damn. Started up again. This should go and show everybody you shouldn't make jokes about other peoples country for no reason. You can't possibly think that someone would take those lines on the first thread lightly. Anyone that has true heart about their country would get offended on the comments made on the first post. The person that made the thread should be ashamed 1 for telling all those lies and 2 for putting down someones country for no reason.
By any means necessary

Just a bit of History

I have been reading this thread since the start and have seen some call us canadians cowards and such. I am glad that we all have the freedom of speach on this side of the world.I would point out that in the past When we were needed to fight for this freedom we were there no if's and's or but's I had a lot of family fight in the second world war and most of them never came home.ww1 ww2 and korea we were there when it was nessary and we gave our blood and our sons and our fathers for freedom.We have all sacrificed at the alter of freedom Canadian American English French and on and on It is sad to see all of us forget what has past and what was given to give us all what we have.

here is a tid bit of info on some of what Canadian troops did as part of an Allied force in the second world war.

After the blitzkrieg on Europe in May 1940, German forces occupied the Netherlands for the duration of the Second World War. The occupation of their country by the Nazi forces caused the royal family to flee the country. Queen Juliana and her two young daughters, Princess Beatrix and Princess Irene fled first to the United Kingdom and then to Canada, where they found refuge during the war. Princess Margriet, the royal couple's youngest daughter, was born at the Ottawa Civic Hospital.

Yet, Canada's relationship to the Netherlands, and for that matter, occupied Europe, goes far beyond the country being a safe haven for displaced royalty. After the D-Day offensive, the war turned for the Allies. As German forces, still fighting extensively, pulled back, Europe was released from the Nazi stronghold.

The First Canadian Army, under Guy Simonds, cleared the way for supply lines to reach Normandy by contributing to the Allied effort to open the Belgian port of Antwerp. The Battle of the Scheldt started at the beginning of October 1944 and carried on through to the end of November. Despite heavy casualties, the Canadians pushed on through fierce opposition, and by November 8, German resistance had ceased. Convoys arrived at the channel starting on November 28

"Why does any advanced civilization seek to destroy a less advanced one? Because the land is strategically valuable, because there are resources that can be cultivated and exploited, but most of all, simply because they can."
