we move to canada
It's 100 Canadian troops & 1 Canadian Diplomat. Unless there was another death last night?
Unless there was another death last night?No, thank goodness, there was not. Thanks for catching that, I've changed it.
As I've said before, I'm really not one for politics so, to be honest, I don't have clue one why Canadian troops are in Afghanistan. However, I don't need to know the details to know that war in general is simply pointless; people shouldn't have to die to work out their differences. Yes, I'm stating the obvious, but I felt I had to say it, anyway."When will we see the simple truth,That the only thing that's worth a damn,"The life of a child is more than a forest, The life of a child is more than a border, The life of a child is more than a religion, The life of a child is only a heartbeat from eternity,We must believe, for the sake of humanity,We must believe..."From the song "The Simple Truth"by Chris de Burghfrom the album Flying Colours
Chris de Burgh*shudder*
Not a fan, I take it. :PI have a friend who used to have the same attitude until the day he actually attended a live Chris de Burgh performance with me. I was surprised he even wanted to go; I expected he'd hate it. So, I was even more surprised when, at the end of the performance, he had a big smile on his face. "You enjoyed that?" I asked.He just shrugged and said, "How could you not enjoy that?" :)There is a certain magic to a live Chris de Burgh performance; recordings of his songs just don't do justice to his "presence."
There is a certain magic to a live Chris de Burgh performance;I can assure you I'll never be able to verify that statement.I wouldn't even know who he is, except that he sings what is probably my number one most hated song in the universe. Allan will protest, thinking he knows my most hated song, but that one is only in the rock category. This is Most Hated Song Of All Time.Let's just say I'm not a Lite-FM girl and leave it at that. :)
Fair enough. Let me guess; "The Lady in Red," right? ;)Actually, not one of my favorites, either, but mostly because Chris de Burgh has so many more songs to his credit, the vast majority of which are far superior, particularly in the content of the lyrics. "The Lady in Red" has all the depth of a piece of onionskin paper; there are far better songs to choose from that I wish would get more attention but, for the most part, non-fans know him only for that one song which, while OK, certainly is not indicative of his best work.
What the hell song could it be? I'm looking through his singles and I guess I see one contender (from 1986). It's shit, certainly, but you can't hate it that much.
I do. I hate it that much. I've mentioned this before to you, but you never know the song. John AA guessed correctly.Like I said, I'm just not a Lite FM person. When I go to the dentist, I ask them to turn off the radio in the room. (Which is mostly commercials anyway.)
Back to the topic of the post...As I've said before, I'm really not one for politics so, to be honest, I don't have clue one why Canadian troops are in Afghanistan. I don't know if being interested in what's going on in the world constitutes being "into politics", but I'll say that most Canadians have no clue why Canadian troops are in Afghanistan.
Unless you count "to make up to the US for not being in Iraq" as a reason.
Reasons for going into a war generally are political so I rarely, if ever, understand the reasons behind a war.Of course, that doesn't stop me from thinking wars are stupid...
Forget Canada, it's hard to know why the US in Afghanistan.

In the great tradition of fixating on the least important thing in the thread:When I go to the dentist, I ask them to turn off the radio in the room.You can do that??? Whoa!
You can do that??? Whoa!Yeah! It's a big assertiveness thing for me. I started doing it a few years back in restaurants when the music is unnecessarily loud. (I'm not talking about a pub or a party atmosphere. I mean when a small, quiet restaurant has "background" music, a/k/a noise pollution, turned up too loud.) Then I advanced to doctor's offices and the exam room at the dentist's. My biggest current issue is the pool at the Y where I swim. The lifeguards like to keep music on really loud - for themselves. I swim to decompress. It's an ongoing battle, albeit a very polite one.
Do a grocery store next. I DARE you!
Oh man, no way. I couldn't. That's beyond me. The dentist's office is one-on-one. Plus, I'm the patient, I feel my comfort (and tension level) is important. The grocery store is so public. I just couldn't. I guess I don't seem so brave now. :)
So much for my nefarious scheme to exploit other people's bravado to get a more pleasant grocery shopping experience.
Forget the local grocery store - go after Wal-Mart. Would be so much more satisfying. ;)
But then I'd have to go in a Wal-Mart, something I've never done and never will do.
