    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    I just wanted to comment on this as I found it very funny. My Father-in-Law is a Steel Worker. He has worked in three different Countries for multiple companies in many different industrial settings. He has worked his way up from the floor all the way to Management. The people that are part...

    Replacing the Subs

    The problem with this comparison is it fails to take in to account the significant advances in technology that have taken place since that time. A Diesel Sub's only advantage is it is somewhat quieter in specific situations. It is considerably weaker in every other category and it's not even...

    Replacing the Subs

    I would say they are pretty useless defensively as well given how quickly the water depth drops off in the Pacific. The Upholders were designed for the GIUK Gap which is shallow water. The West Coast of North America is Nuke Country.

    Replacing the Subs

    Pretty much. Not having an AOR basically limits our Navy's ability to get anywhere. We can limp across the Pacific if our Allies feel like giving us gas which is what happens presently. SSKs, from an actual operational standpoint, are useless to us in the Pacific.

    It hit the market two days ago. DOW dropped 900 points.

    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    Hit the nail right on the head! My personal opinion is that Canadian politics and the political spectrum in this Country have shifted to the left. I would classify the Politics of this Country as being Corporate-Socialist in nature. I see a lot of parallels in Canada right now with Peronism...

    The average voter doesn't track any of these issues though. Look where the Liberals are popular.... Major urban centres in Canada. In order to understand the average Liberal voter, you need to put yourself in their shoes. Liberal Policies have been wildly beneficial for them: Massive...

    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    As long as Trudeau is the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada I refuse to vote for them. I've got some very simple reasons for this: 1. The Admiral Norman Affair; 2. WE Charity Scandal; 3. Decision to Withdraw Military Assets in the Fight against ISIS; 4. Foreign Policy Blunders; and 5...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    I do own and have read the book. I've also got some personal experience now doing it. Transiting a place like Malacca or the Strait of Hormuz will give you an appreciation of where you don't want to have to fight a ship.

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Forgive me for taking some time to respond to this but there is a lot to unpack here. How do Ships Fight? The first thing I will say is that the worst possible place you could be if you are a Ship is alongside.... Why? Because Ships defend themselves with Manoeuvre as their first defence...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    I have been wanting to weigh in on this topic for the past few days but have not had the time. Unfortunately Kirkhill, you are comparing Apples and Oranges. The way Ships fight and organize themselves is fundamentally different from the Army. There are a number of reasons for this: Command...

    Trudeau looked and sounded terrible. He got skewered by the other leaders. O'Toole was well prepared for the debate, he looked and sounded Prime Ministerial.

    Joe Biden gives up on the war in Afghanistan, leaving a weak ally

    No, what we need to do is stop looking at these issues with Western/North American lenses. The US could have very easily maintained a presence in Afghanistan indefinitely, other Countries do it and I have no idea why they didn't? France has maintained a presence in Chad since 1975 and has...

    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    My uncle is a General Contractor and builds homes for a living. The general trend in the trades is he can't find Canadian under the age of 45 to do work for him. Young Canadians don't want to do that work. He can get lots of foreigners though and they all work very hard and don't complain.
