I want to add a comment to what you said about this massive portion of the population that's against our being there, and your comment about development and war going on in Afghanistan.
I think it's valuable to remember there are 34 provinces in Afghanistan. Almost all of this insurgency is going on in four provinces.
The area where Flora MacDonald's work is going on has seen a tremendous amount of improvement. A lot of the places I've been to have seen improvement. So there is no doubt there is improvement, and with the exception of the four southern provinces, I think it's fair to say that people are marginally better off. What we're questioning is, how come they're not a lot better off?
And as for the protest against the war in Canada, I think it's very important for all of us to understand who's informing us. Most of the protest, if you look at the studies, is based on the fact that people say that we invaded Afghanistan. We did not; we were invited by the government. Protest is based on the fact that we are occupying Afghanistan. We are not. It would be a lot easier for the military if we were, but we are not. And at every protest, you hear the notion that the Afghan people wish we would leave. In my opinion, you'd be hard-pressed to find a single Afghan who wants Canada to leave, except for the extremists.
