WIMPS ** made in Canada, died in Afghanistan.

So, has Pearly Gates singled out our fine troops as being unfit for battle against the mighty Taliban? It’s all rather insulting given that the first coalition casualties of that particular war were inflicted by (friendly?) American fire. Hopped-up homocidal U.S. forces pilot Harry Schmidt disobeyed orders and decided unilaterally to bomb an area where some newly-arrived Canucks were staging a military exercise. Schmidt and his crew managed to kill four of our guys and wound another eight in April of 2002. Welcome to the U.S. of Afghanistan. I was one of the many hundred who attended the funeral of 29 year-old Marc Léger of Lancaster, Ontario (1 of the 4) and it was the grimmest of scenes with his broken-hearted parents stumbling in tears behind their boy now in a box, draped in that now too familiar canadian flag, looking like so many maple-leaf cookies. Jean Chrétien was incredibly pissed off because Bush didn’t apologize let alone acknowledge that the incident had taken place.* He eventually mumbled something in his Beavis & Butthead style to placate this Nato nation. It’s easy to call people unfit when they don’t know who the enemy is. How come those guys in tunics and eyeliner are so tough? I mean Blush, Bear, Chains, Rumpsvelt, Woolf and pack.

*Coincidentally it was shortly after this (May 2002) that the opposition asked the RCMP to start investigations into the Sponsorship Affair.

**Weary Incompetent Military Personnel Swept-out (thank you Lily).. naan is suffering from restoril hangover and can’t shoot straight just like the troops.

    Fighting in an army must be a lot like playing in a band. Before the musician can join in on a piece of music he has to know where the ONE is to establish the time signature. This war doesn’t seem to have a ONE. The commander-in-chief of this mess doesn’t dance. He runs..

    what Bush said to placate the angry Canadians was ‘eat shit’. that’s what we always tell our irate clients. it leaves them gap-jawed and speechless.

    shouldn’t it be Weary Incompetent Military Personnel Sweeped-out or Swept out?
    kind of like when troops do a sweep of the area for IEDs or ineffectual nato forces working in the south…

    fruit conspiracy, first segment.

    in late 2001 i overheard the seed of a washington mandarin say ‘for all we know g. bush sr. is just another drug warlord.’

    I think northern spy means the kind of fruit that grows on trees. no slur intended here from this hardy little apple.
