Today is the day we remember and honour those who have fallen in wars around the world.  It marks the anniversary of the end of the First World War, which officially ended at 11am 11 Nov, 1918.

Honouring those who have died in wars, past and present, is a vital part of our civilization.  Whether you agree with the reasons for fighting a particular war or not is irrelevant - this is a day for respect not politics.

Well said. Today is Veteran's Day over here as well. Time to put aside the political debate and remember the true heroes who sacrificed so much upon the alter of freedom. Today is a day to honor those men and women who gave their lifes in defense of their countries and beliefs.

Here, here RC. Makes me sick to my stomach radical shit-stirrer's want to hi-jack this day for their own perverted political ends. I am glad they've been denied the publicity they sought - finally, our government has done something decent that virtually EVERY sane person agrees with.
