It was inspired by the tragic deaths of 4 Canadian soldiers yesterday in Afghanistan, but from comment 1 it was clearly evident that the news was just an excuse for yet another anti-military/US, pro-Taliban rant from the lunatic fringe.
You are unlikely to find a more open discussion from today's extreme left about their thoughts about the military than this one.
Here's just one comment:
"Well I got news for you--4 dead and 2200 to go--
and I hope 'they die and die like flies' as Nina Simone might say..."
I will never understand the 'compassionate' left's inability to set any moral standards. What they demand of their governments here, equality for all, tolerance, etc.. they then condemn them for elsewhere.I'll just leave it at that because otherwise I could go on all day about how much people like 'Unionist' and 'Fear-ah' disgust me.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his brother."These four men, and all their fellow men and women in uniform, not only understood the true meaning of that phrase, but lived it.
