Job not done

Veteran frustrated that the federal government is withdrawing from ISIS air strikes

With regards to the tragic news from Paris and the war against ISIS in Syria and the world over, I am appalled to hear that our prime minister intends to pull our air force out of action.

Canadian forces to not leave a job unfinished. From personal experience in the Second World War, Canadians do not back out. Were our Canadian boys consulted about this? I doubt it.

Their job is far from finished, and I know what their answer will be.

Granted, they would sooner be at home with their families but their sense of duty will demand they finish the job at hand.

They are doing an admirable job, so please allow them to complete their assignment. Mr. Trudeau, butt out and let them finish the battle for the freedom of the civilized world.
