Canada to stage MOCK Afghan attack in Washington

Sept. 14, 2009 — Defence Minister orders Canadian embassy in Washington to cut blasts from Afghan war showcase.

The Canadian embassy in Washington plans to build a faux Afghan village in the embassy courtyard, populated by Afghan actors, and set of fake IEDs, in an effort to show American opinion makers how Canadian Forces are doing all they can to win the war in Afghanistan. Scheduled IED attacks set for at noon and 2 p.m. on Sept. 23, 2009.
       On Sunday, September 6, 2009, two more Canadian soldiers have been killed in action on a road southwest of Kandahar by a roadside bomb blast: 36-year-old Maj. Yannick Pepin and Cpl. Jean-Francois Drouin, 21. To see the HONOR ROLL of FALLEN CANADIAN TROOPS in Afghanistan to date, please scroll down the right-hand sidebar.
