Cut N Run


Has it really been over a week since I last posted?

There is certainly enough news to discuss, and it's not like I've been super busy or anything. This blog funk may or may not continue. We'll see I guess.

But there is one thing that needs to be posted.

Canadians do not cut and run

In a speech to about 1,000 of the troops he pursued dual objectives -- not only trying to boost the morale of those on the ground, but also attempting to counter critics of the mission back home.

"There could be some who want to cut and run,'' Harper declared. "But cutting and running is not my way. And it's not the Canadian way.

"We don't make a commitment and then run away at the first sign of trouble. We don't, and we will not, as long as I'm leading this country.''

Now that's the kind of Prime Minister I can be proud of. It is NOT the Canadian way to run away and hide like a scalded dog. We've had our nose bloodied to be sure, but we've got plenty of fight left in us. And the miserable bastards who attempt to disrupt our mission in Afghanistan will soon find out just how much fight we have. They will learn of our strength and resourcefulness, just as many others have learned.

We didn't run away in 1917 at Vimy.

We didn't run away in 1944 at Normandy.

We didn't run away in the 1950's in Korea.


God bless Canada, and God bless our troops. We'll keep the home fires burning until you return.
