Why are we in Afghanistan?

Dooney's Cafe, the always promising online magazine driven by the concerns and interests of Stan Persky, though he's not its only author and the site takes its name from a coffeeshop in Toronto's Annex, not one in Vancouver's Kitsilano, has the most damnedly interesting discussion of Canada's presence in Afghanistan. Its a conversation between Persky and the westcoast activist and environmental writer Terry Glavin. This may need an apoplexy alert for conventional progressives: they explain why they support the war. Full essay is here.

[PS. Score a point for Ivor Tossell (see below). Dooney's Cafe is a, not a]
