WHY and FOR HOW LONG
Afghanistan has been largely absent from the news lately and the media focusing on The Greening and on disputation over fiscal imbalance and consideration
of Year One of the New Government has not commented on these mouthings of Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor.
Are we there fighting Afghan's "in "retribution" for the 9/11 attacks "? Are we as a country committed "until progress there becomes irreversible".?
Appears so in that the comments stand without contradiction.
EDMONTON - Canada is fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan in "retribution" for the 9/11 attacks that killed at least 3,000 people, including 25 Canadians, Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor said yesterday. http://www.canada.com/ottawacitizen/news/story.html?id=3a784a6c-a6fc-490e-bccd-62cefb82cbad
Afghan mission will continue until progress secure - defence minister
OROMOCTO, N.B. (CP) - Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor has told the latest wave of troops heading for Afghanistan that Canada will support the NATO mission in the war-torn country until progress there becomes irreversible. http://www.macleans.ca/topstories/politics/news/shownews.jsp?content=n011933A#continue
Every day that goes by is one day closer to the end of George W. Bush's presidency. Time is quickly running out for his agenda. Bush has to prioritize which Daily Digest conspiracy theory he must fulfill before January, 2009: war with Iran, North American economic union, dissolution of the ozone layer, or turning Iraq into a vassal state. It is tough as he faces a Democratic Congress and a press corp eager for a "Clinton-Obama 2008" presidential ticket.

Picture of global warming in 1974!!
Hi, Joe: 01-21
Here is a picture which I took in 1974 at the Columbia Ice fields of the Athabaska Glacier. The picture was taken from the side of the Banff - Jasper Highway. I have also attached a close-up of the far away cars and low buildings. When we returned home (in Manitoba at that time), our neighbour showed us a picture taken several years earlier, where a member of his family stood at the edge of the glacier, at the edge of the road.
Should go back to see how far the glacier has shrunk now, in case it is still there.
