We Deliver Natural Disaster Relief Supplies In 30 Minutes, Or It's Free
The new motto of the Canadian Armed Forces?

Will they even be considered "Armed Forces" if the brain-dead liberals in Canada have their way?

Here's what's up.... there's an interesting little poll being taken up in Canada. Specifically, it asks the musical question if Canada should even have a war-fighting military.

It's no big shocker that 71% of Quebecers wanting to "scrap any combat role for the Canadian Forces". And I guess the good news is that the down-home country folk of rural Alberta... four in ten that is, want a 'peacekeeping only' military. That's the good news? "Only" four in ten Albertans are opposed to a combat-capable military?

That giant earthquake that just hit The Great White North? All the Canuck WWI, WWII, and Korean War vets rolling over in their graves. But I gotta tell ya, it's the Canadians who have already served their nation honorably are the ones I feel sorry for. To even discuss turning Canada's proud military into nothing more than a global Meals-On-Wheels... that's embarrassing.

I admit, I heartily agree with the author of this story, Mark Steyn, who says;

If this poll is correct, it's fascinating. Fascinating in the sense that a terminal illness is fascinating. First, if it's any consolation to those six out of ten warmongering Albertans, the numbers in most Continental countries would probably be even worse. Afghanistan, for example, is officially a NATO mission to which most NATO members are contributing. But they're not contributing troops, not if by troops you mean fellows with guns who are prepared to fire them at the other side. The Continentals mostly have very circumscribed rules of engagement, which prevent them from participating in combat operations, or going out in the snow, or even after dark. So they're confined to "securing" a handful of selected sites--i.e., they're glorified night watchmen in fancier livery. *When it comes to hunting down and killing the enemy, it's pretty much down to the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia (which isn't even in NATO). So much for multiculturalism. That quartet's about as unicultural as you can get, not to say, given that three of them share the same head of state, uniregal.

* I said the very same thing months ago on this blog.

[note: the Canadian flag I have pictured, flying upside down, is not a sign of disrespect on my part. Any nation's flag flying upside down is the international sign of distress]

Our country is in distress all right, but not for the reasons you think. Our politicians have abandoned all faith, they allow gay marriages, the Catholic Church is a far cry from what it should be, abortion is prevalent, and euthanasia is being practiced on the sly and overlooked by the legal professions. Yes, we're in moral distress, and we need more than fighting armed forces to bring us out of it. Canada needs a Saviour.
