Before Taliban Jack starts screaming...

About the latest casualties in Afghanistan... consider this.

Every year in Canada... we lose the same number of children to drowning... as the total number of battle casualties to date, since 2001.

Each year an average of 58 children drown and at least 140 others are hospitalized after being saved from drowning in Canada.

Drowning is the second cause of traumatic death in Canadian children under 14.
But that won't stop Jack and his mindless leftbot horde from making political hay out of the deaths of these brave soldiers.

Why is that?

PERSPECTIVE: It's dangerous here too

No good deed...
"Improvements in medical care since the Taliban fell five years ago have led to a marked decrease in Afghanistan's infant mortality rates - 40,000 fewer infant deaths a year."

50 deaths is a bad summer long weekend highway death count in Canada.

1n 2006 there were 55 young hoodlums killed by illegal handguns in Toronto.

Perspective is everything.

typical mindless leftbot reasoning.

Although it is tough to compare numbers and not appear callous, one might argue that some deaths are worth the sacrafice, including some children killed in a bombing raid by the US this week. This when you consider the following:

40,000 is a lot of infant lives saved. Every year!

yeah. sure. then you and your leftoid dweebsters would accuse the Gov't. of selling it all to the 'Murkins, right?

think that the MasterRace of Liberals, after their highly touted three zillion years in power as canada's one and only Natural governing Party, could have kept up with funding the Red Cross Swimming Programs, the RLSS programs, boating programs, power squadron programs?

Oh, no. sorry. they were too busy diddling the taxpayer vaults. NOW, I gets it.
