Hey Steffi...

The primary purpose of any military force is to break stuff and kill people... what part of that... do you not understand?

-- OTTAWA -- Canada's Afghanistan mission must dramatically scale back troop size and shift to training and other non-aggressive roles if it's to win Liberal support for an extension, says Leader Stephane Dion.
And he's not alone.

A warm welcome to readers of Canadian Cecilia... all three of you. Apparently, warm fuzzy-bunny 'CC' has her nose out of joint... yet again.

Anyway, let's take a look...
ar·my [ahr-mee]

1. the military forces of a nation, exclusive of the navy and in some countries the air force.
2. (in large military land forces) a unit consisting typically of two or more corps and a headquarters.
3. a large body of persons trained and armed for war
.
Now, pottymouth 'CC' seems to think a standing army is some sort of Christmas ornament... you know, nice and sparkly... but please don't touch. A nice accessory when you're having a parade... but what the hell are you doing giving them guns?!?
Anyway, when CC's not pissing all over the mother of a dead Canadian soldier... she's got way more important stuff to talk about.
Good grief.

UPDATE: The French step up
Nicolas Sarkozy, the first French president to visit Afghanistan, signalled that French troops would not pull out of the country any time soon. He told Mr. Karzai that France has a long term political and military interest in Afghanistan, Mr. Karzai's office said in a statement.

"We did not want to give the signal of a withdrawal, which would have been a detestable signal at a time when we see the ravages that terrorism can do to the world," Mr. Sarkozy said on France-Info radio.
And Australia's in as well...
"We will be, as I said before, in this country, Afghanistan, for the long haul, and it's important for us to be here in partnership with countries from NATO," he said. He said he would be encouraging other countries to continue or expand their commitment to Afghanistan.
Hey... better late than never
-- KABUL, Afghanistan -- Echoing pledges by the leaders of France and Australia, Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi emphasized his county's long-term commitment to Afghanistan in a meeting with President Hamid Karzai on Sunday, the presidential palace said.

Ha,

One poll showing the Conservatives slipping and he thinks he can start to talk tough again? We will see when the time comes if he can actually translate tough talk into any form of action. So far he hasn't shown anybody that there is anything worth yea-ing or nay-ing for.

Even the monkeys in New Delhi know when to fight. Maybe Jack and Dion (sorry, John Cougar Mellencamp) are going the wrong way on the evolutionary ladder?

And once again he gets help from the media:
Our PM, who happens to be an economist, states the obvious, that this economic upswing won't last. (I'm not an an economist...I knew that) So the media shames him for giving us a "lump of coal for Christmas"
But Steffi gets the cozy pose and the oh so gentle story.

The military exists to give jobs to Quebecers, fags, morons, and boot lickers. Only conservatives can clean up the military and make it live up to its real purpose, the defense of a nation and what it is all about. (real conservative)

I love the way you always seem surprised by these announcements from steffi and Taliban Jack.

So Steffi would like to scale back troops in Afhganistan and have the remainder do social work.
Great ! However those troops remaining will remain under the same threat of fire without the same amount of back up.
He then goes on to say we should send troops to other world hot spots.
Like maybe Somalia ,Darfur ,Lebanon, etc.
Where we would still be fighting the same Islamist heathens we are in Afhganistan.
Lets finish one job first Steffi,you muppet.

I see the gender challenged Cyntie has conscripted a female of sorts who on a previous post displayed his/her foot squeezed into a platform previously used as a snowboard...delicate creature that one.

Pimf
Afhganistan=Afghanistan

And about the French.
Thats great that they are in it for the long haul.
However,maybe the could change their rules of engagement.
As it stands now they basically hang around the compound and observe (in a non combative zone).
Sort of like the UN in Lebanon.

God damned godless liberal bastards. When will they ever fucking learn?

You are damn right that the Army is for killing! If there is no one to kill, then they aren't fucking trying hard enough. Why can't we just nuke the fucking bastards? Nuke the god damned liberals and whiny environmentalists too!
