The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

According to the U.S. State Department, there are about 15 countries, in addition to the publicly identified 'coalition of the willing,' who support the Bushies' position on removing Iraqi president Saddam Hussein. Canada is not one of them. This begs the question: how friggin' embarassed (or gutless) are these other 15 countries' governments? They support the Bushies, but aren't willing to own up to this. It speaks volumes about the Bush administration's utter inability to explain why they believe that it is now time to remove Hussein. Changing arguments as often as the Brits change their pop music idols didn't help -- was it about the September 11th terrorist attacks, disarming Saddam, humanitarianism, removing Saddam in favour of a U.S.-friendly regime (as outlined in a 1998 letter to Bill Clinton signed by the likes of Richard Perle, Don Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Bob Zoellick, Richard Armitage), what?
