CDN armed forces in Iraq
Is "training" a euphemism of some sort?
According to CTV news back in 2016 there were "approximately 830" Canadian military personnel stationed in Iraq for "training" purposes in the war against ISIS.
Now, as if it were some kind of new idea, Canada is sending 250 troops to Iraq for training purposes:
Let's talk about "transition": Iraq "transitioned" out of stability because of Western actions in 2003. Information Clearing House keeps a running tab on the freakish costs still being incurred in dollars and the obscene number of Iraqi lives lost.
After all this time, it seems doubtful that peace is the key aim here, especially when goaded by Trump's complaints about the US doing all the hard work.
You might understand the following better than I: (underlining mine)
I suppose it means some 250 troops are being returned home (they must be tired after all that failed training), so while it sounds good that 250 troops are being sent, it isn't really an increase, is it? Is Trump really so easily placated?
Of course, when you think of the oil and how the US loves oil, one might surmise that finding reasons to stay in Iraq would be a given, especially since NATO (the great peace bringer) seems to approve. And Canada being part of NATO means we are also a part of the problem for Iraqis.
This is sad, especially since over a year ago ... Reuters:
It's good optics to be seen to have won a war, while NATO is perpetually "cleaning up" in order to stay in the game and retain virtual control of the territory.

We are never really sure just who ISIS (Daesh) is although, in Syria, it certainly appears they have operated as virtual agents of the US who want to keep things going over there on behalf of the dream of "Greater Israel".

Speaking of Israel: The US sends Israel billions of dollars each year in "defense aid", which Israel uses (in large part) to buy weaponry from the US. Nice work if you can get it.

Meanwhile, the US national debt is beyond the ordinary American's ability to comprehend:

You can Google "US National Debt" and see that it's a big concern to market watchers.
All money worries aside, the enemies business is a lucrative one for certain beneficiaries. The "military/industrial complex" depends upon it. Filthy rich Americans owe their wealth to death and destruction elsewhere.
The Pentagon can't - won't - account for missing trillions of dollars. You can Google "Pentagon missing trillions" and judge for yourself if this true or not. Meanwhile:
TheNation: ... the DoD’s financial records were riddled with so many bookkeeping deficiencies, irregularities, and errors that a reliable audit was simply impossible.
Medals will no doubt be handed out for that. Budding accountants might wish to study the fine art of "nippering"; it could mean a job at the Pentagon.
But rest assured, Canada's military deployments are all about "peacekeeping and security". We know this because our government wouldn't lie:
How informative is that, eh? Basically, Canada does only good in the world; our hands are clean as a riot whistle.
With regard to the amazing technical prowess of Daesh/ISIS, make of the following what you will, but note this section: The US government did not reply to multiple requests for comment on how these weapons wound up in the hands of Syrian rebels or in an ISIS munitions factory ... Other countries seem to be purchasing and diverting arms as well.
