Not Just Taliban Attacking Canadians in Afghanistan!


Senior NATO Military Command is making it very clear that there are groups other than the Taliban attacking and engaging with Canadian forces in Afghanistan. Fighting is also attributed to opium drug cartels, followers of various regional war lords as well as the remnants of other jihadist groups.

It is far too simplistic to believe that the Taliban is the sole enemy that Canadian forces are encountering and dealing with in this war torn region.

For Canadians to make an informed decision on our ongoing role in that nation, we simply must get the facts and incorporate them into our thinking. We can not risk operating on mere emotion and rhetoric when deciding what our future obligations should be.
