Watching CTV news story on how Canadian troops are combatting the Taliban and terrorists in Afghanistan, I wondered if the Canadian society appreciates what Canadian armed forces are doing in that corner of the world.
CTV reporter goes deep into battle
I am very much worried the terrorists break the already-fractured nerves of the Canadian Liberal society and it is just unfair to see that leftist media and politicians turn Canadian people against the mission in Afghanistan. You know, I am sensing some thing bad out of these new media reports on Canada's mission in war on terrorism. I know that the government of PM Harper, fortunately, extended the mission in Afghanistan for a certain time frame but you never know what Liberals and anti-war idiots are up to.
It's been already said that Westerners take their freedoms for granted but it is important to know that there are men and women fighting abroad for our very freedoms at home. I didn't have these freedoms back at home so they are more valuable to me now and I understand why Canadian troops are there to help rebuild that war-torn country, but again it makes me upset to see that brave Canadians fighting the good fight against those people I hate, yet their bravery and sacrifice is not seen or appreciated as one expects.
We need to appreciate them as much as possible. This appreciation can come in any format, be it a simple email/letter to the troops or by understanding the type of war they fight and spread the word among the people.
