ABSTRACT
The article examines the issue of continued Canadian military presence in Afghanistan. Despite reports of improving conditions in Afghanistan and increased presence of ground forces will improve the lives of the Afghan people and lead to the country's liberation, actual facts and statistics suggest that the answer to the Afghan situation is not military intervention. The author believes that Canada should spend money for major social and infrastructural projects in Afghanistan.
