Sgt. Russell D. Storring: We Have to stay in Afghanistan

Another CBC news opinion piece by one of our soldiers in Afghanistan. Taliban Jack should read this before he beaks off about the Afghanistan mission being "terrorist-like".

Despite the increase in insurgent activities since early 2006, Afghanistan is still moving forward on the road of democracy and reconstruction. Schools, hospitals, clinics and businesses remain open despite suicide bombings, fire bombings, and rocket attacks. Thousands of Afghanis have been killed in attempts by the Taliban to bring fear to the population, like they did when they were in power. Unfortunately the Taliban have failed to realize that the people of Afghanistan have spoken and voted for democracy and freedom, and the more the Taliban try to terrorize, the more the people will fight back and the more they will support the efforts of the fledgling government and the coalition.

Kinda hard to argue against the will of the people we are there to protect.
