I wonder how one that is part of the armed forces which served in Afghanistan or the intelligence services patriots, how do they manage not to despise the political class? This is what Afghanistan was all for: Taliban closes universities to women In my estimation Afghanistan was a failure from the very beginning due to it being used a terminal to go after Saddam Hussein in Irak to finish an old obsession of some Bush era thinkers. Afghanistan was never treated as a priority in my view even though that is where the problem was. The problem was also inside Saudi Arabia which the political class never addressed. and who was behind the original flaw in this political failure in my opinion? Dick Cheney and Ronald Rumsfeld. 2 stains on the modern history of the United States of America from how I see it. They disregarded with disgust all the professionals in the intelligence community when it came to tactics and information in those areas. --> I agree with Jesse Ventura:
Canada has always been a loyal ally to the U.S. But is there a limit to this loyalty as Chretien once demonstrated? Will too much loyalty to America kill and terrorize more Canadians for no justiafiable reasons? At first I was of the attitude "Kill all those damn terrorists" until I read this article and realize that if some foreign troops invaded and occupied Canada because our leader refused to turn over Canada's oil fields for pennies on the dollar, we'd also be pissed off. And if we came home from work one day and found our home smoldering in flames and our spouse and kids charred black like coal from some stray missile, we would also be outraged and called "patriots" to seek revenge on the barbaric bastards responsible for the war crime. So today my opinion is a little more objective. Read this and see if your truly disagree or if you are just trying to be politically correct or a false patriot http://www.globalresearch.ca/prime-minister-stephen-harper-and-canadian-war-crimes-in-afghanistan/24473 This is why IMO Harper has helped to increase terrorism in the world today. Real terrorism must be stopped, but drones impose terrorism from 30,000 feet and Harper implicitly condones this by unconditionally supporting American policies in Afghanistan and Iraq. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2014/nov/24/-sp-us-drone-strikes-kill-1147 The UN and 57 countries have agreed that drones = terrorism and the war in Afghanistan is illegal. So should Canada really be fighting America's illegal war? Before you answer just think about how fairly America has treated Canada on past lumber and trade deals. Do they really deserve such unconditional loyalty or do we have the right to say "No Thank You" once in a while?
