Canada has ceased combat Ops in Afghanistan: Canadians transfer Kandahar battle command to Americans - CTV News Following from the withdrawal of the Dutch last year, this means that both RC South and RC SouthWest will be almost entirely US/UK areas - with the vast majority being, of course, US Forces. Certainly there are still contributions from Denmark, the Baltic states, Singapore, etc, but in practical terms RC South is now a US-only area, and RC SW is well over 60% US. What a change from only three years ago, when RC South was a joint UK/NL/CA zone, with a few token Yanks. Still, that's the way things go - and you can bet your bottom Afghani that at least one Canuck will stay in Afghanistan somewhere, to keep the ISAF flag count up! The Canadians have nothing at all to be ashamed about - as with the Dutch, they've taken heavy casualties, and done far more than they either expected to do, or 'signed up' for. Should we be following the CA and NL lead, and pulling out with heads held high? Or are we right to hang on for as long as possible (please don't say "until the job is done", as that is patent nonsense), as our own Military leaders want?
