Not to mention Canada's participation and support in World War II and the Korean War.

It also means that these two countries, Canada and the United States of America have come together and shed blood together in the name of democracy and freedom.

 

Bull****.

 

Canada went to war against Germany in 1939.

 

Where the **** was the U.S.??

 

Busy trying to sit out the whole thing and war-profiteering to boot. If it wasn't for the idiocy of Japan in December of 1941, God only knows if you people ever would've gotten off your selfish *** and pitched in.

Next kids will boycotts schools because forcing education on them violates their rights.  

 

I didn't stand or say the pledge since some silly nonsense word was added to it in the 50s.

 

It appears you're saying schools should be allowed to violate a student's rights.

 

This is a free speech issue;  the government can NOT force someone to say something.  But of course you don't respect the US Constitution,  you only claim to and accuses liberals of not doing so.

The SCOTUS ruled many years ago that students cannot be forced to say 

the Pledge of Allegiance. Guess this teacher needs to go back to school.

We aided you in the Afghanistan invasion because it was part of a NATO agreement. Thankfully we are less likely to be attacked by a foreign entity than the Untied States. Meanwhile the world is praying that that idiot Trump doesn't start something.
Instead of getting ready for his meetings with world leaders this weekend what was he doing? Trolling web sites for gifs of him hitting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball. The word is out in Washington. Trump is incapable of doing any homework. He's an idiot.

That's what it means to be a Nation's Ally.

It's not just trade agreements and photo ops.

It also means that these two countries, Canada and the United States of America have come together and shed blood together in the name of democracy and freedom.

I'm saying that all 29 NATO nations are pledged to come to the defense of one another if one of them is attacked. You didn't know that?

 

Nice try Tom but it isn't possible to get points across to someone that is so ignorant and stubbornly so to boot.

How you wallow in ignorance, MM. Canada was one of the 12 founding members of NATO (oh, yeh, the U.S. was too - more news for you, undoubtedly). That article is either fake news, or that general doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. Sure as hell you don't.

US policy is 'not to defend Canada' from an attack by North Korea

It is official US policy not to protect Canada in the event of a missile attack by North Korea or any other country, a leading general has warned.

It has long been assumed that Washington would defend its northern neighbour.

However, General Pierre St-Amand, the highest-ranking Canadian officer in the North American Aerospace Defense Command (Norad), dismissed the idea during a parliamentary committee meeting in Ottawa.

“The extent of the US policy is not to defend Canada. That's the fact I can bring to the table,” he said.

This statement surprised many in Canada, with public broadcaster CBC saying it had “demolished a long-held political assumption” that the US would intervene.

******************************************************

If your country isn't going to accept all the refugees and continues to pollute the coastal waters, why should we defend you?

The NATO agreement IS the co-operative defence agreement between the U.S. and Canada.  America used this to call upon its NATO allies when it was attacked by terrorists HQ'd in Afghanistan.  So, the reverse would hold as well.

 

It appears I incorrectly assumed Canada was NOT part of NATO.   But yea, if Canada is a NATO member then what this Canadian general said (assuming he did say what is reported),  is factually incorrect.

I believe all the facts in this story are true,  but the way it is presented is fake news.

 

“The extent of the US policy is not to defend Canada. That's the fact I can bring to the table,” he said.

 

As far as I know Canada and the US do NOT have a mutual defense agreement similar to NATO.    Therefore the statement about 'US Policy' is true:  neither country is required,  per agreement, to defend the other.

 

But the fake part of the story is: "It has long been assumed that Washington would defend its northern neighbor".

 

I believe Canadians can still assume that the US would support Canada if it was attacked, even a Trump admin.  E.g. if Canada was attacked and declared war on the aggressor,  the US would likely declare war on said aggressor.

 

The funny thing here is the story is a veiled attack on Trump and the foolish Trump supporters here didn't understand that.  What fools.

I guess that is the thanks you get for coming to America's assistance in Afghanistan through the NATO alliance.  I doubt this story is true by the way.

Teacher on leave after boy is forced to stand during Pledge

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit-area teacher is on leave after an 11-year-old boy said he was physically forced out of his chair during the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

Stone Chaney, a sixth-grader in the Farmington district, said he makes a pledge to God and family — not a flag — and has skipped participation since second grade.

 

He said he was doing homework during the pledge on Sept. 7 when a teacher at East Middle School "snatched" him out of his chair.

 

"I told the lady that I don't stand for the pledge and she just kind of glared at me. ... I was confused when it happened because I didn't know what was going on. And then I was irritated because that's not supposed to happen," Stone said.

 

He said another teacher the next day yelled at him to stand up.

*************************************************

You should be standing up during the Pledge Of Allegiance unless you have a physical disability. This is what happens when you let the school system go PC, nobody is in control.

 

Next kids will boycotts schools because forcing education on them violates their rights.
