He has a point. Two years ago NATO fought the biggest land battle of it's history to that point, in Helmand Province, lead by the Canadian Army. Over 500 Taliban and AQ pukes were killed by the Canadians. Not one word of this battle was in the US press. Not one word from any US official thanking the Canadians for their bravery and success in battle. How many Americans are aware the French Navy has spelled our own carriers in the Indian Ocean by providing their one carrier, the Charles de Gaull, to provide air support to NATO troops in Afghanistan? How many Americans are aware that Sweden, yes neutral Sweden, has had an infantry battalion fighting in Afghanistan since the beginning? Sweden has bought C-17's to support this battalion, and other ops ( the Swedes are more involved with NATO than most realize ). Or, how many Americans know both Danish and Norweigan Air Force F-16's support our troops in Afghanistan?
This is a real war we are in, and we need to win this unequivocally. We were attacked and are quite justified in seeking to destroy our enemies the Taliban and AQ there.

Must be a frustrated Homosexual to carry on the way he does. Liberals will stop at nothing to hide all their faults.
