Dear Fox News,
FUCK YOU!!!! I like to keep it clean on here because my grandparents may be reading this but you hit below the belt and now its my turn.
Congratulations, you idiots just single handedly kicked the intelligence level of your country down another notch. It's morons like you who contribute to the stereotype that Americans are ignorant to everything outside of the USA. I am not going to be stupid like you and think all Americans are like that, because I like the US and I know that there are lots of citizens that are intelligent and not ignorant to world affairs. So here's a lesson, try to stop eating the paint off the walls and pay attention for a minute...
Why are we pulling out in 2011? Canada has been in Afghanistan since 2001, shortly after you guys went in because we are your allies and friends. We took on a more serious combat role in the south, in 2004/05, when you were searching for WMD's in Iraq. Since the beginning we have lost 115 brave men and women in Afghanistan and you have lost 590. Since your intelligence level is that of a 5th grader let me remind you that the US has 10 times the population of Canada. I would say we have sacrificed a lot considering we are there as your ally and maintain a small force of 2500.
Other than you and the British, we are currently, the only country with a combat role. Not to mention we are in the South which is one of the most volatile areas in Afghanistan because it borders with Pakistan and has been a Taliban stronghold since the beginning. I personally lost friends taking a stronghold that the Russians failed to take back during their occupation....which brings up an interesting point...
We wouldn't even be in this mess if your government didn't give arms, money and assistance to Afghanistan during Russia's occupancy. I understand you had to ensure the evil communists didn't take over the world but if you would have cleaned up after yourselves instead of flying into the sunset like a superhero, the Taliban wouldn't have been able to take over so easily and Osama Bin Laden, (who fought the Russians with American weapons), would have had a more difficult time setting up terrorist camps and planning evil acts.
Lets face it Fox News, you're a joke of a network and you give your citizens a bad name. Canada has done its fair share in Afghanistan and is stepping back to allow other NATO countries to step up to the plate. This was your mess, we have done more than our fair share and you should be a little more grateful. Being the founders of peacekeeping, we might even look to places like Sudan to deploy our forces because there is a serious genocide going on. Maybe if Iraq's oil doesn't pan out we will see you there? That's if you can push China out, or maybe it would be easier to invade Iran, they have lots of oil...
Which brings me to my final point, US invasion of Canada and oil. You may have been joking about invasion but it is happening as we speak but with corporate assistance not military. The US and Canada have been pursuing deeper integration and I won't be surprised if we are involved in some sort of a customs union in the next 8 years. Maybe there will be labor mobility involved? In that case I won't be surprised if Americans start coming to live and work in Canada where our mounties can ride around on horses wearing red tunics, and not armored cars with bullet proof vests because we are not killing each other every day. That is if they can stand the "frigid" winters and igloos we live in.
In conclusion, FUCK YOU Fox News! Next time do your research before bashing such a good friend and ally. There are a lot of pissed of Canadians today because of the ego and ignorance of your news station decided to take a joke a little too far.
