    Aaron Perry--a member of Furlong's sniper team--was also investigated by the RCA for this trouble, too.

    Yeah and? The Canadian made the Shot.....didn't he! One less Enemy Combatant on the Field. One Less Bell To Answer!

    At what cost though. Iran, knowing they have a US problem are now blowing smoke to our neighbor. Doesn't seem like a rational thing to do, yet that's what they did.

    Don't like it? Don't want me to do it? Don't play the numbers game with me and it won't happen. Fair enough?
    Canada didn't HAVE to send any of them. Which would make a total of ZERO KIA. But they did. Respect should be shown for their dead also.

    adpst-
    really? you have to play that crap? The P51 Mustang was a dog until a Merlin engine was stabbed into it, THEN is became a war winner. Much of our carrier innovations come from the Brits. Our military owes much to other nation's designs and advancements.

    Given the fact Canada is 35 million to our 300 million, the World Trade Centers were in NYC AND when NATO invoked the mutual defense clause Rummy and friends dismissed them as only going to get in our way. I am amazed anyone was willing to send troops to support the missions in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Only AFTER we bogged down in Iraq did we suddenly embrace our NATO allies

    I love a good Canuck bashing, I don't consider yours as good natured ribbing. I had the honor of training with their soldiers, had the honor of shooting competitively with a few of 'em, even spotted for a few black powder boys from Regina when they came down to shoot our 1000 yard range. That was some shooting!

    I'd say some don't give the Canadians enough credit, perhaps due to a victim posture where everyone is always attacking poor lil old US, and if every post doesn't have a cow tow to the US some folks get all wack-o.

    Mya-
    Having read your posts in many threads I am reminded of a Greek myth about a daughter of King Priam. She had the gift of prophesy and the curse of never being believed. I hope that myth gives you comfort as you see Islamic danger at every turn and we mere mortals scoff at so clear a vision...

    "The current government of Canada under the leadership of Mr Stephen Harper is known for extreme policies in the domain of foreign policy," Mehr news agency quoted Mehmanparast as saying.

    "The hostile behaviour of the current racist government in Canada in reality follows the policies dictated by the Zionists (Israel) and the British."


    This sounds like comedy to me.

    That's not calling anyone a coward, my man. Relax.
