“[b]I am against it. I was against it and I am even more against it today.[/b] I wonder what we're doing there,” Mario Blais told CTV News yesterday, describing her death as a tear-filled nightmare for the family.
“I knew the Russians couldn't win over there so I don't think the Canadian army could win over there. I was more in favour of the blue helmets, peacekeeping missions, not front-line missions.”
This sort of PR disaster has happened before, but the DND goons move fast to do damage control:
In a communiqué issued after the uncle spoke, the trooper's parents stated their support for her work.
“Despite the terrible news of her sudden passing, Karine achieved her challenge. She wanted to be part of this adventure. She was proud to serve in Afghanistan. She often asked her mother: ‘Mom, are you proud of me?'“ the communiqué said.
“Yes, we remain proud of you, despite our sadness.”
What they do to the families is almost as criminal as what they do to the children.
