Never thought I’d say this…

But I support the Prime Minister in his recent comments about the Western world’s responsibilities in the wake of September 11.

Many people were quick to jump on him, accusing him of blaming the victims for the attacks. Despite Mr. Chretien’s bumbling english (favourite line in the article: “The wonderful thing about Canada and the United States is we probably have two of the most inarticulate leaders in the western world, so figuring out what either of them is trying to say is a challenge“), I think he makes a fair point: That the Western world needs to take a long hard look at the consequences of the growing divide between rich and poor nations.

The comments sparked a great discussion over at Metafilter.
