Thanks for the consideration. It is interesting to see how things are unfolding in the election and other world events from the point of view of a Canadian soldier. As a soldier my job is to go where I am asked to go and do what I am asked to do. Generally, Canadian's have done themselves proud on the battlefield, like 3 PPCLI in Afghanistan, but it is troubling to see that this is just being used as justification for NOT increasing defence spending.

I respect the differences between our two great countries but I sometimes think Canada's politicians don't have too firm a grip on political realities compared to either major US party.

But then, I have always found when talking to soldiers who were or would be the enemy in time of war that soldiers have more in common with each other than they do with their political masters!
