If ISIS terrorists fire on Canadian troops, ‘we’ll kill them’: Harper

OTTAWA – Prime Minister Stephen Harper made it clear that if ISIS terrorists fire at Canadian troops, “we’re going to kill them.”

Harper’s was responding to media questions in St. Catharines, Ont., on Thursday about whether the nature of the Canadian mission in Iraq would shift to more of a combat role.

“This is a robust mission where (Canadian Forces) are going to make (Iraqi Security Forces) effective to take on the Islamic State and deal with them,” he said. “And if those guys fire at us, we’re going to fire back and we’re going to kill them.”

        ‘Cold winter training’…hey, Justin, nice hair.

  • bverwey

    But, but….. they wouldn’t be firing on us if we gave them proper winter clothing.

    Simple, direct answers such as this are what is needed more from all Conservative MP’s and MPP’s. They need to call out lying liberals/socialists, when they lie, and speak bluntly about what should be done with people who want to destroy us and our way of life. They also need to make similar comments about the pathetic state of our justice system.

    Most Canadians (actually the vast majority) agree with this type of blunt and honest response to media inquiries. Of course tomorrow all the bleeding-heart MSM media will be on the attack trying to say otherwise.

    • I am certain there are tears flowing at the Globe Star and CBC already.

      • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

        Folks like Justin and those at the Globe, Star, and CBC wouldn’t mind seeing Canadian soldiers killed by ISIS fighters because it would give them another reason to bash PM Harper.

        Put, differently they hate Harper more than they care about Canadian soldiers.

        • I bet they’d salivate at the prospect.

          • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

            That’s the conclusion I’ve come to after reading the Toronto Star’s and others’, Trudeau included, negative & spinless responses to our soldiers having to exchange gunfire with ISIS terrorists trying to kill them.

    “”I specifically asked him in the House of Commons whether or not Canadian Forces would be targeting troops on the other side,” NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair said this week. “He did not tell the truth.””
    More accurately: “English very hard for me.”


    • The Socialist Cockup has spoken!

      • winniec

        Mulcair is putting soldiers in greater danger by revealing disunity.

    • Clausewitz

      Well Mulcair is a dual citizen of France, so don’t expect him to grow a pair and actually defend either the country of Canada, or it’s Citizens.

        The French military invented Parkour, or Free Running, after all.

    Ah yes the ayes have it. Once again Justine shows his bedroom eyes and all the teenyboppers and assorted liberal females (and gays) swoon

    • And How!

      • winniec

        Great hair! Now that’s an election platform.

        • occupant 9

          Oh he really does have great hair! That’s the tip of this intellectual iceberg.

          • The Sheeple

            That is too funny

          • Canadian

            Yeah! Eight tenths of his hair is inside.

            Actually nine-teths

    Damn right.

    The claymation version of Justin Trudeau! http://i.ytimg.com/vi/0mVYeJZrD2s/hqdefault.jpg

    The NDP and Liberals should be making their complaints in committee. They are giving comfort to the enemy. This is an act of treachery against our troops putting them at greater risk…all for the sake of electioneering.
    I deplore their clueless behaviour.

    • They are playing to their base – The Media.

      • Clausewitz

        I think you mean the other M word, you know their voter base.

      • David Murrell

        …and the Jew-hating, terrorist-loving Islamists — a core constituency for JT.

  • Gary Dickson

    The reason that orthodox Muslims are being more and more successful is that most Western leaders and media are acting like scared puppies and the orthodox Muslims smell blood.

    Orthodox Muslims don’t mess with, for example, Mr. Putin because he’ll take their heads off if they do. And they know that.

    So, I suspect that Mr. Harper is taking a playbook from either Mr. Churchill or Mr. Putin. Or perhaps even better, Kevin Vickers.

  • cmh

    someone should tell harper that in order to kill anyone you must be better armed than the enemy.. bring home our military to guard canada

  • What was truly funny was that the CBC lackey- I mean- reporter wanted to catch Harper in some sort of trap.


  • Canadian

    French Radio Canada made a fuss over what Harper said in french, compared with what he said in english.
    In french, he said we fire back, and in english he said we kill them.
    Same thing to me…

  • simus1

    As a way to underline what is what, perhaps Canadians who find P.M. Harper’s stance somewhat refreshing could chip in and present him with a decorative item to grace the mantelpiece at 24 Sussex.

    And to avoid Shiny Pony and Tommy Malcair, plus others feeling left out:

    Why not something equally suitable?


  • marty_p

    Maybe if we gave them Canada Goose jackets to keep warm, they’d leave us alone?

  • Bobd06

    What about the warm coats?

  • David Murrell

    Great pic of Mr. Trudeau. The large bug eyes remind me of a forgettable, and cheaply-made, sci-fi flick called “Killers from Space” (1954), starring Peter Graves (a film I’m sure he wanted to forget):

    In it, the bad aliens had golf-ball sized eyes as props. Laughable as hell.

    Looks like Lennon!
