Response to Of course you'd miss the point...
.....You were being your usual HR, taking a shot at Canada, out of context, the usual complete disregard for the topic at hand...doesn't matter to you...
Anyone: "The sky is blue"
HR: "Blame Canada"
Anyone: "Too bad the Exxon Valdez spilled all the oil in the water"
HR: "Blame Canada"
.....It has nothing to do with me being wrong, it's about you taking whatever opportunity to blame Canada for wrongs we did not commit.
.....As for your question, you obviously missed it the first time, but in WWI and WWII, Canada, as part of our commitment to the Commonwealth, what affected Britain affected us...I hope that's not too complicated, and I made sure I typed real slow, hopefully that helps too. The other point you obviously missed, in both World Wars, Canada was reponding the aggressions of one country against our allies. In the case of America vs Iraq, it's the US who is the invading and aggressors in the attack. Iraq did not attack the US, Iraq is not attacking anyone else...when it did in the Gulf War, Canada was the first to join in with the US to push Saddam Hussein back to Baghdad... that was a just cause, because Hussein at that time was the aggressor. But at that time, the US failed to pursue his removal, he was a known quantity in the region, his replacement might be even more radical... "let's keep the known quantity in power", that was the thought process in 91, but 12 years later, it's President Bush who is the aggressor, it is he who has started the War Against Iraq. It's like a movie ad on TV...
"Come out and see Gulf War II, starring Saddam Hussein as himself, and special guest star, President George W. Bush playing Adolf Hitler, attempting to colonize the Middle East. Don't miss it, get your popcorn, bring the kids!"
.....By the way, don't ask me not to be "juvenile" when you close your sentence with "Canada the backstabbing cowards", you've once again revealed your blatant double-standard expectations and perspective...D'
