Looks like we’re getting some troops deployed to Iraq.


I’m looking into adding another two members to this blog.

We need people who aren’t as busy as the rest of us and with extensive knowledge of the Canadian Military and its history.
Just send me an email at ottawas_taco_stand@yahoo.com with a quick blurb to introduce yourself including your name, age, location, URL and explaining why you’re interested.

Thanks!

-André


Hey, guys. I know I said I wasn’t going to abandon this blog but I just have too much going on(school, work, etc) and I don’t have time to post, or even use my computer at all. I literally have no free time at all. I’m sorry. Maybe Andre will look into adding another member to the blog. *hint hint*

75 years ago, millions of Canadians went to bed thinking they still lived in a peaceful world.

Come morning, their lives would be profoundly shaken and Canada would find itself in the midst of a painful dilemma - should we go to war again and risk so much heartbreak and destruction when we had already lost so much? Should we side with the British empire and dive head first into a new conflict for king and country? Or should we keep to ourselves, stay out of the war and continue tending to the wounds left by the first war?

In the end, we chose neither.

We chose to side with humanity, and declared war on Nazi Germany on September 10, 1939.

It was the only time we ever declared war.

Forty thousand of our countrymen would lie dead within six years.

I’ve noticed all of these down the years, but it’s only just clicked how much a problem they are. They can be applied to most other historical periods as well.

Modern Man’s Superiority Complex:

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but it’s also a double-edged sword. Looking back on…






Several radicalized Canadian citizens are believed to be fighting for the islamic state.

Suspect anyone you know is radicalized and thinking about joining religious extremists overseas? Contact the RCMP before they have the chance to do that.
Remember - two of the most bloodthirsty terrorists involved in the In Amenas hostage crisis in Algeria were from London, Ontario.
If you stop even one of these homegrown terrorists from fighting for IS, you would have saved the lives of several civilians they would have otherwise murdered.
Keep an eye on social media and keep your eyes and ears open in case you see or hear anything suspicious that may be linked with the spread of religious extremism.

Don’t attempt to directly confront anyone you believe may be an extremist as A) they could be dangerous or B) you might be wrong. Contact the authorities and let them handle it if you become suspicious of anybody. Don’t play hero. Play smart.
