Hon. Rob Nicholson, you are wrong. "Moral Clarity" would have been if you had raised your voice when a genocide was going on in Gaza courtesy your friends in Israel
We have no business interfering in Iraq or Syria. It is the USA's problem which the USA has brought about due to their Israel-lead foreign policies. Let Canada's bosom pals like Saudi Arabia, UAE and the rest of the Sunni nations along with Israel ... handle the situation there. Everybody and even their dead uncles know that Canada venturing into conflicts in the Middle East has nothing to do with "moral clarity" ... as if the governments of the West cry their eyes out for the unfortunate folks in those regions.
Nicholson lies about "moral clarity" when heart of hearts he knows just like everybody else, that going into the Middle East conflicts have nothing to do with morality concerns but everything to do with geopolitical changes and most of those reasons are to do with USA and Israel.
When politicians tell these bold-faced lies, their credibility and the credibility of their party, goes down several notches.

Mr. Nicholson’s comments lay the groundwork for the government’s proposal to the House of Commons next week, when Prime Minister Stephen Harper will ask MPs to support a plan to expand and extend the current six-month mission. The pre-emptive speech, aimed at about 50 foreign diplomats and delivered before a group of journalists, sought to place pressure on federal opposition parties, who have questioned the scope of Canada’s involvement.
It was the latest salvo in an extended campaign that saw federal ministers hint repeatedly at plans to renew the military commitment. Mr. Harper said Wednesday that he would seek approval for the extension, a revelation that came in the middle of a break week on Parliament Hill, at a time when many MPs had returned to their ridings........
