aND YOU NEVER WILL EITHER BUDDY..Its a greta life in Canada and the U.S. Try dissing your govt like we do here, in other places like Syria, and see what happens. I will say it again. we canadians and Americans live like Kings and Queens. What I find funny is the BS some folks here spout off with out really knowing WTF they are talking about. ironMike im sure you'll agree with me. Go out of your home town and see whats going on around you. Ive been around the world, and I can tell youThere is no life like what we have here. Dont rely too much on the press for your take on the world. You will have to go and see for your self how they live in Europe. France, as an example, if you are in any one of the airports in the country and you leave a bag unattended for more than a few moments it will be taken away and destroyed by bomb techs, "just in case". You have paramilitry guards patroling with sub machine guns and attack dogs. EVERYONE has to carry a national ID card at all times failiure of which will land you in prison. Just a few little tidbits of info. and thats from a G-7 nation. a supposedly civilized country. Now take a walk through Edmontons International airport. A few rent a cops, maybe a Commisionaire, but no tactical police. Some of you who only spout about what they have read need to tone things down a bit on what you think you know and figure out that what you think you know and what you really know are 2 different beasts. im 47 and have been out of the military before a lot of our members here were even born. IronMike is still serving his country. At least take time to read his post and understand it before you poopoo it or what he has to say. You have an opportunity here to learn many things you may not get taught in school and be the better for it. Ok my 10 minutes are up LOL

Have not been detained here in the " homeland " . Democracy is still holding as near as I can tell . That of course is subjective in light of incidents of blatant media bias , extreme corporate malfeasance that goes unpunished , and patriot act II . And just to be on the safe side , I don't say the things I post on this site in public .

This happens in Canada and the US also. It is standard procedure. I know, I work for a subcontractor at YVR. We are regularily updated with security measures as well as safety measures. Any bag unattended in any airport in North America will be blown up. You may think that in the Edmonton Airport they have few security people milling about. Look up at the cameras. Your every move IS being watched. Not all security are dressed in uniform.

Under cover of war, Mugabe unleashes a new reign of terror

Here's another reason why the world shouldn't forget about Africa.

Well the war in Iraq dies down and the US increases the rhetoric aimed at Syria, attacks continue in Afghanistan as fundimentalist try to prevent that country from escaping the Dark Ages.

Mugabe isn't the only dictator who has taken advantage of the worlds focus on Iraq. Much closer to home Castro continues his brutal reign in Cuba supported by many Canadians.

Looks like the Lebanese are tired of living under the Syrian Occupation. They're asking to be liberated. Of course the Syrians and Palestinians oppose this. After all it was the Palestinians who ruined Lebanon in the first place.

Good rant back there RH. Sometimes its hard to appreciate peanut butter when you've dined on lobster for awhile, and I agree with you. But now we have the latest f*ck-up by the liberals, SARS. I for one won't sit on my ass while these incompetents are in charge of my health, and my families'. I will bitch, complain, donate money, do whatever it takes to get the garbage off parliament hill.
You're right in saying we are lucky in Canada & the U.S. to be able to protest freely, but I won't thank a guy for NOT stealing my car. This country could be doing a lot better, so we have to keep the fire on their asses. I used to think it was a sign of democracy when a politician I didn't agree with was elected (Lucien Bouchard, anyone?), but these assholes who are running the show now are more popular than ever. And Canadians don't seem to care unless its the Americans who are perceived as the reason for the problem. Canada is on borrowed time in the war against terrorism, mark my words, and the liberals are surely to blame. I hate their stinking guts! Weapons of mass deception litter our land, so I hope we get rid of the regime before someone else (!) does. Hmmm, wonder if Rumsfeld needs some of Chretien's DNA-he leaves a trail of slime wherever he goes, so it should be easy...

The World should put all it's resources toward crushing tyrants and terrorists. Benny Elon has the right solution to deafet the Palestinian terrorists, here's hoping the Israeli's can get the Americans to ditch the Road Map.

Seems like we should devote our time and efforts to finding WMDs and restoring order to Afghani - oops ! I mean Iraq , before moving on to anything else .

I agree 100% with you buddy..The politicos on BOTH sodes of the border need to realise that we are not mindless sheep who will follow wher ever they want to lead us. You are right that we have become complacent, and there is a great need for change in the leadership, possibly in both countries..

I dunno RH...I agree with most of it, but we do have the government we deserve. A lot of people who lean to the left vote Liberal because they may like the ideas of the left, but are afraid of taking a chance. Ditto people on the right, especially with the PCs being ineffective and the Alliance being kinda scary. The Liberals steal the moderate planks out of both rightist and leftist platforms and pick up the wish-washy vote. As a result we get a wishy-washy government.

Something I've been noticing about Jean since he decided to retire is that he's suddenly become a leader. His recent comments about George Bush an US policy were not only appropriate in the context in which they were given, but presented his views instead of the views of the latest polls. The liberalisation of our pot laws is another example, even if it doesn't go far enough and has been watered down...he's willing to present his beliefs. Same with Iraq...he said we weren't going without the UN sanctioning the war and we never went.

I see it as an argument for term limits. Whether you like the decisions or not, you have to admit that this kind of candor and leadership has been sadly lacking since Trudeau first walked away...even when he came back it wasn't with the same fire.

Ever since then we've had PMs who either lived and died (died, really) by poll results or jammed their tongues up the nearest American ass and hired PR firms to make rim-jobs fashionable.

Chretien was no different for most of his reign, but now he's going out without having to fight another election. It shows. He isn't running from certain doom the way Mulroney did, he's walking away. If no Prime Minister could sit more than ten years we might see this kind of action from all of them.

As for anti-American sentiment....That kind of thing works best as a political tool when it's worked at. We've spent most of the last twenty years in Canada working against anti-American sentiment in order to sell trade deals. The fact that it is still such a powerful tool has a lot to do with what America does and how it presents itself to the world.
