DOG issues in AFGHANISTAN

Charlie the First at New Westminster Quay, BC. Canada,
in his "mellower" years - at one time he was a fur ball looking for kill!

The newscaster issued a warning before showing the footage of the dog fight in Afghanistan... Accusatory words carefully chosen insinuating vaguely some sort of "savagery" - no one wanted to be interviewed as "they were ashamed" of their participation - the commentary concluded.

Perhaps, we should send then all computers and XBOXES to amuse themselves in a more civilized fashion! (A "better violence" type of entertainment... no?)
And maybe, at the same, deflect from the (now almost certainty) that Canadian official/authorities were aware of prisoners being tortured in Afghanistan... have participated in - hm?
Us, no longer the Peacekeepers - it breaks my heart!
=
I suppose when we keep our attention on others, we don't allow much of an opportunity to look at ourselves .

Charlie the Second to the right, with friends Duffie up front and (?) at the back. Ooops, memory lapse!
