Do you want war on Canadian soil?

No, I don't want war, period.

I think it's good & necessary to periodically remind ourselves how many soldiers have given up their lives & their livelihood to fight the wars currently taking place around the world.

I found the numbers shocking, & much higher than I thought. And I didn't even post the losses from other countries around the world.

Hopefully, the Freedom Operations will achieve their objectives sooner rather than later, & the fighting forces will be able to come home to safety.
