Canada is marking the end of its participation in the Afghanistan war Tuesday as the last soldiers returned home from a mission that spanned 12 years.


Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Governor General David Johnston and senior military brass gathered at the Ottawa airport to welcome home 84 Canadian Armed Forces members. Mr. Harper said May 9 would be designated by Royal Proclamation a day of commemoration of the end of the Afghan mission.

""You have seen the suffering of a population under the tyranny of deliberate violence, enforced poverty and perverse fanaticism," Johnston said. ""


Brave man that. Harper is standing only two places to Johnson's left.

Thank God indeed or we'd have been tied up and over extended in Iraq too. Why lose two wars when one is plenty?
