In terms of advancing the cause of democracy, Canada also loses to Syria. Whereas government controlled areas of Syria hold elections -- the most recent Presidential elections had a participation rate of 73% and President al-Assad won a majority with 88% of the vote -- Canada supports the terrorist occupied areas --- of which none holds elections.

Freedoms of speech, of dissent, of religion, are all showcased in government-held areas of Syria, in contrast to terrorist occupied areas, where children are indoctrinated in the teaching of Wahhabism, where misogyny is rampant, Sharia law is practiced, and ethnic cleansing is common.

So in terms of advancing the causes of freedom, democracy, and the rule of law; in terms of protecting human rights; and in terms of actually fighting rather than engaging in terrorism, Syria far outstrips Canada.

Our government projects a false international image of promoting liberty, freedom, and democracy, as we deny and abrogate those same values every single day.

The Canadian government and its agencies also propagandize Canadian citizens, so we too are victimized by our government's degeneracy.

If Syrians were to announce the need for regime change against Canada, and then proceed to flood our country with foreign-backed terrorist mercenaries, we might have a better appreciation for what Syrians are forced to endure, thanks to our efforts.

The reality of government-sponsored false flag terrorism is a concern, but for the most part, Canadians are free to live their lives unhampered by reasonable fears of foreign mercenary terrorists, the thunder of Hell Cannon mortars, and the rattle of assault rifles.

War is terrorism.
War is terrorism.
