Canada's New Top General's Optimism Borders On Stupidity

JUNE was the deadliest month for US troops in Afghanistan since the war there began in late 2001. [...] The Pentagon's first congressionally mandated report on Afghanistan last week predicted increased violence throughout this year.

But Canada's new top military leader, General Walter Natynczyk, doesn't agree with the Pentagon report. He has no facts or report of his own to challenge the Americans, only his good old fashioned, Canadian optimism to guide him in the war zone!

What is it with our senior Canadian Generals? Do they think that putting their best 'Don Cherry' bravado forward is going to cut it with the public? (Well ... actually it does work with the Canadian public) ... but not with this blogger!

General Natynczyk is starting off on the wrong foot by not being honest with Canadians. I was very critical of General Hillier for doing the same and I was hoping that our new chief military leader would be more pragmatic; more honest with Canadians. I guess not.

His optimism (in light of recent Pentagon assessments) is stupid!
