconi = indeterminate at this point = even

I won't even count Portugal and Poland, lovely places to be sure, that both went with more pro-war governments recently. So the tally of major democracies that had a chance to express their opinions...+6 pro war. Clearly, all these people are simply stupid.

I think some of these elections had more to do with economic bed-crapping and corruption than an incumbant's anti-war stance.

yes indeed, it is an oversimplification of complex situations but highly relevant nonetheless
