Defending the Warlords

It's nice to see that Afghanistan's warlords have voted themselves immunity from prosecution. These are the people that are running the Kabul city council Afghan parliament so I suppose it's easy for them to do that. What this article reminds me of though is that one of the questions we need to ask is whether Canada's and NATO's presence in Afghanistan is really just protecting one set of war criminals (assorted warlords) from another (the Taliban).

Should Canadians be fighting and dying for the future of a country that will not deal with its own past?
