Thank you for the sacrifices your country has made. I think that I’m most pissed about McChrystal’s twats putting down a French ally. Drop those spoiled uniformed brats. We are asking other countries for their support in blood and treasure.
No time to be glib.

Comments like that, and the general attitude of “America’s Army, #1 without equal” really, really makes it difficult to argue for continued Canadian support for the war in Afghanistan. Although I gotta say, you really see a lot less of that attitude now.

For the military watchers in Canada, a large shift was the purchase of C-17s and CH-47s. It was two major procurements in less than a decade, and we purchased airframes that had originally been going to the USAF and US Army. That really gave the impression that you guys wanted us an effective and independent force.
