    Best Base/Training Area for Tanks/Combined Arms

    It has excellent uses. Just as an aside, the training facilities for the Idaho and Montana National Guard's 116th Cavalry BCT (basically a heavy combined arms ABCT) are about one quarter of the size of Suffield. - Just saying. 🍻

    Great Britain Offers to help Canada defend its Arctic (CBC)

    The problem in this age of the "Big Lies" is that the soc-con fear factor will be invoked over and over again regardless of whether the CPC gets purged or not. I have a theory that until the CPC puts the word "Progressive" back into the party's name, no one will believe that there has been a...

    Great Britain Offers to help Canada defend its Arctic (CBC)

    I agree with you on those points. I had a neutral view of O'Toole at the leadership convention but since then have come to consider him a good leader that wants to take the party in the correct direction. Unfortunately, it's the membership in the party I don't like anymore. The most recent...

    Best Base/Training Area for Tanks/Combined Arms

    One way this is addressed is in the US Marine Corps where an active service officer or NCO is posted to a reserve unit. Note that the reserve units are largely fully manned and equipped and have a much higher number of active service individuals in them. In any event, a posting to a reserve unit...

    Great Britain Offers to help Canada defend its Arctic (CBC)

    I sometimes wonder about that. The most recent popular vote outcomes are: CPC - 5,742,605 LPC - 5,556,491 NDP - 3,036,030 Bloc - 1,301,831 Green - 398,775 PPC - 844,122 Of those CPC and PPC form right of centre for - 6,586,727 while LPC and NDP and Green form left of centre - 8,991,296 The...

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    Then we better be pretty quick in setting up manufacturing facilities for the $75 billion of manufactured goods we get from there and find another market for the $25 billion of raw materials and agricultural goods we send their way. :cautious:

    How was that different for all the white, male VPs that went before her? :unsure:

    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    I hope there's a lot of grandfathering involved with all these initiatives. I like the number of bathrooms I have and my snow blower. ;)

    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    2009. My gear is down to three old grey t-shirts, two sets of thermal underwear and my 1970's summer AVF crew suit (still regret turning my winter crew suit jacket in - that would be it here.) . 🍻

    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    Double vanities have always puzzled me. Do people really spend that much time at the sink prettying themselves up that they can't share one? Even couples who have to go to work at the same time? And don't get me started on walk-in closets the size of a bedroom. Do people really need that many...

    "Soldiers Rules" - Still a current thing?

    The CF hasn't moved away from these rules. They are still at the core of the international law of armed conflict. Under the LOAC, every country has an obligation to teach the LOAC to its troops. We were doing a pretty good job of this back in the eighties and nineties - even as a Res F Leg O I...

    "Soldiers Rules" - Still a current thing?

    Brihard - not sure if you are talking about the Soldier's card which is issued respecting an operation's rules of engagement which, as SKT says are different for each op or the ICRC's condensed "soldier's rules" for the Law of Armed Conflict which are these: 🍻

    Foundation - series on Apple TV+ out on 24 Sep 2021

    Found the same with Disney + - once you are through the Star Wars and Marvel stuff, and the odd Disney thing, you end up searching around Star for something and most of the good things there are pay per view. 🍻

    Foundation - series on Apple TV+ out on 24 Sep 2021

    I remember reading the Foundation series back in high school (We had a good librarian - she put Starship Trooper and lots of early Sci-Fy on the shelf). This will probably convince me to finally add Apple + to my streaming lineup. 🍻

    Cosmic impact found on ancient city

    4.5 inches in under eighteen hours. The Environment Canada has us under a continuing rainfall warning with another 3 - 4 inches to night with some areas up to 6 inches and then a week of showers. This is probably typical for BC but not SW Ontario. We'll see what the dawn brings. So far I'm...

    Cosmic impact found on ancient city

    Talking about Noah's flood, here in southwest Ontario we seem to be in a rain event of biblical proportions. We've had 2.5 inches in the last eight hours, the rain is coming down in sheets, my sump pump is working overtime, and there is no relief in sight. Thinking of tearing down my fence for...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    I loved my time in Manitoba but enjoyed moving to southwest Ontario even more, especially living on Lake Erie. That thing about boaters floating around everywhere is a thing though. 🚣‍♂️
