Jonathan Kay discusses the rioting idiots and the security services that protect us. I am always dubious of these summits. The idiots have somewhat changed my mind.
The earth moved last Wednesday afternoon, both literally and metaphorically.
In parts of Ontario and Quebec and several northern U.S. states, an earthquake shook buildings and streets. In Washington, an incompetent and arrogant American president fired one of the finest military leaders the country has had in a half-century just as troops prepared for a major and vital campaign.
Nobody died due to the earthquake; people will die because of U.S. President Barack Obama’s hubris and pomposity.
What Gen. Stanley McChrystal said or allowed to be said by his staff about the Obama, U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden and a handful of senior advisers was rude and deserved a reprimand and warning. A bigger man than Obama — Bush or Reagan or even Clinton — would have done this. But not he who can do no wrong and has been told by the media for years now that he is god-like.
