An apology from a Canadian...
    #1442119 - 04/09/03 09:05 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

On behalf of many Canadians... (not all of them... obviously) I would like to apologize for our lack of support in the War Against Iraq.

Our leader, our Prime Minister, is NOT a good representation of our country. I know that myself, and many Canadians like me are ashamed in our position in this situation.

I think that our troops SHOULD be out there... fighting right beside yours. Canada and America are friends. They have been friends for many years, and although we've had all the debates on who's country is better, we all know that we should be equals, and we should be friends. We're neighbours, and I am embarrased that our leader chooses NOT to help our neighbours in a time of need.

We may one day need your help, but your President may not be willing to give it, because of the choices of our PM.

I am not proud to say that this man is representing my country. Americans, and many other people around the world are getting a bad impression of what our morals are, and because of this one man, for the first time in my life I am shamed in my country. Don't get me wrong... I am still proud to be Canadian... DAMN proud.

I just want to let the Americans know that there are millions of Canadians who want to help our neighbours, and friends... but are not allowed to do so...

Because of one fucking prick.

I am sorry.

Let me be the first to say thank you.  Oh, and after Iraq you know we're coming after you for legalizing marijuana.  :grin:

I think it might just be decriminalized.

Just remember that MANY of us, if not MOST of us, want to be out there with you guys... we might need help in a peace rally or protest or something one day.

Fuck war  :smirk:

Peace is where it's at.

And honestly America....what the fuck do you need our help for?

Looks like you can handle things on your own.

Canada is peace. We don't need any wars.  :smirk:

I'm with Trendal and anyone else who can think with their head.

FUCK WAR!

Fuck the United States of America's Governments propoganda.
Fuck their inbred leader Bush. Fuck chainey. Fuck everyone who instigated this war just to boost their economy and "unite the people against a common foe".

All you idiots accept the "NEW WAR!" as the next best sensationalistic reality TV show. Well it's FUCKING REAL. Your country is going against the UNITED FUCKING NATIONS and attacking a country that is completely defenseless when compared to your 'awesome god like powers'.

Any country that starts a war 'in the name of God', is fucking dangerous, and ignorant.

People shouldn't have to die to boost the US economy, and CNN ratings.
It's called PROPAGANDA. You can't believe a damned thing they put on CNN, it's all fucking lies and food for people who like to be brainwashed.


As far as Canada's involvement in some stupid war (WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US AT ALL!), you guys fucked us on soft-wood lumber and numerous other economical things, as well as poisoned us with your lame ass culture.

No offense to the people in the country, for I am sure many of you are wonderful people.... The United States of America can go fuck itself for poisoning our planet, poisoning our cultures, bullying comparably defenseless countries, being global hypocrites, FORCING their beliefs on others, and just being fuck ups in general. Fuck the US government, and fuck their beurocracy.

Sorry to any people with brains who are stuck living there with a bunch of media-crazed shaved monkeys.

Peace..... Because war is fucking dumb.

There's no need to apologize for not getting into a war that's none of your business to begin with.

It's the Canadians who think they're American's apologizing for this. They have become so engrained in the US's culture that they think they are American. These are usually the people who live in Ontario, south of Ottawa, who sit at home, and watch a LOT of TV.

Just my opinion, I could be wrong. pfft, yeah right.

I respectfully disagree.

Not only do the Americans not need our help, I strongly disagree with what they are doing. I don't think there is any need for us to blindly follow the Americans. This is not a "time of need", we are not depriving them of anything.

The US is a friend and a neighbour, but they are not our boss. We don't need to get involved in their silly wars, and I think it's our duty to oppose them when they start doing ridiculous shit.

Our friend and neighbour is pushing for us to get tougher on drugs. I think our government should stand up and do the right thing, telling them that what they are doing is morally reprehensible, and they need to change. That's what a real friend would do.

Sure Iraqis are dancing in the streets now, but many have vowed to turn on the Americans once Saddam is out of power.

"They have become so engrained in the US's culture that they think they are American. These are usually the people who live in Ontario, south of Ottawa, who sit at home, and watch a LOT of TV."

The strongest support for the US and the war is in Alberta. The people in Ontario south of Ottawa aren't much different than the rest of the country. Like any other Canadians, they're pretty adamant about being separate from the US.

Killjoy, so do you feel you can just wave your magic pacifistic wand and make the world all better? People who are against the war call supporters of the war ignorant. At least supporters can accept the fact that war is part of mankind. Flapping your jaws and protesting is causing a worldwide nuisance, nothing more. Man has been at war since the beginning. It's a fact of life. War happens, and will continue to happen. Complain about it all you want, but it won't change human nature. And if you think war isn't in our nature.....well you are definitely entitled to your opinion.

Yes.

Sometimes war is necessary in this world, how should we handle states like North Korea for example?

The country states that kill 100's of thousands of their own civilians, threaten their neighbours, and focus on ruling with an iron fist; should not be allowed to continue.

Are we to use sanctions on those countries? Sanctions cause more suffering, and in N. Korea's case there have already been a reported high death rate of starvation, etc..

War sucks, no doubt about that.. But do we sit idly by while other countries are suffering immensly under a dictator?

I would think this world would have learned the lessons from WWI and WWII.. But it seems our skin is so thin these days that we think appeasement and containment are GOOD ideas.

Where is Winston Churchill when you need him? Maybe Tony Blair is his proper successor :wink:

It's good to hear somebody say something in support of our country rather than the constant bashings.

The last poll done on seperation from the east done here in Alberta showed about a 12% support for the idea.

Alberta does not want to seperate, we in the west however want real representation in parliment like making our senate like the US senate would be a good start.

The liberals however like to keep it the way it is now since they just need to keep a majority in the east and they don't have to worry about western discontent.

We get shafted out in the west and we have every right to be upset at how this country is represented by our government. All we ask is that the Canadian Senate be exactly like the US senate so that all provinces have a powerfull say in Ottawa.
