Canadians fighting in Syria

Some of these Canadians are converted Muslims and part of extremists group such as Al-Qaeda. One thing you can say about Assad is that he kept these kinds of extremists out of Syria. Now is U.S. going to support these groups and similar extremists? It is hard to understand why would they do that.

Before the invasion of Iraq, Saddam Hussein kept extremists out of Iraq, especially Al-Qaeda. Now I believe there are a large number of Al-Qaeda, or individuals sympathetic to Al-Qaeda, in Iraq. I don't understand the foreign policy of the U.S or, for that matter, Canada. We seem to be supporting and defending extremists.

  1. Current U.S. foreign policy is easy to understand. Yes, they support extremists, and they always have. The CIA created the al-Qaeda extremists to fight the Russians. The Libyan rebels were al-Qaeda as well.

    Here is a good starting point:

    Though to really understand you must go all the way back to 9/11:

    Set aside any preconceptions of foreign policy you've had up until this date. Wipe the slate clean, and reanalyze NATO actions ever since the events of 9/11 (and even prior to that).

    Look at a map of the middle east and where U.S. bases are placed. Look at that same map and look at the locations of the countries where U.S. "intervention" has already occurred. The first step to understanding their foreign policy is to understand that everything they say are lies and that they crossed the "red line" long ago.
