The Invasion of Norway
Yesterday I took a swipe at Dubya, so in an effort to be "fair and balanced", today is Prime Minister Paul Martin's turn.
When addressing 350 soldiers at the CFB Gagetown training base outside Fredericton, New Brunswick, Martin made the following statement.
Sixty years ago, Canadians were working alongside their British and American allies planning for the invasion of Norway and the liberation of Europe...Today, it is every bit as important that Canada step forward -- just as we did during the invasion of Norway.
Ouch. I'm fairly certain our fearless leader meant Normandy, where on June 6, 1944, Canadian soldiers stormed Juno Beach with the allies to defend Europe. Had Dubya made this statement, I'd have jumped all over him like white on rice. Martin really should have known better.
Serves those Norwegian bastards right!!!
