    Not the kind of stuff you'd normally see on CBC, that's for sure.

    It reminds one that they're actually an army, and not just some kinda local disaster relief or peacekeeping force. It is good to actually witness the boys doin' the biz now and then, I know what you're saying. I hope they can get some real momentum going over there and end this crap (that goes for all the coalition boys over there), but realistically there's only so much the CF is capable of on it's own. Without the Brits in the region covering a large area, our guys would be hard pressed indeed all on their lonesome.

    That's awfully kind, but have you checked out the Royal Marine videos? They're fighting Taliban tooth and nail too. Not to mention the US forces over there of course. Several more nations have troops in Afghanistan as well.

    Especially good to see the Canadians at it. They've been getting short shift from a lot of people but they have a long history of being very good fighters. Been tagged pacifist or lightweights so long that people were starting to listen to it. Seemed to be thought of as a bunch of extras from "The Red Green" show.

    No dis to Brits either. Great job.

    top sniper in ww2 of the not including those on eastern front was a Canadian MacArthur

    The Brits are probably the best fox hunters if that is any consolation:lol:

    It's because we haven't committed forces to Iraq. It's an old story by now. How quickly everyone seemed to forget about Afghanistan.


    ...And don't ya be dissin' the Red Green Show, it's a favourite of mine. ;)
