Iraq mission a matter of ‘moral clarity’ for Canada, foreign affairs minister says

Extending Canada’s military mission in Iraq is a matter of “moral clarity” that all political parties should support, Foreign Affairs Minister Rob Nicholson says. In a carefully crafted speech to foreign diplomats on Thursday, Mr. Nicholson‎ set out the Conservative government’s case for boosting Canada’s role in the U.S.-led coalition. He argued that Islamic State extremists present a danger to the region and a direct threat to Canada and its allies that could grow quickly if it’s left unchecked.

…“He will ask them to support our government’s operation to degrade and destabilize this gang of thugs, and in doing so, strip ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant] of its power to threaten the security of the region or to launch terrorist operations in Canada,” Mr. Nicholson said.


Hmmm… Let’s see…  a quick and dirty list of reasons why we shouldn’t

Christians, Yazidis etc are near toast already, this extension won’t save them.

I have little faith in our “Muslim Allies” on any matter.

Iran has been given virtual carte blanche in Iraq.

Airstrikes alone won’t defeat ISIS.

The Islamic world already hates us, whether we’re in or out of Iraq won’t save us from future acts of domestic Muslim diversity.

ISIS is in Canada already. It’s called Islam.

Unless the world is ready to take out all the Muslim terror states in one fell swoop it’s a no go for me.

Until our government is willing to declare a moratorium on Muslim immigration, it’s a non-starter.

This is a Muslim civil war, let them have at it.
