Casualties Of War - When Canadian Troops Accidentily Kill Children
Globe & Mail
War sucks. Big time. War is illogical, violent, primitive and allows little children in a car with their father to be shot through the head by men who have good intentions of fighting 'evil'.
Blogging Tory types will shrug and suggest it was the fault of the father for not adhering to signals to stop his car in the vicinity of nervous and gun shy Canadian troops.
Simple rural people, in a remote and unsophisticated country, living almost as if it is still the middle ages, who don't understand the English being shouted at them. Boom! Two little children, dead.
For what? .... oh well .... at least we remain rigid in our policy to NEVER speak to the Taliban .... we do NOT negotiate with 'terrorists'!
.... the Canadian military will give the family some money - and we can all get back to living our nice little Canadian lives.
