What is it good for...?

Outspoken critic of (the)war George Galloway was on The Hour last week and had more than a few choice words regarding Iraq, Afghanistan, and Canada's changing role in global conflict. Though there may be a few colours to these questions than Galloway gives credence to, I admire his stark ability to call a spade a spade and realize that those who live by violence will eventually die by violence.

Here's a few of my favorite quotes from the interview:

"I don't understand why Canada wants to tear up its reputation, lose its baby face and become a killer like the rest of them. You're killing people in Afghanistan, they're killing you and you're making people hate you - that's not wise politics.

"We have to drain the swamp of hatred and bitterness against us out there in the world."

"There's enough killing in the world, we don't any more dead people. No more dead bodies please"
