Canada's Afghan War memorial unveiled in secret and you can't visit

David MenziesMission Specialist

Did you hear that a new memorial for the Afghan War was unveiled in Ottawa? Since there wasn't a press release and families of the fallen weren't invited to the unveiling, almost nobody knew it was coming.

Going forward, the memorial will be unavailable to the general public and families of the fallen may only pay their respects in person “upon request.”

To add insult to injury, earlier this month, the Ministry of Veteran's Affairs posted a video commemorating VE Day featuring German soldiers instead of Canadian.

Oh well. All he has to do is offer every veteran a big cheque for PTSD and most would forgive him.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 37,232 Attacks, 240,325 Killed, 319,751 Injured that we know of

Trudeau is a treasonous enemy of Canada and everything that’s good, decent and noble about western civilization. Dr. Phil would have a field day with him. He’s definitely afflicted with narcissistic personality disorder.

I worked for Veteran’s Affairs for 25 years….just as a reminder…it was not Harper who sent our troops to Afghanistan…it was Jean Chretien…..Harper had the smarts to upgrade their kit.

The did not go to please George Bush….they went on a lawfull UN mandate….

But they went because Afghanistan was harbouring Osama bin Laden….so the underlying issue was Islamic ingratitude for support to free Afghanistan from Russian occupation…the Russians (Soviet Union at the time) were a little bit miffed because Islamic militants dismembered and killed their embassy staff in Kabul because they had the gall to insist that their foreign aid was contingent on letting girls attend school….without the head men getting a chance to “mullah” that over.

Some of the bravest men in this conflict were the many young Afghanis who volunteered for the police force…in spite of horrendous casualty rates they kept coming to the recruitment centers in the hope of establishing policing by community consent.

Our troops kept roads open….disarmed IEDs….fought skirmishes….and gave overwatch to Afghan Police .

The Afghanistan war memorial is not new as described in this article. This was orginally a battlefield memorial started on the grounds of Afghanistan where so many Canadian lose their lifes . The memorial was brought home and spend almost a year making several stop across Canada before going to Ottawa.

Keith, the MSM is imposing a higher standard on the military than they do to the groper-in-chief. You can’t expect soldiers, sailors and airmen to be a bunch of choirboys. (Or is that choirpeople?)

Are we sure the memorial is celebrating Canadian soldiers and not Afghan soldiers? After all, Trudeau did give Afghan veterans $50 million and didn’t complain that they were asking for too much.

The Left Stream Media knows what the real problem with Canada’s military is………………………………………

As a retired member of the (Brit) Armed Forces, I do not think Canadian Soldiers will be to worried about this situation. Soldiers tent to stay away from Memorials if they can. Never the less, I think Trudeau has just topped the list in Sir Winston Churchill’s memorial “Pakistani are the scum of the earth” speech.

I wonder what a sexual misconduct survey of the Liberal Party would find? Well, we already know about Junior.

It’s funny you know. Neville Chamberlain at the hands of a certain ‘Fat Man’ taught us that appeasement only results in further aggression. In fact Bismarck allegedly once said that ’Weakness breeds aggression".

Sadly it seems like Trudeau was too busy flunking out of university to learn anything and in particular, anything about history. And so his appeasement of muslims at the expense of Canada continues.
commented 2019-05-22 11:03:13 -0400
And the top military brass are going along with this.

It’s not surprising that this government has no respect for our troops, our vets, Canadians or Canada.
It is led by a pandering fool who has placed Muslims with no knowledge of Canada or Canadian values in positions of power. He also placed incompetent people (Climate Barbie, Freeland for example) in positions of power simply to show that he is a feminist.
He is actually just another in the following:
Question: « what is one mile long and has an a**hole at every foot? »

Betty Power commented:

“I sure hope Canadians give Trudeau and his Liberal Party the bum’s rush in October this year.”

Canadians will sure try to, but, sadly, the Laurentians and Quebecers won’t; and they hold the plurality of seats in the Laurentian Empire.

Lets see: $41 million for Afghanistan’s veterans but a week later we are told that there just isn’t any funds for OUR veterans. Also after giving $2 million to refurbish an Afghanistan hospital a veteran is told that there isn’t any money for our broken troops. PM Mr Sad Face but no tears

Then there are the proud German troops going off to fight Allies, including Canadians, in a government film embracing Canada’s participation in WW2.

Our scholarly PM, presently seen as a Canadian joke internationally, can’t mention Jews when addressing the Holocaust, probably to elicit Muslim votes since rumour has it that they think it’s a hoax.

BTW, where has Mr Skanky Socks been hiding theses days? Definitely not in Parliament. And his wife? Princess HasNoBrains has been essentially MIA.

I can only say to him what his mother (who only knows for certain – more or less – that Fidel is his father) what she announce multiple times at her one woman show,” F*** You!”

We must ensure that no one from the Trudeau bloodline ever holds a position in government again,and when Trudeau the prancing puppet is turfed any remnants of this pathetic disgusting fool should be destroyed.The only thing this ass should be remembered for is that he was the worst PM in Canadian history and that he turned his back on Canadians to appease his savage brethren!!! Rot in hell you traitor!!!!

We need a F^%k you tour, military parade for this government. Sorry I stole the idea from your foul mouthed mother.
commented 2019-05-22 09:19:10 -0400
What.s the matter Trudeau you afraid your special people might deface the memorial?
commented 2019-05-22 09:10:37 -0400
Another slap in the face to our soldiers and Vets,this Trudeau government has complete and utter disdain for our military!! From what I hear this was kept under wraps because they didn’t want to upset the Muslims by having a ceremony for our soldiers who fought against the Taliban and others over there. Trudeau you truly are a disgusting POS!!!
commented 2019-05-22 09:08:54 -0400
If the Canadians taxpayers paid for the memorial, then they have a right to see it or is it reserved strictly for the rich and famous, people who have not supported our troops and who do not have the intestinal fortitude to volunteer in the military.
If war were to break out, these same bureaucratic overpaid gutless pansies who scream threats at opponents will be more than glad to see our soldiers stand between them and the bunkers the elitists have constructed around the nation so they can hide.
Time to turf the Laurentian elites and the rest of their ilk.
