Action needed in Middle East

I think there is unanimous agreement among democratic countries that the medieval ISIS must be stopped, preferably in Iraq and Syria.

Given the scale of sectarian violence in the Middle East, I’m sure it will take more than dropping bombs to bring about peace over there. But as for “why Canada is going to war without Parliament’s debate and approval,” I’d say that’s because we have a government that recognizes when action is necessary.

And when people are just looking for any excuse to denigrate Prime Minister Stephen Harper or the government, I’m a bit surprised that they would pick this particular subject.
