I like this headline from Reuters Poll shows Canadians oppose Afghanistan mission which is far stronger than this whimpy one from CTV
Most Cdns. uneasy about Afghan mission: poll
America's invasion of Afghanistan was a detour on the way to Iraq. It was an after thought, as quick as they got in they got out. Rolling on to Bhagdad their real objective, cause Georgie Porgie was gonna kick some Saddam ass for threatening his daddy.
But in spite of Canadian opposition to our continued involvement in Afghanistan, the Harpocrite government in Ottawa is going to continue to put our troops in harms way. Without any democratic debate in the Parliment. Just doing what the Liberals did. Feds pledge Afghan commitment, NORAD expansion
And why are we doing this, Gordon O'Connor Defense Industry Lobbyist and Minister of Defense tells his Defense Industry pals yesterday;
Two weeks ago, I attended my first NATO Ministerial Meeting. I told my Alliance counterparts that Canada remains committed to NATO and that we'll be a strong and engaged partner, particularly in Afghanistan.
We've never been a nation that shies away from its responsibilities. We will shoulder the burden. We will stay the course in Afghanistan.
Together with troops from other countries, the Canadian Forces are making a real impact in Afghanistan. All over the country, buildings are being rebuilt. Refugees are returning home. Marketplaces are bustling. And little girls once again attend schools.Yep little girls get to go to school in newly liberated Afghanistan still dressed like this.
