CF trainers in demand in Kandahar

US Army Lt.-Gen. William B. Caldwell, in a new paper published by the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute, argues that Canadian Forces trainers are needed by NATO in Kandahar, the Canadian Press reported. Mr. Caldwell is the top commander of NATO's training mission in the country. He wrote the paper before Canada announced it would extend its mission in Afghanistan to accommodate for a training mission. The government has promised the troops would be centered around Kabul, but defence analysts point out most of the training slots there are already taken.
