Canada on missile defense, war dodgers

Paul Martin announced today the he's not gonna participate, either financially or structurally, with Bush's missile defense plan. He doesn't want to join in on "continental" defense, despite the fact that I believe Canada is actually on the same continent as the US. Martin said that he wanted to spend money on Canadian priorities, and missile defense is not one of these priorities.

Well, I mean, why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free. Would the US stand by if Canada was being attacked? Of course, this begs the question, who would attack Canada? Really, Canada can just say no to all this stuff, happily secure in the notion that they can never be forcibly removed for North America, and thus will always exist safely in our shadow (did I say that out loud?)

Martin went on to say that Canada would be a haven for all of our military deserters- he welcomes them with open arms. You know what? I'm fine with this. While it galls me that Canada thinks nothing of our laws, and society ... the thought that we would be RID of these people outweighs my reservations. Fly, be free you little pansy asses. Take an extra coat.
