The avalanche of proof provided by Wikileaks that the U.S., and U.K., governments have been indulging in what millions have been convinced of for a very long time: just about every kind of underhand, lying, cheating, muderous skulduggery, with quite an enlightening amount of sneering and back biting towards their “allies.” Predictably, they are now moving heaven and earth to shoot the messenger.
If every government Minister who had allegedly indulged in a frolic with a couple of ladies had an international arrest warrant issued against him, as in the case of Julian Assange, there would be some pretty empty parliaments. In Canada, Professor Tom Flanagan, a former advisor to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, went further, proposing that assassination was appropriate. Speaking on CBC., he suggested that President “Nobel” Obama should: “put out a contract and maybe use a drone or something.” When the programme’s anchor suggested this was :”… pretty harsh stuff”, Flanagan responded that he was: “… feeling very manly today.” Is there a doctor out there?
In the U.S., former Presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee and ex-Pentagon official Kathleen McFarland, called for the execution of those responsible. McFarland, comes from the Reagan, Weinberger, Kissinger stable of “manly” stallions, having worked in a key position for the former, been a speech writer for the second and a key member of the latter’s National Security Council staff. Huckabee is former Governor of Arkansas, now host on Fox News and a Baptist Minister – clearly of Old Testament, hellfire and damnation persuasion.
