Questions from an Irritable Dermatologist Who Reads

(With apologies to Bertholt Brecht, an irritable genius.)

How many goddam Canadian tanks are in Afghanistan?
How much did it cost to send them there? What are they doing?

Is Canada's Afghanistan operation legal? What about Section 51 of the United Nations Charter? What would the International Court of Justice advise?

Why is Rick Hillier an inspirational speaker? How much does he charge?
Should he be clearing land mines in Afghanistan?

Who the hell is Roland Paris? How does he get space in the Globe and Mail? Does he get money from the Department of National Defence?

How many prisoners have Canadian troops captured in Afghanistan? Where are they now? Where are their records?

So many questions.
So much bullshit.
