I don't know what to do for my next 30 years, Mr. Jackson. I will follow the Afghanistan issue.
Mr. Jackson, you said that unfortunately there will probably be more violence, more soldiers killed, more suicide bombings and more IED’s in Afghanistan. I was very pleased to hear Mr. Heinbecker say that our action should be driven more by the results of our efforts than by politics and target dates. Indeed, we may have to deal with schedules that are of a human rather than political nature. Ms. Armstrong said she saw results because houses are still there. She believes things are improving and people's lives are getting better.
Ms. MacDonald earlier said that 78% of the people still live in villages. The international community is devoting its efforts to the various regions of Afghanistan. What impact will urbanization have on this country?
Ms. Wijeyaratne, you returned from Afghanistan in January or February. What do the Afghan people think of the international support they are getting, and more particularly Canadian support? How do they like what we are doing to help them become a democratic country, as I think they want to?
