2 CDN soldiers die in Afghanistan, Cretien meets the plane.
This week 2 Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan were killed, and the plane carrying their bodies will be met with an honor guard, salutes, and Jean Cretien.

We have lost over 300 soldiers in Iraq, and Bush hasn't even interupted his vacation or even a golf game to render honors.

I don't agree with the war(s), but does this administration have no shame in the slightest?

1. Bush is a narcissist... he couldn't care less how many have to die

... their deaths mean absolutely nothing to him, as far as paying respects go. He's only concerned about the numbers if they would effect his re-selection.

I am Jack's complete lack of suprise.

2. Here is a link to the story....
http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/106...

The bodies of two Canadian soldiers killed in Kabul, Afghanistan have returned home. Under bright blue skies, the military plane transporting the soldiers touched down at CFB Trenton Sunday morning.

A solemn crowd of family members, soldiers and politicians gathered at the Canadian Forces base in Trenton, Ontario, to mark their arrival.

The coffins holding Sergeant Robert Short, 42, of Fredericton, and Corporal Robbie Beerenfenger, 29, of Ottawa were greeted by a military guard of honour.

Short's son Josh and brother Mitchell were at the base for the ceremony. Prime Minister Chretien, Defence Minister John McCallum and Chief of Defence Raymond Henault were the crowd of dignitaries who braced against the cold to witness the two fallen soldiers' arrival.

6. You know what I'd love?
A link to ANY story (other than Jessica Lynch) that says ANYTHING about the administration taking some interest in the dead and wounded from their disgusting little charade in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It is hard to think of a Bush supporter as anything other than some sort of Demon, playing court to the the Prince of Lies.

4. Has he or Dickie been to anyplace in Harms Way
Every President or VP before these two chickenhawks visited their troops over Thanksgiven/Christmas in troubled lands.

I believe this is Bosnia.

5. *'s behavior sickens me!
Even Reagan *spit, spit* had the common DECENCY to meet the bodies flown back here after Lebanon, e.g., an spend some time with their families. Bush is a despicable waste of protoplasm and an oxygen thief! :grr:
