Hosay can ewe sea?

It seems sad that my first ever entry is a rant.

Once upon a time, the only superpower in the world invaded one of the little rubbish countries (i.e. Afghanistan).

And one summer evening the Special Forces of this superpower surrounded a camp of scummy arabs and (when those arabs wouldn't jolly well surrender) they called in Artillery for a bit and then moved in.

In the ensuing melee, a very naughty 14 year old boy shot and killed a member of these 'very' Special Forces. The boy was himself shot (twice in the chest and lost an eye) but survived. However, that was his own fault for being in the country in which his family lived.

He was captured, imprisoned, refused legal council and mis-treated until he recently turned 18. Now, he's being tried as a War Criminal.

To add icing to the cake, the family of the Special Forces guy are suing the boys family. Why not, they're probably related to a rich arab somewhere along the line.

And they say Justice is dead?

However, there is a silver lining. As this boy was born in Canada and is therefore a Canadian citizen, our government has stepped in and....oh, who am I kidding? We've done nothing.
