Let's be clear: while a sarin gas attack is a disgusting breach of international law and of humanity itself, in responding with military force outside of any formal war the United States has breached more international laws than the gas attack did. We should not be lulled into some sense that unilateral military action is OK.

We have a problem, rather, a preoccupation with power. It is human nature to want and crave it, but the ways we get it and keep it are usually inhumane. The simplest, most base feeling of power is that of physical might. The ability to defeat one's foes in combat.

Donald Trump is a traitor to his nation and its constitution. He is a thug and a demagogue. He is an Internet troll, elevated to the Oval Office. But on NATO, and on the requisite contributions to NATO, he is right. Because we don't pay our way in NATO, and we haven't for a long time. And we need to.

PM cites Canada's leadership in Latvia.
The pressures on Canadian interests abroad will be significant, so long as the United States remains the guarantor of Canadian national security and the major partner in economic prosperity. So what does the U.S. election mean for Canada in the world?

Amongst our generals and military advisers there is a consensus that we need a new fighter-bomber to provide these functions for Canada. But amongst the chattering classes there is a virtual free-for-all about not just which aircraft should be purchased, but how we should go about getting one.
Clinton will find herself tempted to flex her muscles as America's first female president, one that is seen as unafraid to take action. She's a Republican in terms of national defence, the kind that will try to make our Generation X leader abandon his progressive instincts and use his popularity to sell Canadians on the type of military adventures we are not known for.
Sajjan says only half of Canada's warplanes are operational at any given time.
The Republican nominee said some NATO members aren't spending enough on defence.
Former commander of Canada's army backs up Sajjan, Dion.
But he won't say if the training mission will be extended.
I do understand that we have to honour our commitment and we have to take part in global security, but engaging hundreds troops in a Cold War-esque scenario instead of focusing on Canada's main threat, terrorism, is a clear sign of the government foreign policy's alignment with our American ally.

A little over a decade ago, Canada -- under Paul Martin's Liberals -- rejected taking part in the United States Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) system along its U.S. counterpart. The Canadian government is currently reviewing its defence policy, including the possibility to reconsider its position on their participation to the U.S. BMD system.
The fact that it can strike land targets gives Canada the ability to support ground operation by conducting strategic and tactical strikes. I believe Canada will have opportunities in the near future to contribute to its allies' campaigns with the Harpoon Block II.
It's a story full of hope among a sea of despair. With thousands of refugees currently awaiting their fate at the periphery of Europe's borders, hoping to reach Germany, the United Kingdom or Sweden, at least one man was setting his sights on the Baltic nation of Lithuania.
