#2 My source says he's dead.

There is another Canadian soldier that died: Master Cpl. Timothy Wilson of Grande Prairie, Alta., died early Sunday morning, Canadian military officials told a news conference at the main Canadian base in Kandahar. ...also in Landstuhl Germany.

#4 Thanks Rafael.

Gumbad Pashtuns huum,

remember the old Pashtun Taqiyya [lie]: when asked why do the Pashtuns give shelter and bread to the AQ and other terrorists:

We have to accept anyone including strangers it is our ancient Muslim tradition and duty. And you must respect our culture and custom.

fuck you forever.

#5 I think we err in not MOABing a village after an incident like this, pour l'encouragement autres.

#7 Thank you for this post, Rafael. And also for what I've learnt from you over the years here. And finally, thanks to your countrymen who do very well considering their government had been cutting the legs out from under them so long as Labour was in power.

#8 Despite the site boss and owner's source, I still somehow hope he's alive (cf. HC), and will make it without heavy sequels.. anyway, this is treachery at its worst, and the "friendly" villagers are loathsome here. The muslim way of war. Lesson learned, I truly hope.

#9 You cannot fight wars PC. You need to take the fight to the enemy and go on the offensive. That means denying him sanctuary in the NWFP. Al Q and what's left of the Taliban need some more of what the other Jihadis got a while ago at their meeting venue. Being jacked around by Pakistan is costing the US and loyal allies in Afghanistan like the Canadians good people.

I absolutely detest this PC crap. Drive the jihadis in the NWFP and other places across the border out of their sanctuaries or eliminate them. We have the air power to totally disrupt their operations. We need the will.
