Canada May Withdraw Afghanistan Troops

   The United States other neighbor, not Mexico for a change, says that it may pull it's troops from Afghanistan.

    A Canadian special senate committee report which was released on Monday, says that Canadian troops who add support to NATO could be withdrawn if more support is not forthcoming from NATO.


"Canada and Nato must deploy resources in Afghanistan and use those resources in a better way than we have done to this point," the report said.
"If this proves impossible, Canada should be prepared to consider withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan as soon as our current commitment ends."

Canada has 2,500 troops in Afghanistan. They are due to be based in the city of Kandahar until early 2009.
