  1. Perhaps a better question would be How many Canadians died from exposure to agent orange, CFB Gagetown, NB is where this chemical was developed, Did you also know there is still a few Canadian military vets and their families suing the Federal government for compensation. No party has agree to see everyone who had a part in this chemical cluster fu** compensated, yours or mine... The idea was a great idea, from a military stand point( jungle warfare), no place to hide easy target...and it was not the locals that were the problem, it was the VC and NVA that was the problem. Burn pits

  2. Not my concern...your domestic politics and squabbles are your own, plus you seem to make time for worrying about American leaders and politics as well. Justin Trudeau is a failure in most any context, except for legalized cannabis and dopers.

  3. This point highlights several disadvantages that China faces...the West has several allied nations with more advanced nuclear warhead designs and more accurate delivery systems that can leverage those designs. The west also is deploying credible ballistic missile defense systems (with or without Canada). China is playing catch-up for land, sea, and air capabilities while trying to maintain a very large conventional army to fight a 20th century ground war that dominates its historical experience....transitioning to modern American/Western force structure concepts has not been without proble

  5. Lots of guys on this forum with more expertise on nukes than i , Bush used to sail on US subs, dog on the porch , or argus have studied the topic more than i, what i do know is what they taught every grunt, nukes are very bad. during the cold war any use of WMD would result in MAD, that included the use of chemical wpns, atleast those you could take precautions and maybe live if you were lucky, but it is a terrible way to die.... Nukes be it inter continental or tactical meant death to everyone in range, either by blast, or fire, or by radiation poisonings or by all three . There are many type

  6. It is not that i don't value your opinion, but on this topic i have to disagree 100 %. When most people are asked what is our military for, most if not all will say to defend our nation from foreign invasion , meaning landing craft, tanks and planes coming on shore, and yet DND defends this nation along with 6 or 7 other depts on a daily basis , from cyber attacks, foreign nationals gathering intel on our infra structures, cyber networks, espionage of military and industrial targets, protecting our coast lines from over fishing, drug trafficking's, human smuggling, direct assistance of persona

  7. Canada is still a democracy but to a limited degree. It is run by a small borg of elite located in the Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto triangle and is to some degree an oligarchy. True democracy would reject a leader who has had repeated ethics violations. In Canada ethics doesn't seem to carry much weight. The morally deficient masses still vote them in. Charisma, name, and where they're from has more weight.

  9. Wake up call to what ? The economy died and the government burned money. At the end of it, everyone may decide that big spending is a wonderful thing. Opening your eyes and being able to see isn't much of an advantage if you are still too dumb to walk straight. But I am not saying I know either way.

  13. As reported on CBC this morning, only 55 thousand of long-term care workers of approx. 100 in the province have been vaccinated since December (2 months). At this "speed" Ontario will be fully vaccinated around the time of net zero carbon emissions. Seriously: they can make a regular citizen do this and that, wear double mask here and fine in an open air skating rink there. But they can't make vaccination a condition of working in a critical care zone. Nope, just can't be done. Seriously. I have to admit, I don't understand how this works and for some time time now. Does it even work

  14. China has been following a path that seeks to duplicate the American military development narrative with domestic efforts...using ex-Soviet/Russian designs and methods are not good enough anymore to achieve CPC long range plans. However, there is one thing that China cannot create or buy for these advanced systems...experience. And that translates into training, tactics, doctrine, effectiveness, etc. Of course, they have 1MT warheads because they lack the (CEP) accuracy more than any 2nd strike posturing. China today does not have a robust defense suppression capability against Nort

  15. Incidentally, I inadvertently didn't post that part but I agree it should be mentioned too. Whichever government did it, I don't agree with it. My criticism was directed at government, period. I am against that decision. But I wonder why the Liberals allowed it to continue the past five years. Why didn't they stop it? Conservatives were no better than Liberals at protecting Canadians from China. Didn't the Liberals spend a vast amount of money on the Asia Infrastructure Bank too? Helping fund projects in China? But Liberals seem to have a special love for Communist China.

  17. I am not doing well on this topic. Nuclear weapons are a deterrence, but they cannot be used. The US deterrent in the 1970s was weakened when the Soviets started to believe the US would never dare use them. President Reagan set about convincing the Soviets that he was very serious about using them. In the early 1970's, I was writing a paper exploring a Warsaw Pact invasion ove wesstern Europe. I attended a seminar with a Canadian Forces senior officer who had recently been the senior Canadian Officer in Norad. I asked him how well NATO would do in a War with the Warsaw Pact including the

  18. Enhanced Radiation Device. It is a neutron "bomb." In 1975, Livermore Labs detonated a "hydrogen" bomb with the explosive force equivalent to one firecracker, according to media reports at the time. In the late '70s, there was a lot of talk about the "neutron bomb." They talked about a bomb that killed people and left buildings intact. The ERD is highly versitile in that the is no limit to how small the yield is. The Soviets were considering using the technology in tank shells. A single round could destroy one enemy tank and kill the crews in the tanks near by. Disclaimer: I do not

  24. Democrats are thieves that stole the election in the dead of night as they thought nobody would be watching. Biden is as legitimate as a counterfeit 100 dollar bill. The thieves will pay. If not today...soon.

  25. There is a big difference between Turkey and China. China is far more powerful. One of the reasons for China's power is it's long range planning. Another is the willingness to support regimes that no country in the west would touch with a plastic pole. Xi doesn't back down easily. Pressure from a united front of the rest of the G20 nations refusing to do business might work but getting that unity is a difficult exercise. Look at how porous the sanctions against Rhodesia were. People do not want to pay five months salary to buy an Apple computer made in Canada.
