Why aren’t we asking more questions about Canada’s involvement in the Middle East?
Rev. Gary Thorne, University Chaplain; Retired Lieutenant-Colonel, Canadian Armed Forces
Does believing Ottawa is under attack help us justify bombing the Middle East? How does the promise of “no boots on the ground” make it okay? Have we lost our moral integrity? Where are the pacifists? Where are the protesting students? Where are the voices of the humanists, atheists, and the religious crying out in anguish over our killing of others? What does our detachment from the daily killing of Middle Eastern radicals and innocents say about the value we place on human life?
