Further to this post and “Comments”,
the conclusion of a Globe and Mail editorial:
“Canada is back,” the government boasted on Friday. But peacekeeping isn’t. We are about to embark on an undertaking that may routinely put Canadian soldiers’ lives at risk in the most dangerous places in the world, and where Canada’s national interests may not even be at stake.
Are Canadians ready for that? And did they ever want it?
Exactly. But far too many Canadians ignorantly long for a mythical tradition. Including the Crvena Zvezda. Here’s the pap headline of their editorial:
Canada finally dusts off its blue helmet: Editorial
Canada is ready to assume its rightful role as a nation dedicated to UN peacekeeping following a welcome new commitment of troops and money.
Dust off your history instead:
Including Canadian nukes.
