    Avro Arrow RL-206

    The Arrowheads (And various and sundry political types ..) having been milking the supposed greatness of our supposed world beating CF 105 for well over 60 years. It was an over priced dog whose role all but disappeared a few short years later. What it was was a marvelous test bed for emerging...

    Updated Army Service Dress project

    It's far superior to the current issue belt. And to be honest I have always thought the Same Browne belt added a touch of class.

    'We could hear the burning': Canada's top soldier remembers the Battle of Medak Pocket

    Two things I've said and been pilloried mostly by people who seem to have some connection to the conflict. Too bad I stand by them both. "Welcome to the Balkans , don't forget to turn your watches back 500 years." " The average residents of the former Yugoslavia can't tell what you what they...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    I doubt Trudeau was all that impressed anyway. Afterall who is Joe Biden in the greater scheme of things...... aside from being President of the United States of America. Nobody really important in other words.

    Trudeau Popularity - or not. Nanos research

    The sparks that the Star writer expects are probably more the the the Liberal MPs able give right now . I think I've heard that phrase somewhere before? I'm sure it will come to me. Liberal caucus members are loyal to a fault . Sadly they make a vice out of a virture. And it will if things...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Deliberately targetted...? Personally I think you're giving the Russians far too much credit . After watching this war the last roughly 2 years . I suspect that targeting is at best haphazard and occasionally non existent. I'd love to know what their blue on blue casualties really are. Wanna...

    The forgotten end of the second world war

    You're working on the assumption the Japanese government actually would have been allowed to surrender . I can not even begin to explain just how much control a senior to mid level group of officers had or the insane lengths they were prepared to go to in order to achieve their goals It was...

    Liberal Minority Government 2021 - ????

    In about six months or so I expect the Conservative Leader to be stabbed in the back by his own party . Either that he'll do himself in choked to death by his own foot. The party has an unfortunate history of both. The Liberals on the hand have history of unstriving loyalty to their leader even...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Although I suspect that not many Canadian politicians have heard that quote or for that matter. What I suspect may be one of the most repeated quotes in history . " In order to insure peace one should prepare for war. " It's been attributed to just about everybody since I believe the Roman...
