U.S.-Iran tension has implications for Canadian troops in Iraq: analysts

U.S.-Iran tension has implications for Canadian troops in Iraq: analysts OTTAWA — The escalating tensions in the Persian Gulf between Iran and the United States have implications for the future safety of Canadian troops in Iraq, analysts suggested Monday. Canada has about 850 military personnel there, including regular troops, special forces, medical specialists and helicopter air crews, as well as holding the leadership of the NATO training mission for Iraqi forces, but Iranian-backed Shia Muslim militias are also on the ground. The Iranian-backed forces had a shared interest in helping the West defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, but there are fears they could be used to strike U.S. forces or their allies.

The survivors come from countries including, Myanmar, New Zealand, Yemen, China, Cuba, Eritrea, Nigeria, Turkey, Vietnam, Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Iran and Germany. When President Trump met human rights activist Nadia Murad, an Iraqi who was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 2018 for speaking out about her agonizing torture and rape while in Islamic State captivity, he seemed unaware of her story and the plight of her Yazidi ethnic minority.

For several minutes in the Oval Office on Wednesday, Murad stood beside a seated Trump, who mostly avoided eye contact with Murad, and implored the president to help her community return to Iraq. She explained that the Islamic State, or ISIS, may be gone but that Iraqis and Kurds are now fighting for control over Yazidi lands.

“If I cannot go to my home and live in a safe place and get my dignity back, this is not about ISIS,” she said, her voice breaking. “It’s about I’m in danger. My people cannot go back.”

Murad, who now lives in Germany, told him she never wanted to be a refu­gee but that ISIS murdered her mother and six brothers.

“Where are they now?” Trump asked.

“They killed them,” she repeated. “They are in the mass grave in Sinjar, and I’m still fighting just to live in safety.”

“I know the area very well that you’re talking about,” Trump responded.

Trump met with nearly two dozen foreigners who, like Murad, had suffered religious persecution in their home countries. Others included a Jewish Holocaust survivor, a Tibetan from China and a Rohingya Muslim from Myanmar.

Trump told her he would look into it “very strongly.” As she started to back away, Trump said: “And you had the Nobel Prize. That’s incredible. They gave it to you for what reason?”

“For what reason?” Murad replied. “For, after all this happened to me, I didn’t give up. I made it clear to everyone that ISIS raped thousands of Yazidi women.” She told him she was the first woman to get out and speak publicly about what was happening.

Scott Thompson: In Donald Trump’s world, where do you have to ‘go back’ to? The words tweeted by the president of the United States of America this week were divisive and nothing else — and all for votes, Scott Thompson says.

“I escaped, but I don’t have my freedom yet,” she said.

Trump has said that he deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for his work on Syria and North Korea and has lamented that President Barack Obama received one during his first year in office.

In the same meeting, the president also seemed not to know that Rohingya refugees had fled violence in Myanmar, also known as Burma. In a confusing exchange, a Rohingya man, Mohib Ullah, told Trump that his people wanted to “go back home as quickly as possible” — an apparent reference to western Myanmar — and asked the president what the plan was to help them.

“And where is that, exactly?” the president asked.

“Bangladesh refugee camp,” Ullah answered, referring to where thousands of Rohingya have fled to escape persecution by Myanmar security forces.

Sam Brownback, a former Republican governor of Kansas who now serves as U.S. ambassador at large for international religious freedom, interjected, “That is right next to Burma.”

“I see,” Trump said.

Before a military crackdown that began in 2015 and intensified two years later, an estimated 1 million Rohingya people lived in Rakhine state, a part of Myanmar on its western coast. Hundreds of thousands have since fled to neighboring Bangladesh, where they have been living in squalid camps in the southeastern part of the country.
