2. The only way to ensure the lives of civilians at this point is to stay
Edited on Sun Mar-26-06 09:39 AM by applegrove
until some semblance of governance exists. Maybe they can be redeployed in 6 months. I don't know. A tragedy that private corporations were entrusted with what a professional army could only teach. Neocons actions are tragic on so many levels.

But I would not wish more instability on any civilian at any time. I hope that US negotiating with Iran works to calm the situation down.

I hope that Canadians in Afghanistan somehow manage to finish the job there. At least keep the lid on it.

And yes - Chretien got some great advice from experts on intelligence who said "the intelligence on this Iraq war doesn't follow previously known patterns... watch out - warning - red flag - doesn't compute". Canada was the antithesis of neocons in that .. professionalism in governance. Governing according to a sober assessment of the facts rather than on dreamlike delusions of power where when the dust settles - all of the dust falls into the exact pattern neos dream of.
