Taligram for Gordon O'Connor


Does anyone think the recent upsurge in attacks on Canadian troops in Afghanistan might be a result of Canada's Minister of National Defence apologizing on behalf of a free press for publication of a Danish cartoon or two?

I suggested on 15-Feb that he might be inviting trouble here:
[Your comment is] an invitation to attack Canadian troops; because a) as noted, it insults the jihadi, and b) it tells them attacking Canadian troops will have a significant political effect.
I do not think these Taliban are sending a message to the Western Standard. That leaves... who?
