Canada and the Canadian Forces – A little less then fairy tale

Canada is a country built upon military history. Despite the insistence of many Canadians to gloss over this fact, and the continual description of Canada as a ‘peacekeeper’, Canada was conceived, born, and raised in war.

As a people we revel in pointing out the United States’ History of war, claiming ‘they’ve been at war as long as they’ve existed.’ Meanwhile Canada would not exist if it were not for war.

In a brief historical flashback, Canada was at war before it even became a nation. French and English troops spilled blood far from their European homeland, fighting over a cold patch of soil and small settlements. After the Plains of Abraham Canada became predominantly English, setting the stage for the creation of Quebec. Just 70 years later the colony that would become Canada was under attack by American forces in the year of 1812. It was in this war that loyalists to the crown proved their worth as militia, fighting alongside redcoats, and joined by native warriors, who over the years have continued to make sacrifices for the Canadian Military.

Another very little known fact is that an estimated 30 to 50000 Canadians fought in the civil war for the North – the faction that intended to follow the British abolition of slavery. A perfect example is Edward Doherty, an officer in the Union Army. He was the leader of the team that hunted down and killed John Wilkes Booth. To repeat this: Abraham Lincolns murderer was killed by a team headed by a Canadian. Over 29 Canadians received the Medal of Honor for their service in the war.

There are many other examples of heroism in the Canadian military, from Vimy Ridge, a turning point in the countries history, to Dieppe, a failure that ultimately paved the way for great successes in Normandy and Holland. This is not even touching the UNPROFOR missions, Korea or Afghanistan.

Somehow however Canada is pervaded with lingering suspicions of their military, a laid back attitude concerning public safety and an utter lack of desire to pour any substantial funding into the Forces. The formula is simple: decimate military funding, leaving a skeleton force barely fit to defend a single province. Then enter a conflict promising the world, dropping an unrealistic mission on an inexperienced and under-equipped military. Afghanistan is a perfect example of this – Canada entered into the most dangerous part of the country with little recent combat experience and a laughable array of equipment, including fragile soft skin vehicles with metal plates welded on the side, and green combats in a desert environment. The Canadian soldiers on these early tours fought hard and died, in part because of the tenacity of the enemy, in part because the CF had been betrayed by years of budget cuts and training reduction. By the time relevant equipment and training was fully implemented, the mission was nearing its end.

After the withdrawal of the combat force, Canada has immediately shown a disposition to return to its previous attitude, cutting the already minuscule budget by 7 percent and severely lashing out at any perceived military mismanagement.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/08/13/nl-mackay-defends-fishing-813.html

The above is a story concerning SAR pilots who were taking a break from flying their helicopter to fish. As an excellent leader Mackay defended the pilots. As he pointed out, the pilots are required to fly a certain amount of hours each month, in the daytime and the night. So what if they chose to land on a small island and fish? It doesn’t cost the taxpayers any extra as these men are all on salary.

The most appalling part is the comments underneath the story, full of people convinced that the SAR pilots are roustabouts wasting the taxpayers dollars, lambasting Mackay and bemoaning ‘the direction this country is heading.’ In some countries military misdemeanors include coups, genocide or corruption. Canada has fishing trips. These bleeding heart left wingers are quick to degenerate into a hate fest for the military. Oh we support the military they say, we just want to cut their budget to next to nothing, and leave them able to only operate in Canada to shovel snow in Toronto and fight forest fires in BC.

Of course the truth is much more brutal. Last year, a SAR tech was killed in an operation that successfully rescued a man and his child out in frigid waters in Nunavut. To quote a popular news agency:

“He was found five hours later, unresponsive and floating in the sea with his life-jacket inflated, the report found. The tether that was supposed to have held his one-man life-raft to his life-preserver “had separated at the threads and this life-raft was missing.” The dry suit he was wearing was not optimized for use on the Hercules, the report said.”

In other words, it seems likely that this true hero, who dove into frigid wars to save a Canadian citizen was killed because his equipment was inadequate. As an experienced operator, he would have recognized the dangers involved, and it seems unlikely that personal error resulted in his death.

The Canadian people need to wake up and stop backstabbing their own military, the one that they demand so much from. More funding needs to be allocated to replace dangerous aging equipment, particularly for the neglected air force. Support for the CF should be canvassed across the nation, and children should not be taught that Canadian soldiers are ‘mercenaries for big oil’ or ‘psychopaths’ as Paul Graham wrote, but dedicated professionals who have continually put their life on the line for the country.

Of course this does not touch upon the failure of DND to be transparent, and no organization is without irresponsible personnel. That however, is an entirely different post.

Disassociation of Reality

At one point in their life, most people will deal with a disconnection from reality. I personally can attest to this. My disassociation was not caused by hallucinations or blindness, nor by mind altering chemicals. It was simply a byproduct of the unfortunately useless human trait called ‘wishful thinking.’

This trait has many names and variations, such as naivete, pipe dreams and so on. Regardless of what it is named, it is essentially this: the failure of a person to see events or situations as they actually are, and the tendency to instead impose their belief of ‘the way things should be.’

In the past, people who have stripped away this foolish type of thinking have been considered cold, inhuman. And to a certain degree it is. However, while idealism may be the prime factor in motivating change, it will not see an actionable ending without a realistic, measured approach.

Standard idealistic thinking has shaped many facets of our society, and can be viewed in several examples.

Firstly, consider the average office worker. This man (or woman) is employed in the stereotypical urban maze that has grown into the everyday life of many westerners. He spends eight hours of his day inside of a six foot square cubicle, recieving warmth only from the flourescent lights of the building. He is in the ‘dead end job,’ recieving a mediocre paycheck to compensate him for his puerile work. His co-workers are much the same as him, and as such either feel sympathy for sharing the suffering, or resentment for the mirror he holds up to their lifestyle. Nonetheless. this man has an uncompromisingly happy outlook on life, which many will cheerfully describe to be a ‘good attitude.’ His eulogy will speak volumes of his kind nature and unbreakable spirit. But it will not tell the truth about his failed dreams, the impossible goals he always maintained in his heart, but simply never managed to achieve. He was a wishful thinker, carrying himself through life on the hopes that he will never see recognized.

Next, listen to the protester, the left wing, pro-choice, wool cap wearing university student who lives on campus, eats catered meals and moved straight there from their parents basement. Despite having almost no life experience, he has a solid opinion on a wide variety of topics. The wars are unacceptable, he trumpets, waving a cardboard banner in front of his city hall. Make love not war, when the rich make war, its the poor that die; he is a man of cliches and institutionalized eduction that preaches idealism in the sterilized confines of school. He is shocked to hear of civilian casualties, and cannot seem to grasp why these soldiers, with all their heavy weaponry, always seem to kill some innocent people. And isn’t it just too unlikely that an entire culture has evolved around the intent to destroy ours? Once again, he does not see the world for what it is. He sees it for what the institutions have told him it should be, and that rose coloured world is a beautiful, safe place.

A certain philosopher was adept at wading through the preconceptions of human behaviour, and candidly addressed one of the fascinating areas that many people have shied away from. This was the conversation regarding the manipulation and control of the masses – the application of power in political means. His work ‘The Prince’ has achieved a degree of recognition, but not necessarily in favourable terms. Criticism of his work is easily found, despite the fact that he wrote: Yet as I have said before, not to diverge from the good if he can avoid it, but to know how to set about it if compelled.’ While showing a certain moral flexibility, Machievelli demonstrated a remarkably clear view of the world.

Books like ‘The Prince’ show us something that most will vehemently deny, or at least refuse to contemplate in their hearts.  While a person can be good, people in groups are prone to seemingly unreasonable acts of violence, selfishness and barbarism. The crowd can be stirred by the strong call of one man, and all too soon it is the wicked who are more likely to raise their voice then the just.

My challenge is that more people begin to view the word from an open perspective, untinged by their own personal desires and past experiences. See things for what they are, not what they should be or could be, and most definitely not what you wish they were. Only then will you begin to see clearly.

Duality of Man

Light. It nourishes all life on the planet earth. It has always been viewed as symbol of hope and life and was worshipped by ancient cultures in the form of the sun. Recently, science has delved deeper into the mysteries of the nature of light. Oddly, it has been shown to exhibit the characteristics of both a particle and a wave. This seeming contradiction baffled scientists and led to the formation of quantum physics, an entirely new way of thinking that allows for light to exist in two states at the same time.

Like Light, mankind has shown their ability to display apparently contradicting aspects at the same time.

War and peace, good and evil, these polar opposites have been exhibited nearly simultaneously as long as history has been recorded.

There are many who choose to believe that man is innately good. They hold that negative environmental factors shape the attitude and disposition of any given soul.

There are a multitude of others that see humans to be innately evil. They claim that regardless of upbringing and experience we are dark at heart, and only rise above our evil by consciously choosing to do so.

 

Both sides have taken to viewing the world from a linear perspective. Both are prone to holding war as a perfect example of evil, and view peace as the crowning achievement that is rarely realized in history. Every now and then, they claim, man climbs from the abyss of war up to the lofty peaks of peace and tranquility. They believe that man continues to evolve, and will someday reach a flowering of global consciousness, that will unite the world in a common search for harmony and pluralism.

 

To my eyes, this could be no further from the truth.

War and peace are not varying points on a yardstick of achievement. Instead, they should be viewed as contradicting peaks and troughs in a sine wave that could be used to represent human history.

In other words, the path of humanity, superimposed by the nature of mankind itself, is a fluid wave that oscillates from high (peace, democracy, good, etc) to low (war, tyranny, evil.)

This of course could be viewed as a defeatist attitude, but truthfully it is not. After all, the inevitability of an undesired outcome should not preclude a struggle against it.

 

Personally I would not even desire to exist within a world where the nature of man was strictly linear. From the soaring minarets of Islam to the glorious and graceful curves of Gothic architecture, from the innovation of flight to the advances in medicine earned during war, we have etched our story into the world. Our spirit most strongly shows itself during adversity, and our times of peace allow us to enjoy the rewards of struggle. So the cycle of war and rebirth continues. Dictatorships rise and fall, as do democracies; men make peace and their children take up arms.

If I could, what would I change about the world?

Absolutely nothing.

Why we hate Occupy Canada

In the United States, a group of concerned citizens have taken to the streets. What began on Wall Street became a nationwide movement that has mobilized thousands, attracting a diverse variety of citizens in numbers so great that law enforcement officers are now cautious to take action.
While there are problems inherent to the protests, few would criticize the OWS movement. Even Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney, a former Goldman and Sachs employee called the protests ‘constructive.’ There can be no doubt that the American populace genuinely have cause to feel betrayed. The movement is indicative of a flawed economic system, a stagnant political landscape and general frustration with the direction of the United States.

Trillions of dollars in debt, America continues to wage wars that the people do not support, with no end in sight to the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. The citizens question why they should care about the state of a middle eastern country when their homeland is experiencing financial crisis. Obama, once hailed as a saviour, has become indesicive and impotent in the face of the countries difficulties.

As Occupations spread across the States, they quickly began to spread to Canada, as any trend is sure to. Vancouver, Toronto, Victoria, Montreal, Halifax and London all soon sprouted their own protests. Vancouver grew quicker then any other, and also soon became the most contreversial. While attended by considerably less then their American counterparts, the protests quickly captured media attention and are now discussed with considerable fervour.

In many arguments, opposition to the movement is hailed as ‘mindless drooling vitriol, hate, ignorance, small mindedness, and right wing propoganda.’ The proponents of the protests are literally shocked and confused that any member of Canadian society could oppose their leftist agenda.

In response, this is a simple explanation of the reasons why many Canadians have reacted poorly to the Occupy Movement.

1. Your self identification. It raises the ire of many to see a small crowd of people standing on the street corner, waving signs that read ‘We are the 99%.’
Of course, many occupiers respond that the number is symbolic, but this does little to change the fact that the claim rankles many other members of society. It seems almost as if the protestors are speaking for others who choose to remain silent.
Furthermore, in Canada this number is impossible. 40 per cent of the active electorate chose to vote conservative. This would make the protestors something along the lines of the 65% at most, assuming that every person who declined to vote was in opposition to the Harper government but felt little inclination to show it.

2. Lack of a coherent message. It is remarkable to see the diversity within the movement. This applies not only to the members, but the content of their demands. Scrolling through one of their sites reveals a stunning variety of personal agendas. It appears as though the supporters of the movement have taken the oppurtunity provided by the legitimate OWS protestors and piggy-backed their own pet cause onto it.
Topics that are posted show that the Occupy Canada movement is adrift, sailing through the online seas without purpose. One supporter tweets against the illegal occupation of Palestine by Isreal. Another chimes in against the fighter jets purchase. Still more advocate raw milk, alternative energy, the Wheat Board, Climate Change, Homo-sexual rights and more.
Occupy Vancouver produced a list of demands, seen here.

http://www.cbc.ca/bc/news/bc-111104-occupy-vancouver-demands.pdf

There is everything from the legalization of Cocaine to the withdrawal of Canada from NATO. Of course, other members of the movement were quick to denounce this as unofficial, further highlighting the internal discord.

3. Lack of a solution. If the protestors, in a singular moment of genius, do manage to agree on any particular problem, they are stopped instantly at the next step: solutions.
It is all well and good to complain about the state of the economy, corrupt politicians and corporate greed. However, it is another thing entirely to provide a fix for these issues. Many supporters have openly admitted that they have no hard answers, and those that do present solutions completely infeasible for a variety of reasons.
The average Canadian recognizes that there are flaws within the system, but are willing to trust the government to fix them; in other words they see more hope for a solution from a minister of the caucus then a university student on the street with a sign.

4. Comparing yourselves to the States. As mentioned above, there is a legitimate complaint to be made by the Americans. However, these complaints do not translate well when applied to Canada. Occupiers have called for an end to bank bailouts (which has never happened in Canada) and demanded that banks be nationalized. Little do they know that the Bank of Canada already controls regulations for all banks. Police brutality is mentioned, while the law enforcement agencies in Canada have taken extremely (some would say too) lenient stance regarding the occupations. The economy in general is questioned, while Canada is recognized as being an example of how to deal with a recession, is still experiencing GDP growth (although slow) and is close to balancing the budget.

5. Harper Hate. Admittedly the curent Prime Minister was not selected by the majority of all Canadian citizens. However he still holds a majority government and was lawfully elected. Nevertheless, the left wing have proven themselves to be remarkably poor losers.
Brigette Depape and her ilk have become inextricably entangled with the movement, ensuring that the so called ninety nine percent put all of the blame on the Prime Ministers head. The anti-Harper faction once again speak for everyone, claiming that his agenda is anti-Canadian, that he is a criminal and that it is his goal to destroy the environment and social services, and turn Canada into a fascist military state. The sheer amount of evil they attribute to one man makes their cause laughable to begin with.

6. Communism. The protestors are quick to shy away from the C word, perhaps aware of the damage it could do to the public perception of wealth. Instead they embrace words like ‘progressive socialism,’ and ‘redistribution of the wealth.’ Regardless of the names they choose to use, the very core values of the movement are blatantly Marxist. As Micheal Moore suggested ‘why don’t every one of the richest 400 give us a million of their money?’
Setting aside that he is himself a millionaire (as well as an obese hypocrite) the concept of redistribution of wealth is essential to the Marxist theory. Furthermore, while claiming that they despise the government, the movement would require a massive expansion of government, in order to facilitate and enforce the distribution of funds.
In this video –

you see left wing congressman John Lewis attempt to address the crowd. He is turned away because the members, using a bizarre method of repitition and hand signals, are unable to reach a consensus. The entire video is almost surreal, and demonstrates without a doubt both the complete ineffectiveness of their system and the danger in ‘crowd-think.’
It is all very animal farm.

7. Occupy Vancouver. What started as a beacon for the movement has quickly spiralled out of control and degenerated into a PR liability that even some supporters have disowned. Now largely populated with homeless drug addicts and home to a supposed element of ‘black bloc’ the largest Occupy Site has suffered from the death of a member and the assault of two police officers that suffered bites from one of the protestors. While the only site that is likely to be capable of surviving the Canadian winter, due to the Pacific warmth, Occupy Vancouver may very well be in its death throes.

The future for the Occupy movement does not appear promising in Canada. While representing only a small cross section of the Canadian society, it has become an irritant in many instances, and will not likely manage to survive the winter. By spring, a new novelty will most likely have sprung up to replace it.

On the Verge

Young people are presented with no small amount of platitudes and cliched advice as they begin their journey into adulthood. From an early age, students are promised the world by their teachers and parents.

‘You can do anything you want,’ the parents say, ruffling Johnnies hair fondly. ‘The world is your oyster.’

‘Follow your heart,’ the hippy guidance counselor says absently, ‘you will figure out what you want to do.’

As heartwarming as these statements are, they may do little to represent the reality of the uncaring world that these students are about to enter. All too often idealistic teenagers or newcomers to the ‘real’ world are chewed up and spit out by the system. They find themselves slammed with financial issues, unexpected pregnancies and abusive relationships. There is no preperation that is adequate for a young persons first foray into the world. Damage will be done, and although much of it will be healed, the scars will leave themselves etched in the young man or womans personality.

As such, many young adults find themselves jaded and unresponsive to the concept of following their dream or chasing after a particular goal. They choose to settle, and many of them do so comfortably. They have a wife and children, a nice small house and two cars. They consider themselves successful and soon forget the dreams they had in their hot blooded days.

The moment that counts the most is that one deciding choice.

It is the crossroads, between safety, security and normalcy, and the promise of wealth, adventure and dreams.

One may be presented the options more then once, but if refused continuously the chance will fade, and life will have already passed by.

Ultimately, dreams are inspiring and beautiful, the singular aspect of man that holds us above the rest of the animal kingdom.

But they will not pay the rent, fuel the car or feed the mouths of children.

The way things are…

Seriously…for better or worse, this country needs a strong leader. He might not be who you voted for, but please don’t make the Hon. Prime Minister – your leader – out to be some crook or evil scheming politician with plans to turn you into a mindless zombie, and drive Canada into the ground. In a worldwide recession, Canada is the strongest economy among the G8, and is STILL growing at small pa…ce. Yeah, he is not saint – no politician is. But right now – he is what Canada needs. Tighten your belt, we will all have to make it through this – these are not rosy times, but they don’t begin to compare to the world wars or the depression. So please, less whining and ‘Occupying.’ More hard work and determination, solidarity in a positive manner.
And for all that is holy, don’t compare yourself to the protesters of the Arab Spring or Tiananman square…they put their lives on the line. They KILLED for a chance for democracy, and we can’t even turn out to vote? Ha, the worst persecution you face is people driving by and laughing.

Wake Up Call

It would not be much of an exaggeration to say that the average North American considers themselves very well informed. Our generation in particular is inundated with a variety of information services, from internet news on mobile apps to television news and magazines. For the first time in human history, nearly every person is privy to the collective wealth of mankind’s knowledge.

Despite this advantage, and perhaps even because of it, many of my generation have developed below average critical thinking skills. They are prone to believing anything they are told; unfortunately this mindset is enhanced and promoted by post secondary institutions, which proceed with education by rote programming and the opinion of professors, some of which hold little to no life experience outside of a school.

This generation holds a high opinion of themselves as knowledgeable people, the champions of democracy and freedom. They participate in the anti-establishment, anti-military, anti-police activities. They riot without a definable cause and buy into conspiracy theories that pit the government against ‘everyman.’ Military and government personnel are now frequently the villains of movies and shows, portrayed as corrupt, bumbling and selfish.  Of course the irony is nearly palpable. The very ones that they rage against are the founders of our free society, and the ones who protect their right to spew pseudo-intellectual propaganda.

One of the flashpoints that have illuminated the gap between young people’s counterculture and the rest of the country is the debate surrounding Islamic Extremism.  Following the shocking attacks of September 2001, the entire nation was united in solidarity, and international attention was drawn to the spectre of radical Islamic terrorism. Of course, the term shocking is only loosely applied. Several intelligence agencies suspected a threat towards the west, and Islamic Terrorism had already reared its head in instances like the attack on the USS Cole. However the average citizen of Canada or the United States saw it to be of little consequence to their everyday life. As such, western citizens were thrown into a state of horrified surprise when confronted with terrorism imported to their shores.  No sooner had the hurt and rage faded into a dull ache, then left wing idealists and conspiracy theorists began to crawl out of the woodwork. While America reeled from the blow, movies and documentaries surfaced accusing the government of orchestrating the attack, quoting theories such as ‘controlled demolition’ to support their argument. Young people who had no more experience then watching a one sided documentary spoke as though they were experts in architecture, foreign policy and home-grown terrorism. The Black Eyed Peas went so far as to classify the CIA as terrorists, along with the Bloods, Crips and KKK.  To some degree this was a knee jerk response to the rising tide of anti-Islamic sentiment that accompanied the terrorist attacks. Human rights activists scrambled to remind the American populace that discrimination against a particular religion was unacceptable, while Islamic Americans and left wing journalists trumpeted that Islam was first and foremost ‘a religion of peace.’ As such the American political and social landscape began to swiftly polarize.

The anti-Islam sentiment is not limited to North America. Following the Madrid and London bombings, and the assassination of figures who spoke out against radical Islam (Theo Van Gogh) a right wing group of political figures began to openly criticize multicultural values and the failure of ethnicities to assimilate into their way of life. Geert Wilders was shown to be the leader of a fringe movement in the satirical movie Religulous. Today however, he is recognized to be one of the most powerful men in the Netherlands, and is beginning to export his brand of beliefs to other countries in the EU.

So began a tug of war over the hearts and minds of Western Culture, with much of the media and educational institutions blaming worldwide unrest on foreign policy and warning against discrimination and profiling. Meanwhile, Intelligence Analysts and high ranking government members warned that radical Islam still posed a very real threat. Even the Prime Minister of Canada, who spends hours of every week being briefed by intelligence officials, was criticized for saying that the number threat to Canada was still radical Islam. Sixty percent of Canadians in a recent poll disagreed with this statement.

An excellent analogy to the current state of events is of cavemen. A strong man with a spear and torch is placed at the entrance of a cave to protect the weaker members inside. Over time those inside of the cave make themselves very comfortable and move deeper into the dark recesses. Soon they begin to question the validity of the man at the cave’s entrance. They see his back, and ask, why are we providing for this man to stand at the entrance of the cave?  Of course, they cannot see the wild animals that would love to instantly tear them to shreds.

Most recently Westerners have been confronted by the so called ‘Arabic Spring,’ a series of uprisings among the traditional governments in the Middle East. Arabic citizens, suffering underneath mostly secular dictatorships have decidedly had enough. Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and even to some extent Syria and Iran were rocked by violent protests, in some cases leading to a revolution. Two important pieces of information need to be taken from these circumstances.

Firstly, it was absolutely appalling for young Canadians (such as Brigette DePape, a spoiled university student) to ask for a ‘Canadian version of the Arabic Spring.’  Canada may need to tweak its electoral system, but in no way can one deny that the government is elected through a fair and transparent process. While quick to proclaim the beginning of a police state, these deluded teenagers would barely recognize a dictatorship if they saw one. Burning with an earnest desire to ‘spark change,’ they protest against government gatherings without a single coherent message, sometimes resorting to vandalism and looting. Canada has no need for a revolution or uprising. What it needs is a future generation committed to working hard for their country.

Secondly, there is no cause to assume that these states will simply fall into a pleasant state of democracy shortly after they depose their former overlords. In the wake of the revolution, even with the aid of NATO powers, one should not expect an orderly transition into an organized republic. At best the transition will be protracted, and convincing military members and militia to throw down their weapons could be challenging.

At worst the West may be faced with the creation of one of two evils. The first would be a failed state, broken into armed factions and plummeting into civil war. Similar to Afghanistan, such a state would be the perfect breeding ground for radicals; in the case of Libya it has already been found that several ranking members in the rebellion have ties to Al-Queda.

Secondly, and arguably worse, would be the creation of another Islamic republic. In the vacuum that follows a revolution, the people will look for a strong leader, to guide them through uncertain times. As was the case in Iran, that leader could be a Mullah or other religious figurehead, that would unite them under the cause of Islam. At first, as testified in the book ‘A time to Betray’ by Reza Kahlili, hopes ran high in Iran for the creation of a democratic, progressive state. However, this hope was soon betrayed as the Mullahs united the people under a misguided hatred of Western Civilization and ‘Zionism.’ Egypt, a known bastion for the Muslim Brotherhood, has already shown signs of a similar outbreak, evidenced by the recent storming and looting of the Isreali embassy.

As it stands the West cannot win the war against Radical Islam. This is primarily because its people lack the will to fight, to stand wholeheartedly behind the destruction of the enemy. The need to be on a moral high ground has crippled our chances at victory in the idealogical war. Even worse, homegrown terrorism will continue to be perpetuated while socialists and left wing think tanks demand ‘politically correct’ solutions which hamper the nations ability to effectively target those who stand against us.  As members of society we must wake up and take a stand, cut through the PC message and bring about the rebirth of a national will to fight.
