Please Pull Out!

Wow, the title sounds a bit perverted. Perverts… Hehe, it’s been a long time since I’ve been into the news and recently I read the following article:

Woohoo! Go Ignatieff! Finally a Liberal leader who is adamant enough to pull out of Afghanistan once and for all! I mean seriously, it’s America’s mess, America should clean it up. Why do we immediately have to rush in for 8 years? Sure, yes, we are Canada. We are the world’s helpers, but we are not the world’s babysitters.  At the moment many Canadian soldiers are deployed there and many of them are being sent home in a coffin. We should have realized this 3 years ago and pulled our troops out, yet we did not. I blame the Conservatives 🙂

We can’t stay there anymore. Before, the economy was booming. Now, the economy is on the brink of collapsing. Canada cannot fund soldiers overseas and attempt to stimulate the economy at the same time. Just because a new president sits in the White House, does not mean we cater to him and his predecessors. Canadians want Canadian interests served, and things like Kyoto and pulling out of Afghanistan is in Canadian interest.
