Michael Who?

"He found someone bent on seeking redemption and a man who aspired to be a winning politician, having only ever led one revolution – a protest against a pajama party at Upper Canada College."

...think of him as the Anti-Jack...
-- DEAUVILLE, France (Reuters) -- Group of Eight leaders had to soften a statement urging Israel and the Palestinians to return to negotiations because Canada objected to a specific mention of 1967 borders, diplomats said Friday.

The government has adopted a staunchly pro-Israel position in international negotiations since coming to power in 2006, with Prime Minister Stephen Harper saying Canada will back Israel whatever the cost.
Pop quiz, folks... name the only democratic country in the entire Middle East.

Poor Count I - pity he was so tramautized by his experioences.

I grew up in 'wartime' housing. That was built for, and occupied by, veterans of WWII. To this day, I do not know what the fathers of my playmates experienced; they were silent. I find it hard to believe that the men who conquered Hitler and liberated the western concentration camps had worse experiences than that of the Count.

Only when a beloved uncle died was it revealed that he relived his experiences during the Italy campaign (he was wounded at Ortona) during nightmares, which his wife soothed. I wonder how many of the men I grew up among had like nightmares, with wives likeways calming things down.
