I awoke this morning to the news that three more Canadian soldiers have died in Afghanistan. No surprise. The story is the Taliban (if it's them) are refocusing and modifying their plans. Oh, really? The way you have to look at it is that the Taliban (or whoever it is) could be looking at this like it's a big game; fun, in fact. Why wouldn't they? It's their game to play. They call the shots.
What's unfortunate in the end run -- and that's what it is, an endless run -- is that these soldiers' deaths are all for nothing: Our troops and those of other nations, stationed in Afghanistan, are accomplishing a big... fat... nothing!
Oh, and don't forget to watch Don Cherry tear up on Hockey Night in Canada this coming Saturday evening.
