I mentioned the other day how The Torch insists that the Afghans really, really want us there based on the comments of four of them. Well today it turns out that 500 of them went out into the streets and told us to go home. They were shouting nice things like “death to Canada” in outrage over some local religious leaders being killed.
Are we supposed to believe that all these people in the street are all hardcore Taliban? Or maybe they are mad about growing civilian casualties? Of course the pro-war types in this country will insist that this is why we need to stay – they hate us, we have to win them over. Sigh.
