Only ONE Political Party Had It Right On Afghanistan ... (and it wasn't the Liberals, Greens or Conservatives)!

"There has got to be a new path" for the West in Afghanistan because "clearly things aren't working," Layton said, citing the booming heroin trade, increasing civilian and military casualties and the inability of Western forces to control large parts of the country.

The NDP backs negotiations and increased UN involvement, Layton said. If elected, "we would launch a diplomatic offensive" after bringing Canada's 2,500 soldiers home."

Hello. My name is Edgar and I'm an editor at OpposingViews.com, the debate website. Since we both cover the Middle East, I thought I'd drop you a note. I would've e-mailed you but I couldn't find an address.
See, we're currently having a discussion about whether or not democracy can thrive in the Middle East. You can see it here:
Although vetted experts are the ones doing the debating, anyone can contribute by choosing a side and posting comments about the experts' arguments.
