Today Gaddafi's warnings to the Tunisians is coming back to haunt the world. Sons may not come home alive. This goes for men, women and children too. It is not the government killing the civilians, it is the insurgents, real insurgents. Unlike Afghanistan where the USA, British and Canadians used the term insurgents to describe the citizens of Afghanistan defending their own country, in Libya we see a full invasion force of insurgents. Canada is a key member state in this action of regime change.
It has become apparent too that Canada has armed these rebel soldiers. We have made numerous contacts with all Canadian political parties, except the Greens, since Tuesday, August 9, 2011, in attempting to ascertain the location of 2500 C7 assault rifles and 7 million rounds of ammunition returned to Canadian hands in Afghanistan. We have not had one single response from any party that addresses the substance of the question. Here is a copy of the emails sent to the Department of National Defence, the NDP and Liberal DND critics as well as Foreign Affairs.

On Tuesday August 9th we requested a response regarding the location of the 2500 Canadian made C7 Colt rifles and the remaining portion of the 7 million rounds of ammunition sent to Afghanistan in 2008 for their police and military services. These rifles were returned to Canadian hands in June of this year. This should be a fairly simple question to answer.
I ask again and copy the text of the previous emails.

Dear Sirs, Ma'am of the DND
We sent this question to both DND and the Foreign Affairs on Tuesday of last week.
We were wondering if we were going to receive a direct reply.
Below is the text of the email.
Thank you for your attention.

I was wondering if you could look into something for me.
In about December of 2007 or early 2008 Canada sent 2500 C7 rifles to Afghanistan to assist in training their army.
In June this year they were apparently returned.
Maj. Andre Salloum is quoted as stating " the decision was made to recover the C-7 weapons and return them to Canada for disposal."
This is an expensive exercise, shipping these weapons half way around the world.
My question is, (or rather my suspicion is), were they were shipped to Libya for the rebel forces. This would be inline with Canada's support for the Rebels.
If they were not shipped there, then where are these rifles now?
Thanks for your attention to this.
Today the British Prime Minister referred to the action in Libya. He stated it was different than the action in Iraq. He stated the action in Iraq was illegal where this was right and legal.
