    A Deeply Fractured US

    ??? That's pretty random. You could simply stick to the issue at hand but okay, let's go with a theoretical and extreme what-if scenario.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    I guess at the end of the day, even if there are no charges, it seems like it's a good thing that TS and SCI documents are back in official US goverment hands instead of sitting in a safe in a golf resort.

    Arbour Report - Recommendation #29: Future of Military Colleges

    Sure, but you do that in the unit, not in a class room. Our HR pool is fragile, and this takes people out of it for a full year, while providing very broad PME that will still require direct and job specific on boarding. All the training and assessments up to that point include basics like...

    Arbour Report - Recommendation #29: Future of Military Colleges

    A few years ago they made the Masters of Defence Studies portion mandatory; previously it was optional for people that already had a Masters. Not sure if that has changed back, but I guess they thought some students had too much free time, as there wasn't an option to do a shortened version...

    Arbour Report - Recommendation #29: Future of Military Colleges

    The US equivalent is shorter, but the final evaluation is actually running a giant exercise with, air, land, sea and special force assets. They don't do a lot of the theoretical content we do; instead they learn by doing, with actual mentoring and oversight. Our looks at the theory of...

    Replacing the Subs

    Political will aside, going nuclear would require a massive amount of investment in infrastructure, training and likely a new base somewhere for better security. The nuke boat crews have a lot more training than what we do now, and (fitting in with the theme for the RCN) have a hard time...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    I doubt they bothered to do the paperwork anyway in this case, even if they did intend to de-classify things. He had sycophants in the inner circle, especially at the end. Some similar things with the unwritten UK constitution; things like Parliamentary decorum and best practices assume a...

    Arbour Report - Recommendation #29: Future of Military Colleges

    What I still find weird is that the JCSP is supposed to be Master's level study as part of the professionalization of senior officers, but if you already have a Masters, you still have to go to JCSP for the tick in the box. After spending a few years getting a real Masters under the PG program...

    That's kind of crazy to me a president can just sign a memo ordering anything to be declassified, but I guess it sort of assumes they are responsible and acting in the best interest of the US.

    CRCN Message on the Steward Occupation Town Hall (Steward trade elimination)

    Which is pretty funny, given how many people get wound up about the capitalization use of italics for ship names, use of weird short forms (fo'csle, bos'n, etc), or other weird bits of arcana.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    For sure, and seems to be the common denominator for the people that didn't get investigated further is wealth and power, not politics. I just don't see how this is some kind of smoking gun on getting a warrant; maybe I should indulge in some legal cannabis to get the paranoia on to get into...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    They have speechwriters and all kinds of PR people so the choice of words was very deliberate, and implies a certain amount of authority. He's been an MP for 18 years, including a stint as the shadow Finance guy so it's either a lie or he is ignorant on that basic relationship, which implies...

    I don't really understand how, would he not want to actually be no where near that as Trump was also involved with Epstein and Maxwell?

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    They are all politicians; they are hypocritical about different things (ie PP calling out landlords when profittng off a landlord company). But c'mon, saying he's going to fire the BoC governor as PM when he won't have that authority is either due to ignorance or outright lying. You're bending...
