Absolutely NOT to make fun of you, but your request for an editor sounds exactly like someone saying to a waiter ... "Check, please".

I found this puzzle very easy to follow logistically and informative to boot. Rarely do I get a combination of the two. Really enjoyed it - thanks a bunch

Our log showed that you had not finished this WP so I reset it for you...but this is not the proper place to make that request. Next time please put in a support ticket (click on HELP at the top or bottom of any page).

Thanks for the comments

Sent the army into Montreal in nineteen seventy - Pierre Elliot Trudeau
Ordered the Enola Gay to drop the bomb in nineteen forty five - Harry S.Truman
Signed the Munich Agreement to appease Hitler in nineteen thirty eight - Neville Chamberlain
Imposed state of emergency in nineteen seventy one during war with Pakistan - Indira Ghandi
In nineteen thirty three made all USA gold property of the Federal Reserve - FDR
Suspended the constitution of Pakistan twice - Pervez Musharraf
Invaded Kuwait in nineteen ninety - Saddam Hussein
Abolished the multi party democracy of Iran in nineteen seventy five - Shah of Iran
Authorized use of chemical weapons against China in nineteen thirty eight - Emperor Hirohito
Invaded Poland in nineteen thirty eight - Adolf Hitler


This puzzle required a great deal editing as the character number dropped the day after I submitted it. Cutting it down to 75 was a strain on my brain trying to keep it simple, short and have it make sense. I'll definitely do another like this later, require much more beer first!

Well, of course you're right,Bradd. I actually put '39 in the WP, but I've apparently been celebrating Canada Day too hard to read my own writing and type at the same time.

I remember Trudeau sending in the army in 1970. My parents wouldn't let me outside for days. Great puzzle, fun and informative.

I enjoy historical puzzles- we need to remember history- lest we might be doomed to repeating it.

As an aside to Donleigh's comments- Less characters can make it harder to wordsmith articulate puzzles.

This was well done. I learned some new facts.

Yes Hadyn....
Actually, I arrived in Canada in 1967 (3 years before)
and we landed in La Belle Province
Even at that time - there were lots of armed police all
around the area.
As we came from England.......
the sight of guns surprised the heck out of us!!!!
Thought we'd got off the boat at the wrong stop....
in TEXAS !!!!

Great Puzzle Donleigh....
I too love History
Not because we learn anything from it
but just because its like a Neverending
