Reader comment on item: The Khadrs, Canada's First Family of Terrorism, in the News
in response to reader comment: Omar Khadr

Submitted by Mark (United Arab Emirates), Mar 8, 2006 at 04:35

You mean to tell me you were never a 15 year old teenager? 15 year olds are old enough to think to fight and even to have political views. The juvenile provisions in crimnal law are an aberration and a bug in what is now a creaky criminal code..

You throw grenades and kill soldiers, then expect to be treated as a POW..

As for the Khadr family. This is one of the saddest stories I have ever read. I was born in Alberta. But I have lived outside the country since 1970..The values of the true north strong and free seem to have been totally subverted and hijacked.. I don't recognise this country you call Canada..

This is so sad.
