In terms of international law, human rights, the fight against terrorism, and common decency, Syria wins, hands down.
Syria, which ranked amongst the top 5 countries globally as a "safe" destination prior to the pre-planned western-launched dirty war, puts Canada to shame.
It has been well-documented for years that the pre-planned war on Syria is illegal according to international laws, resolutions, and conventions. Not only does the Canadian Defense Minister's earlier pronouncement that "President Assad, he does need to go amount to an endorsement for illegal regime change against a sovereign, non-belligerent, U.N member country, but Canada's membership in NATO and Canada's proven complicity in regime change operations amounts to the height of criminality according to Nuremburg standards.
Additionally, United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254 states that "(t)he Syrian people will decide the future of Syria," and United Nations Security Council Resolution 2253 imposes:
".."asset freeze, travel ban, arms embargo and listing criteria for ISIL, Al-Qaida and 'associated individuals, groups, undertaking and entities. "
Not only is Canada's regime-change mission against Syria entirely illegal, but our huge military hardware contract with Wahhabi Saudi Arabia implicates Canada further, especially since Saudi Arabia is a chief financier to the terrorists invading Syria.
And now that our staunch ally the U.S openly admits to supporting Al Qaeda/Al Nursra Front terrorists in Syria, we are even further implicated by association.
