New Canadian PM First action: Canada Withdrawing Jets from Iraq & Syria


New Canadian PM First action: Canada Withdrawing Jets from Iraq and Syria (Telegraph).

Canada's prime minister-elect Justin Trudeau said Tuesday he told US President Barack Obama that Canadian fighter jets would withdraw from fighting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.
But he gave no timeline.

"About an hour ago I spoke with President Obama," Trudeau told a press conference.

While Canada remains "a strong member of the coalition against ISIL," Trudeau said he made clear to the US leader "the commitments I have made around ending the combat mission."

Canada last year deployed CF-18 fighter jets to the region until March 2016, as well as about 70 special forces troops to train Kurds in northern Iraq.

During the campaign, Trudeau pledged to bring home the fighter jets and end its combat mission. But he vowed to keep military trainers in place.

His new Liberal government will be "moving forward with our campaign commitments in a responsible fashion," Trudeau said.

Obama's first call was to the Palestinian pres Abbas, Trudeau's first call go's to Obama. As usual the military is 'betrayed' by the politician. I'm sure ISIS And Qatar are celebrating....Thank God Putin is still there.
