Afghanistan: Detention and abuse of children

Last night, November 28, 2010 there was a very disturbing story on CBC National News about the detention of Afghan children by the Canadian army. According to this story such children are kept in Canadian custody indefinitely and then are often handed over to Afghans who regularly abuse such children. Is that what is called democracy? Is that the democracy we are spreading in Afghanistan?
Now Harper wants to train Afghan military. Since we are such ‘great experts’ why not? I don’t feel good to be Canadian. It would look more harm is being done than social justice in Afghanistan. Another good example of such harm is propping up one of the most corrupt governments, that of Karzai.
