    Thumbs up Canada pulling out troops from Afghanistan

    Its not official yet,NDP with Liberals merged against conservatives and they are gonna pull them out.I was listening speech in the house of commons and they received huge applaus.They said Us empire should deal with their own lies and war on terrorism because they are the ones who started it and killed thousands of innocent people ...next applaus.

    Wondering how it will end up but i hope they will pull them out,we are peace keepers not police.

    Afghanistan is the one place that the world needs to work together to clean up.

    The brits in 1919, The Soviets in 1979 again proved that Afganistan is an impossible battle, The Americans proved it when they left Canada there and went off to Iraq.
    It has been proven time and time again that a armed conventional force is not going to succeed in Afganistan.
    It is time for Canada to pull out, we shouldn't have been there in the first place.

    Humm..so far I haven't seen anyone tell you,your wrong.

    I can say with confidence that the "you guys" stuff is flat out wrong. It's a generalization. It's like saying.....Canadians are French. That too isn't a correct statement.

    Back to Afghanistan. Yep, the States needs more soldiers there. From all over the world. The taliban were/are the biggest supporters of terrorism in the world. The opium crop is the biggest in years and taming that country would be good for the world.

    Bush won,it means you guys voted for him,most of the country ...sorry if i offended anyone but its true isnt it?Correct me if im wrong.You are never gonna tame that country,its just bushes and mountains with caves,Russians couldnt do it,and they had there 100 times more power then what Nato have over there right now.If i remember right russians had there over half a million soldiers but i could be wrong.

    Impossible to battle, hardly. It is an easy drive into downtown Kabul. Occupation is a whole different story. Without a true butchering, it is very difficult to maintain control over another country, especially in Asia.

    The Brits had a totally different approach.

    if someone didnt say it... i was gonna... whats with the YOU ****?
    I didnt do ANYTHING that YOU just mentioned... You are always acusing me or anyone else on this forum that is American that we did something... I for one do not have the funds to go to war with someone... if i did i would probably think of something better to do with it...
    i was actually going to say this to you in some other post YOU posted, but got distracted...

    dude, get a grip!
