Future Prodigy said:... I do value humanitarian aid and development work, but I am not really trying to look at the military's role through that avenue. I am more concerned with the above - this being the CF's duty to the international community in protecting human rights and alleviating human suffering, and also forcefully intervening in failed states.
Ah! Another twist. All members of Canadian society fall under the Laws of Canada which we all know have articles protecting Human Rights. We are also, for the most part, Christian and "Samaritans" or Charitable towards those who are suffering. It is part of our 'Western' and more particularly Canadian upbringing. Canada's Military are bound by the Laws of Canada, International Laws, and the Laws of whatever nation they may set foot in. Also, members of the CF do not drop their Religious, Ethnic, or Moral values just because they join the CF.
I hope that helps.
