Memo: Never speak the truth

“The rise of radical Native American organizations, such as the Mohawk Warrior Society, can be viewed as insurgencies with specific and limited aims,” it read. “Although they do not seek complete control of the federal government, they do seek particular political concessions in their relationship with national governments and control (either overt or covert) of political affairs at a local/reserve (‘First Nation') level, through the threat of, or use of, violence.”

Seems the author of a military manual on Counter-insurgency released to the military in 2005 touched a nerve. Now the government in a kneejerk reaction feels the need to be sorry about something, because it’s not like domestic radicals have ever existed in peace loving Canada and never carried out terrorist acts or occupied lands. Frankly the Warriors should pleased that they have had such an impact, to be named in this manual.
I can see in future where the government of the day will have to apologize to the honest and law abiding native people for not protecting them from radical and criminal groups who used legitimate First Nation issues to cover their activities.
