Airstrikes against Gadhafi's forces were authorized to begin immediately after the United Nations Security Council narrowly approved a resolution late Thursday stating "all necessary measures" can be taken to protect Libyan civilians -short of a military occupation of the country.

F-35 envy....Good god man...The present pilots flying our F-18s are some of the bravest aviators in the world. Those things are so old that we have to MAKE the parts from scratch....They've stopped supplying them!! Wake up !!! We NEED those new planes...What do you want Canada to do..Buy the old Russian Migs ???? Maybe the old Israel Typhoons ??? Come on...We have had any "new" airplanes since we purchased the U.S.A's antiquated F-18's in the early 90's !!!
Now...Let the work begin, help those people that stand for freedom in the face of tyranny, see to it that they too have a chance top experience true freedom !

of course Canada is getting involved. I ask you, when has Canada NOT been involved in a war??? Anyone who doesn't think Canada is a military player I urge you to do some research and read about the country's involvement outside of WW1 and 2.
Canada has a very shady military past...and still does.
