If there are any Canadians left who think that our country is engaged in a peacekeeping or “reconstruction” mission in Afghanistan, I hope they watched CBC’s The National tonight. If not, or if you’re just interested in understanding what our troops are facing there, check out Scott Kesterson’s documentary At War. You can watch video of Kesterson At War at the CBC website and view photographs taken by Canadian Armed Forces personnel in Afghanistan. Kesterson was embedded with the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry for fifteen months.
If we don’t think we’re at war in Afghanistan, we should think again. If Canadians don’t support a war with Afghanistan, we shouldn’t be there.
