I am a Canadian and a veteran who still works with the Cdn Army. Becasue of 9/11 our forces are shoulder-to-shoulder with our American friends in Afganistan. Many Canadians also died on 9/11. I cannot comment on the Iraq fight because we are not involved. However, I was so impressed with the American resolve immediately after 9/11 and I only hope it continues - any weakness will be costly!
Back to cruising, I am retiring in two months (Yes!) and looking forward to 4 B2B cruises on the Carnival Glory. Cheers.....Jim
