    Para's are exempted from trigger warnings, unless it is to bunk with Royal Marines.

    Sigh, it's always the kids at the back of the bus that become Para's....... :giggle:

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Trigger warning, bodies and explosion. Either the solider is dazed and confused, or really could not give a sh*t about anything. No wonder they do meat assaults if they care that much about each other.

    I would not be surprised if they strip the engines coming out of the Lauier for the parts needed for this refit https://www.canadiandefencereview.com/news/canadian-coast-guard-ship-griffon-vessel-life-extension-contract-awarded

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Neither of us can say that true/not true with any form of conviction. Obama was not a deterrent because he was to predictable and wrapped up in how is image would be. Trump in my opinion was more a of a deterrent as he was more unpredictable and it was harder for the Russian/Chinese to determine...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I disagree on that one, Putin acted because Obama was a waffling idiot. Trump took power at a time when the US public was sick of fighting forever wars and being stabbed politically in the back by allies that were doing little to defend themselves. He took some political gambles, some paid off...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    My wife sent our kids to the Unitarian church for awhile (She was looking for a good place for kids) When they made all the washrooms gender neutral we left. It's just plain stupid. If I am in a washroom and young girl came in, I would leave. The risk of any sort of accusation is not worth it...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Obama certainly encouraged Putin (and others) to take a gamble and those gambles mostly payed off. Trump for all his flopping around was more willing to step on toes (like whacking those Russians & insurgents in Syria) to show he meant business. However I don't see him being a POTUS that will...

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    There was a significant amount of PS managers who came to maturity with the CPC in power (and may have started under the cost cutting of Chreatin) and were fiscally prudent. Those were the ones who were quite uncomfortable with current government largess with money, budgets and personal increases.

    Asbestos Latvia

    Our hall has asbestos in the glue holding the floor covering in the galley. The jointing compound has 3% asbestos in it, but thankfully not the drywall.

    AOR Replacement & the Joint Support Ship (Merged Threads)

    Maybe and maybe not. Personally I think it would have helped the RCN and given them new missions and also changed how the CAF works together.

    AOR Replacement & the Joint Support Ship (Merged Threads)

    The Van Doos did do an exercise with the French Mistrals and since we will always be an expeditionary army, it would have been time for the grown ups to say "Yea your getting this and you need to accommodate it and plan for it". I suspect the Mistrals would be the C-17's of the seas and very...

    AOR Replacement & the Joint Support Ship (Merged Threads)

    At that time the time we were looking at them, the Tribals were self-divesting and the base crew of a Mistral is slightly less than a Tribal . So we would have stood up a new helicopter carrier with 1-2 Sea Kings on it.
