  1. That doesn't address China's blue sea ambitions...or the reason why they wish to project the kind of power an aircraft carrier exerts...nor will that comfort India and Pakistan (and Tibet) who have come to arms with China. Now I suppose for the myopic, the only reason to have a navy is to thwart an invasion...again, that is a moo point
  2. Of course they are. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/08/16/paul-zings-rivals-in-new-ad/ http://piersmorgan.blogs.cnn.com/2011/08/16/clips-from-last-night-mark-sanford-on-the-tea-party-rep-ron-paul-on-democrats/?hpt=pm_mid http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/hannity/2011/08/16/could-christie-palin-paul-ryan-still-jump-gop-race http://politics.blogs.foxnews.com/2011/08/12/power-play-live-video-ron-paul-i-think-were-gonna-do-well-1
  3. Correct. Canada does, most of the world does not. Even Iceland doesn't have a cold water navy.
  4. There isn't really any need for most of the world to project force north of Iceland.
  5. Okay, no they don't. Most navies have no need to venture into the north or south poles.
  6. Maybe you would rather explain then who you were referring to:
  7. Correct. His silly attachments are for UFOs http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1360737/I-believe-UFOs--Ive-seen-says-ex-defence-minister-Paul-Hellyer.html
  8. Does that mean you are retracting your statement about mothballing fleets?
  9. No I haven't noticed anyone mothballing their fleets. The british are adding 9 new vessels...the US is adding newer Aircraft carriers, destroyers...the Chinese are conducting sea trials on their first aircraft carrier... Was it in a dream this idea came to you?
  10. More powerful, perhaps, more versatile, not a chance.
  11. They won't be decommissioning the average...they will decommission the oldest. In the case of destroyers...that 20 years old while the frigates are over 30 years.
  12. So outdated ships that our allies deem unworthy?
  13. Obviuosly one must accept consubstantiality or risk being burned at the stake
  14. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/editorials/the-canadian-forces-names-a-mark-of-respect/article2130372/ It is about that..period. And not the snide musings of fetishes or what ever puerile thought someone has about the conservatives.
  15. So does that mean they were no Betsy approved Christians prior to the 1870?
  16. I believe eroding the espirit de corps was a wrong. So was turning our backs on a very meritorious and proud history
  17. probably not....flight lieutenant, flight commander...wing commander...leading airman...would confuse the media too much
  18. Fair enough. No, you don't have a point.
  19. Which point? Is there a point in that, or is there "probably" a point?
  20. If anyone remembers Paul Hellyer, they will remember the man that nearly destroyed the morale of Royal Canadian Air Force, The Canadian Army and Her Majesties Royal Canadian Navy... He is also the man who created a absurdly large command infrastructure which has hampered the armed forces to this day. If anyone knows Hellyer today, they know him as the looney tune UFO nut... http://www.torontoaircrew.com/Pilot_Class/MarchPast.mp3
  21. You might be missing his point... http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/interactive/2011/mar/22/middle-east-protest-interactive-timeline
