So far the consensus is that we have no real purpose over there except to shore up support for our trigger happy neighbors. There is no threat other than what the USA has created through foreign policy.
Harper's march to war is not an overly popular thing. He may have have over reached His support this time.There is little chance that ISIS can shoot down an F-18 unless it acquires the weapons. So Harper is gambling on cutting Canadian losses, but at what price in honor will it be worth it for Canada to roll over to the side of the problem makers to try to make a lie stand?
