    Canada think their great because next to their neighbours, they look good. But they have many of the same problems as the US with regards to Police mistreatment of first nation people, and their citizens aren't exactly too enamoured with Trudeau's minority government either.
    For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.

        I read an account where a Mowag gunner,under orders, shot two "rebels/fighter/insert name and type of enemy here" off a motorcycle, as part of one of those rescue operations, as they were seen to be bearing an RPG with intent. No-one appears to have batted an eyelid, official or otherwise, so clearly the kid gloves were off, weapons were hot and action was expected. This is quite the contrast to previous actions and events in UNIFIL,going way back.

          The report:

          Of course doesn’t suggest that we may actually draw down some EU money to help the Defence Forces

            The mere thought of it seems to have sent some in DPER reaching for the comfort blankie.

                Good intentions. Nothing to support it.

                  Only previous mention I can find of CJEX
