If anything demonstrates the utter hopelessness and complete futility of the Canadian “mission” in Afghanistan, this latest incident, where 12 United Nations aid workers were killed (one even beheaded, apparently) as retribution for some crackpot preacher in Florida burning the Qur’an, surely does.
Maybe it’s time that the untold millions of dollars that will be flushed down the toilet of Afghanistan over the next three years of our “mission” in that primitive hellhole were instead invested in our own domestic needs; whether it be fixing roads and bridges or helping lift many of our own citizens out of poverty.
This is an issue where the Liberals have been sorely disappointing over the years since getting us into this insane clusterfuck in the first place. I know many Liberal supporters want to turn a blind eye to it, but it’s something that I believe every Liberal candidate needs to be confronted with. Why won’t they immediately pull the plug on this hopeless and utterly misguided “mission” in Afghanistan that is DOOMED TO FAILURE?
