FOX News mocks Canada's role in Afghanistan

Monday, March 23, 2009


Written by Scott Gilbert

FOX News: Fair and Balanced. The CBC this morning reported on a FOX News segment where the anchors blasted Canada's military for wanting to "take a break" in Afghanistan. The report even included a comment suggesting the invasion of Canada because we have "no army". Canadians are outraged, yet FOX has so far not apologized and Canadian military leaders are not saying anything. What are your thoughts on this issue? So far 116 Canadians have died in Afghanistan for this war that nobody seems to understand, and was started by the US, not Canada. The video is here for you to comment on.

    It’s hardly something to be offended about. If this was the President or his administration saying this sort of thing, then yes, we should be upset.

    These guys are a bunch of Fox News hacks doing a middle of the night show, i.e., no credible network would give them daytime hours to express their views. Even Fox News doesn’t think they’re credible enough to have during the day.

    Canadas sole purpose there is to secure oil pipelines for consumption and export to the US/europe and canada. That is were most war finances come from. Yes over 100 canadaians have died there but they died to protect oil not their country. There is no war on terrorism going on. there is no war on those people, its just an excuse to invade and explit a weak countries natural resources.
    To adress the question at hand is the candaian military shit? Yes it is. Look at any reputable online military ranking website and youll soon find out that canadas military is one of the worst. 30 million citizens can never finance a world army.
    Too bad, i dont care if i hurt any feelings but its true... canada can be invaded in 20 minutes probably if the US wasnt there and nobody would care beacuse most of the citizens are immigrants anyways, what a shame...

    Hey Chris,

    Thanks for your opinion, but I would suggest going back into your isolated cave and painting some drawings on the wall. That way in a few millennia, archeologists can go back and say "Hey, there was cavemen in Canada in 2009!"

    Thanks for your individual perspective. It's good to know about your oppressive views so people all around this country can continue to fight against what you stand for. Weak Mind. Weak Body. And Weak Pride in Yourself.

    hey Rob,
    what do you mean? What Chris just said makes perfect sense and is unfortunatly ture.
    Your response doesnt address anything it only mocks another persons opinion.

    I think you should clarify your opposing point of view when you dont like what someone says.
    Take care.

    I agree fox news is probably the dumbest overall news problem, from glen beck to everyone else on the network. But the problem is that americans actually watch this, and people outside of america see fox as america's main news source and when they think of life in america they think of fox. Fox news should appologize, since when does a company have more power than a government?

    Fox news is terrible, it always has been but KINGPIN is right it is seen as reputable for people who don't know any better. They should most definitely apologize the only reason we are there in the first place is specifically FOR the U.S. and yet they mock us? That is extremely insulting.

    On another note, to the random comments that really have nothing to do with this news story from Chris, Rob and Shawn... Chris, I agree with Rob when he says you have no pride, that is something truly unforgivable. If every Canadian behaved that way we wouldn't have this country and if you don't like it so much, GET OUT! Sadly you say our military is poor based on online ratings, I really don't think that is a good judge of things, we need to stop relying on the internet. And you know the U.S. did try and invade us once if you actually paid attention in History, but they lost. Britain would care and actually a lot of our allies would a long with most the country excluding you. We would have a lot of support other than the U.S. if we were attacked. Canada is a great country with free health care and less ignorant people than a lot of the world, excluding you. You just don't realize how amazing it is because we don't have the best army. Well who cares about that thats what we use the U.S. for and we have strength in numbers. What Canada is doing overseas, although I myself have never condoned it, is peacekeeping and yes probably exploiting oil, but men are still dying and giving their lives mostly for the U.S's greediness and to protect our alliance with them. You have no idea the actual reasons behind everything and I'm not sure anyone really does. Do not go insulting your own country when you are actually quite ignorant to the subject.
