Yes, It's George W. Bush, President of the US of A on the left and Stephen Harper (or Satan from Hell as I call him) so-called Prime Minister of Canada on the right.
Both of the clowns are past their expiry date (sell-by date).
We have a slight chance of getting Harper out if we can persuade our Members of Parliament that he's not behaving responsibly. In that case there would be a vote of non-confidence and yet another national election called and we'd have to find yet another leader for this poor sore country.
In the States, correct me if I'm wrong, I can only vaguely remember back to the 1970's when Nixon was under attack and eventually impeached, the rigamarole is considerably more complicated in the case of the national leader. I encourage all Americans to go for it, impeaching Bush, that is.

. Hm...Bush has no responsibility in the matter? Easy to cast the blame.
Harper's just along for the ride too! Just a war party animal, that one!

Subject: Harper Aligning Canada with the US and Britian
TO: Opposition Party Leaders, Government of Canada,
Jean Crowder, MP Cowichan-Nanaimo
Dear Opposition Party Leaders and Jean Crowder:
I am writing to express deep concern for Canada's reputation on the world scene and the security of Canadian citizens on the domestic front.
The following article, as are many other sources, has lumped Canada in with both the present United States and British administrations in basically supporting the Israelis war on Lebanon. This is truly alarming and is diametrically opposed to the majority will of the people of Canada.
After walking away from Afghanistan, the United States and Britian decided to turn away from the so-called legal operation and embark on another course. Together they launched an invasion of Iraq, which most experts agree is illegal. Now these nations are, through inaction and words, supporting the Israeli war on Lebanon and Stephen Harper, in a minority government situation, is dragging our country along with the US and Britain into sustained madness.
Harper has even gone so far as to condemn the United Nations for having observer posts in the war zone absolving the Israelis from the responsibility of having bombed to death unarmed, non-combative UN personnel, including one Canadian. It is becoming glaringly obvious that the Israelis want the United Nations removed from Lebanon so they can bomb the country into oblivia without observers. Harper's complicit silence has been deafening.
This must end! Our nation must not be seen as either complicit nor guilty by association. Fly with the crows, you get shot at!
Harper is proving himself inept, incompetent and unqualified for his position, not to mention dangerous for our country. Therefore, I most emphatically encourage the Opposition Parties to reconvene parliament and, through a vote of non-confidence, remove Harper and his Conservatives from power and return our country to it's reputation as a peace-keeping multi-cultural tolerant nation...in other words a PEACEMONGER!
XXXX, B. C.
