More banana dominion stuff

Further to this post,
Afghan detainees: Parliament is a farce
my Canadian politico-military thought for the evening, with our Afghan military mission primarily in mind.

The Americans, seemingly, invented modern "attack politics". Focused on negative advertising. While Canadian political advertising still is nothing like--in terms of bite--the American, our federal politicians themselves, government and opposition, when appearing on television, do almost nothing other than mindlessly savage their opponents without regard to any reasonable debate about the issues at hand. In the case at hand right now Afghan detainees. Most unlike their US counterparts when on the screen, tube, whatever.

Canada. Kinder? Gentler? Any, er, intelligence? No links. Discuss.

As Linda Richmond of "Coffee Talk" might say when she'd get verklempt:

"The civil debate surrounding the Afghan detainee issue is neither civil nor a debate - discuss."
