The "Good" News from Afghanistan

I'll condense this down a wee bit: Afghan tribal leaders are thankful that Canadians are somewhat less likely than other NATO troops to shoot at innocent bystanders!

All facetiousness aside, I suppose we can be thankful that our soldiers are avoiding shooting randoms. Nonetheless, for The Torch to play this up as a great good news story that they aren't telling you is a bit silly. We have good soldiers, we've sent them to do something that is probably damn near impossible though (if we even have a coherent definition of the mission).
