Exactly why are good Canadian men and women fighting, being horribly injured and being killed for this government in Afghanistan please?
The story below is wrong in oh so many ways. But I am sniffing up the trail of one, as I understand it, much much worse than this even and of much more immediate concern to Canadians. Meanwhile, this from the Daily Mail:

An Afghan physiotherapist will be executed within three days for converting to Christianity.
Said Musa, 45, has been held for eight months in a Kabul prison were he claims he has been tortured and sexually abused by inmates and guards.
Mr Musa, who lost his left leg in a landmine explosion in the 1990s, has worked for the Red Cross for 15 years and helps to treat fellow amputees.Execution: Christians pray during a mass at a church in Kabul (file picture). Said Musa is facing execution unless he converts back to Islam
He was arrested in May last year as he attempted to seek asylum at the German embassy following a crackdown on Christians within Afghanistan.
He claims he was visited by a judge who told him he would be hanged within days unless he converted back to Islam.
But he remains defiant and said he would be willing to die for his faith.
He told the Sunday Times: ‘My body is theirs to do what they want with.
‘Only God can decide if my spirit goes to hell.’
Defence lawyers have refused to represent him, while others have dropped the case after receiving death threats.
Mr Musa was arrested after a TV station showed western men baptising Afghans during secret ceremonies.

The red cross, abandoning its own employee because he is Christian in Afghanistan. Where is the moral high ground now Red Cross? The time for Canada to stop wasting one more penny or drop of blood in that Taliban Vs. Kharazai, Tweedle Dee Vs. Tweedle Dumb nightmare may be here. I suggest it might be more prudent to defend ourselves from this ideology from infecting us rather than fight to preserve it half way around the world. The barbarians are no longer at the gates. They are building prayer rooms in our schools. And we are paying for them.
