    V-Adm Art McDonald new Canadian CDS (Jan-Feb 2021)

    CoC was supposed to be held on Friday. Based on recent events, including the cancelled posting to Naples, LGen Coates is still Comd CJOC. Hang tight for the next GOFO msg (and then the one after that when displeased GOFO's vote with their feet)

    I see what you did there.........hah. I am a little distressed at your suggestion that infantry needs any cover.

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    And we won't, because we are the CAF, and we know better. Sigh.

    General Vance - Inappropriate conduct?

    As I will never ever reach/aspire to those lofty heights, I am reasonably assured that I will get a pay raise. My point, not articulated, was that we seem to be regressing back into that period, merited or not, where scrutiny of the CAF becomes the de rigueur. Having lived through that for...

    You can sleep 10 squaddies in there. Struth.

    Berths......pffft. You can sleep at least a battalion of Pongos on the decks on all levels. Bivvy bags for all. Cookie might be a little overworked.........unless IMP's.

    V-Adm Art McDonald new Canadian CDS (Jan-Feb 2021)

    At this juncture, everything is up in the air. The games, and the behind the scenes Machiavellian activities, have already begun.

    OMFG. Glad I am not doing "issues management" anymore.

    General Vance - Inappropriate conduct?

    And that misconduct, if that is what it is, is only defined in Canada under NDA 129 and applied to CAF members (yup, I know that the NDA can apply in certain circumstances to others.) . I cannot for the life of me think of a CC equivalent. (Brihard, please weigh in)

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    Good diplomacy presupposes that both, or all parties are seeking the most beneficial, or least harmful outcome. China and the CCP seek to skew what they perceive as diplomatic matters wildly in their favour, and see any criticism as "meddling" in their domestic affairs. China has benefited...

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    The adoption of the motion in the HoC yesterday to accuse China of genocide was a start. And let's not forget that former senior Liberals and other influencers have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. Their links to China are vast. We appear to have our own "Gang of Five" who have...

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    The larger national interest commands that Canada vociferously, and continually, demands the release of the two Michaels, and economics be damned. Below the radar diplomacy, as has been practiced since WWII, was a viable option during the Cold War, and perhaps up until 2010. With an increasingly...

    British Military Current Events

    I have posted before on here how SFOR HQ Sarajevo brought an ARG MP platoon to Banja Luka to act as the security element on a BDF ex, using off-duty Brit squaddies as the rioters/enemy force, and how the Brit Major planning the Ex expected me to invite/garner local and international media...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    I grew up in Nova Scotia, but had been away for a long period of time. I went back on vacation about 10 years ago, and because I am both a big wine drinker, and supporter of all things N.S., went to Jost Vineyards in Malagash. They have a great tour and tasting set-up, but every one of their...
