Canadian MP’s Vote to Extend Libya Air Bombing

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

(Yea, it looks cool, but that doesn’t make it right.)

Members of Canadian Parliament voted 294-1 to extend the military mission in Libya. What a disappointment. The one and only member willing to stand against the war was Elizabeth May from the Green Party.

Taking action to increase profits for the war machine is to be expected from the Conservative Party. And the Liberals went off track years ago, which is why they got the boot last election.

But even the NDP??? Every single one of them voted to continue drone strikes on Libyan soil? Shame.

The longer this war drags on, the deeper NATO forces will be digging themselves in, which, non-coincidentally, is exactly what the war-profiteers want.

But it’s not what Canadians want… at least not this one. There has got to be better ways to help the people of Libya besides dropping bombs on them.
