    Time to Arm Cenotaph Guard? (split from Domestic Terrorism)

    I have a question: I keep seeing this photo showing two soldiers. I assume the premise is to have more eyes. What happened to the second soldier? I don't recall hearing reports of him returning fire. Please don't tell me that after what happened in Montreal that these guys were carrying...

    Oh dear God, you must be kidding me....

    I've read of some absolutely assinine programs over the years, but this may take the cake. Anyone who doesn't think we need to de-Liberal the bureaucracies of this country is simply not paying attention. Matthew.  >:(

    My take on Harper....

    So far, I like most of what he is doing.... I would've preferred an income tax cut to a VAT tax cut because VAT tax cuts tend to stimulate spending (much of which is on foreign produced goods), while income tax cuts statistically lead to higher savings rates. I'm not a fan of even pretending...

    Fighting the Taliban, and the media with an agenda....

    Excerpt from the BBC: So....if 25% of 4,000 dead are civilians, that means that 75% are combatants, and based on released death tolls by NATO, we can extrapolate that 2,500+ dead were Taliban.  In addition, in context with the earlier part of the article, the "violence that has surged in...

    So at this point I see Jack Layton walking towards me.....

    I was just over the Covent Garden Market to grab a quick breakfast (started work at 6:30am this morning) and as I'm walking over to my little hole-in-the-wall place that makes its own wonderful version of an Egg McMuffin, here comes his highness with his lolly band of not-knows.....and what pops...

    Communist China threatens us over Dalai Lama visit....

    I know no one in the Liberal Party has the spine to tell them to pound salt, but I really hope Harper tells them to bugger off. Matthew.  >:( Excerpted from CNN.com (http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/americas/07/26/canada.dalai.china.reut/index.html)

    Fighting the IED/RPG ambush threat

    First, my official disclaimer - you guys have forgotten more than I know.... That being said, although I like the premise of the authors argument, I think he stops one step short.  Specifically, that planning and procuring for an insurgent/guerilla type defence using the RPG-7 is at-best is...

    Senator and Polaris Institute challenge PMC's

    I just wanted to say I watched Diplomatic Immunity over the weekend and some of the comments made here about you "being clear what your against" as opposed to "what you stand for", was very evident during the show and very much undercut your credibility in the debate. To be candid, I have...

    Suggested method for bypassing tender process....

    In short, DND gathers existing contract information for desired kit as purchased by other nations from public sources and should the supplying company be willing to provide a minimum discount of 7.5% over the inflation-adjusted price, then the tendering process may be bypassed. More than...

    PRC buying 38 IL-76 for $850 million USD.....

    That's $22 million USD per NEW airframe! http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/il76/ Now call me crazy but even if we accept the fact we'd have to pay to upgrade all the avoinics to NATO standards, is this not an alternative that the CF should be exploring to replace our C-130 fleet? ...

    FELEX / Single Ship Transition Progress????

    Anyone heard anything positive re: either program? Specifically, I was really hopeful some creative engineer was going to figure out a good way to fit APAR to the Halifax-class but since I've heard nothing I'm worried it may be dead in the water....(probably a poor choice of terms). M.  ???
