Operation Objection

As drive for new enlistees picks up, so does ‘counter-recruiting.’

“We are the Canadian Forces, and our job is to be able to kill people” — General Rick Hillier, July 13, 2005.

With these words, the head of the Canadian Forces opened what has become a sustained campaign to transform the nature of this country’s army. Hillier’s statement was also a very public salvo in the ongoing effort to put Canada’s foreign policy on a permanently more aggressive footing.

Wow, the ignorance of you simpletons is truely astounding. The CDS did not change anything about the nature of our army, but clearly opened a few ignorant and wholly childish eyes. Morons like you are more then directly responsible for the genocide in Rawanda when you whined, complained, and protested to succesfully remove “peacekeepers” from there in the lead up to the genocide. We predicited the genocide months in advance, and asked for permission and resources to stop it, and douche bags like you sai “make love not war!”… End result? 800,000+ dead men, women and children.

When did peace activist call for peace keepers to be removed from Rwanda.. NEVER. The world wanted action. The governments of France, Canada, and the United States,as well as the UN failed to act as they were looking out for the were looking out for their own interests, passing the violence off to ancient ethnic tensions (not true) and refusing to acknowledge or label the genocide. Belgium removed its peace keepers after suffering losses, but were also complicit in the genocide and the historical ethnic division of the people.

Much as the peace activists are calling for peace keepers in Dafur, they did during Rwanda.

Find proof of your allegation Jeff and post it here. If you’re going to charge something like that, back it up!!!

Mogadishu Effect. Research it. I know that fact finding is not something you and your ilk are comfortable with… So much easier when the “fantasy fairy” whispers in your ear some more garbage to spew.
