Tanks for nothing

Was there another way yesterday for Lt-Gen Andrew Leslie to keep being a thorn in the Harper government's side this week by reminding everyone about the Leopard tank acquisition debacle? Why yes there was: "Bring tanks: Canadians tell Americans headed to Kandahar."

Shorter Leslie summation from the week: our tanks are MIA, we can barely maintain the ones we do have, anything else is futile in dealing with the Taliban, so you Americans better bring tanks. And did I mention how important the tanks are?
