Canada: Land of the GREATLY under appreciated


"Why is it only our country that has to fight in the Middle East, Canada should send some troops in!"

- last week over xbox LIVE


you guys arent very bright are you...I'm Canadian..a very proud one at that
thats a quote i heard from some american kid a couple weeks ago

creeping judas3877d ago

thats a very short sighted comment. do you really think americans are the only ones fighting in the middle east. Canada has one of the largests army presences in the area right after USA. Theres English there, theres Australians there, there are few platoons from the Scandinavian countries.

its not just your country fighting there.

Canada rules. This coming from a guy who endured a foot and a half of snow fall in one night last week. Montreal seems to be a real hotbed for game design and animation lately.
