Canada's Afghan Jitters

The Council on Foreign Relations has an insightful article on Canada's Afghan Jitters.

But despite the vote, the debate does not seem likely to go away. As in America, Canadian lawmakers face a public that has turned increasingly anti-war in recent months as they grope for an exit strategy from Afghanistan.'
