Re: Tomes, scholarly papers, and essays on Canadian affairs

Reading a book called: Koba the Dread: Laughter and the Twenty Million by Martin Amis. Although it has nothing materially to do with Canada it goes to show how the dark side was being managed from 1918 to 1991. You could think of Canada as a silly social christian democrat nation, sort of a 'white l...

Re: Next Generation Military System of the Day

I do not understand why western armies discarded rifle grenades. Eastern armies do not seem to have deep sixed the concept. They were an unpleasant weapon to go against as recently as the Yugoslavian wars. These were simple systems in some cases the designs were quickly lashed up by technicians, pyr...

Re: Next Generation Military System of the Day

Rifleman's Assault Weapon. Invented in 1977 & used on a limited basis by the USMC through the 1990's. What is the deal? Sounds like political corruption killed it. There was an antitank version which was never put into series production. I know nothing about the field performance of it. It seems...

Re: If Cnaada joins America, would they support a Trump dyna

Trump would make a Deal with the Bronfmans & Powercorp behind Trudeau's back. I would be all for it if he got rid of the provincial monopolies & *supposedly non existant* family compacts. Also would support him if he got rid of the Canadian aftermarket car parts industry & replaced it wi...

Re: Tomes, scholarly papers, and essays on Canadian affairs

The quote is from the article at the link. Small feel good ctry & all, yet there is still a large gap between Cdn.politicians &their populism, and the day to day business of Canada. The initial guidelines given to the first Canadian ICC commissioner, Sherwood Lett, provide some evidence of C...

What has the PM said now?

Is there a transcript somewhere showing the text of Trudeau's comments which have drawn a fiery response from US officials? There is between sfa and nothing on them in Cdn. media, but I have been lazy about that. In addition, could it be that the PM is controlled by his supposedly fake eyebrows? Fin...

Cold War era civilian collateral casualties



A typical example above. How many were there in all? Someone somewhere must have a tally. Just as the result of training accidents?

Re: Video of the day

xeUOUNNpYMc I seem to recall sitting through this insipid film some time ago. It is something forgettable but for Jody Foster being in it. The entire media ball of the 1970's gets lost & every once in a while a tentacle from it reaches out from the mists of time. Never with something useful tho...

The Picton case.

http://altereddimensions.net/2016/robert-pickton-pig-farm-serial-killer It is much worse than you think. Similar things may still be going on. There was an entire Canadian TV series, Davinci's Inquest which had this subject as one of the story arcs. For a Canadian TV series it was not all that bad. ...
