Canadian military history courtesy of Condi Rice and Ann Coulter
ODonnell noted that the so-called coalition of the willing didnt exactly represent the full support of the international community, but in the fog of the interviews back and forth, Rice just started adding countries that werent even part of the coalition:

RICE: So the Georgians who went there and the Japanese who went there and others

ODONNELL: Actually had soldiers firing weapons on the ground?

RICE: This was not part of the coalition. The people who the British and the Australians and the Poles and all of those who the Canadians, all of those who were ultimately in Iraq, these were not part of the coalition?

Okay she said "ultimately" :eyes:


February 6, 2005
Coulter: "Canada used to be one of our most loyal friends and vice-versa. I mean Canada sent troops to Vietnam - was Vietnam less containable and more of a threat than Saddam Hussein?"

McKeown interrupts: "Canada didn't send troops to Vietnam."

Coulter: "I don't think that's right."

McKeown: "Canada did not send troops to Vietnam."

Coulter (looking desperate): "Indochina?"

McKeown: "Uh no. Canada ...second World War of course. Korea. Yes. Vietnam No."

Coulter: "I think you're wrong."

McKeown: "No, took a pass on Vietnam."

Coulter: "I think you're wrong."

McKeown: "No, Australia was there, not Canada."

1. I loves me some Canada


North of the border and fighting for that free freedom of patriotic liberty Canadians are just like 'mericans except they like putine
and sit on davenports.

BTW way to Condi .... as national security advisor you missed all the warnings on 9/11 and as a
professor @ Stanford you don't know who was in the "coalition of the willing." :dunce:

7. Of course we don't - there isn't even any weather there

Or maybe you people call it "Weathere"



This is a running joke with my brother and I. Weather stops at the border of Canada and Mexico.

3. Canada welcomed me as a refugee
in August 1969 .. My husband and I were born in America.

It is true that Canada did not support the Iraq war nor Viet Nam
