Lorne Gunter may have said it best - A shocking suggestion from Dion:
...I know his staff now insist Dion meant diplomatic interventions, but that is not what he said. He said plainly that if the Pakistan government could or would not take action forcefully to track terrorists who slip into Afghanistan, "We could consider that option with the NATO forces in order to help Pakistan help us pacify Afghanistan."
Unless NATO's small diplomatic corps has recently taken to calling itself "NATO forces," Dion clearly meant a military invasion.
He is either completely reversing his earlier position on our mission, or is incapable of leading a national government.
The fundamental issue here is the crucial need for clarity of communication as a world leader. Unfortunately for Stephane Dion, this is his Achilles' heel.
I'll take a bully over a bumbler any day.
