“Why Sangisar?”, Major Moffet said. “It was a node for the Taliban."

Canadian troops sure can kick a** when necessary. When the going gets tough ... the tough get going!

And taliban have used children in their warfare for as long as I have been reading about this, from what is written in the records.
But, taliban jack wants to negotiate with them.
They put their children in the middle of the road--to stop convoys, and then attack--if the child dies, they call him--no matter how young--a martyr who will get 72 plus virgins.
If the child lives, a bowl of soup and a fre lecture on islamofacism.

They are also good at sending someone carrying explosives into a crowd of children to blow them all up, even a crowd of Muslim children. Funny how the regular bleeding-hearts and human rights groups remain silent while claiming that Canada is guilty of child poverty, abuse, etc. No, actually it is not funny but is very predictable.

I should have specified that by they I am referring to the Islamists and not our troops.

Talking about islamofacism, I came across a very good article on the subject at hand--written by someone from the Sudan.
Here it is--read it and weep.

"Where is Desmond Tutu when my people in Sudan call out for freedom?"
Late last month, I went to hear Bishop Desmond Tutu speak at Boston's Old South Church at a conference on "Israel Apartheid." Tutu is a well respected man of God. He brought reconciliation between blacks and whites in South Africa. That he would lead a conference that damns the Jewish state is very disturbing to me.
The State of Israel is not an apartheid state. I know because I write this from Jerusalem where I have seen Arab mothers peacefully strolling with their families -- even though I also drove on Israeli roads protected by walls and fences from Arab bullets and stones. I know Arabs go to Israeli schools, and get the best medical care in the world. I know they vote and have elected representatives to the Israeli Parliament. I see street signs in Arabic, an official language here. None of this was true for blacks under Apartheid in Tutu's South Africa.
I also know countries that do deserve the apartheid label: My country, Sudan, is on the top of the list, but so are Iran, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. What has happened to my people in Sudan is a thousand times worse than Apartheid in South Africa. And no matter how the Palestinians suffer, they suffer nothing compared to my people. Nothing. And most of the suffering is the fault of their leaders. Bishop Tutu, I see black Jews walking down the street here in Jerusalem. Black like us, free and proud.
Tutu said Israeli checkpoints are a nightmare. But checkpoints are there because Palestinians are sent into Israel to blow up and kill innocent women and children. Tutu wants checkpoints removed. Do you not have doors in your home, Bishop? Does that make your house an apartheid house? If someone, Heaven forbid, tried to enter with a bomb, we would want you to have security people "humiliating" your guests with searches, and we would not call you racist for doing so. We all go through checkpoints at every airport. Are the airlines being racist? No.
Yes, the Palestinians are inconvenienced at checkpoints. But why, Bishop Tutu, do you care more about that inconvenience than about Jewish lives?
Bishop, when you used to dance for Mandela's freedom, we Africans -- all over Africa -- joined in. Our support was key in your freedom. But when children in Burundi and Kinshasa, all the way to Liberia and Sierra Leone, and in particular in Sudan, cried and called for rescue, you heard but chose to be silent.
Today, black children are enslaved in Sudan, the last place in the continent of Africa where humans are owned by other humans -- I was part of the movement to stop slavery in Mauritania, which just now abolished the practice. But you were not with us, Bishop Tutu.
So where is Desmond Tutu when my people call out for freedom? Slaughter and genocide and slavery are lashing Africans right now. Where are you for Sudan, Bishop Tutu? You are busy attacking the Jewish state. Why?

Black on black killings seem to be acceptable to Tutu. It is only when Jews defend themselves against attack that he steps up to condemn that justifiable behaviour. Typical Leftoid!

I think it is more like when Arabs kill blacks--that's OK, but when Jews defend themselves from Arabs--that's not ok. Tutu is an old fashioned christian, who hates Jews for more than one reason--so whoever else hates Jews, he likes and supports, even if it means to the detriment of his own people. After all--all they have to do is wave about a little money in his own personal direction--like Carter--and voila! Tutu bends over and presents his best face.
