Damian from The Torch put up a great piece concerning public opinion on Afghanistan– sorry, make that public opinion in Afghanistan, and proceeds to compare and contrast it with the voice on the street in Canada.
Bottom line is that a large number of Afghans– famously intolerant of foreigners in their midst– appear to be happy with the way things are going, and are glad the Canadians and other forces are there.
Good reading, and the points made are valid south of the border too.
Who was it that said “Never take counsel of your fears”– George Washington? He’s right. And he might well have added, “And while you’re at it, don’t listen to the naysayers either.”
