    There's a saying we have here in Canada... If you won't stand behind our troops then try standing in front of them!

    To the peace activists....How exactly would you propose the world rid a murderous dictator killing his own innocent citizens?? Enjoy your freedoms hippie. They are inherited by the sacrifices of your fellow countrymen and many of those countries standing shoulder to shoulder today in defiance of oppression and dictatorship.
    "IF YOU WON'T STAND BEHIND OUR TROOPS, FEEL FREE TO STAND IN FRONT OF THEM". Maybe you could wave a sign or flower at Ghadaffi for us. See if he will surrender to you.

    I'm really getting tired of people thinking and calling the operations Canadian's are doing in Afghanistan 'peacekeeping'. It's not a peacekeeping mission. Get a clue on what the operation is. It's only ignorant Canadian's who believe the propoganda fed them from the Canadian media and past Liberal government crap. Wake up and get an education.

    A Canadian in Command? Well of course a Canadian. We win wars, unlike others... HA!
