Re: Time For Don Cherry To Give Up The Pro-War TalkJan 12th, 2011
I just followed your lead rodent.
Must be a sad thing to have peaked there, grade seven for ever.

I've never seen Don Cherry make a statement in support of war or a political party on Coach's Corner. As far as the Afghan war is concerned, he only acknowledges the efforts and sacrifice of Canada's service men and women overseas.
Whether you support the Afghan war or not, we should all recognize that some Canadians who volunteered to serve in Canada's military risk their lives over seas and some have paid the ultimate cost while performing their duty.
If you have a problem with Canada's involvement in Afghanistan, then take it up with the Canadian politicians and leaders responsible.
Don Cherry is going over the top in "supporting the troops". Unless he stops I am in favour of kicking him off Coach's Corner. People who say they only want to support the troops, indirectly tell others to shut up because "How can you be against our Canadian boys?" And on and on they foam at the mouth. This stilfes debate on a serious topic. This is over the line and Don needs to be reined in if he doesn't stop. Which means kicked off the CBC.
Coach's Corner is not about politics. Don is fine sticking to hockey.

A group calling itself Hockey Fans for Peace will be at the Rogers’ Arena in Vancouver protesting Don Cherry’s Coach’s Corner support for our Canadian troops Saturday.
“He’s invoking the soldiers as a way of promoting the war,” Derrick O’Keefe of Stopwar.ca has been quoted as saying, adding Cherry is “100% pro-war.”
Kimball Cariou said the CBC should either “stop the promotion of militarism during hockey broadcasts, or else allow one of its members to debate Cherry” on Coach’s Corner.
Right! Cherry showing the pictures of our fallen soldiers is far more noble than trying to cheaply grab some national attention off our war dead.
One way Vancouver fans can show support for the troops, and tell all left-wing kooks to stick it in their pipe, is wear red at tonight’s game. Very few Canadians are on the Taliban’s side. Exale at my pal Augusto (Bong) Capitin’s place instead.
If Mr Cherry thinks that there's glory in war he should fight himself or give one of his own up for that glory instead of gleefully war mongering on public television, the preening buffoon would send his team over the top to die for the bankers without even the foggiest concept of this Afghan war. He's a piss poor role model for any form of life.
Sacrifice is thought to result in some ultimate reward, the word we really want is waste. I acknowedge the waste of a portion of this Canadian generation in a blood sacrifice to greed and power. I will never honor waste and murder and war. It's because we do that we are still at war. Their duty is to Canada not to anything else certainly not an imperial war of conquest on the other side of the planet that has no definition or purpose except to extend the rule of money. Make up your mind do you want peace or not?
Don Cherry is bang on.He strongly supports our troops and the job they are doing in Afghanistan.I wish more Canadians were like him.A lot of the dumb @ss comments on this suite make me puke.I can see there are a lot of clueless people making idiot comments here.They haven't got a clue as to what is being done in Afghanistan.Funny I don't see or read any comments about the evil of the Taliban.All of the these gutless wonders who made anti Don Cherry comments, seeing as you are so against the war in Afghanistan then perhaps you should get up off of your lazy @sses and go over there and demand that the Taliban stop their murderous war against the innocent people of Afghanistan.To those who criticize Don Cherry and his support for our troops, bet none of you idiots have ever set foot in Afghanistan, yet you mouth off about something you no nothing about.
Like Don Cherry, I too support our troops and mission in Afghanistan, because I understand why we are there..

Defending the territory controlled by known drug dealers.
You mean more Marijuana grow ops or harder stuff?
Comes to that neither do you.
The thread isn't about religious fanatics it's about Canadian troops being used as cannon fodder for the drug dealers who now constitute the Afghani government.
Like Don Cherry you have no clue and have never met an Afghani-a more duplicitous lot it's hard to imagine-like the Canadian politicians who have sold out their own troops.
If you want to support Canada's troops, I recommend starting with this website:
[BTW, the Taliban weren't our enemy until we went to their part of the world and attacked them. That would make us the hostile foreign invaders who came to their country to impose our values on them by force. I bet you wouldn't like it very much if the Taliban invaded Canada and attempted to impose their values on us by force.
FYI: The Taliban had nothing to do with the events of 9/11 and even condemned it at the time.
The taliban protected and aided binladen and would not co operate at all when asked to turn him over
for 'arrest' for the 911 attacks.
Binladen is not an afghan he is an arab, and several of the 911 attackers were arab, there was no
brotherly reason for taliban to protect binladen.
Taliban and binladen were thick as thieves at that time, and taliban were killing and destroying families
within that country.
They are not true afghans, they are intruders who were interferring with the afghan citizens.
The taliban made a 'huge' error in judgement by siding with 'him', and could have prevented
much bloodshedand had they turned him over to the u.s., they could have resumed
their mean and nasty ways they had with the citizens, so their poor judgement
hurt them, and prevented them from pushing their way into the leadership of the
Extradition is the official process whereby one nation or state surrenders a suspected or convicted criminal to another nation or state. Between nation states, extradition is regulated by treaties. Where extradition is compelled by laws, such as among sub-national jurisdictions, the concept may be known more generally as rendition.
There were a lot of mistakes made, if we had not gone into Iraq till the Afghanistan mission was over. It was estimated that bin Laden would have been captured or killed within 6 months if we had just stayed after him, we were so close. He is not so important now.
