This site is a wonder. What Conservatives really think, in their own words. I especially appreciated this reminder of what Jonah Goldberg once wrote about Canada:
"Canada is, quite simply, not a serious country anymore... And that's why a little invasion is precisely what Canada needs. In the past, Canada has responded to real threats with courage and conviction (some say more Canadians went south to enlist for war in Vietnam than Americans went north to dodge it). If the U.S. were to launch a quick raid, blow up some symbolic but unoccupied structure -- Toronto's CN Tower, or an empty hockey stadium -- Canada would rearm overnight. "
Just so we're clear, Jonah Goldberg was advocating that the US invade Canada, destroy Canadian property and lives, so that a more pliable Canadian government would come to power, or that the existing government would be more pliable. This is the definition of terrorism. That an allied national would write this is bad enough. That the National Post, an allegedly Canadian paper, would reprint it (as it did on November 12, 2002) is simply treasonous.

Just one more in a long line of reasons to lock up the press barons in this country.
