Canadian special forces make martyrs of ISIS scumbags

Ottawa (AFP) – Canadian special forces exchanged gunfire with Islamic State fighters in Iraq in recent days, in the first confirmed ground battle between Western troops and IS, a senior officer said Monday.

The Canadians came under mortar and machine gun fire while training Iraqi troops near front lines and shot back in what Canadian special forces commander Brigadier General Michael Rouleau described as self-defense, killing the IS fighters.

Rouleau said the melee had taken place in the previous seven days and was “the first time we’ve taken fire and returned fire” in Iraq, where the extremists have overrun large areas.

“My troops had completed a planning session with senior Iraqi leaders several kilometers behind the front lines,” Rouleau told a regular media briefing on the conflict.

    Justin Trudeau will be front and centre about this development, no doubt. Complaining that the Canadian Special forces shot back at the koran reading Islamic thugs which will upset the “moderate” muslims who……Laugh track here……..are not in any way, at all affiliated with this band of bloodthirsty typical islamic followers. He will then call for a special committee be set up to investigate the deaths of the muslims.

    AND I hope that, among the dead muslims there are some islamic-Canadians.

    Unless the ridiculous hands tied behind our back “Rules of Engagement” are thrown out we will never win this war! We should be shooting first then asking questions. Lets get back to the good old “Body Count” method of the Vietnam days.

    So nice to see we have Brigade level officers like Rouleau. Maybe this act will shut the whining and bitching of Romeo Dellaire. This incident shows the proper way that a ranking officer in the field acts, instead of waiting for UN beaurocrats.
