I just don't get the lefties and their hate of anything American. Seriously, what is their problem? Does 80% of our trade mean nothing to them? Has the US ever invaded us? What is it? My take is that they hate success. If the US is successful, their socialist plans will fail.
Watch the negative articles if it is the Americans who provide us with the 1000 troops we need.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has assurances from U.S. President George Bush himself that the United States will provide the 1,000 troops required to keep Canada in Afghanistan if no other countries come forward, CTV News has learned.
HA, I knew that by watching PM Harper anytime he was questioned about the 1000 troops needed, he had a funny little smirk on his face, kind of like he was trying not to burst out laughing. Does anyone seriously think that PM Harper didn't already have those 1000 troops lined up?
Now the media is trying to make it sound like a Bush-Harper union of minds, yet they give the wimpy Europeans a pass.
We are not only fortunate to live in Canada, we are also very fortunate that we have the US as our neighbours.
CTV's South Asia Bureau chief, Paul Workman, spoke to Canada AM from Kandahar and said that the Canadian military will probably be disappointed that the French troops won't be assisting their mission.
"The Canadian Forces leadership might consider it a setback," Workman said of the report.
But Workman said there could be a bright side, with the French troops allowing for the possibility of freeing up American forces to be assigned to the Kandahar region.
Wow, let me see, Americans or French? Either would be acceptable. I think the Gerkas are great too. When it comes down to close ties, the US and Canadian troops are more used to working together, like Norad.
My cousin married a US Marine, I talked to some of the US guests, they have nothing but respect for our troops, they would willingly fight together with them. So why don't Canadians have the same respect for our troops? Why do Canadians talk about "supporting the troops", but not the mission?
The old hippy, peace/love NDP, would never support anything with a gun involved. The Bloq, is so arrogant, they think Quebec can survive without massive help from the rest of Canada. Go ahead, try it.
The Liberals might be split on this issue, but I give them credit for understanding that it's not about votes, it's about Canada's place in this world, so kudos to them for supporting both the troops and the mission! I also predict that the Liberals will all of a sudden LOVE America, if a Democrat gets to be the next President. HA.
Our best friends are the Americans. They always have been, and hopefully they always will be.
