Stabbed in the Back: A Cross-Border Meme

As I’m checking Google Reader today I see that Matthew Yglesias has post on how American conservatism has started attributing military failure to “national will” or rather the supposed lack thereof implied in the “stabbed in the back” meme. Meanwhile Red Tory points out that Andrew Coyne is looking to very same meme to shore up Canadian support for the ongoing mission in Afghanistan. Usually Harper is a couple years behind mimicking the GOP machine, he appears to have caught up.
