  1. Waltz had it completely backwards: bipolarity ALWAYS causes conflict. Nukes were the reason the cold war was cold. Thucydides had it right.

    • It almost seems like Cold War style deterrents are like a drunken man on a finite-length bridge who staggers one step left or right randomly. Mathematically it is certain he will eventually stumble off the bridge.

      How long will it be until some religious nutbag who thinks he’ll get a pat on the head from his invisible Sky Daddy after he dies sets off some nuclear weapons and ruins life for everyone else?

  2. Given Trudeau’s problems arising from his attempt to end the prosecution of SNC Lavalin because of political considerations, I would not expect him or his Attorney General to refuse to surrender Meng except for a reason clearly set out in the Extradition Act. Unfortunately, I don’t see “it will upset China” in sections 44 to 47 of the Act. Even more unfortunately, I don’t see “it may lead to China executing a Canadian citizen” in those sections either.

  3. Both Trump and Trudeau have ‘fired’ their initial Attorney’s General for failing to comply with their attempts to ‘over-ride’ the rule of law for personal political advantage. Who knew they would be ‘birds of a feather?’

    Another Mar a Lago summit planned. I wonder when the House will get around to this blatant abuse of the Emoluments Act?
