It's only a coffee cup

In a politics blog that I frequent they had a post about the Tim Horton's Roll Up the Win Contest in Afghanistan. It was the most contreversial post since the Green Party/Liberal non-competition treaty was announced a few weeks ago.

For the record. Supplying our soldiers with a taste of home is a way to boost morale for Soldiers who are willing to give their lives for their country. It is the same as people being able to send pizza to IDF soldiers.

It has nothing to do with exploiting the poor for corporate domination. It has nothing to do with the question of how long our troops should stay in Afghanistan. It has nothing to do with how the Afghanistan government treats prisoners that have been handed over by Canadian soldiers.

Why are people so stuck on pushing their personal agendas and ignoring everything else?
