Why Is Canada Selling LAVs to Saudi Arabia?

  1. We wouldn’t want those Arabs, especially Saudi Arabia’s Shiites, getting uppity, John. They showed in Egypt that they can’t be entrusted with things like democracy. Why, they elect people we don’t like!

  2. But they are “ethical” LAVs, right?
    “Canada cannot sit on the sidelines while people are being oppressed!”
    No, we will jump right in and sell the tools to do the oppressing.
