Forget a Debate: Canadians Support the Troops

Save this online in Del.icio.us. [?] Vote For this Post

Forget a debate on the role of our troops. Canadians are writing them a'plenty, and judging by their uniform support, a debate is pointless.
Besides, saying you want a debate three years after sending the troops is a) late b) counter-productive small-time politicking. Canadians see the dumb partisan politics, and don't like the hypocrisy in their elected officials. Furthermore, the troops see it, and think they're lacking in support back home.
Well, here's a little something to show where Canadians hearts are. Jenn of Kitchener Ontario says it best: "Hey to all of you. THANKS!" From the Department of National Defence, here's what people are writing.

I hope that you follow your heart and remember that everyone is a person who has a family, a past and a dream, just like you.

Hi,
how are you? I have never written one of these before, so please excuse me if I sound a little awkward; I am just not quite sure what to say. I hope that you are not in any kind of danger right now and that you wont ever have to be. I could never really decide whether being in the army would be lonely or if one makes lots of friends there. I hope that you aren't lonely. I hope that you believe in what you are doing and believe in yourself and that you are happy. Good Luck!

During WW2 the French Resistance was a brilliant, colaberative movement supplied by many Allied forces to defeat the threat of Facisim. It was a Nobel cause for freedom and democracy. The Taliban and Al-Qiada are waging a similar style of warfare, however their cause is anything but nobel... Terrorism is a cowardly act when it takes the lives of innocent civilians and claims itself to be an honorable one.
We know our efforts will succeed as we hold true to our committment in Afghanistan.

I am now almost 60. I spent 8 years in the Armed Forces some years ago.

I think that what you are doing is extremely important. Criminals must be stopped. People with legitimate ends will at least begin by negotiating.

Good luck!!
