Canadian Soldiers, Canadian Politicos.

I like canuck soldiers. They are always great to work with (as, frankly, are all Commonwealth Nation soldiers I have worked with). They live with their government, and gamely support it, as any soldier of a democracy should. One of the things I do for a living currently is work on an upcoming ABCA alliance exercise. ABCA is America, Britain, Canada, Australia. The ABCA alliance has existed since WWII, and currently all of it's member nations are fighting and dying in the GWOT. The Canadians may have declined Iraq, but they are in Afghanistan.

Canadian politicians, however, are a different breed.
