What Afstan is all about

Two passionate posts:

1) Terry Glavin:
Actually-Existing Amnesia.
2) Paul at Celestial Junk:
Putting Afghanistan Into Perspective
One crappy political class in this country.

Update: Jim Travers of the Toronto Star seems to think Canada should largely give up on the Afghans in terms of development too:
Needed here are parallel projects. One would replace distant Afghanistan with neighbour Haiti at the centre of Canadian foreign and aid policy...
Ain't that stinkin' warm, fuzzy--and moral? Not that the government seem to be paying much attention to the future of the development side of things at Kandahar.

Afghanistan is revenge for 9/11.

The rest has developed from that.

The Taliban is not a threat to Canada.
