O Canada! - New World Power?

Canada's socialist government has decided that it needs more influence in the world. To this end, they are planning increasing their military spending $10 billion in the next 5 years. The increased spending will be used to add 5,000 troops, more helicopters and more ships to their already underextended military. Canada doesn't really need their existing troops, much less 5,000 new ones. Perhaps they're going to use the new troops to guard against all the illegal immigrants flooding into Canada across their southern border.

Prime Minister Paul Martin, not content with the current redistributuon of weatlh within Canada, would also like to extend the redistribution to the rest of the world by doubling Canada's foreign aid in the next 5 years.

Sounds to me like somebody in Canada has been reading about the old Soviet system of 5-year plans the USSR used to effectuate change.

And how does PM Martin plan on paying for all this new found influence? Canadian taxes, already some of the highest in the world, seem to have nowhere to go but up. On second thought, perhaps the additional troops will be used to keep Canadian taxpayers from fleeing the oppressive taxation.

The Washington Post has an article posted today detailing Martin's desire for additional power.
