pogge exposes the rather blatant conflict of interest, but I'm amused by this snippet from the referenced article:

Meantime, a keen observer of the conflict says he worries the public won't understand that Canada's real success in Afghanistan includes building new roads and farm infrastructure.

But ... but .. I thought we were all about the schools. What happened to the schools we're building? Don't we care about the schools anymore?

Tune in next month when we will have recalibrated our "success" metrics yet again.

Maybe I'm just an ignorant fuck, but I don't recall seeing a photo of a school or a hospital or a road that we've built in the past 8 years, and if somehow I did but don't remember, is it still standing?
