But Germany isn't....

'Conservative Whip Jay Hill spoke of a recent dinner he and his wife had with Afghanistan's ambassador to Canada, who was interrupted by a phone call.

"I could see he was upset," said Mr. Hill, adding that he asked why. "Two young girls were murdered on the roadside while walking home from school. What was their crime? Their crime was that they wanted an education. ...

"To me, the discussion that night very clearly exemplified why we are there."'
