I'm gonna go out on a limb here...

...and guess that Bob and Iggy are... despite the pretty words... gonna have a hard time settling for a "yes"...

“Look, I do note that the Liberal party, Mr. Ignatieff, Mr. Rae have indicated for the past several months that they favour a training mission,” he said. “If they have any specific ideas they want to share, I’m not resistant to having debates on that matter in the House of Commons."

UPDATE: It doesn't matter what you say...

...we're the NDP... we have to scream and stamp our feet...
A deal between the Conservatives and Liberals allows Stephen Harper to break his promise and extend the mission in Afghanistan without approval from Parliament, New Democrats charged Friday.

That’s really deplorable,” NDP foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar said.
Hang on a sec... what do the Dippers actually want?
The NDP supports the option of supporting transitional justice, aid, development and governance, which Mr. Dewar says would cost about $500-million over three years.
Geez, I'm just not seein' the big hairy-ball problem here.

Maybe Stephen Harper IS a diabolical chess-master.

LAST WORD: Or... using Occam's political razor...
Michael Ignatieff has proven to be the Wile E. Coyote of political strategy when it comes to boxing in Stephen Harper – forever being burnt to a crisp atop his own pile of Acme Corporation dynamite.
