    Remains found at Kamloops residential school 'not an isolated incident,' Indigenous experts and leaders warn

    Doubt it. Once the religion is emptied out of a person's mind, a void remains which most find hard to fill; there is no longer any higher authority to appeal to in order to settle the matter of what ought to be nor any hope to cling to in adversity except what one creates for oneself. A few can...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Bombers that launch from a long way out.

    A Canadian Foreign Intelligence Service

    Yes and no. I'm being facetious, but there are people in Canada who will see it that way.

    A Canadian Foreign Intelligence Service

    How un-Canadian and contrary to Canadian Values.

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    "Our politically well-connected elites would like to take advantage of the fantastic investment opportunities in your country." "Certainly. Perhaps some of our people could embed in your institutions to learn and observe?"

    Second senior military member removed from Canada's vaccine rollout campaign

    "I'm sorry. If I had known you had a voice, I would never have been an asshole."

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Sure. If it comes down to attrition (cost and ease of manufacture), drones and missiles are more expensive than shells and bullets.

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    But German AT screens were effective and remained effective because they discovered the use of AA artillery in the AT role, and were able to "dominate locally". If tanks were dominant, some Allied offensives should not have gone so badly. Part of the answer to "why" is that an effective...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    As soon as someone puts a system on the battlefield comparable to what is the final line of anti-missile defence for ships, I suppose it will be all over with drones. Until the next revolutionary change.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I mean ostrich-head-buried don't want to hear, followed by mob-like calls for "justice". Not a good thing.

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Other pieces of evidence: the Germans re-roled light to panzer divisions between Poland and France, and doubled the number of panzer divisions between France and Russia. This was achieved by spreading the available tanks over more divisions. I suppose they must have understood that the...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    "Ideal tank terrain" (open) is also "ideal anti-tank terrain". What made tanks dominant was the tactical and operational mobility of the formations (as noted above, including mechanized and motorized). In North Africa the ability to move - to encircle, or to escape encirclement - was critical...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    "Never fight a land war in Asia." Or east of the Vistula. Design accordingly.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Canadians do not pay attention to the CAF beyond the big stories of the day. Few would know what the points of going to Rwanda or the Balkans were if there had been no major massacres. Few would have paid any attention to matters in Afghanistan if there had been no bodies coming home. Many...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Sure, take stuff at face value if you wish. But using crises to pursue agendas isn't something people recently discovered.

    ...that he just wanted to make a point about how fucked up the purgers and informers have become?

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    The most effective use of tank-heavy forces (which actually means about 1:2 tank:infantry units) is pursuit and exploitation, or contra same. It's wasteful to employ them as assault/breaching or defensive formations. Administrative operational mobility has always been by transport. Canada...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Enjoying watching the humourless Stasi zealots come out of the woodwork the past couple of years. Their moment to denounce everything and express outrage at all levity has arrived. Old joke: A friend bails you out of jail. A true friend looks at you from across the cell and says, "We sure...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The forces is an institution. Some people want to change the institution, just as they have changed other institutions. Expect relentless attention until the institution changes to suit them, or they can be made to go away. Conduct self accordingly.
