    No, don't shut down the thread, stop the politicization of the thread. You don't block others because of the actions of one.
    Thanks from Macduff

    Can we steer the discussion back to the sacrifice made by all on that day?

    Canada was a full partner in the success of the Allied landings in Normandy (‘D- Day’).

    Determined to end four years of often-brutal German occupation, on 6 June 1944, Allied forces invaded Western Europe along an 80-kilometre front in Normandy, France. Of the nearly 150,000 Allied troops who landed or parachuted into the invasion area, 14,000 were Canadians. They assaulted a beachfront code-named “Juno”, while Canadian paratroopers landed just east of the assault beaches. Although the Allies encountered German defences bristling with artillery, machine guns, mines, and booby-traps, the invasion was a success.

    Other Canadians helped achieve this victory. The Royal Canadian Navy contributed 110 ships and 10,000 sailors in support of the landings while the R.C.A.F. had helped prepare the invasion by bombing targets inland. On D- Day and during the ensuing campaign, 15 R.C.A.F. fighter and fighter-bomber squadrons helped control the skies over Normandy and attacked enemy targets. On D-Day, Canadians suffered 1074 casualties, including 359 killed.

    Sometimes I think they don't make men like this anymore. But I've been reading Outlaw Platoon about a platoon fighting in Afghanistan and I think as long as we have men like this, we'll be ok.
    Thank God we have men ready to answer the call.
    And the President, the Patriot he claims to be, said nothing. He's too busy accusing President of Canada for his country burning down the WH during war of 1812. This man is so ignorant of American History.
    Thanks from Devil505 and Dangermouse

    No. My dad fought in WW2 and the Korean war. He fought for this country and without the allies, we might of very well lost WW2. So he has zero knowledge of all the sacrifices many US and Allies made. And have made since WW2 to help this country. He is throwing all of that down the toilet.

    It's kinda hard when your President doesn't mention this day, the Patriot he claims to be.

    Because the Trump family dishonors the memory of all veterans who fought for this country...that's why!
    Faux patriotism is disgusting to me and the heroes of D-Day deserve better!!

    All of us are honoring the heroes of D-Day.
    Some of us believe the best way to do that is to point out the disloyalty that is D. Trump.

    Mods: This is a political forum that honors free speech and debate from all sides.
    If one side doesn't like the way a legitimate debate is going they have no right to ask staff to close it.

    Closing this thread would be staff taking a political side in a legitimate/important discussion.

    You didn't preface that you wanted your thread to be only about the soldiers that died, and it is a public forum.
