URGENT POST: Anti-Americanism is Not Unfounded

I usually don't post two days in a row, but it is absolutely necessary to bring this to the attention of my readers. I think there is a reason why many Canadians harbour anti-American sentiments. Fox's late night bullshit show, Red Eye, commented on General Andrew Leslie's claim that Canada will need an "operational break" in 2011 (re: Chief says army will need 'operational break' in 2011)

Let's flip this around: if Rick Mercer made a parody about the American troops, the US will surely invade us. The sad part is that these comments are directed at our troops, who have thus far fought valiantly given the workload. This show was especially in poor taste considering that four of our bravest just came home from Afghanistan today (Thank you for your service, God bless). Look, at the end of the day, we're on the same damn team. We literally "fuel" your wars, so don't make us hold that against you.

To the members of the Canadian Forces, thank you for your service, we're sorry you had to hear such insensitive comments. Keep fighting the good fight.
