I agree, standing with your allies when it is time to be counted is never a mistake. Vietnam has suffered through decades of economic hardship and tyranny since the American withdrawal. I personally would be happier if Canada consistently stood for freedom, and against tyranny.

the government of Canada at the time of 2003 liberation of Iraq was no ally of the US, was it?

Canada played a good role durinz 1950s Suez crisis

Vietnam? 30,000 Canadian-Americans served in Vietnam though

I dont think you always have to stand by your allies in offensive operations.

Well, here are a few simple questions then. Is the world a better place without Saddam? Do people suffer under communism? Is it right to sit idly by while others suffer? Is there anything at all worth fighting for?

Why were the Athenians who had experinced war less thrilled about the war with Sparta than the young men?
Why did Canadians celebrate at the start of the great war but not ww2?
Why did Canada take steps in ww2 to limit the numbers of casulities we would take?
Why did America lose in Vietnam?
What is the role of the media and greater access of information in undermining national unity?

We didn't say no to Iraq, so much as "Sorry, we're tied up with Afghanistan still. Best of luck." And we have provided support for the Iraq mission in a number of ways including assisting naval operations in the Arabian Sea, training Iraqi police officers (in Jordan, I think), and sending in special ops on the sly.

That is what people don't realize, in Iraq, and Afghanistan, the US is fighting for the world. And there are precious few people willing to help them. It seems a majority of people do not agree with Hemingway.

I was watching a movie the other day, "The Gospel of John". Near the end of the movie, Jesus says to his disciples, "There will come a time when people will kill you and say they are acting in my name". It occurred to me, that sounds a lot like today.

PS.

I did not tell you this at first because I was with you.
