I'll tell you why. I think they know who did it. I think they know it was a Canadian soldier. They have alluded to that. I think they also know that when there was a US-Canadian blue on blue they (Canada) wanted the heads of the pilots immediatlely.
Now they have egg on their face because it has happened to them and the negligent party is one of their own. Do they want to crucify the Canadian soldier? Of course not. Should they? Of course not unless he did it on purpose which I doubt.
So it is better to let this story fade away and ignore the tragic incident or look like the hypocrits that they truly are.
Oh my oh my am I in the wrong place????
There is another one where everyone is arguing that the U.S. military shot this poor guy.....
I thought this particular thread might be an homage to the slain soldier
That is what I am going on about.... and you have now joined Mikey in your complete disregard or respect.....
Why is it ok to hijack a thread to get a point across SNFU
Is it so important that you and Mickey be heard? You have to infect what could have been a kindness instead of yet another attack expounding personal opinion....it isn't all about you.... there's plenty of room for you and Mickey to make your mark.
As I said before - start another topic thread and do the oratorical deed..... why not just leave this thread alone for a bit of a memorial.
Well you knew the pot called the kettle black don't you. Everybody's make great points yet everybody is sort of ranting about the others. No biggie. I think we should honour the fallen soldier even if the war is unjust. But the fact still remains the war is unjust. Sort of a catch 22 thingy. Not really an upside.
I'm saddened by anyone sacrificed to injustice and corruption...particularly when clothed in the pumped-up terrorist climate of today. Our young people shouldn't even be involved in this "war". If financial and trade sanctions was honestly expected to be sufficient in stopping Saddam Hussein and Iraq from building WMD and posing a threat to the world, how is it that a shooting war in Afghanistan is more pressing? Why hasn't anyone answered my question regarding why the poppy fields and the criminals behind the Taliban regime haven't been brought to justice? Why is it that our attention is focused on the cruelty of this kind of event when the larger horror of the entire affair deserves accountability from those behind the carnage?
Big pharmaceutical corporations guided by the wealthy leaders of tomorrow want exclusivity and to capture the corner on supply.... Once again we see the best interests of the many sacrificed to ensure the wealth of the few...those ambitious successful potential leaders....
I will honor the slain military even if it is one or two posts speaking my gratitude.
Again it isn't about me or any of the detractors here .... it is about the slain soldier. It always will be.
