Also our Canadain troops help the French troops out. Presently they are helping in having one of the rare trasport aircraft of troops, food, medical needs or armoured vehicles. Now France is asking for Cdn Trooops to help them in Mal;i, whiile the leader seems to be the sort of person that will sut down a refinery or any business & still say they are safe, but not the real truth as it has been showen before. He feels he can be another war Lord like Bin Laden the Americans had to put to his death & no more wrong doings to innocent workers.

The US will keep Patriot missiles and F-16 fighter jets in Jordan after a military exercise, angering Russia. Pentagon spokesman George Little said the US enjoyed "a long-standing partnership with Jordan" and was "committed to its defence". He said all other US military personnel would leave Jordan next week.

It's going to be a long hot summer in the Middle East. Tensions are high and growing each day, and no doubt a lot will be nervous having
them around.

It's a lot hotter and will not be cooling down anytime soon. People thought things were changing for the good, and instead it took a sharp turn south and ugly doesn't begin to cover what is happening and will continue to happen for a while.

An Australian newspaper on Monday published a photograph of a child it said was the son of an Australian convicted terrorist holding aloft the severed head of a Syrian soldier. Prime Minister Tony Abbott told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio that the photograph was further evidence of "just how barbaric" the Islamic State group is. The Australian newspaper reported that the photograph of terrorist Khaled Sharrouf's son, who was raised in Sydney, was posted on Twitter by his proud father. ... -1.1954307

This is beyond disturbing, and three kids lives are destroyed by the nutcases they call mom and dad. But what about the brother who helped him escape, shouldn't he face some jail time for helping this terrorist escape, plus how did he get the mother and 3 kids out without raising red flags?

Were they only looking out for daddy, and did not put the wife and kids on the list in case he tried to leave with them? What ever happened, these kids futures are going to be nothhing but violence that is if they live long enough to see adult hood.

Yea, well those "nutcases" will do a lot of damage before they pay a heavy price for what they have done. Like the old saying goes - what goes around, comes around, and their time is coming, just not fast enough to prevent mass killings. Paranoia, mistrust rules them and sooner or later the supporters will turn on each other. Their perfect brutal world is fragile, it can't hold on when they will never be satisfied with their main goal. If and when the accomplish that, they will not be happy to just live their lives, they will always look for the next war to fight. Peace means nothing to them.

They are ruled by violence, paranoia and mistrust, so their perfect world of one hardline islam state will never happen. Mainly because they will never agree on the perfect islam state, there will always be disagreements and turning on each other. A waste that will cost many innocent lives including their innocent children dragged into this because they don't know any better and are probably terrified to speak up or run off.

A young boys body on a beach, thousands trying to board trains to a new uncertain life is showing the world, we need to step up to the plate and find a way to solve this. Some are blaming war and ISIS for this mess, but they are not responsible for the civil war that started in Syria. A ruthless dictator determined to stop citizens from over throwing his government has led to many deaths and he has blood on his hands. Some say he is more ruthless than his father and he doesn't care if he destroys the country as long as he stays in power. Fast forward and those trying to escape are so desperate they will risk it all including children to find some freedom, enjoy democracy and live without fear from a brutal dictator.

The death of that boy has impacted Canada and the government is hoping to shift blame from themselves to ISIS, which makes no sense since ISIS wasn't there when the civil war broke out. The father lost his 2 boys and wife and has family in Canada.

The English narrated video that talks about the Syrian refugees leaving the country and seeking safety in nearby countries or in the European Union. The animation is a six-minute summation of events over the past four years in the Middle East and provides reasons (and even mentions some concerns others raise) why Western nations should assist the refugees. ... -une-video

Thanks to Courrier International for tweeting about the video on their Twitter account today.
