FACT: The Khadr family moved to Jalalabad, Afghanistan in 1996 and were already living in the Karte Parwan neighbourhood of Kabul, Afghanistan since 1999 as they were still running their relief charity for Afghan orphans. Their home in Afghanistan was targeted and bombed during the invasion by US forces.
FACT: was he not part of an invading force? He was not afghani yet fighting against the government.
FACT: Afghanistan was not his country
Fact: Omar Khadr is the Canadian born child of Egyptian and Palestinian parents
What is incorrect about anything the people you quoted said?
What point do you have? The guy is a Canadian in a foreign land fighting against that foreign country's government....a terrorist by all standards.

"Invading force" of what? The Afgan CIVIL War ended in 1996, and the Khadr moved his family there to help the Afghan orhans displaced by the war. The is absolutely ZERO evidence that any members of the Khadr family participated in any military action during the internal civil war that lasted from 1992 to 1996. And there is also no evidence that he was fighting against the Taliban government that ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001.

The Khadrs lived and worked in Afghanistan for five years before the US came and bombed their home. How is that not their country if they were living there at the time and almost half of Omar's life?
Fact: Omar Khadr is the Canadian born child of Egyptian and Palestinian parents
So? My asian parents weren't born in Canada, but should the US ever invade Canada, you can bet they'll do everything to fight back. Same with my British-born wife. Fact is, the US target bombed their Afghan home and they have every reason to fight back.

Buggy166 said that Omar Khadr had every right to resist an US invasion of Afghanistan as they BOMBED his home. And there is ZERO evidence that he was fighting against the Taliban (or anyone at all) that controlled Kabul and Afghanistan, so your claim that he was a terrorist is false.

The point? The US bombed his home in Kabul and then attacked the residential compound he was staying at with Blackhawks firing cannons and rockets and Warthogs indiscrimately dropping 500lb bombs. There was absolutely no evidence of any armed aggression from Omar Khadr up to this point in time. If Florida can have a "Stand-your-Ground" law, Omar had absolutely every right to defend himself from an unprovoked U.S. attack on him.

Hasn't the family already admitted many times that they support and are members of al-Qaeda? http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/we-are-an ... n-1.472778

Also, the Taliban weren't the recognized government of Afghanistan in 1996 and the civil war continued after 1996. The Taliban were importing fighters (al-Qaeda) from Pakistan (like the Khadrs) to try to gain complete control over Afghanistan.

American soldiers in Afghanistan aren't occupiers, it's their home now since they've been there for a few years Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy

The taliban were foreign invaders. Most of them were Pakistani soldiers who came to fight the other political parties that were made up of native Afghans and the other foreign parties from Iran and so forth. There's a reason Bin Laden fled to Pakistan and they were so willing to hide him, and that's because the Taliban was just an arm of the Pakistani government. Khadr was just another outsider there to oppress the people of that country.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Or in Khadrs' case, Palestinian or Egyptian and Omar, Canadian.
Bingo.....all of his disciples forget that "Khadr was just another outsider "

I am sure she will take it to the Supreme Court and they will rule that it is against her Charter Rights to see her brother and Canada should compensate. If she gets this through before Trudeau is punted out, she too will win the lottery :)
