The Taliban 'Wins' If Canadians Don't Support Our Troops : Peter MacKay
Another idiotic speech from another idiotic Conservative Cabinet Minister. Where do these jokers come up with this schlock? Here are some snippets of a speech delivered by Canada's Defence Minister, Peter MacKay:
"Waning support for the mission in Afghanistan is a weapon in the hands of the Taliban."
"The Taliban are very intelligent - they read newspapers, they go on the Internet."
"When they see Canadian resolve weaken, that's when they up their effort,"
"The younger generation of Canadians aren't used to seeing flag-draped coffins, and perhaps don't understand sacrifice the way older Canadians do."
NOTE: Recent polls have found that:
- 49% of Canadians consider the military operation in Afghanistan to be futile
- 22% of Canadians considered the NATO mission a success
- 29% weren't sure
You MUST Support The Troops!!
