    well said

  2. Re: Canadian Army Site

    Canada is probably on par with the US in terms of training and technology (britian leads in military technology). but America Has a huge military our trained military is about equal to chinas (they are said to be bigger because they have a large milita). and the U.S. spends more on military spending then anyone else by far. we spend about 6 times as much as china does.

    Are you serious that there is a law that all websites in canada must have a french version? English is the international language why would they need to force people to use french?

    Re: Canadian Army Site

    The Canadian army is a good army.
    I've worked with them in a few places and had several oportunites to train with them.

    All armies have their positives and negatives and even these shift from time to time depending on current operations, mindsets of the public opinion, recruits, and individuals.... as both are made up of individuals. Problems in either army can often be seen as a reflection of it's host nation's people.

    For a foreign army unit to be awarded the US Presidential Unit Citation (PUC) speaks highly of that unit. (I have been in two units (US) when we were awarded them for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan). You simply dont see a lot of the cross nation 'awarding' of many awards.

    Ive never been unimpressed with my experiences in working with the Canadians.

    It seriously is. 30% of the Canadian population is Francophone. If u drive anyone where in Canada, road signs are in English and then French. (Except Quebec where its French first, then English - and in some cases no english at all). Go to any Canadian government website and its offered in both languages. It all has to do with History on why its the way it is. Go to your local library or google to learn more about Canada's development in the 19th century.

    To keep it short enough to read, I'll lay down a few interesting points in abreviated form.

    -Canadian Forces are as well trained as any major nation in the world. This includes Britian and the US. In fact, Canadians hold thier own in any international military skills competition, and we have many titles to our credit.

    -Canadian Special Forces are often cross-trained with, and serve with US Navy Seals and British SAS. Their training is on par with any special forces unit in the world.

    -Canada has earned many distinctions, including high profile awards from Britain and the US for it's service in every major allied conflict since WW1. This includes, but is not limited to:

    -The Presidential Unit Citation for the PPCLI (Princess Partricia's Canadian Light infantry) for it's stand at Kapyong in Korea.

    -Canada's elite military unit, JTF2, was also awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for service in Afghanistan in 2004, but the Canadian government denied the award. The reason they stated was it would be in the best interest of the unit to keep it out of the public spotlight that would come with an international award such as a presidential citation.

    -Several individuals of Canadian units serving in Afghanistan in 2002 received the US Bronze Star Medal.

    -The current record for longest range sniper kill is 2,430 meters (7,972 feet), accomplished by a Canadian sniper, Corporal Rob Furlong, of the third battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (3 PPCLI), during the invasion of Afghanistan, using a .50 BMG (12.7 mm) McMillan bolt-action rifle. This meant that the round had a flight time of four seconds, and a drop of 78.4 meters (257 feet). The previous record was held by Carlos Hathcock, achieved during the Vietnam War, at a distance of 2,250 meters.

    -The second longest confirmed kill by a sniper is now also held by a Canadian serving in Afghanistan.


    I have served with Yanks, Brits, Aussies, and a couple of Belgians, and I would put my life in any of thier hands. They all do things a little differently, but each nation has modified it's training to fit it's needs, and all are very capable.

    When it comes to modern armies, they are all very similar with the exception of thier technology. While Canada has some state of the art technology, our numbers simply cannot compare to a major nation like the US or Britian. When you consider that we are a country of 10% of the population of the US, we do very well in our own right.

    This is 100% true

    During wargames (not sure when or w/e) we were using the coyote reconnaissance vehicle, and we kept spotting the americans before they could see us. Afterwards there general came up to the canadians and accused them of cheating
