Canada is militarily protecting the Neo-Taliban regime?

The former "Klondike Days" parade in Edmonton (part of a summer carnival of rides, children's gambling and bad deep fried food) had a military theme this year. For the Americans reading this, understand that military parades are definitely not a big part of Canadian culture. They exist, but they're rare.

I can't help but wonder if our new minority government's emphasis on imperialism (whoops, I mean to type "being openly sycophantic remoras to the American war machine, rather than the more covert sycophantic tapeworms of the American war machine under the Liberal government) helped decide this theme. Then again, the theme was probably chosen before the Conservatives came into office.

But hey, when our Prime Minister shows the kind of bold leadership in declaring that the wiping out of a Canadian family and aerial stone-ageing of an entire, modern, beautiful country is "measured," then I guess all bets on common sense are off, huh?

So it is perhaps no surprise that "my" government is militarily backing the Afghan government which is responsible for the following.

"AFGHANISTAN’S notorious Department for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which was set up by the Taliban to enforce bans on women doing anything from working to wearing nail varnish or laughing out loud, is to be re-created by the government in Kabul."
