One country's hero is another's criminal

Canadians are indeed a rare breed.

They're nuts. Politely nuts. But nuts.

He'll end up ok, the whole thing is ridiculous anyway.

Typically Canadian, we are so ridiculously and politically inept at times.... it just leaves me shaking my head.

I am embarrassed.

Cheers

The reason why he was punished is because of an incident in Somalia where memebers of the Airborne tortured and killed an innocent Somali boy and then took pictures of themselves with the dead body.

Those pictures sickened every Canadian who saw them. The memory of it is sickening.

There are now strict rules. A soldier cannot take pictures of himself with a defaced dead body. No matter who the enemy is. That's the rule.

He knew the rules. If he doesn't want to follow them, he doesn't have to be in the Airborne.

Thats just stupid, they should send him back to do his job. Sounds like he was very good at it to me.

Regardless of the outcome I hope he receives the bronze star from the US.

I thought he took the photo.

If he didn't take the photo, I really don't see the problem.

And if they they're not going to charge him with something, they should let him get back to work.

Yeah he should get the bronze star. He should get one here too.

No wonder the moral is so low in the forces.
