Regular readers will already know that the think tank here at Falling Downs has their money on Mali being the destination of choice for Justin's yet-to-be-announced peace-keeper mission.
We came to that conclusion after a careful analysis of the Canadian-owned gold mines per capita stats in various African nations.
Ya, I know that might seem a bit cynical. Hey, maybe PM Sunny Ways has a new formula. If so, please let the public see that new formula!
I'm personally expecting more of the Harper era not-so-sunny tie-in between our investors and our peace-keepers.
A once proud and prosperous region of Africa rendered a shit-hole by the Nations of Virtue.
The beating heart of colonialism lives on via France's involvement there, according to the commies at the World Socialist Website.
Oddly enough, the beating heart of colonialism also keeps on beating there according to the neo-fascists at the John Birch Society.
When the far left and the far right agree that Mali is a nation fucked over big-time by the former colonisers, I'm ready to buy in.
Obviously, PM Sunny Days is too... but just what is he buying into?
For my (tax) money, I'd rather see those "peacekeepers" up in Attawapiskat building some decent housing or something...
Or maybe some flood barriers in Winnipeg...
Or some social housing in Toronto, where the minimum wage has you making under two thousand a month before deductions and a one bedroom apartment will set you back... about what you just made that month!
Too bad about the groceries and all that other shit... hey, not to worry; that's why we have such a nice network of foodbanks!
Come to think of it, we've got all kinds of shit right here at home that our money and manpower could address, instead of spreading more colonialist goodness in Africa.
