    Default Trudeau to Obama: Canada to pull out of bombing campaign against ISIS

    "Canada has lost its compassionate and constructive voice in the world"

    Canada's new leader-in-waiting says he intends to follow through on his campaign promise to pull the country out of the U.S.-led bombing campaign against ISIS militants in Syria and Iraq.

    Justin Trudeau, who led the Liberal Party to a stunning victory in elections Monday, said he has already told U.S. President Barack Obama of his plans.

    "He understands the commitments I've made around ending the combat mission," Trudeau told reporters Tuesday, without giving a time frame for when Canada's airstrikes would stop.

    Trudeau is expected to take office in the coming weeks, replacing Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who sent Canadian warplanes to carry out airstrikes against ISIS.

    Canada's bombing raids started hitting the Islamic extremist group's positions in Iraq in November 2014 and expanded into Syria in April.

    As of last week, Canada's six Hornet fighters in the region had flown 1,046 sorties in the anti-ISIS operation, according to the military, which didn't specify how many of the flights involved airstrikes. Other aircraft have conducted hundreds of refueling and reconnaissance missions.

    not at all surprising and likely a pretty popular first decision. Most Canadians would rather we have nothing to do with that part of the world to be honest. We have our own oil. When they figure out how to act like actual civil nations they can call us.

    Makes sense to me. I'd actually support pulling all presence out of the middle east, closing all immigration from the middle east, stopping all travel to the middle east, and never buy another drop of oil from them. Isolate the entire region and let them live in their 10th century wonderland. We (the west) can come back in 50 years when they are extinct and build some resorts there.

    Easier said than done, but I agree with you in principle!
    Good points and good strategy.
