    Zipperhead, objectionable term?

    I have lost track of how many times some REMF called me a grunt to which I would indignantly reply that I was a zipperhead.

    Global Warming/Climate Change Super Thread

    One of the things that really bugs me about the save the polar bears thing is  the only population that is declining are the ones in Churchill and Baffin island.  The reality is that in the last 30 years the total population has gone from around 5,000 to 25,000.  But, like baby seals, they make...

    The Poppy Eradication Superthread-Merged

    It will be difficult for the Afghan government to resist the pressure of the US who seem stuck on the myopic view of eradication.  There is an opportunity here to convert Afghan farmers to the legitimate cultivation of poppies but narrow minded interests keep getting in the way.  While US...

    Global Warming/Climate Change Super Thread

    The inconvenient truth for Gore is the fact that his powerpoint/book/movie is so full of scientific inaccuracies and errors he would have failed basic highschool science if it were submitted as an essay.  As for that envirofacist Suzuki, the fact that he is trying to shove Kyoto down everyones...

    Vimy Ridge no-shows

    Ignatief was there, but as an academic he probably knows how to keep track of dates. The Van Doos fought at Vimy along side the soldiers from the rest of Canada.  Douceppe, who proports to respresent all people from Quebec, should have been there to honour soldiers from the very province he...

    836 RMS Clk Pride!

    The "soldier first" mantra is much more than putting on a ruck and going for run, it is an attitude that cannot be taught.  I learned more from living the life of a combat arms soldier than any training ever taught, I learned empathy for the person on the other side of the counter.  Anyone can...
