Four Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan
Four Canadian soldiers were killed during a series of bloody attacks in the Afghan province of Kandahar Thursday.

CTV News Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife said government sources confirmed three NATO soldiers killed on the outskirts of Kandahar city were Canadian.

Earlier, a NATO spokesman said suspected Taliban fighters killed the three and wounded six others with rocket-propelled grenades.

They died just hours after Canadian soldier Cpl. Christopher Jonathan Reid was killed when his LAV III vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb around 30 kilometres west of Kandahar City in the Pashmul area.

1. So sad...
The Taliban may be some of the most evil and barbaric scum on earth today. I can't think of any worse.

4. Is there still a war going on in Afghanistan??
You would not know there was still one when you watch our media here. There have been approx. 300 U.S. troops killed there the last time I looked. Thanks for mentioning it. A friend of our family (19 yrs old) just got sent there 2 weeks ago. We are praying for all of our troops to come home safely.

5. I had read about the first one earlier

But these three are new. I guess the war-mongers will be happy.

On edit - The CBC says ten injured, four killed today. You would have to go back to Korea to get a day that bad for Canada, I think.

7. oh, Christ
Pawns in the game.

Fuck Harper. And, if I may say, fuck Martin before him. And fuck Layton while we're at it, for trying to walk a gutless path.
