Western allies plan major assault to ‘collapse’ ISIS strongholds

Western allies bombing Iraq and Syria in an attempt to defeat Islamic State jihadists are planning major assaults to “collapse” its two main centres, Raqqa and Mosul, defence ministers said yesterday.

At a summit in Paris, Michael Fallon, the Defence Secretary, Ashton Carter, his American opposite number, and those of five other western powers agreed on renewed attempts to break the group, which they said was in retreat.

I suspect the coalition has been well briefed on Justin’s 5th Columnist Omar Alghabra.

Omar Alghabra caf-2

  • Ron MacDonald

    He’s probably the main reason Canada has been snubbed.

  • Brett_McS

    Isn’t he the guy on the cover of Mad Magazine?

    • Shure looks like it to me.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      Don’t insult me and compare me to Omar, that Islamist buddy of Emperor Justin.

    Look at that phony mug….what a country…..what a PM….our reputation and credibility shredded in 3 months…..sell us out to the Muslim vote…..wear pyjamas and pray in a mosque….then charge the taxpayer to pay the freight for hundreds of thousands of fifth columnists to throw our social services budget into the red huge.
    This is turning into a nightmare and it’s only begun.

    Always tell the isis enemy what you are going to do before you do it.
    Maybe they think it over and beg to get back in the “O” gang.
