US And Britain Moving Troops From Iraq To Afganistan While Harper Blows 'Smiley Face' Smoke Up Our Butts!

"Both the United States and Britain are hoping to reduce their military commitment in Iraq to focus on Afghanistan.

The US is considering cutting American troop numbers to below 120,000, compared with 170,000 last year. Up to three combat brigades could be withdrawn in September.

Britain is also looking to cut troop numbers by almost a half in Iraq, from 4,000 to about 2,500, although not until next year. This would give the Government the option of deploying more units to Helmand province, where the Taleban has intensified its operations, using suicide attacks, roadside bombs and mines.

More American and British troops are now dying in Afghanistan than in Iraq, and with both countries committed to supporting the Kabul Government, the availability of additional troops to fight the Taleban is becoming an increasingly pressing issue."

Times Online

Canada's military and political masters are telling Canadians that all is well in Afghanistan - YEAH .. WE ARE WINNING! That good old fashioned Canadian 'can do' attitude is winning the day in Afghanistan!

Meanwhile, the United States and Britain are preparing to move troops from Iraq to the much more dangerous war zone in Afghanistan.

Something is VERY wrong with the message that Canadians are getting from our Conservative government.
