Canadian Press Wants Us Out of Afghanistan

I came across this story on CNEWS, unatributed of course, just written by the invisible hand of the vast left wing conspiracy: $4.1 billion spent on Afghanistan
The federal government has spent more than $4.1 billion on its Afghan operations since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed 25 Canadians in New York's twin towers, a think-tank said Wednesday...
From the headline it sounds like this is a fact, the numbers are part of public record because a think-tank had done the research. Only after going in depth into the article did I realize that the 'think-tank' in question was the Polaris Institute. This little snippet is from their section named "The Corporate Security State Project":
The relationship between economic globalization, militarism, and security has become critically important in the post 9/11 context. The ongoing war on terror is being used not to just seek out those responsible for the 9/11 attacks, but to provide greater protection for corporations through a war economy and muted social justice movements.
Does this sound like a fair and impartial group without an agenda? Whenever they quote the Fraser Institute or the NCC they always call them "a right wing think tank" or a "Socially Conservative organization." The headline should have read:

Neo-Progressive Left-Wing Anti-War Socialist Historical-Revisionist Think-Tank Wants Us to Beleive Them About Cost of War in Afghanistan.

It kinda has a ring to it.

Sure,lets give it back to the Muhammedian Taliban thugs,plus who would have thought Peggy Nash would approve the Burqa and females being shot in public.

I guess those tolerant NDP are OK with war as long as it only Arabs and Muslims being killed.

I've been digging and can't find this connection. I can find their ties to the the Canadian Communist Party - Marxist Leninist.
And their spokespeople do seem to have the freedom to travel the globe as they wish.
I suspect that their sources of funding are the same as the CCPML - various governments that have a deep interest in distracting western democracies (Chavez, Castro, Chinese, Middle Easterners).
Folks like these don't buy their gas masks and molotovs from their trust funds (although some may).

Peggy Mason from Polaris just had a lengthy interview on CBC Newsworld devoted to her attacking the Afstan mission. One of her key points was that our forces are now under US Operation Enduring Freedom (true) and that we don't know when they will transfer to NATO control. Totally false. The transfer is scheduled for July 31. But the Canadian media did not report that. See:

"Afstan update: UK general takes command of expanding NATO mission"

If Ms Mason does not know this simple fact she has no business commenting, or else she is dissembling. And the ditzy host, Nancy Wilson, of course did not know enough to call Ms Mason on her misrepresentation.

Failing to identify the background of moonbat organizationslike the Polaris Institute is SOP at CBC and CTV...the fact that niether the talking heads on air or producers in back make any effort to call the BS that comes from these idiots is no surprise either....

This is an anti-free enterprise bunch of asshats who badly need an education.

One thing that struck me as odd in the days after 9/11 was Bush saying "We will not tolerate conspiracy theories [regarding 9/11]". Sure enough there have been some wacky conspiracy theories surrounding the events of that day. The most far-fetched and patently ridiculous one that I've ever heard goes like this: Nineteen hijackers who claimed to be devout Muslims but yet were so un-Muslim as to be getting drunk all the time, doing cocaine and frequenting strip clubs decided to hijack four airliners and fly them into buildings in the northeastern U.S., the area of the country that is the most thick with fighter bases. After leaving a Koran on a barstool at a strip bar after getting shitfaced drunk on the night before, then writing a suicide note/inspirational letter that sounded like it was written by someone with next to no knowledge of Islam, they went to bed and got up the next morning hung over and carried out their devious plan. Nevermind the fact that of the four "pilots" among them there was not a one that could handle a Cessna or a Piper Cub let alone fly a jumbo jet, and the one assigned the most difficult task of all, Hani Hanjour, was so laughably incompetent that he was the worst fake "pilot" of the bunch. Nevermind the fact that they received very rudimentary flight training at Pensacola Naval Air Station, making them more likely to have been C.I.A. assets than Islamic fundamentalist terrorists. So on to the airports. These "hijackers" somehow managed to board all four airliners with their tickets, yet not even ONE got his name on any of the flight manifests. So they hijack all four airliners and at this time passengers on United 93 start making a bunch of cell phone calls from 35,000 feet in the air to tell people what was going on. Nevermind the fact that cell phones wouldn't work very well above 4,000 feet, and wouldn't work at ALL above 8,000 feet. But the conspiracy theorists won't let that fact get in the way of a good fantasy. That is one of the little things you "aren't supposed to think about". Nevermind that one of the callers called his mom and said his first and last name, more like he was reading from a list than calling his own mom. Anyway, when these airliners each deviated from their flight plan and didn't respond to ground control, NORAD would any other time have followed standard operating procedure (and did NOT have to be told by F.A.A. that there were hijackings because they were watching the same events unfold on their own radar) which means fighter jets would be scrambled from the nearest base where they were available on standby within a few minutes, just like every other time when airliners stray off course. But of course on 9/11 this didn't happen, not even close. Somehow these "hijackers" must have used magical powers to cause NORAD to stand down, as ridiculous as this sounds because total inaction from the most high-tech and professional Air Force in the world would be necessary to carry out their tasks. So on the most important day in its history the Air Force was totally worthless. Then they had to make one of the airliners look like a smaller plane, because unknown to them the Naudet brothers had a videocamera to capture the only known footage of the North Tower crash, and this footage shows something that is not at all like a jumbo jet, but didn't have to bother with the South Tower jet disguising itself because that was the one we were "supposed to see". Anyway, as for the Pentagon they had to have Hani Hanjour fly his airliner like it was a fighter plane, making a high G-force corkscrew turn that no real airliner can do, in making its descent to strike the Pentagon. But these "hijackers" wanted to make sure Rumsfeld survived so they went out of their way to hit the farthest point in the building from where Rumsfeld and the top brass are located. And this worked out rather well for the military personnel in the Pentagon, since the side that was hit was the part that was under renovation at the time with few military personnel present compared to construction workers. Still more fortuitous for the Pentagon, the side that was hit had just before 9/11 been structurally reinforced to prevent a large fire there from spreading elsewhere in the building. Awful nice of them to pick that part to hit, huh? Then the airliner vaporized itself into nothing but tiny unidentifiable pieces no bigger than a fist, unlike the crash of a real airliner when you will be able to see at least some identifiable parts, like crumpled wings, broken tail section etc. Why, Hani Hanjour the terrible pilot flew that airliner so good that even though he hit the Pentagon on the ground floor the engines didn't even drag the ground!! Imagine that!! Though the airliner vaporized itself on impact it only made a tiny 16 foot hole in the building. Amazing. Meanwhile, though the planes hitting the Twin Towers caused fires small enough for the firefighters to be heard on their radios saying "We just need 2 hoses and we can knock this fire down" attesting to the small size of it, somehow they must have used magical powers from beyond the grave to make this morph into a raging inferno capable of making the steel on all forty-seven main support columns (not to mention the over 100 smaller support columns) soften and buckle, then all fail at once. Hmmm. Then still more magic was used to make the building totally defy physics as well as common sense in having the uppermost floors pass through the remainder of the building as quickly, meaning as effortlessly, as falling through air, a feat that without magic could only be done with explosives. Then exactly 30 minutes later the North Tower collapses in precisely the same freefall physics-defying manner. Incredible. Not to mention the fact that both collapsed at a uniform rate too, not slowing down, which also defies physics because as the uppermost floors crash into and through each successive floor beneath them they would shed more and more energy each time, thus slowing itself down. Common sense tells you this is not possible without either the hijackers' magical powers or explosives. To emphasize their telekinetic prowess, later in the day they made a third building, WTC # 7, collapse also at freefall rate though no plane or any major debris hit it. Amazing guys these magical hijackers. But we know it had to be "Muslim hijackers" the conspiracy theorist will tell you because (now don't laugh) one of their passports was "found" a couple days later near Ground Zero, miraculously "surviving" the fire that we were told incinerated planes, passengers and black boxes, and also "survived" the collapse of the building it was in. When common sense tells you if that were true then they should start making buildings and airliners out of heavy paper and plastic so as to be "indestructable" like that magic passport. The hijackers even used their magical powers to bring at least seven of their number back to life, to appear at american embassies outraged at being blamed for 9/11!! BBC reported on that and it is still online. Nevertheless, they also used magical powers to make the american government look like it was covering something up in the aftermath of this, what with the hasty removal of the steel debris and having it driven to ports in trucks with GPS locators on them, to be shipped overseas to China and India to be melted down. When common sense again tells you that this is paradoxical in that if the steel was so unimportant that they didn't bother saving some for analysis but so important as to require GPS locators on the trucks with one driver losing his job because he stopped to get lunch. Hmmmm. Yes, this whole story smacks of the utmost idiocy and fantastical far-fetched lying, but it is amazingly enough what some people believe. Even now, five years later, the provably false fairy tale of the "nineteen hijackers" is heard repeated again and again, and is accepted without question by so many Americans. Which is itself a testament to the innate psychological cowardice of the American sheeple, i mean people, and their abject willingness to believe something, ANYTHING, no matter how ridiculous in order to avoid facing a scary uncomfortable truth. Time to wake up America.

What a Mess,
Canadian Government Officials decided over the people's will to send our troops in Afghanistan.... What a mess... What a loss for all Canadians...
While we were seen as a peaceful country, we are now being seen as the Canadian-American puppet-like watchdog and hole-filling entity for the United States government official's stupid and unthinkable acts, what a pitiful task for our country.
While Afghanistan is cashing-in billions of dollars from many friendly foreign countries, whether in huge amounts of cash money already spent, in transit, and promised billion dollars contributions, armed forces troops, building materials and food, everything going into Afghanistan is Afghan property as said by Afghan prime minister on TV News, none of the contributing countries can claim or ask for ownership of whatever already is or comes into his country, never can contibuting countries ask for any kind of refund. What is already and will be given to Afghanistan is the sole property of Afghan Government and it's people.
If this is the way it works, then why are we Canadians risking and losing our troop's lives and using our defense equipment somewhere we don't have nor will we get any interests ? Our military equipments cannot be considered as really good offensive warfare equipments, except for our f-18 so what are we doing there ?
Showing off our gigantic and powerful army ???
Seriously speaking, what the hell are we doing there???
Protecting and feeding some Afghan people against Afghan-Taliban terror warlords and druglords? What are we doing there ???
I am pretty sure that there are some mean Afghan government officials and mean Afghan army officials who are feeding intelligence information through some underpaid Afghan army's soldiers towards Taliban intelligence with tons of information on the coalition moves to be done therefore protecting Talibans from heavy losses, whether men or warfare equipment, therefore protecting the fields providing the Taliban's and Afghan's most important source of revenues, opium and it's derivates... If they were selling crushed stone, I am pretty sure that nobody would care for Afghanistan's reconstitution and reconstruction. Someone, somewhere must know what we are really doing there, don't you think ??? Money talks...and makes people talk too...Don't you think like me ? or am I totally in the wrong field ?
Let's open our minds here, Afghanistan's problems are and will always remain a total loss of our people and tax money, we don't have any kind of interests in this country, that is all !!!

Why don't we Candians order our troops back home with all our military equipment and let the Afghans and their own Afghan-Talibans resolve by themselves, like real people normally do, the problem they have been dealing with for so many years without acheiving any kind of deal ?
Please don't tell me that it is our enormous and powerful Canadian Army that will solve their eternal problems, we are not even speaking their language nor do we have their way of thinking and believing in a God, so what are we doing there ???
So many nice but poor Canadian people needs HERE AND NOW the money that has been given, that is actually sent, spent or promised to these religious-based eternally troubled foreign countries and keep it to support and feed our own needy people, therefore bringing better wealth for them RIGHT HERE IN CANADA.
Come on Canadian Men and Women, let know to YOUR government officials that they have to address this derivated tax money to our own poor people's needs,
