Anyone else notice that Germany's announcement over the weekend that they are stepping up military spending and are now publicly committing to honour the 2% pledge is getting ZERO coverage here in Canada? Nothing mentioned by any of the mainstream media, no similar calls for Canada to finally start honouring its previously announced commitment as well. And people say that the Canadian media is not in the pockets of a certain political party - stuff like this certainly doesn't help.

Into the "every weapon" spectrum falls chem and bio. Yes I realize these are proscribed but that hasn't been much of a deterrant to various tinpot dickheads. So are we ready to defend against either a well or not so well targetted attack or just continue to have our collective heads up our arses?
You want a honest answer or the answer that would make us collectively feel better?

German effectively doubled its Military Budget this year - which works out to about 45B USD extra to spend on modernization.

Two things as I have noted elsewhere for unless you have an Ukrainian background the current war might as well be happening on another planet. As KevinB put it, we're at the Mall not the Wall..
And my second point that Remius.raised about about Russians complaining about.protests and the safety of their diplomats.
I would not be too surprised if someone from our diplomatic staff over there got himself a semi official beat down with officially profound apologies of course.
