War is necessary for our security

Re: letter to the editor “Not so proud to be a Canadian”
In response to the letter, it would be nice if only peacekeepers were needed for what is happening in the world today, but unfortunately it’s not just a conflict going on that peacekeepers usually deal with. If you see the news you will see terrorists are the ones killing innocent people. Remember 9-11, Boston and Ottawa: all innocent people. You don’t wait for more to infiltrate into our country, until it’s out of control. Nobody wants or likes war. Unfortunately and sadly, causalities of war do happen but we go to war to stop more innocent people from being killed intentionally, abroad and at home. It’s only an endless war if you don’t stand up to end it. We helped to stop Hitler. I stand proud to be a Canadian for all our men and women who serve to protect us and our country, knowing that it could put their life in danger. This includes police and firemen.
