The Last Quotomatic

"The End Of History"

It struck me, too, while watching it on TV that this is probably the last time that anyone will refer to Canadian troops as liberators. Oh, sure, we're still capable of small, shrivelled gestures like Martin's recent pledge to send 150 soldiers to Sudan. A transparently cynical gesture meant more to prop up his government than to do anything about the ongoing genocide in Darfur.

I wonder if those people will hold parades sixty years hence to celebrate the arrival of the Canadians. What will they praise them for? Watching? - gnotalex
