  Someone in the frozen north gets half a clue
I have said it before, when does a country stop being a country? When they cannot project force to protect their borders, let alone affect matters outside of their Urban Centers.
Calgary Sun Columnist - Ian Robinson: Canada crippled by dishonest pacifism: "Canada has become a nation crippled by a dishonest pacifism. Rather than announce we're wimps, we pretend in the councils of the powerful that we'll send our soldiers to fight ... but only if the stars are aligned just so.

We'll send 'peacekeepers,' an abominable word that denies the reality that it is only the application of brute and vicious force in the disordered and deadly precincts of the world that can ensure peace.

If you read the commentary in the powerful eastern media or listen to our politicians, it becomes clear that Canadians want social workers with guns they'll never use, not warriors.

So let's decide. If we want warriors, then let's create an Armed Forces that can fight, anywhere, anytime to fulfil our obligations to our allies, to history, to ourselves. If not, then let us quit pretending.

Lay our soldiers off."
