RE: Red Eye With Greg Gutfeld Mocks Canadian Military

It is in bad taste, and it is offensive. Believe it or not, we in the lower 48 do get news about Canada's contributions in Afghaniastan, and we wince when the news announces Canadian casualties. No branch of the Canadian military deserves to be mocked.

Except the Canadian Navy.
