Meh, it's not like the US would allow it. We're too small a nation - population wise - to compete on a military front so it's simply a waste of money. We can kick in a few billion a year for Our NATO responsibilities but that should be the extent of it. Either that or just build a mess hypersonic nukes and call it a day.

Russia was never the military power they were claimed to be anyway. That was all propaganda for the MIC. They had a really good documentary on PBS recently about how that was all jive. Besides if there's a next major actual conventional war my money is on US and China. It seems like a clash is inevitable somewhere down the road.


It is precisely when the US and China get into it, that Russia will make their moves. Their will be no one to oppose them then. They'll annex more of Ukraine, some of Belarus, and probably the Baltics wholesale. And given their arctic moves over the past decades, I wouldn't be surprised if they moved on some of those northern Canadian islands.

Eh, I don't know why we even waste money on a military anymore. We don't have nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons, why not get rid of it all. There's a lot better places to spend that 22 billion.

Agreed

I mean, sure, you guys didn't want the NW and Yukon territories anyway, did you?

Kinda proud to be Canadian right now. xD

That soldier will be lucky to hear his dog barking when he's 60, given that he (unlike the other soldiers) had no ear protection.

Also, the US doesn't use arty to slaughter civvies. That's so 20th century. These days it's all about drones. And in fact, very specialized weapons designed to eliminate civilian casualties have been developed, deployed, and employed.

One unprotected shot like this won't permanently damage your hearing ( altho it might trigger tinnitus if you already mistreated your ears with loud music in your past, I know that from experience ). Multiple over time will probably get you tinnitus.

A sustained bombardment, whether on the sending or receiving end without hearing protection will destroy it in no time flat.
