    If you do not return those traitors to us, then you will have officially broken the last straw.

    You've done nothing to route out terrorists in your country since 9/11.

    Now this!?

    The French boycott hurt them badly, it'll hurt you too, hand those deserters over.

    Your gross overgeneralization is a discredit to you, your country and legitimate conservative thought.

    We have done plenty to root out terrorists. However, Canada is a sovereign nation, with it's own laws and values. Disagreement over the war in Iraq does not equate, terrorism by any means. If those "traitors" do not have a legitimate asylum claim they will be returned to the US for prosecution. This isn't Iran or Saudi Arabia, we do have "due process" something you should be happy we have.

    I suggest you do more research on Canada's role in the global fight against terror.

    Well stated, Isaac, as usual. :)

    Gop Guy - I'm guilty of the generalizations myself from time to time, but at least I unleash when someone comes here looking for trouble. I don't mean to unload on all of Canada, but I get caught up in the heat of the moment. Save the anger for those users. We have some decent Canadian folk who post here who don't deserve to have their country trampled on. We get upset when someone comes here and posts that 'all americans are ignorant slobs', and it pisses us off to no end. I'm sure that's how our Canadian friends feel when someone labels their entire country with the same brush.

    Besides, our NHL would be almost non-existent if it weren't for the Canadians! :p:

    Okay, I went A LITTLE OVERBOARD with those remarks. I know you guys were with us in Afganistan, and if I remember correctly, we dropped a couple bombs on your troops accidentially.

    Sorry, is that what this is about? LOL.

    I could ask you the same question? Why, truly, the great disdain for Canada? Previous posts have also suggested the same thing.

    If you are asking why I am being defensive, the answer is simple. I am a Canadian, I love my country and am proud to be a Canadian citizen. Just as you are American and proud to be a US citizen.

    If I came out and said something ridiculous like "All Amerikkkans are ignorant and their soldier$ deserve to be shot in Iraq" (Taken directly from a Yahoo board) I'd imagine you'd react too. If there's a point to be made, we can debate as has been done, but a baseless accusation won't get you much farther than the debates on the Yahoo boards. Let's just end this now.

    I really have no problem with canada. They on the whole are very similar to us. They very rarely bad mouth us. They usually give what troops they can to support us (albeit when you only have 50k as your army theres only so much you can give).

    They only reason to complain is because they speak french. that just reminds me of those stinking weasels on the opposite side of the ocean. The french i have no condolences for. Only pity and anger.

    Canada has fine English origins, and I don't even mind the French part of it. Can't those two get along? It's Canada's absurd hate speech laws I have a problem with... and the insane political correctness that makes Canada a haven for terrorists... not that the U.S. is so great itself!

    Our hate speech laws are a reflection of our identity of having a cultural mosaic. Racism has no place in our country and I, for one, hope that tradition continues. I don't care if it's white on black, black on asian, asian on native, native on white, they're all wrong. Multiculturalism is a priority value and one that I think makes for a unique cultural identity.

    As for Canada being a terrorist haven there is perhaps some truth in this. Our immigration policies have changed very little since Canada's inception. The system is changing to be more in line with the US, but as long as we have our dated refugee claimant system, we have a huge whole in our security net.

    However, it should be noted that attacks on Canadian soil by terrorists are few, if any and there has yet to be an attack on the US by terrorists from Canadian soil to the best of my knowledge and all potential terrorists have been caught thus far.
