How’s that working out with China and Iran?

In a laughably weak statement showing the messed up attitude of Canada’s foreign policy elites, the Liberal foreign minister Francois-Philippe Champagne says Canada’s “leverage” is “the international community.”:

“The leverage we have? It’s the international community.” @FP_Champagne says the world is watching Iran for its next move, especially relating to black boxes.”

Of course, outsourcing Canada’s leverage to other countries means we have no leverage at all, and it’s an attitude of total weakness.

People quickly pointed out how foolish Champagne’s remarks were:

“Is this the same ‘international community’ that was going to influence China to release the 2 Canadians???”

“Give Cdns a break, @FP_Champagne.

Park the spin.

You’re going to be judged on what you actually achieve in this matter, not on your messaging about it.”

“This has not stopped Iran from tampering with the evidence at the crash site, and Iran has not yet shared the black boxes or audio recordings. Watching is not making a difference.”

After decades imbibing media and government propaganda, many Canadians have an inflated assessment of our weight on the international stage. For them, China holding our hostages and Iran refusing to hand over the black box may surprise #cdnpoli

Canada’s foreign policy elites and political elites have turned our country into a weak and helpless nation. Our military is severely underfunded, our first reaction is to placate aggressors, and nobody respects or fears Canada.

And it’s only getting worse under this government.
