For Harper, 6 CF-18s in Kuwait, all war all the time, phoning up the Pentagon asking where we can become more militarily engaged…all these things lead to a war posture, including a soldier being killed at home.
A war posture is good for Harper’s base and makes Canadians more scared so that we more more disinclined to vote him out next year.
Don’t change horses in midstream, as the sick spin goes.
Expect Harper to manufacture/inflame more political strife and militarism in the months leading up to the federal election.
All of us should be profoundly uncomfortable that any politician would be speaking about this tragedy – and assigning motive – before the police. That is not the way our system works. And it raises the distinct possibility that Harper and his advisors are willing to reduce a soldier’s death to a talking point.
