Alexandre Trudeau: Leave Afghanistan

This is simply breathtaking:

Canada's "aggressive" war in Afghanistan is all about "teaching lessons with weapons" and will leave nothing behind "except the blood we've lost there," the journalist son of the late prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau said yesterday.

"Our aggressive military activities in Afghanistan are foolish and wrong," said Alexandre (Sacha) Trudeau, 34.

"The Pashtun (people) have extremely different values than ours, values we may not agree with in any case, but it's not our business to try and teach them lessons with weapons," Trudeau told The Gazette.

"Because, in fact, they'll be the ones teaching us lessons.

"We're going to have to leave the place or there'll be nothing left of us or of whatever we've done, except the blood we've lost there after we leave. So it's better we leave now."

This message is virtually identical to Taliban propaganda and Alexandre Trudeau should apologize to every single member of the Canadian Forces, men and women who possess courage and strength that "pipsqueak" Trudeau cannot even fathom.

Perhaps we should have drafted Fidel Castro to fight for us, I hear he has a "herculean physique."
