The New Democrats and Liberals both declared their opposition in the House of Commons to the extension and expansion of the Iraq mission by expressing common concerns about a dubious alliance they say that would be formed between our government and Syria’s Bashar Al-Assad.
These concerns of a Canadian alliance with Bashar Al-Assad are alarmist -- and also inaccurate.
Concerns over helping Assad, by undercutting his opposition in ISIS, is shortsighted and would be to put Canadian lives at risk. ISIS is expansionist, unlike Assad. They present a global threat, and Canada is not immune.
This isn’t about choosing a side in a civil war in Syria. This is about dismantling and eradicating the cancer that is ISIS.
How many more lives will be lost before Mulcair and Trudeau wake up to that reality?
