Seeing that Canada is going into the red again, always making war an excuse, isn't it essentially revealing the same cowardly lack of backbone its WWII counterparts exhibited?
If we want to go to war, fine, but let's at least show the moral leadership necessary to raise the taxes to pay for this war. It would seem our current government would rather fight the war and let us know the real costs later. heck, even the military has declared the real cost of the war secret for national security reasons... from our elected officials! And the government defends it!
So much for fiscal conservatism.
