Re: Canadian comes home from Guantanamo

You still have not answered the question. You can't war terrorism as it is an idea. You can war terrorists, countries that support such etc. However to do so and legally call it a war (by a state) requires formal declarations.

Police and security actions notwithstanding. Canada has never declared war on any of the country supporting the terrorists.

It can also be argued he committed an act of treason by siding with the enemy...

He killed an American soldier. Canada was not at war with the USA...

Can you not read... I said the war was against the Al Qaeda.... You can call it policing action if you wish but for all intents and purposes it was combat, it was war...

War has very specific meaning within the Canadian constitution and must be formally declared by the Government of Canada. Since this did not happen. Your statement that Canada declared war on is false.

Now, if you want to argue that section 46(1)(c) applies based on "whether or not a state of war exists between Canada and the country whose forces they are" go ahead; but realize that Al Qaeda is not a country and even this section may not apply.

Jean Chrétien Approved the participation with UN Action. That is how it works.

Resolution 1386 (2001) of 20 December - authorizes the deployment for six months of an International Security Force For Afghanistan.
