Canadian Soldier Killed



Trooper Karine Blais, who began her tour of duty just two weeks ago, has been identified as the fallen soldier.

Just 21 years old & the 2nd female soldier to be killed. How much longer do we have to wait before we bring them home?

Such a young lady, really too bad. I was also reading in the Star than one in five soldiers, come home with mental instabilities. Who wouldn't in a place like that. We need our Peacekeepers back.

Not soon enough! And with that horrible law the Afghan parliament has just passed, I seriously think we should be using our troops as leverage to get that law changed. We should be telling Karzai et al. that they either repeal the law, or we're outta there. I'm really resentful that we're having our people killed over there to enable that kind of repression.
