Apparently, someone has kidnapped the editorial board of the National Post and replaced them with a jar of Folger's Crystals:
The Liberals' proposal may be popular among the party's MPs, and may even find favour with some voters. But it would undo all the good done so far by our mission, and thereby render futile the sacrifices of the 78 Canadian soldiers who have paid the ultimate price.

Man, that sounds depressingly familiar.
BY THE WAY, let's not forget what noble ideals Canadian soldiers have been dying for:
Afghan senate backs death penalty
Afghanistan's upper house of parliament has issued a statement backing a death sentence for a journalist for blasphemy in northern Afghanistan.
Pervez Kambakhsh, 23, was convicted last week of downloading and distributing an article insulting Islam. He has denied the charge.
Yes, the Afghan government does seem to have backtracked from that initial death sentence lately but, really, the fact that the case got that far is not a good sign.
