    And posters on here are challenging what you accept/espouse as the baseline.

    RCAF Authorities / Future Unmanned Aircraft for RCAF

    You have cited doctrine as the reason why RCAF should retain oversight/authority. That rationale doesn’t stand up to scrutiny or debate.Capabilities evolve,new concepts are introduced. Otherwise,Maginot Lines for all.

    RCAF Authorities / Future Unmanned Aircraft for RCAF

    I get it that sometime fighter pilots make up their own rules, but sometimes you talk outta your ass. This from CFJP 01 Canadian Military Doctrine. Link below. https://military-justice.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Canadian-Military-Doctrine.pdf The concept and purpose of doctrine 0103...

    RCAF Authorities / Future Unmanned Aircraft for RCAF

    Doctrine is authoritative in nature, but requires judgment in application.

    British Military Current Events

    Yeah FJAG, this is really disconcerting. The number of vexatious/frivolous lawsuits, both domestically and ICC driven, against UK forces, is surreal. Do you think the US disdain for the ICC, while the UK abides by it, has been the reason why the US sees relatively few of these cases?

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    So you have taken the Schrödinger's cat approach. Take a stance, and support it with facts, rather than ad hominem attacks. Rebut his conjecture, run rings around him logically. Otherwise, your postings merit no more consideration than his, but at least he presented an argument. You keep...

    Fine, recce away. You still are engaging, now with me, and you still haven't addressed his points. As such, now I am disengaging.

    Fair enough. Your time is yours. But if you don't want to bash your head against a brick wall, then maybe don't throw bricks either.

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    I updated my post above. It is said that Perception = reality. What is utterly ridiculous is for you to trash a poster, get called on it, and then decide that you are taking your ball and going home. I simply asked that you rebut his concerns. Your failure to even contemplate this COA would...

    FJ actually answered your question with his concerns. Now the "burden of truth" is back on you with your illegitimate election trope comment. It's fine to take a side or make a stand. It's not fine to make snide comments about someone's concerns. If you can rebut it, then do so. Your posting...

    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    I was there from 90 til way after you left. Worked in Base HQ and then LFCA. We may have crossed paths. (sports, bars, mess etc.) Where did you work?

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    It's a complicated/tricky space. GTA has roughly 6.5 M folks in it, or about 17% of the population. So the potential recruit base is fairly large. It also has the most diverse population of any major centre in Canada. When I was at LFCA in the 90's/2K's, The Royal Regiment of Canada could...

    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    I was in TO from 1990 til 2002. When you went to Wonderland, you drove up the 400 through a bunch of farmed fields on each side, and then could see the roller coasters from miles away, which heightened the anticipation. Went back about 5 years ago, anticipating/expecting that same feeling...

    Not at all. If you read that into what I posted, then my bad for not being more descriptive. Trying to discriminate between stupid, and illegal/immoral. Skeletons for me and my generation mean stupid, non-illegal acts that only reflect badly on yourself, and caused no harm to others. We have...

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Anyone want to bet that we end up with 3 Type 26's and then the rest will be mongrel Type 28.5's, which will be Canadian-only bastardized versions of combining Type 26 and Type 31's aspects, with future Naval combat capabilities built in?

    Skeletons are mostly OK. It's when you have living, breathing people crammed in your closet, or others who saw what you did in your closet, where the problems arise.
