  4. Words fail me, with the loss of three Canadians today. Our media can now stop waiting to report the 100th death, it happened along with the 98th, and 99th. There will be no more death watch now, wondering who it will be or when.

    Goodbye my friends, my brothers, my countrymen. I will remember you. To the families, we are standing with you.

    And to our politicians who play at running a country instead of leading it. What do your egos say now? While you threaten to tear my country apart, and claim to wage war in our House of Commons, our men and women are dying to uphold what we believe are righteous acts. Your actions only lead to giving yourselves a vacation. How can you look at yourselves in a mirror knowing you were too busy trying to stroke your own egos instead of paying attention to the needs of the violent theatre of operation you sent us to defend.

  5. Our three soldiers will be be repatriated tomorrow. http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20081207/highway_heroes_081207/20081207?hub=Canada

  6. Yet another Canuck soldier killed in Kandahar, now making it 7 Canadians killed thus far in December.

  7. Maybe not the time and place to say it but it's a pleasure to have the Canadians batting on the same team.
