Anti-Globalization G20 Peaceniks Bomb Canadian Military
It's hard to think of a starker example of hypocrisy than the "peaceful" anti-globalization protesters who bombed a Canadian Forces Recruiting Center the other day. From the National Post:
"Some of these groups make the parallel between international capitalism and economic imperialism. In their minds, there is a link between military ventures and economic imperialism," said Mr. Sarra-Bourne, who specializes in nationalism and federal-provincial political relations. "This gives them ammunition to criticize all the different aspects of what they call imperialism."
In an email sent to media yesterday, Resistance internationaliste summed up its opposition to Canadian military practices by referencing the war in Afghanistan and police violence at last weekend's G20 summit.
It's very much in line with the recent actions of "humanitarian aid" volunteers who decided to slightly augment their "civil disobedience" activities with knives, iron bars and other weapons.
In a democracy, real dissenters make their point with flags, posters and slogans -- not bombs. It's worth noting here that the target was not merely some after-hours Starbucks or a bank. Resistance Internationaliste has decided to wage war on the Canadian state. That isn't protest. That's war.
They dearly deserve what's coming to them.
