This aritcle is Swedish, but if you substitute Canada for Sweden, it applies to us as well. As the US withdraws, Canada is backfilling. Our kids will be killed and maimed for Bush's bad policy.

Afghanistan is a tar-baby. It's been the graveyard of foreign armies for two millenia. If it was possible to carry out an occupation successfully, the british, Russians, or americans would already have succeeded at the task.

Canada (or sweden) is insane for piling into this situation.

Agreed. My bet is that we will get dragged into Iraq under the same lies as with Afghanistan, and for the same reason: so that Bush can push on with more "terrorist" targets.
