    Ukraine - Superthread

    A large number of Russians and their allies will come home from the war with a taste for rape and torture, and the Russian people will suffer because of it for decades.

    Meet the GM Defense ISV Army Truck

    The Bronco does anything a Jeep does, even with IFS, and has the size to fit people and kit in it. The CAF won't be rock crawling, so the extra articulation a solid front axel provides isn't really a game changer. Anything the CAF buys will have all the electronics of a modern vehicle, we...

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    They're asleep, in bed beside the CCP.

    Reconstitution

    ah... but that's not how a Command Team works anywhere else in the CAF, it's a navy bastardization of the concept.

    China's Vancouver consulate recruits volunteer corps, raising concerns

    I suspect the CCP was smart enough to work both the LPC and CPC, so neither would want to air the dirty laundry. Politicians aren't interested in what's best for Canada, they're interested in what's best for them.

    Reconstitution

    Few things are more grating than listening to a CWO/CPO 1 ramble on about the Chief Corps... As far as working at the Strat level goes, the whole point of having Snr NCMs in the room is to have their perspective, not just to have a group of Snr NCMs indoctrinated into the hivemind. I support...

    Also, Vancouver Island is a nicer place to be than anywhere in Alberta, particularly Nov-Apr.

    Reconstitution

    I haven't done ALP yet, but I've never heard anyone describe it as useful or enjoyable. Even PLQ and ILP have people who find them useful, but ALP seems like a course designed so the CAF can assign a credential for the sake of a credential. At the CPO 2 level networking, and interacting with...

    Reconstitution

    Have you considered a degree from Algonquin Collage? It gets brought up so often when talking about career advancement I'm sure it must be the key to leadership...

    Reconstitution

    As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I don't think recruits today are asking "Why?" more, it's just a perception that leaders have when they are the ones giving direction. I had to remind my young Millennial Cpls and MCpl to answer when the Ptes/Avrs asked "Why?". It wasn't because of a...

    The slow decline of Federation?

    That would have been a sound way to disrupt the French, and make it more difficult to hold Quebec. It might be frowned upon today, but it was par for the course in that time period. During the Hundred Years War Northern France was devastated by the extensive use of chevauchee by both sides.

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    No, but they'd be called "settlers" and lumped in with Cornwallis... Same for a person of Polish descent who moved to Canada after WWI. Edit: You also wouldn't have to look too hard to find white Canadians who identify as Irish, Scottish, Italian, etc...

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    If it comes down to Canadian cities being under threat of attack, American "good will" will be busy defending their own cities. Just like American "good will" saw them keep PPE and vaccines for themselves(as they should) when Canada came begging. Canadian cities are protected by proximity to...

    Reconstitution

    I remember when I joined 22 years ago, all my crusty old bosses said essentially the same thing about the dreaded "Millennials" joining. People have always wanted/needed to know "why?", it's not a uniquely "Gen ____" thing. The real issue we are facing is that there is a labour shortage across...

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    With the urbanization of Canada many people have lost touch with life outside of a city. Some city people hunt, but they tend to be people who moved to the city from rural areas.

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    I suspect the NAC wasn't interesting in fighting in court to prove that attending a play improves equity for black Canadians.

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    It has nothing to do with racial fluidity, and everything to do with not breaking the law. If the NAC placed rules on attendance that actually excluded particular races, they would be violating the Charter, so instead they use social pressure to encourage white people to self-select out of...

    Why Success Doesn’t Lead to Satisfaction

    I've listened to a few different people discuss this topic on my favourite podcast, Modern Wisdom. Many of the materially successful people we see are unhappy despite their success, they usually feel like they need to do more or make more money. People look at hugely successful individuals...
