How much more confirmation does one need?
"Plus it was 2 days after a 1 Canadian soldier was killed and 1 wounded after being run over by an Islamist just outside of Montreal."

I see.
Well. As you said, we will see more of this...

Unlike London, that Islamist won't be getting 3 square meals a day & allowed to bend over 5 times a day facing north!

Expect more of this, now that Canada joins coalition.

The attack on the parliament came just minutes after an honor guard was shot dead at the Tomb of Unknown Soldier near the parliament building!

Canada's turn to get hit by the worst bug in modern history...

...the bureaucratic answer to everything

"The UK recently launched a study into the Muslim Brotherhood to better understand the nature of the group.

At this point, Canada needs to have a similar national-level inquiry into both violent and non-violent extremists who are developing values which run contrary to the constitution and the Charter of Rights."

The Muslim Brotherhood has been around for Decades (Century's under different names).
The UK is NOW interested? WHAT?

The UK has always been interested in the Middle East.
In many senses UK is responsible for the mess in the region.
By drawing borders and creating "nations" not known to the local peoples.

Much of Sub-Sahara Africa too.
Just more European Country's involved.

Sub-Sahara Africa :)
Do you mean Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti and Somalia?

janneseti... Will remember to be more specific when responding to YOUR posts.
Should have been basically West, Central, and Southern Africa.
East African Country's Changing of Boarders, are the normal changes, over the Millennium's, due to Wars and Conquests.
The Country of South Africa is an anomaly. Yes it is a European Boarder. But, with ALL its problems. May possibly be successful.
Edit: The West, South etc. are not 100% correct. Just in general.

Have you seen Jay Walking? It's Jay Leno asking people on street about basic geography.
A more serious poll was done about it.
It turns out that 10% of US Citizens can't point out USA on a map:)

Even their own people in Syria.

Kurdish Peshmerga forces are expected to enter Kobane through Turkey, in the coming hours.
It's expected to be around 200 soldiers, equipped with heavy weapons, such as anti-tank missiles and artillery.
This new force is going to give the ISIS Jihadists something to think about.
"Run for the hills ISIS, run for the hills"

Biji Kurdistan:)

http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article19750859.ab#
The 200 hundred soldiers are equiped with AK4s and RPGs and trained by Germany militaries.
Sounds like the Swedish army:)
I'm also trained with those weapons.

If true, NATO has some serious questions to ask...

NATO Member State officials cosy up to ISIS

Meanwhile...

Geneva Convention be damned

...Lovely support from the coalition

Turkey is a NATO member.
Turkey also dont like kurds for some reasons.
Kurds doesn't speek arabic or turkish. It's more like Farsi.
They are not allowed to speek kurdish in Turkey.
Often children get slaped in their face on the streets by turks if doing so!

The Islamitic State hate kurds!

They won't. A bunch of countries have already stated they would veto it on principle. Also, they are far from reaching all the requirements necessary to join the EU.
