CJ blames Canada

On West Wing they are trying to create an international coalition of peacekeepers to send to the middle east. CJ says something to the effect of “Canada? What kind of military do they have, anyway? Are they going to throw bottles of maple syrup?”

Very lame, for a few reasons. Wouldn’t CJ be a bit more informed, or is the fact that it’s Canada actually excuse an American official from having to be informed – when slagging off Canada will suffice? And of course, extra ironically lame because Canada has made an enormous contribution to peacekeeping, perhaps even larger in scale given the small military capability that Canada has.

And really, it was just offensive, and unnecessary.
