POLITICS AS USUAL: A BEACON OF LIGHT IN AN OTHERWISE DARK LAND...
"Afghanistan is a 20-year venture," Maj.-Gen. Andrew Leslie told the annual Couchiching Summer Conference yesterday.
Leslie warned that the war-torn country is going to need a long-term commitment from Canada to help it "break out of the cycle of warlords and tribalism."
And the results will be worth the cost, both in blood and time, he promised attendees of the conference in Orillia, on the shore of Lake Couchiching.
"There are things worth fighting for. There are things worth dying for. There are things worth killing for," Leslie told the conference.
Its nice to see ONE branch of government and ONE Canadian willing to speak truthfully, directly, and with the same grit and determination that used to define this nation many years ago.
Its so rare these days that I posted on it.
How sad is that?
P.S. Before she even opens up her mouth--I don't give a damn what Carolyn Parrish has to say.
