Canada bombing Iraq to liberate women!

Ya, that's rich, eh?

But that's the message from Defence Minister Jason Kenney in a tweet he fired off on the occasion of International Women's Day.

It's a time-honoured trope among the Harperites. You may recall that in the early years of our Afghanistan debacle we were there to liberate women too.

Saving women in Iraq, saving women in Afghanistan... Hell, take a gander at the press releases at the Department of Foreign Affairs and you'll see that saving women all over the world is what we do!

Guess all the moronic chest-thumping helps draw the eye away from headlines like this one; Canada commits Grave Violation of Rights of Aboriginal Women and Girls.
