Canada’s National Defense has drawn up at least five scenarios for the country’s military mission in Syria, according to documents obtained by the Ottawa Citizen.
In one scenario, Canada recognizes “a legitimate armed opposition group” fighting to overthrow the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
To justify a war on Syria, the National Defense alludes to “the rapidly deteriorating conditions in Syria, its impact on neighboring countries and … the importance of Middle East stability.”
Daniel Blouin, spokesman for the National Defense, has described such plans as “routine to significant international events.”
Separate documents reveal that Canada has been training alternatives to Assad’s government.
This is beyond ridiculous. What'll we invade with, 50 year old Sea Kings and one sub permanently docked? Friggin West Edmonton Mall has more submarines than the Canadian Navy.
