Except Canada was there. We had three frigates and a destroyer as part of multinational Task Force 151, in which the Canadians were in command. Canadians also worked at US Central Command in Qatar. Plus troops and officers that were on exchange with US and British forces. CAF pilots under NORAD flew combat missions into Iraq with the USAF E-3 Sentry. CAF pilots also flew C-17 supply runs into Iraq.

Kind'a like Vietnam. Officially we weren't involved. Unofficially we sure as hell were. And while other Canadian Forces were originally in Iraq for advisory and training purposes when Harper sent them, Trudeau upped the ante and allowed them to be used in direct combat, particularly in support of the Peshmerga.

Having said that, I agree that we shouldn't have been there at all. Hardly makes me a leader though. "Oh gee, I had an independent thought. Vote for me this fall".

Actually, I found out much later, that my brother was there in an "advisory" capacity when he was in the CF. He hated it!

People forget there was a close provincial election going on in Quebec, and the citizens were dead set against going to Iraq. Chretien didn't want to offend the Pepsi's and tarnish the Liberal brand...which is the only reason he chose not to follow the Yanks into Iraq.

Face it- Chretien had HIT THE DEBT WALL and needed the good will of Yankees to BORROW MORE GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And Chretien was having trouble doing that Kiss and Make up with Yankees because Canada was AGAIN WEARING the NATO SLACKER LABEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The NATO SLACKER LABEL CAME OFF during the time of Stephen Harper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But the SLACKER LABEL has been RE-APPLIED thanks to Our idiot Boy Justin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And how better to suck up to Yankees than for Chretien to offer up some worn out equipment that WENT INTO THE SECOND LINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes- the RUSTED OUT RCN played BACKUP to the real NATO NAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It is worth pointing out that the ships sent by Chretien to patrol the Persian Gulf were THE BEST WE HAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Those two destroyers- plus a supply ship were supposed to be COMBAT READY ON A MOMENTS NOTICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


They were SUPPOSED to be ready to sail and confront the SOVIET RUSSIAN Navy AT ANY TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And yet- before they could go to the SECOND LINE in the Persian Gulf and watch for Iraqi and maybe Iranian missile carrying MOTORBOATS- the Cdn destroyers SPENT SIX MONTHS IN DRY DOCK being REPAIRED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And they had assorted anti aircraft weapons ADDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals apparently think the best way to stand on guard for Canada is to bury us so deep in debt that nobody in their right mind will mess with us in any way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wasn't it also reported after that he had close ties with a French company doing business in Iraq that was against the war?

Burnaby, BC – As results came in from the Burnaby by-election, members
of the federal NDP were disheartened to learn that they would be stuck
with Jagmeet Singh as their leader for the 2019 election.

“We were out there everyday working hard to sabotage his campaign,”
said one disappointed NDP insider who worked on Singh’s campaign.
“We had [former NDP Leader] Thomas Mulcair accuse him of international
war crimes on national television, handed out Jehovah Witness material
instead of campaign flyers, and spread a rumour that he wants to build
nuclear weapons to blast baby whales out of the Strait of Georgia
and force vegans to eat their radio-active carcasses.’”

“No matter how hard we tried to backstab him to save our chances in
Quebec, nothing seemed to connect,” said a woman wearing ‘Elect
Jagmeet Singh’ t-shirt. “I even tried to kick him down the stairs forgetting
he has an excellent balance thanks to his jiu jitsu training.”

Dozens of despondent supporters flanked the newly elected NDP leader
during his electoral victory speech as he promised more affordable housing
and a progressive alternative to Justin Trudeau.

“We signed up a whole bunch of people to vote against Singh and drove
them to the polls,” said one dumbfounded partisan. “Now we’re doomed
to be a weak third party in Parliament, instead of a moderately strong
third party like we’ve been dreaming about.”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


OH COME ON HOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


ADMIT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


You have GIVEN UP ANY PRETENSE of logical or factual comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



You are now just saying STUPID STUFF just to try to annoy people since you no longer have ANY HOPE of saving your idiot Boy or his LIE-beral losers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Sadly you do not recall LIE-beral CHRETIEN OFFERING Cdn military for the Iraq war!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And being TURNED DOWN as we had NOTHING USEFUL to offer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cdn military under LIE-berals had rotted out so completely that Cdn troops would have REQUIRED PROPERLY EQUIPPED British or Yankee or French BABY SITTERS to keep them safe from threats they were not equipped either to see coming or to deal with effectively!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And yes- RCN DID eventually send 2 destroyers to Persian Gulf..............INTO THE SECOND STRING to deal with any Iranian motorboats that made threatening moves and suicide runs against oil tankers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Yankees were afraid that Iranians might decide to make trouble with their little missile boats when Iraq was attacked and so wanted some cover just in case!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And those 2 RCN ships SPENT SIX MONTHS IN DRY DOCK ..................and HAD WEAPONS ADDED for effective defense against little Iranian missile boats and aircraft- before sailing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Stephen Harper is the most LIED ABOUT politician in Cdn history.............................and the LIE-beral record of Harper LIES CONTINUES UNABATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!
