Hi guys sorry im late again
I feel that the people of most countries are interested in providing comfort
and security for their loved ones.
I am a Proud Canadian, and I am not inclined to get Canada involved in
the internal affairs of other nations. I am not a warmonger.
The economic diplomatic influences of canada exist as stated.
however, one should rely on ones self where possible.
doubling the canadian forces at their current level
would provide us with a force of approximately 126000 men
all branches. have you seen how many men belgium can muster.
their is a need for a realistic force capability but canadian civilian
population doesnt seem to understand the military as a tool.
and there seems to be some sort of underlying assumption
that if we ever need to go back to full scale war, that we
would have a year or three to gear up.
"I'll be back when the war is over an hour and a half from now"
(folk singer Roger James.)
I have already said that medling in the internal affairs of other nations
isnt on my list. But nations internal policies can often have an international
influence that may need to be dealt with. Ie Iraq or the afghan.
but seriously If Canada ever tried an oil boycott on the US for any reason
what do you guys suppose would happen.
the same thing as the japanese did when their oil was cut off by the states.??????
does any body believe they will continue peacfully with their neighbors if they
run out of fresh water??????

represent any type of anti american sentiment.)
