“Our support will not end when the soldier leaves the army,” Mr. MacKay said.

Now I urge you all to watch this clip from YouTube, which lays out what I just wrote above. It is part of a five hour documentary from the ichannel several years ago that the cbc or the history channel will never show, showing just how disgusting the liberal government was back in the 1990's and DND as well, keeping quiet the Medak Pocket battle, the war dead, the hundred or so injured, and the fact that soldiers who had been wounded in battle and could no longer function in their units were booted out of the army altogether, some with NO compensation at all. Maybe these military men in the story above don't know their history. I urge them especially to watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3VfSU1rfSE&feature=related
The Liberals treated our troops like dirt. They sent them into impossible situations, than ignored their injuries and deaths. The liberal media helped them in covering up the deaths and injuries these troops, NOT peacekeepers, suffered. Yet, a maybe, possible knowledge of torture by Afghans to Afghans has the Liberals and other socialists in a tizzy.
Let the opposition not forget, that the government of the day does not need their okay to send our troops anywhere deemed necessary by the government of Canada. It is only under PM Harper that they have been given any voice at all, and what do they do with their expanded powers? They slander our troops by accusing them of being complacent with torture. These petty little politicians should never be allowed near our troops, who have more honour in their pinkie finger than any of those Hezbollah/Taliban loving idiots!
I applaud our government for recognizing that our troops need our support not only in battle, but after they have returned home. I know more needs to be done, but this is a great first step.
