RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! http://www.cbc.ca/story/canada/national/2005/05/03/war-musuem050503.html What a pile of complete bunk!! The paintings do not deal with how Canadian soldiers deal with the psychological toll of modern warfare! A little background:The Canadian Airborne Regiment was sent to Somalia to conduct peacekeeping operations, in 1992. Now these guys had been prepping to go in as an assault force while things were still on the hotter side over there. They're an airborne regiment! That's what they do! They're trained to kill and destroy! While enroute, the situation suddenly changes and Canada's role in the whole mess becomes one of peacekeeping. The Chief of the Defence Staff requests a recall of the Airborne Regiment and the deployment of recently trained peacekeepers in their place. Does Ottawa listen? To save a few bucks in redeployment costs, they decide to leave them there. Well low and behold, they actually killed someone, who'd been trying to sneak onto their compound! They're paras for Christ's sake! They're friggin' psycho to begin with! Yes, they're going to be nasty, not use kid-gloves on a preceived threat! A big political mess ensues, some junior guys go to prison, some senior guys are "retired", and...the government disbands the Airborne Regiment! The paratroops still exist. Each of the regular infantry regiments now has it's own jump company. It was nothing more than a convenient excuse for that bloody Chrétien (our Prime Minister at the time of the inquiry) to save more money on an already dilapidated military! So now to add insult to injury, they're gonna hang these things in the new war museum as an example of "how Canadian soldiers deal with the psychological toll of modern warfare"?! Jesus Christ!! How utterly pussified can we get?! And you know what? The public will eat it right up, there's not a doubt in my mind! I'm willing to bet you that these "veterans" they refer to as having approved the concept were nothing more than clerks!
