Canada Bails on Afghanistan

I will give the Canadians credit for fighting in the dangerous Kandahar region of Afghanistan, but they shouldn't bail out before the job is finished.
Almost all Canadian troops are out of Kandahar's dangerous combat zones, except for a few soldiers who are attached to American platoons for a few more weeks.

Canada's war in Afghanistan is now effectively over after five years of fighting throughout farmland and dusty villages in one of the country's most dangerous areas. It cost Canada the lives of 157 soldiers, one diplomat and one journalist, not to mention the many soldiers left with life-altering injuries.

Canadians have been working towards completion of the combat mission since Parliament voted in 2008 to end the mission by July 2011.
