He's Canadian and that's okay.  He works all night and he sleeps all day.

Great minds come to the same point, timing is only about random opportunity.

Of course they did. The situation was SO DIRE that he had time to stop and post a selfie on social media. What a HERO!!

Let this be a lesson to those who think all Canadian special forces do is guard the strategic Chalet Sauce reserves.

Five years of lobbying  and it was only at the end of July that the government got this moving. The day Trump announced the U.S was pulling out should have been a giant blaring siren that time was running out and we needed to start fast tracking applications. This guy did a great job under the circumstances but it is disgraceful we couldn't have done this better.

Harper had us out in 2014. Basically told 2/3's of the Afghans that helped up to pound sand, but yea Trudeau eff'd this up. CSB

So he can become a US congressman then?

Is that you Justin? Harper's government should have done better I've been critical about their criteria but they still approved over 800 which I think is pretty decent considering when we left in 2014 the country was in one piece with a functional government. Besides Trudeau didn't seem to treat this situation with any greater urgency when he took over it seems to have received less thought than he puts into picking out costumes for state visits.

HAL : Dave, stop. Stop, will you? Stop, Dave. Will you stop Dave? Stop, Dave.  I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm a... fraid. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it I can sing it for you.
Dave Bowman : Yes, I'd like to hear it, HAL. Sing it for me.
HAL : It's called "Daisy."

I'd like to argue these comments but I don't exactly know what they mean. I find it unlikely Canada could put a dent in Afghanistan one way or another. Not even a trillion USD, effort from most of Europe, and a butt load of drones could make any long term impact, so I'm not sure how anybody could throw Harper or Trudeau under the bus for this.

Kudos to Dave though, you make the world a better place.

Phil and Terrence were of no use whatsoever. They just kept farting in the faces of the allies and refugees.

You know, Republican stuff.
