Isn't Canadian technology an oxymoron?
You are thinking of Canadian Armed Forces. Well, technically, they do have arms as well as legs so maybe we should call them the Canadian Armed and Legged Forces!
:cof: We shouldn't trash those guys, they're only as effective as our govenment allows them to be, pitty really.
I have worked with the Canadian Army in the past...they have my respect for sure.
That's what bugs me, it's not the men and women serving, it the government that needs to slapped up side the head for allowing them to walk around like a joke. The way the Canadian media bashes them makes me sick.
Yes, my post likely came out harsher than the meaning behind it. I think it is nearly criminal that sports stars make millions of dollars a year while a "mere" soldier putting his life on the line for his country is barely recognized.
Uh oh, wife just came home and I haven't been cleaning. Later!
usa also spying on china.
Said1, what do you think has happened (changed so profoundly) in the last thirty-five years (or so) that America and Canada are on divergent paths into the future? From what I have read, the internal politics and foreign policy of Canada and America were similar from the end of WW2 through the mid-1960s. Now, they are on different planets from each other. What happened? I am not asking about the political divergence. Something more fundamental is happening. Our cultural navigation systems have set us on a course away from each other. Why are America and Australia on a similar path that is so different from Canada?
As you know, the Chinese are continuously spying on America. It is thought that they have even obtained nuclear weapon designs. There will be no reduction of Chinese spying on the West. It will increase in the future. Except, the French intend to sell China advanced weaponry, which will make the need to spy a bit less urgent. The Chinese will simply reverse engineer pre-packaged high-tech weapons instead of needing to steal the designs.
Hey dumbass, the article is about China spying on CANADA. Doh!
