Liveblogging the Debate: Free-for-All: Canada in Iraq

Not suprisingly, Duceppe is all for Canadian involvement as long as it's under UN jurisdiction. Assnat. Oh oh oh. Brilliant. Harper just answered Layton's accusation of "Admit you knew there were no WMDs" by referring to Martin's recent statement suggesting they were taken by terrorists. Also pushing that getting rid of Saddam was a good thing - probably something that a sizable number of Canadians are for, I'm hoping. Martin, you idiot. Russian RPGs are not WMDs. On the plus side, he's for having Canadian troops train Iraqi police forces; it's as good a place as any to get involved, I guess. I can't fault him for that, though I still will on the UN fetish. Layton, as usual, thinks the UN is the highest possible moral authority, ergo he's against missile defense in any way. It'd be a shame to be able to stop North Korea or Iran from nuking California, n' stuff. Martin is waffling - not good. Trying to both support cooperation on missile defense and claim the Liberals are against the "weaponization of space." Harper again scores - treaties should be voted on by the House, not pushed by the PM's office alone. Duceppe agrees. Bingo bango! He's great as an anti-Liberal spoiler, I suppose; freed of the need to prove himself to potential voters in the English debate, he can just snipe from the sidelines. Spiffy.
