Justin Trudeau: A Neocon Delight?

Canada will send more military trainers to Iraq to support local troops combatting the Islamic State group, Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau, has announced.

“We will continue to do more than our share, including a military engagement, but especially in training rather than airstrikes,” he said on Tuesday.

“I’ve committed repeatedly to my allies that we were going to do more on the training front and that means obviously more than just 69 trainers” currently on the ground in northern Iraq.

“There is no question that this is not going be a short engagement,” Trudeau added.

And CBC News reports:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau delivered a blunt message during a brief chat with Russian President Vladimir Putin: back off Ukraine.
 "I pointed out that although Canada has shifted its approach on a broad range of multilateral and international issues, we remain committed to the fact that Russia's interference in Ukraine must cease; that we stand with the Ukrainian people and expect the president to engage fully in the Minsk peace process," he said.



  1. Did we expect him to denounce Obama for installing Nazis in Ukraine?

    All this plus even more Global Warming hysteria!

  2. Ooooh, Vlad must be shaking in his boots!

  3. Oh look another leftist who campaigns on being anti-war and then continues war just indirectly. Gee who didnt see that coming.

  4. He got elected, now it's time to "tow the line".
