Fighting for change

For anyone questioning whether our troops should be in Afghanistan, this is part of the crazy-quilt of stone-age injustice, that Canadians and other NATO soldiers are trying to make right.

The story is slightly fuzzy but the attacks started four or five months ago and stopped two months ago.

They were likely in reprisal for some slight from 50 years ago and the people living in this remote area, on the edge of the vast Registan desert about 120 kilometres south of Kandahar city, seemed to accept the inevitability of what happened.
Over to you... Mr. Layton.
