Renegade, what essentialy is being said is that, the poor soldier is conditioned to blieve what the government wnats him to believe. We believe that Canada is a just nation because we are conditioned to. It may or may not be the case that it ACTUALLY is, just like many young men in the middle east are conditioned to believe that it is just to kill the infidel. I may not respect the cause that the young mugahadeen died for, but I certainly respect his commitment and courage, just like I respect the courage of the US marine who killed him. War brings out the best and worst in people, and, though we may not find the cause just, it is certainly reasonable to admire the human spirit.
