Canada Is Being Attacked Becasuse Canada Is At War And Attacking The Enemy Is How Wars Are Fought And Won!


Is what we are seeing in Canada really radicalise converts, or the rotten fruit of seeds sown by years of bad Harper changes to our laws?

Is what we are seeing in Canada really radicalise converts, or the rotten fruit of seeds sown by years of bad Harper changes to our laws?

What is up Canada? Why do we keep asking the question,  “why we are being attacked?” I would think that it is quite obvious, “We declared war on people!” Please let us climb down off of our lofty moralistic, hypocritical perch and remember that it is the Canadian government who decided to send fighter jets to bomb innocent men, women or children, where they sleep, work, go to school and pray, in an attempt to rid the world of ISIS/ISIL. Let us not forget that this government has committed Canada to take part in the murdering of hundreds, with the possibility of thousands of innocent civilians in Iraq. A good many of us self-righteous Canadians are willing to refer to the senseless loss of life that we and our allies are responsible for committing on others, as acceptable collateral damage. We continue to do this rather than facing the fact that these deaths are every bit as senseless and even more brutal than anything ISIS is capable of doing to us, if indeed these killings are ISIS sanctioned at all. We are guilty of using the same propaganda and tactics in our past, like every time  a settler was killed by an Indian it was recorded as a horrific massacre by the savages, but every time a tribe of Indians was wiped off the face of the earth by the colonizing settlers in what should have been considered as a massacre, the slaughter was written up as a valiant victory against the savages. Innocence is innocence in my book, dead is dead and injustice is injustice, no matter what the ethnicity of the victim. All of those innocent people dying as a result of  our actions on their home soil have families and friends, who will harden their resolve  and refuse to be intimidated  as Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the Leader of the Official Opposition Tom Mulcair and Justin Trudeau leader of the Liberal Party of Canada have all stated they are going to commit to.   I would ask where has all this hardening of resolve has gotten anyone involved in this war so far and where is it going to take us in the future? As we mourn our dead and voice our feelings of shock horror and outrage, perhaps it would be wise to reflect for a moment about how those who are dying every day and seeing whole families wiped out hourly, for months and years at a time by our actions, feel.

I keep hearing the question asked how this will change us and I do not like the answers that are coming from our leaders, who still think that this problem can be resolved by killing and beefing up our own personal security, instead of rethinking what we are doing when getting involved in policing the world with a stick, instead of brokering for peace through diplomacy.  My heart breaks and tears roll down my face for the senseless deaths of all people, everywhere caused by politicians who sit in their cushy offices, or rug lined tents, far away from the battlefield spewing out rhetoric, rattling their sabres and sending young people to their deaths and to cause the deaths of others. Time after time this government has shut down embassies in this country and abroad. Canada of late is guilty of bad mouthing the United Nations for cautioning every nation about turning away from diplomatic negotiations to solve problems and choosing  rather to go to war to settle disputes instead. John Baird scoffed and berated Mr Ban Ki-moon for warning the nations of the west that there was a real possibility of the fight coming to the shores of the west and Canada in the not too distant future.

Yesterday Canadians along with politicians and the press got a feeling of what it feels like to be attacked where we live, where we go to offer prayers and thanks to our fallen heroes, at places where we would under normal circumstances feel safe, like when we visit our state shrines and our parliament, the hub of our democratic way of life. The attacks made us angry as a country, but the real question is did we learn anything from it as people? I ask this, because from the comments coming from the prime minister shortly after the incident it was evident that he hadn’t. Meaningless rhetoric was still flowing freely from his mouth and the empty words that amounted to little more than  sabre rattling were obviously meant to advance his agenda of more intrusion into the private lives of Canadians and more powers for security agencies like the RCMP and CISIS, then actually finding out what can be done to end the feeling of  that these young people felt so strongly about.

Everyone seems to be worried about how the gunman got into Center Block with a shotgun after killing a soldier at a war memorial and how it could be happening in Canada, but nobody is willing to say that this is a minuscule example of the suffering that the innocent people of Syria and Iraq face every day at the hands of Canada and her allies. I think that Canadians need to understand and should learn from this that war is a dirty, nasty business and people do die. We need to understand that we are no longer safe, because we are so far away from the actual theater of war.

Why would a Canadian nationals feel so strongly against this country’s treatment of the people of Syria and Iraq, or if you prefer ISIS/ISIL, that they would choose to turn their backs on all that they have been taught, their religion, their values, and their government and be willing to lay down their lives and die for those people? I believe that it is foolish at best for this country to constantly make excuses and blame Islamic extremists for actions our nationals feel that they must do to support those we are at war with, instead.  I think that it would serve everyone in this country better if our leaders spent more time trying to find out what they think is so wrong with what we are doing.  This government really needs to consider what it is that certain Canadians feel so strongly about that they are willing to kill and be killed to stop. This is not a case of some old Islamic guys hard set in their ways killing Canadian soldiers at home, it is a case of young Canadians killing their own. Could it be that the younger people of this nation are finally catching on to the hypocrisy that is our democracy and way of life in the west? Is this the only way that these young people felt that they could get through to a government that has become more like a dictatorship than a democratic government?

Is it possible that these 2 guys ended up  killing people because they were mad at the Canadian  government, because the Canadian government ignored their pleas for help? All that I read about both of these young men shows that they were in need of medical help, had been in contact with police and the court system, asked for help and the system failed them both.

  • Michael Zehaf-Bibeau who gunned down Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial, before he was gunned down himself on Parliament Hill Wednesday morning, had told a B.C. judge almost three years ago that he was homeless, addicted to crack and wanted to go to jail so he could change his ways. This young man is on record for committing crimes on several occasions, because he was a homeless addict who the system would not help unless he gave them reason to by committing a crime so that he could be arrested and sent to jail. I guess it was easier for the country and Stephen Harper and his security officials to just leave all of this out when they decided to use this tragedy to their political agenda and make Canadians more willing to give up their privacy without judicial oversight to CISIS and the RCMP.
  •  Martin Couture-Rouleau was shot to death after running his car into two soldiers killing one and injuring the other. The RCMP said that it had been working with Martin Rouleau for at least four months to help him overcome what they deemed as his radicalized,  extremist thinking. The 25-year-old  Martian Rouleau said on Facebook that he had converted to the Muslim faith and began posting messages on Facebook suggesting he wanted to fight in Syria. This got Martian Rouleau designated as a high-risk-traveller, or  too dangerous to be allowed to travel, he was arrested at the airport, stripped of his passport, denied his trip to Turkey, all to be let go, because the police had no evidence to   back up their accusations and allegations. This must have only served as proof to him that Canada no longer stands by its own laws and has become a  banana republic worse than all others, because it hypocritically calls itself something that it is no longer which is a democratic law-abiding country where every citizen is considered innocent, until proven guilty in a court of law. (Not in the offices of CISIS, the RCMP, or even in a government minister’s office)

What is clear to me is that people are dead because 2 young men who needed help were failed by the Harper government and allowed to remain on the streets, instead of getting them the mental help that they needed.

What is next for Canada, will our allies decide that for their own security that they need to bomb Canada to eliminate the threat to their nations from home-grown terrorists that threaten their nations and their people? Is it our turn now to face the judgement and justice of the Western Alliance for our failure to keep home-grown terrorists from multiplying and doing harm to others. I do not believe that sending more jets to do more bombing runs is going to solve anything. I do not believe that giving our security forces more power to take away the rights of Canadians is going to make us more safe. I think that those things only serve to make us more like the people we say that we are better than. We in Canada need to change our ways and begin to reclaim the values and respect that we once had before Stephen Harper decided to turn us from a country that refused to support any process which didn’t seek negotiated to problems,  into a warrior nation whose diplomacy is served at the end of a gun barrel. We have just felt the nip of a little dog’s teeth in some very sensitive areas of our personage and we did not like it. Only time will tell if we were smart enough to realise that no matter how tiny those little teeth are, they do hurt. I think that we the Great Dane are a little less confident today about our ability to win an easy victory, because of our size and the brute force that it allows us to use against those not as big or as powerful as us.

The news media, the Conservative Party of Canada, the New Democratic Party of Canada the heads of CSIS, the RCMP all sought to make Canadians think that Justin Trudeau’s answer of finding the root causes of the terrorists and eliminating them was the answer to stopping the terrorism with a minimum of violence and needless, senseless loss of life was a foolish answer depicting his not readiness to lead this country, but I think that he was right.  If radical Islamist are to be considered as a cancer, than I would have to say that they must view the west with its democracy and Christianity and foreign values liken to a rapidly spreading deadly virus, akin to Ebola. We in the west know what we want the world to look like and we travel throughout it declaring that all other value systems, means of governance, sets of values are  inferior to our own. The nasty little truth that we  choose to shut from our conscience minds, is that it is us in the west that are the disease and that all of the violence, the wars, the terrorism, the senseless loss of life, including the worlds failing economy and the sad state of the worlds environment are merely symptoms, or by-products of  us,  the disease.  Fever, vomiting, diarrhea are all ways the body tries to get rid of an invading, harmful attack on its normal functioning that it perceives as a deadly threat and I would suggest that terrorism and terrorists are those people who wish us to leave them alone to their own culture, their own values, their own religion and their own type of governance. I would also like to suggest that until we in the west stop invading other nations trying to force our ways on them they will continue to fight for their survival, terrorism will not on continue, but escalate and the world will continue to know no peace.

    Funny that reporters never seem to be too concerned about getting these types of real facts out and seem to avoid asking questions such as why this guy was able to get and keep a long gun in the first place.

      Canadian politicians do not answer these types of questions openly and honestly, because it would require transparency and ask of them to take responsibility for their mistakes. Taking ownership of one’s mistakes has consequences that could up costing the honest politician some votes, or heaven forbid an election. Much easier to blame everything on Islamic extremists.
