Two More Years

May 18, 2006 at 12:50 pm (Uncategorized)

  The Harper governement with the help of the broken Liberals have committed us to two more years in Afghanistan. There was no real debate on this, all was a done deal in just one day.

   I have heard back from some people on my postings concerning Canada`s role in Afghanistan, and I will agree with some of what they have said. Canada`s role has been as a peacekeeper many times and we should be proud of that, but this time I am not convinced that this is the case.  Capt. Nichola Goddard of Calgary was killed in combat yesterday in Afghanistan, not in peacekeeping.

  I still think that we should be bringing our soldiers home, and not extending their stay. The work that they are doing is noble work and something that they chose to do, but it is dangerous work. We are there to help George W fight his wars. What will be next for us, sending soldiers to Iraq, sure that is just peacekeeping as well, the war there finished three years ago.

  Bring the men and women of Canada back I say, we are getting conned here, this is not peacekeeping by any means.

Interesting article to Canada from a mom that lost a son in Iraq.
