‘The challenges facing Afghanistan are enormous’

Canada’s conservative Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, has declared:

“Let us be realistic. The challenges facing Afghanistan are enormous. There will be no quick fixes.
Moreover, success cannot be assured by military means alone. This we all recognize. For success also requires a strong and unwavering civilian contribution: educators, engineers, elections advisors; direct aid and technical assistance. The list is lengthy, but the contributions essential.”
