We're not at war in Afghanistan.
At least that's what the Minister of Defense says.
As far as I know, the United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001 and Canada has spent a good deal of time, resources, and lives assisting in the conquest of this country since then.
We didn't go into Afghanistan wearing blue peacekeeping helmets to separate two mortal enemies from eachother. Nor did we go to a peaceful but broken country that needed rebuilding. We didn't even go with a UN mandate for a "police action". We sent soldiers to a country that has been at war for at least a quarter of a century to contribute to the war effort by joining our preferred side. Our soldiers are dying, and our soldiers are killing.
If this isn't war, what is it?
