The US just lost yet another ally in its proxy war against Russia.
How on earth is the US going to protect moderate terrorists without the support of the Canadian military?
Canada’s new leader-in-waiting says he intends to follow through on his campaign promise to pull the country out of the U.S.-led bombing campaign against ISIS militants in Syria and Iraq.
Justin Trudeau, who led the Liberal Party to a stunning victory in elections Monday, said he has already told U.S. President Barack Obama of his plans.
“He understands the commitments I’ve made around ending the combat mission,” Trudeau told reporters Tuesday, without giving a time frame for when Canada’s airstrikes would stop.
Trudeau is expected to take office in the coming weeks, replacing Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who sent Canadian warplanes to carry out airstrikes against ISIS.
Canada’s bombing raids started hitting the Islamic extremist group’s positions in Iraq in November 2014 and expanded into Syria in April.
As of last week, Canada’s six Hornet fighters in the region had flown 1,046 sorties in the anti-ISIS operation, according to the military, which didn’t specify how many of the flights involved airstrikes. Other aircraft have conducted hundreds of refueling and reconnaissance missions.
Everybody is pulling out these days. The only solution to defeat Assad, who is one of the worst guys ever for whatever reason and the responsibility of America, is to vote Hillary in 2016.
