New exhibit spans five conflicts
by Stephen J. Thorne
Gallery 4: From the Cold War to the Present, which opened
on Sept. 21 at the Canadian War Museum, spans five conflicts, reflecting Canada’s shifting priorities from its role as a traditional UN peacekeeper and dutiful NATO guardsman to peacemaker and war-fighter in the Persian Gulf, Somalia and Afghanistan, and referee, of some futility, to the
horrors of ethnic cleansing in the Balkans and Rwanda.
