What a terrible week in the Afgan war

Canadian soldiers are dying both in Afghanistan and at home.

Canadian soldiers could have made a terrible mistake.


The Canadian government could have broken
international law and known all about it.

The Taliban is not only sticking around but they appear to be getting
stronger and more dug in.

One of the key allies in the Afghan war could be
knocked out of the war or at the very least be too distracted to be of much use.

The countries that should be leading the efforts in Afghanistan seem to want to do this on
the cheap, which of course, never works.

Finally, the probable
deadline for the end of the mission is fast approaching.

I have always been a supporter of the Afghan mission. I believe that Canada can do good work there. Unfortunately, the prosecution of the mission has gone off the rails, as this week demonstrates, and unless it gets back on track it will fail.

Let it fail. It's been derailed since the first year.

It's like watching a train accident in slow motion. Unfortunately that train is full of Canadian soldiers and Afghan civilians.
