Did Canada fund Afghanistan’s ‘ghost schools’?

For all our talk about ISIS these days — are ISIS-themed Conservative attack ads over the top? Why don’t the Liberals seem to understand what ISIS is? Why can’t the West put an end to the slaughter? — Canadians aren’t paying much attention to the results of the last war we waged against Islamist extremists.

Yet there were a handful of stories in the news last week about schools in Afghanistan, or rather, schools that aren’t there.

    This is probably a good question which I shall follow up. After I find out do you know why G#tes of Vienna has been shut down since noon. It actually says nothing there. That could happen to you as well. What happens to the gates of Vienna also happens to you. Many of us rely on many sites so we don’t have to watch TV. Who took Gates Vienna down?

    • No idea, lets hope they get it solved.

      They lost their database.
      Probibly not intentionally, either.

    Re the ghost schools, shouldn’t we have known from the Victorian Age? They hate us. Now we hate them. Never the twain shall meet. It should have been the real Shock and Awe. Germany and Japan felt it and became modern. These disgusting head hand #nd feet chopper feell free to act out their sick fantasies of anarchy. Not one of these sick, very mentally ill people should EVER be allowed back into the Fee World. They are all vile depraved creatures who do not belong with Free People. I want them gone from this earth. I do not think I am alone.

      Definitely not alone, I daresay there are more and more every day, I just wonder how long until we reach the tipping point.

    Afghanistan, Pakistan… all the predominately Islamic countries are lost causes. No amount of money we throw at them will change anything. No amount of interfaith dialogue will make us stronger. No amount of accommodation will benefit us. Even in countries where they account for a mere 5% of the population, they have proven themselves to be dangerous to us.

    Give up. After centuries of rejecting reality, what makes anyone think they’ll want to improve now? F*** ’em, and the goats they rode in on.
