And the Afghanistan debacle continues...

I intend to continue discussing the Afghan mission on the blog, even though the government likely will not and will shluff off questions to the excuse that when the Manley panel reports, then we'll have a debate. Just like Bush did with the Baker panel in the U.S. Then he completely frickin' ignored their work.

Today's news:
Seven people were killed and 30 injured Saturday after a suicide bomber walked into a crowded market in southern Afghanistan and blew himself up, CBC News has learned.

The man set off the blast in the town of Spin Boldak near the border with Pakistan.

The injured were being flown to Kandahar Airfield for treatment, Canadian military officials said.

There are reports that eight Afghan border police officers were among the injured. Twenty-two civilians, including an eight-year-old child, were also hurt in the blast.
Militarily, you cannot prevent this type of chaos....
