If he had said don't join the kurds and left it at that I would have had no issue. But to tack on join the Canadian forces to fight Daesh knowing full well that the army isn't going anywhere reeks of dishonesty.jollyjacktar said:He is just towing the party line , did you honestly expect him to publicly say anything different?

Just my 2 cents
Colin P said:and to be fair joining the army now means it's unlikely to be involved in this fight directly. The CSOR guys likely all have 10+ years under their belt, a select few pilots get to the pointy end of the stick, but supported by a large group to arm, fuel, direct and maintain the aircraft. So if someone wanted to fight them directly, joining the Canadian Forces is a unlikely way to do so and with little or no say where you go. The current tactical situation is going to be decided in the next few years if not sooner. So joining the Kurds is a very quick way into the fight, but likely they need people that bring unique skillsets they lack as opposed to untrained foot solider.

naef's facebook says they are recieving all kinds of donations, how come they aren't providing their guy NVGs? I've noticed they are quite fast at deleting questions on their FB page.

1 man actually in country fighting.
1NAEF just a front for a possible scam artist.
That is my initial suspicions from your statement.

MCG said:It is the thread title. "Former Veteran"
Once you are a veteran, I think the only way to earn the qualifier "former" would be by dying.
