CBC's Derek Stoffel returns home after a six-week assignment in Afghanistan. During his time in Afghanistan Stoffel has brought you comprehensive and thorough reports on the war-torn country and even blogged about playing hockey in 40 degree weather. On Tuesday, June 12 at 1pm EDT, he takes your questions on life in Afghanistan, covering the troops and the reality of the current political and social situation.

I'd like to see some of our articulate Army.ca members pose a few poignant questions to help open the eyes of the general Canadian public.

I missed the open session, but on reading Derek's answers I think that he gave a pretty objective and fair response. It's not the job of thte media to be our cheerleaders any more than it's their job to character assassinate us. I think his responses give a pretty accurate picture: it's complicated, dangerous, and it'll take a long time to get put right. But we are making limited progress.

Cheers
