It would seem that Harper did have an impact at the recent NATO meeting. Sadly it's not the one we wanted.

Seeing as Dion is a citizen of France, maybe he can pull some strings!

Funny, but not cute.

Seriously wilson, are you okay with this?

You have to take France at it's word. France's Special forces have been there since 2003.
But on the face of this report (who knows if all the facts are here, are they over committed?) it doesn't look good for NATO.
But it is no reflection on any one leader or country. France is France. The decision is theirs to make.

''France said the decision to pull the special forces troops, based in the southeastern city of Jalalabad, didn't indicate a weakening of its support for the mission in Afghanistan.

"There is a general reorganization of our [troops]," Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie said''
