Canadian troops join-in NATO offensive in Eastern Afghanistan

Canadian troops launched a major offensive against the Taliban on Saturday morning in an effort to take control of the districts of Zhari and Panjwai in southern Afghanistan. The campaign, dubbed Operation Medusa, began at 5 a.m. local time about 30 kilometres west of Kandahar, military officials told CBC News.
Afghan and NATO troops, including most of the combat units among Canada's 2,200-strong contingent in Afghanistan, plan to secure the area and offer humanitarian assistance for anyone displaced by the offensive. Over the past several weeks, coalition and Afghan forces battle militants from the region and pull back, allowing the Taliban to return.

Yay, looks like the offensive continues - finally, people realized that politics of stagnation fail in that region; it is time to deal with the Islamic terrorists in the effective way - attack and destroy.
