Canada leans in harder

As per the BBC snap report last week that I cannot find on the web, right now Canada has 959 soldiers in ISAF alone in Afghanistan, and a few hundred others supporting OEF. In 2006 they will send 1,500 more as NATO starts to take control over most of the country from the US, they have the Northern part right now. Some other views of Canada in AF here and here.

I tease Canada now and then, but mostly out of frustration. They are part of the solution in AF. Pound for pound though, what few soldiers, sailors, and airmen they have represent some of the best fighters in the West.

Thanks folks – now go make some “Moose Milk.”
