This was 2 weeks PRIOR — August 14, 1945 in New York.

August 15, 1945 (Japan time) was when Japan surrendered,
9-days after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and
6-days after Nagasaki.

The surrender papers were signed September 2, 1945.

72-years ago, TODAY. A day for sober remembrance. 

6 long years and 1 DAY after WW II began.

A glorious day for humanity.

We now need to be more vigilant than ever.

This was the War that was meant to end all future wars. Well, that has not happened.

As a quick glance at my recent posts will prove I have nothing against Canadians, actually I am quite fond of most of them. That I am so happy with my Canadian Red Poppy (and am devastated that I lost it) just about sums it up.

It has been a great honor and pleasure to deal with Canadians, especially ‘Nancy‘, about our joint tradition when it comes to Red Poppies.

Then I saw this last night! Though I rarely if ever swear, having decided when I was 21 that I am going to stop swearing, troopers have nothing on me when I do decide to swear. The stream of invective that I let loose at Canada, even if I say it myself, was colorful. Now as some of you also know it doesn’t take much to get me ranting about Canada as a country — and I make the distinction between individual Canadians and the country.

To me, this stupid, stupid, White Poppy is a Q.E.D. example of why I make fun of Canada — a country that CAPS Internet bandwidth (and gives asylum to Tamil Tigers).

The Red Poppy tradition stems the inspired words of a Canadian — physician, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.

Yes, I fully understand that many Canadians, quite rightly, are outraged.

How can YOU … even if you are Canadian and have at least partial brain cell freeze from the never ending cold do this.

White = Surrender.

White = A dead body drained of all its blood.

You will not find anybody more committed to PEACE than me.

But supporting peace does not mean that you diss all the good folks that gave their life so that we would NOT be speaking damn German and driving bloody Audis!

It is symptomatic. This is what you get in country that thinks they have the RIGHT to cap Internet bandwidth.

If you haven’t worked it out by now, I am NOT amused.
