We still have a border. Let's use it.


PAN-CANADIAN CALL-IN TO SUPPORT
US WAR RESISTERS IN CANADA


Canada did not support the illegal invasion of Iraq. Why would Canada reject war resisters who ask for asylum here because they also share this opinion? Three US war resisters are currently being processed by the Canadian government for return across the border to US authorities. We still have a border. Let's use it.

Canadian Cynic has a piece up on the stall-out at the current Senate confirmation hearings of Michael Mukasey for U.S. Attorney-General. Seems the spineless incompetent Dems are unable to come up with a definition of torture that Mukasey can agree to renounce. It's just all too 'theoretical' for Mike. CC has a suggestion. I would just like to add that there is no such thing as 'simulated drowning' - unless you happen to be using simulated water.

Remind me again why Canada should send war resisters back to this rogue state?

"There is no such thing as simulated drowning -- unless you're using simulated water." May I use that, Alison? I shall credit you.

Time to get our own rogue government out too.

Chuck Schumer formerly held my high regard. His stand on this issue has changed that.

You said it right, Alisn: "spineless incompetent Dems"

Pretty lousy choices we have here in the "rogue state", eh?

Hell, I don't even like the idea of sending convicted murderers back there!

Jennifer : That's just the thing - under Canadian law so far, we don't send felons back to the US if they face the death penalty.
