So I'm spending the evening watching this movie about General Romeo Dallaire and his fateful United Nations mission in Rwanda that had him basically, under the orders of the U.N. oversee the slaughter of 800,000 Tutsi civilians. His Canadian and international peacekeeping troops, just 430 of them, were ordered only to shoot in self defense, thus couldn't intervene in the slaughter. His pleas for help went unheard.

A very sad and disturbing tale.

Watch this movie. It will make you wonder whatever happened to the humanity in the human race. And once again, I feel nothing but pride in our Canadian soldiers for what they have done and continue to do in the world.

By the way, the "devil" in this story was sentenced to life for genocide on Friday, Dec. 19, 2008.

I know the pride you must feel. Nothing stirs the heart of proud and patriotic Americans like the brave men and women that make up the mighty U.S. military.

Bless them all this season.
