    War costs lives.... period.

    Stardate 5669.45

    It would seem that H-Dawg has personally put a ban on any media coverage of the return of fallen soldiers to our land. Gee, I think he should stop trying to be so much like George McChimpy. Our people NEED to know that there is a price involved with war, beyond tax dollars. By attempting to cover up images of coffins draped with Canadian flags, Harper is only showing more of what many people suspected he would be like. This same practice is under fire in the US and now it is under fire here.

    Couple this with the fact that Klein in Alberta and McGuinty in Ontario are defying Harper's stop to lowering flags to half mast when soldiers are killed and we can start to wonder why the hell Harper is so bent on dishonoring the troops he supposedly wants to support so badly.

    You cannot hide the ugly truth about war. People die. Lowered flags and coffins SHOW us this, and hiding these things from people is dishonest and dishonorable. In fact, this ridiculous "Bushism" will have the opposite effect they desire. Instead of drawing attention away from our mission in Afghanistan, they are suddenly getting far more media attention than they ever would have before...

    All opinions shared on this site are strictly my own. Some people may disagree and that is fine, but rude comments or overzealous debate will be curtailed. I enjoy civil discourse, and encourage independent thought. I oppose George W. Bush and his Wars based on lies.
