We keep hearing this idiocy about how Canadians are "training" peshmerga fighters.
The peshmerga fighters have done way more fighting in the last twenty years than the Canadians have done, with arguably way better outcomes.
So why do they need us to train them?
The reason is that our training mission is part of the overall NATO strategy to make everybody else in the world dependant on NATO to boost whatever wars of convenience (convenience for NATO) they may happen to be waging at the moment.
All NATO wars are wars of choice, not wars of self defence.
NATO "trainers" are just another way to keep the fires burning.
