Response to Oops, forgot to post the story
I never noticed it before, but there is a tendency in Canada to trumpet the heroism displayed by your forces in WWII, at the same time as they're poo-pooing the idea that there's any war being fought now. It's a lot like the isolationism the US was engaged, prior to our involvement(post-Pearl Harbor) in WWII. The idea that it's "their war, not ours," is a tough one to shake.
The truth is, as free societies who don't want to be part of the global caliphate, Canada and the US, along with the rest of the "civilized world,", is in a world war with Islamist extremism. There's no getting away from that fact.
I heard a young Brit say on the "telly" the other day, that before the London bombing he felt like Great Britain wasn't at war, but now he realizes, they are. Well...DUH!
