In occupied Afghanistan fields the United States’ heroin poppies grow.

Since the turn of the 20th century Canada was there to fight for the freedom of others. For decades the Canadian government sent our people abroad to fight to liberate any country that was being occupied by another aggressive state. For decades Canada sent its people abroad to defend our fellow man’s inalienable right to be free.

Throughout the entire 20th century Canadians were liberators. Canadians were peace keepers. Canadians freed the occupied, the oppressed and the abused. Canadians paid the ultimate sacrifice to liberate others, to bring about peace and to keep that peace. On October 7, 2001 that all ended. On October 7, 2001 the Canadian government conspired with and aided the United States government in an unprovoked war of aggression against a sovereign foreign state. Canada aided the United States government in an armed attack against a country that had nothing to do with the criminal hijacking of US commercial airlines on US soil on September 11, 2001. None of the hijackers were from Afghanistan. None of the planners of the hijacking and attacks were from Afghanistan. The majority of hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, including the accused mastermind - bin Laden.

Because of the criminal act of a war aggression by the Canadian government against one the poorest sovereign foreign states on Earth I will now forever remember that on that day, October 7, 2001, Canada became an aggressor, a destroyer, a butcher, a murderer, a torturer and a war monger. On that day I will remember that Canada sent our people abroad to overthrow by military force the government of a foreign sovereign state. On that day I will remember that Canada sent our people abroad to attack and kill the very poor, defenseless and innocent people of Afghanistan. On that day I will remember that Canada sent our people to Afghanistan to injure and kill women and children. On that day I will forever remember that Canada was no longer a nation of liberators and peace keepers.

Every November 11 prior to 2001 I use to proudly remember all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that others could be free. I use to respect the Canadian Armed Forces for the brave, noble, and selfless acts they had done to defend the freedom and sovereignty of Canada and other foreign states. Now every November 11 I will shamefully remember all those innocent people who had their freedom, their homes and their lives taken away by Canadians. Every November 11 I will bow my head in shame for I will remember that my fellow Canadians were sent abroad to attack, to destroy, to occupy, to torture and to kill thousands of poor, defenseless and innocent people.
