Dion helps Harper stay in Afghanistan -- again

Turns out that Stephen Harper's most loyal ally in the war in Afghanistan isn't the US, or the UK, or Australia: it's Stephane Dion and the Liberal Party of Canada.

Every single Liberal MP voted to help the Conservatives defeat an NDP motion that would have begun the immediate withdrawal of Canadian troops from the combat mission in Kandahar.

If Dion is smart enough to conclude today that the mission won't be worth supporting in February 2009, how can he possibly argue that it's worth supporting in April 2007?

With this betrayal of ordinary Canadians, Liberals have made it clear that they aren't opposed to the ill-defined mission even in the midst of the prisioner abuse scandal.
