An excerpt from the above video follows:

_________________)

In the last six years, just under President Obama – who by the way won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize – the United States has dropped bombs on… seven different predominantly Muslim countries, Syria is now the seventh, in addition to a Muslim minority in the Philippines…

What isn’t true is that the foreign policy of Canada is peaceful… Canada is a steadfast ally and partner of the United States in all kinds of militarism and violence, years of invasion and occupation in Afghanistan, a bombing campaign of Libya that left that country in utter and complete shambles and now what the Canadian Press itself is calling a new war in Iraq which is already spilled over into Syria… You cannot be a country that lets your government engage in militarism and violence and that kind of radicalism and aggression in multiple countries around the world year after year after year and simultaneously have the expectation that there will never be any violence brought back to the country perpetrating them.

I have to thank Rabble for the above. I first found the video there.
