A smart IS strategy – except for the air strikes

A smart IS strategy – except for the air strikes - The Globe and Mail

The decision to increase the existing level of support to Iraqi Kurdish troops is probably the right one, but it carries short-term benefits in exchange for longer term costs. The Kurds are among the coalition’s most reliable partners in fighting IS; in the short-term, they deserve support. Looking farther ahead, however, the wisdom of boosting a sub-state actor with secessionist aspirations plays against Canada’s support for a stable and united Iraq. This could also eventually be a source of tension with Turkey, a NATO ally at war with its own Kurdish insurgency.

Cuz the Messiah is always looking at the big picture ahead...

Perhaps bear is unaware that Turkey has been fighting against the Kurds for a long time while the Kurds have been pounding ISIS.
Is this how a flip-flop looks when the writing is on the wall?

Does the truth hurt bear??

I'd say perhaps you can't read, but there's no perhaps about it.

No, this is how you look like an idiot, as usual.

I doubt your version of 'interests in Syria or Iraq' match that of our PM. That is why he is in office and you are low on the totem pole.

Perhaps you missed the part where our bombing was usually some target that assisted ISIS rather than it being a step to defeating them. It is you that has the comprehension problem

Your problems are too many to list. (other than being a plant to promote lies as being facts, do you really think people believe your bull****?)

Another one of your stellar rebuttals bear. lol

Your only problem is that you're an idiot. All your other failings and issues stem from that.

The Atlantist coalition of dog fornicators has been humping the Kurdish leg way to long, the Russians will position Kurdistan right in the middle of the Middle East including parts of the smoldering rubble of Turkey.

Uh, no. Really bad choice other than there needs to be a change just to show that losing a war is far worse than starting one.
