But What About Tim Hortons?
I'm sure this will tip the balance of the war effort against the Taliban. The US Commander is banning junk food in Afghanistan.
Burgers go way of booze as US general Stanley McChrystal bans junk food
First he banned booze in his Kabul headquarters. Now the notoriously austere commander of US and Nato forces has a new target in his war on terror: ice cream and fast food.
General Stanley McChrystal, the former commander of Special Forces in Iraq, who runs eight miles a day, eats one meal and sleeps for only four hours a night, has given orders to close the junk food concessions on Nato bases.
Will this affect the Tim Hortons outlets that serve the Canadian Troops?
I would hope not. Tim Hortons has proven to be a great supporter of the Canadian efforts in the region. It would be a shame to have that taken just because some American General thinks junk food is bad.
