Kandahar 2

March 30, 2006 at 9:16 am (Uncategorized)

  Another Canadian soldier died in Kandahar a few days ago. It was not even a major news story in Canada. It is sad that an event like this barely makes the headlines.
  I wrote about Kandahar about a month ago and will try not to repeat myself too much here. What I would still like to understand in all this is, why are we there. People will argue that is for peacekeeping purposes. It seems to be more than that.
  To me, it seems more like a war, a war with the Taliban. The Taliban never got entirely eradicated it seems. They are alive and kicking , and getting into full swing this spring it seems.
  As I stated on the last Kandahar post, we should get the heck out of there, before more soldiers are killed or injured.
