Canada's army is at least 3,000 soldiers short of meeting the nation's military commitments in Afghanistan and needs a serious boost in manpower, a commander in the Canadian Forces says.
Common descency that you don't bomb a country to crap then run away and leave them in anarchy and misery is why we are still there
NATO is why we went in.

I mean we could, but then they would come after us soon enough. And I wouldn't blame them. If you bombed my house, all the power stations and water pumps around..I'd probably go after you myself.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Because we sat in NATO for all those years. When the piper comes a calling its time to pay up. If we don't think she should have to honour this agreement, we should have left before we were called upon.
We are likewise part of NORAD, If we don't want to risk being drawn into a conflict there we should leave now, not when we are called upon. You can't sit in a defensive alliance demanding they protect you should you be attacked, then leave when someone else is attacked and its your turn to help defend them (whether or not they need your help, this isn't a charity, they defend you and you defend them)

keep talking and no one will figure out who's been in a fog about what, as in Eaglesmack wasn't the only one to fall for Zzarchov's smokescreen.
We are in Afghanistan because NATO called for us to go to war versus Afghanistan...
I can understand your believing years of membership somehow obliges us to lockstep with the group even though the mandate's been changed. Really. I do. There's one born every minute, but it still doesn't answer my question.
When did NATO get into the nation-building business?
I specifically mentioned this. Why post question on a forum if you don't read the answers?
