War in Afghanistan On September 11, 2001 terrorists attacked the United States. The fact that they were based in Afghanistan resulted in the United States and a coalition of countries. Canada was one of these countries and after October 7th contributed military forces to the operations in Afghanistan( Kirton 170). The fact that Canada got involved in this international event raised many questions about the nature of Canada’s foreign policy. In particular it raises questions about which of the three schools of thought about Canadian foreign policy are correct. There three schools of thought are Canada as a penetrated satellite of the U.S., Canada as an internationalist middle power and Canada as a major or principal power( Kirton 12)....The end:
