Six In The Morning: Rogue States Edition Starring Syria, North Korea And Alberta

1 NOW WHAT? There’s no peace in sight for Syria. The ceasefire is kaput. The  army is shelling refugee camps in Turkey. Here’s Al Jazeera’s Syria blog.

2 TESTING NUKES AND LAUNCHING ROCKETS Oh North Korea, you silly rogue state.

3 IT DEPENDS WHAT COSTS YOU ACTUALLY LOOK AT Canada’s Defence minister knew the glitchy F-35s would be more expensive than he’d told Canadians, but Peter MacKay says his numbers — which don’t include maintenance and personnel costs — are reasonable.

4 CALL OF THE WILD (ROSE)  The Globe has a nice, readable feature on the Wild Rose party’s prospects in Alberta’s provincial election campaign. Also, did you hear the one about the Tory candidate who was roughed up by a Wild Rose supporter? Hahaha!


6 AND THERE’S OTHER NEWS STUFF Rest in peace, Mike Wallace, The Canadian navy might have murdered a killer whale, Obama’s Supreme Court politicking gets scrutinized, Newt Gingrich is a loser who won’t quit, here’s an update on autism research, a Conservative MP says ignorant and vicious things about transsexuals, meanwhile, gays and lesbians are getting murdered in Brazil and self-appointed moralists pick on a video game for not being bigots like them. Ugh, that’s depressing. Here, have a video!
