We noticed, it was nice. From the Western Front of WWI to the storming of the Normandy beaches to Desert Storm, there have been Canadian troops fighting alongside us (and in the case of the World Wars, long before we even got involved), and fighting well. I just read a story about 3 Canadian snipers who kicked the shit out of a large number terrorist pukes for a straight day during Operation Anaconda. Yes, we noticed. Yes, we appreciated. Yes, we would like you to turn your military loose on French Canada.
As for the Tommies… They are asskickers, and good friends. (I don’t know about you, but I find that Tony Blair guy kind of frightening. He has this cultured aristocratic voice and manner, but he’s usually talking politely about kicking the hell out of somebody and he’s always got this hard-ass look on his face.)
Hooray for the Commonwealth.
