Things that are seriously pissing me off…

As the number of worldwide protests increase, I am noticing a serious increase in the number of ways other nations are trying to impinge on other nations’ sovereignty. Now, I am not going to debate the sanity of someone like Gaddafi. Clearly any leader of a nation who is willing to sacrifice his citizens does not deserve to be in control. When I hear Barrack Obama saying that Gaddafi should step down. What right does he have to interfere in the sovereignty of Libya or any other country? If/when the United Nations asks for assistance on behalf of Libya or any other country’s people that is the time to step in. Seriously, what if another leader of a country demanded that Obama step down based on the Tea Party protests?

The BC NDP are asking all of their leadership candidates to hand over their passwords to their social media websites as a way to vet the candidates. Seriously, what a huge invasion of privacy not only of the candidates but anyone else they are connected to on these sites. One would think that any potential leadership candidates would be aware of the pitfalls of social media and not post anything that could be used against them. And, if they are that stupid and they post something, then they deserve to be embarrassed by it.

  1. I’m shocked that the NDP would ask for such a thing.

  2. To be fair, if Obama was using the US Army and police forces to kill American Citizens who were protesting against him, then I think other countries have the right (or the duty) to demand he step down. (Of course, he could just ignore everyone as Gaddafi is doing.)

    • Of course the Gaddafi situation is crazy and wrong. Any action to be taken is to be decided by the UN not other countries. My point remains that it is inappropriate to challenge the sovereignty of another nation. The sovereignty of the nation-state is one of the foundations of world organization.

  3. I can’t even believe a Canadian political party would ask that of their leadership candidates. Truly shocking!!!
