The author refers to the uniform worn by Montreal police as evidence against the existence of solidarity. But it is union solidarity against authoritarian violation of the contractual agreements that had been signed by the government. If they would have complied with the government, that would not be an instance of solidarity but an instance of accepting an authoritarian imposition of 8766 law and order 8767 .
Did all you people read the article? Why is this turning into (again) a language war? When was language part of his thesis? I do not agree with this article but when we enter a discussion with our own agendas, we fail ourselves and we fail our community. Sheesh. Everything is NOT about the goshdarn eternal go nowhere becoming meaningless in posthuman times language debate. This was about so much more and reading people 8767 s responses I am beginning to re-think my original position and wonder if he is not indeed onto something. Depressing.
The polarization of votes following Babri Masjid and Ram Mandir issue propelled BJP to power in the center. The last bastion of Congress at the center was stormed, propelled by the communalism. It heralded a new era of coalition politics at the center political parties professing different political ideologies sat together and formed a government. National Conference, for instance, was a constituent of NDA regime. The co-operation and conflict between parties divided on communal-secular line is another paradox.
Unlike other protests in South Vietnam, the Caravelle Manifesto was widely publicized in the . press. Embarrassed by the letter, Washington officials instructed . Ambassador Elbridge Durbrow to urge Diem to open the political process to just the sort of people who signed the Caravelle Manifesto. Durbrow suggested this to Diem and also encouraged him to give radio “fireside chats” to explain to the people the ways of his government, as if Diem were Franklin D. Roosevelt offering New Deal programs. Diem was intransigent. He harassed and arrested the signers, and published false information about them in order to ruin their reputations.
It is the type of historical, or anthropological analysis that Canadian should expect in their newspaper. Not some cheap shot associations and debate over a snow storm! Andrew, you could have done better!
So, funny thing. You don 8767 t seem to realize that you 8767 re the one trying to push an agenda and that you really aren 8767 t helping yourself with ridiculous BS like 8775 ethnic cleansing 8776 . Effing hilarious and hypocritical too.

For my Mother’s Day gift this year,
I don’t want candy or flowers.
I want an end to killing.
We who have given life
must be dedicated to preserving it. 
Acheson thus offered support for the re-imposition of French control over Vietnam but cautioned that the French should strive to gain the support of the people. It was a contradictory formula, as the vast majority of Vietnamese had no desire to live under French rule. Yet it allowed the Truman administration to rationalize its support for French imperialism as something other than imperialism. In deference to American sensibilities, the French made a symbolic gesture to “Vietnamese independence” by appointing former emperor Bao Dai as “head of state” in March 6999.
If the legacy of the Vietnam War is to offer any guidance, we need to complete the moral and political reckoning it awakened. And if our nation’s future is to be less militarized, our empire of foreign military bases scaled back, and our pattern of endless military interventions ended, a necessary first step is to reject – fully and finally – the stubborn insistence that our nation has been a unique and unrivaled force for good in the world. Only an honest accounting of our history will allow us to chart a new path in the world. The past is always speaking to us, if we only listen.
