You and others may have to forgive me, I'm a 5 year US military volunteer Vietnam era Veteran. And if you or others don't forgive me, that's OK because I know I did what I could to protect your right to your opinions, even though I may disagree with them, I smile at the majority of the population of the world having the freedom to voice them, because had it not been for the US, and its military, there would be a lot less freedom. And we wouldn't have the internet to voice our opinions on either.
Why are you showing a link to Canada honoring their fallen soldiers and mentioning a US no pictures of the coffins coming off the plane policy?
I can't see any coffins in your youtube piece, I do see them being blocked from sight actually.
What do you see as a difference other than Canadians being behaved without the need for a US like regulation that prevented some Americans' bad behavour?
If you want to respect your fallen soldiers, I'm all for it and you.
I believe the Bush policy in the US respected our fallen soldiers and had some Canadians used their fallen soldiers for antiwar propaganda as was done here in the US, well I would have supported a no picture policy there too.
So the question is why wouldn't you do the same for us? Or are you one of those Bush bashers regardless of the facts?
Are you aware of the people that now show up at the funerals of US soldiers here to disrupt the funeral with their antiwar noisy demonstrations, placards and signs etc.? Do you consider that being respectful to fallen soldiers and does it matter that they are US soldiers?
How about their families and friends? IIRC, recently our socialist democrat congress has denied to make that illegal. Would you support a law or policy to make that activity illegal, as I do? Would you if it were your son's or daughter's funeral? Niece or nephew? A friends'?
Another IIRC thingy, I believe that no picture policy was rescinded because just a week or so ago I saw TV showing IIRC 7 US flag draped coffins inside the plane as they were brought home.
