Anyone Who EVER Called Layton 'Taliban Jack' CAN KISS MY ASS!!

After years of refusing to negotiate with insurgents, Canadian forces in Kandahar put word out they want to talk to the Taliban:

KHENJAKAK, AFGHANISTAN — "Canadian troops are reaching out to the Taliban for the first time, military and diplomatic officials say, as Canada softens its ban on speaking with the insurgents.

After years of rejecting any contact with the insurgents, Canadian officials say those involved with the mission are now rethinking the policy in hopes of helping peace efforts led by the Afghan government.

The Canadian work on political solutions follows two separate tracks: tactical discussions at a local level in Kandahar, and strategic talks through the Kabul government and its allies. Neither type of negotiation appears to have made progress so far, though efforts are still in the early stages."

Globe & Mail

At the same time, Gates and the Pentagon are sending out feelers about bringing the Canadian, British and Dutch forces under direct, American command. In effect they want more fighting and aggressive campaigns to eradicate the poppy crops. What a clusterfuck!

I am sure that Harper will be tripping over himself to run and sign up! What an idiotic concept the US has.
