Leaked: Canada trains alternatives to radical groups in Syria
Tue Apr 15, 2014 19:03:05

New leaked reports show that Canada’s pro-Israeli government has been considering to attack Syria which has been suffering from an extensive foreign-charged war for more than three years.

Documents obtained by the Ottawa Citizen show Canadian National Defense has drawn up at least five scenarios in which it could become involved in Syria’s war, as well as potential Canadian Forces missions for each situation.

The documents have been censored to remove specifics, but allude to “the rapidly deteriorating conditions in Syria, its impact on neighboring countries and … the importance of Middle East stability.”

The scenarios also include several assumptions such as the Syrian government remaining “defiant,” as well as “most likely” and “worst case” outcomes, such as extremist groups getting hold of advanced or chemical weapons, or the conflict spilling beyond Syria’s borders.

At least one possible Canadian military intervention “assumes that a legitimate armed opposition group has been recognized” by Canada, although details about the rest of this scenario have been blacked out.

National Defense spokesman Daniel Blouin described such planning as “routine to significant international events”.

Meanwhile, separate documents show Canada has been helping train political alternative to replace radical groups after they get to topple the Syrian government.

Syria sank into war in March 2011 when pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of Western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
