Kenney tweet begs the question

Jason Kenney tweet

Dear editor,

I saw a tweet from Minister of Defence, Jason Kenney, sitting in the cockpit of that shiny new C 17 Globemaster at Trenton.

The tweet (pictured at right)  read “allowing us to project Canada around the world.”

Now all of that is real nice, but tell me, why did Russia have to go and get our Canadian citizens out of Yemen while they were picking up their own, a few days ago? You know Yemen, that small country Saudi Arabia is bombing back into the last stone age?

I do say, if Pakistan, China, Egypt, Sudan are flying their citizens out of Yemen why can’t Canada?

Is it because the Canadians in Yemen are Muslim and/or Arab? Inquiring taxpaying citizens would like to know. I’d like to know why the government of Canada, with five new C 17 Globemasters, can’t get our citizens out of Yemen. Are we so busy bombing and killing in Iraq and Syria that we need Russia to save Canadians from being bombed to death by our “good friends” from Saudi Arabia?
