November 11, 2007

My grandfather, Arthur Earl Kitson, survived about 3 years in the trenches in World War I, serving with the Canadian Signal Corps. When the Armistice was declared, he spend a further 24 hours in a shell hole, refusing to come out, on the grounds that he had survived the war up until then, and he didn't want to get killed by some lunatic when the war was over. My grandfather was a sane man. I'm quite sure he would have regarded Canada's Afghan involvement as lunacy.

It's time to ask the hard and obvious questions.

1. What, exactly, is Canada doing in Afghanistan?

2. What is the legal justification for NATO's presence in Afghanistan?

3. What, exactly, is NATO's plan?

4. Who is paying for NATO's plan?
