I sat, as did millions of other Canadians, and watched as our neighbour’s
underwent a peaceful transition of power this past week. At first, I felt a
pride and patriotism as I watched Barack Obama take his oath of office.
However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched George W. Bush
board Air Force One for one last time.
I saw 21 Marines, in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to
the outgoing president.
It was then that I realized how far America’s military had deteriorated
Every last one of them missed.
