    A War Like No Other (Part IV)

    Many years ago I had the privilege of firing the 3-inch gun of a Canadian Firefly Sherman tank at the Meaford tank range in Ontario. I found that even with WWII optics, I could hit any object I could see. Since the gun had an effective range of 1.5 kms and a maximum range of 10.5 kms, this could be a very long way away indeed. I mention this because guns and optics have improved a lot since 1945 and presumably Russian gunners today can now lob shells through windows many miles away. Even so, this distance isn’t enough. The American Javelin Anti-Tank missile has an effective range of between…

    A War Like No Other (Part III)

    Hail the conquering infantryman! That appears to be one lesson of the current Special Military Operation by Russia in Ukraine. In the past any fighting in open country would be led by tanks. But because of the lethality of Anti-Tank missiles, tanks and infantry fighting vehicles are now left behind. It’s up to foot soldiers to push the contact line. Take this platoon of Chechen infantry. Those you can see are spread down the road over 200 feet. Other photos show more trailing well behind. This means the tail can swing left or right to enfilade an ambush attempt. If the platoon hits a strong point, it’s taken out with…

    A War Like No Other (Part II)

    The Ukraine army was prepared for Russia with modern weapons, Manpads (Man Portable Air Defence Systems) and MPATS (Man Portable Anti Tank Systems). That’s why it spread strongpoints all over the countryside so that an attack on any one of them would be enfiladed from either side. Since the effective range of MPATS, like the British NLAW (Next Generation Light Anti Tank Weapon) is a thousand metres, these strong points are quite far apart. After the shocking discovery of how vulnerable tanks and aircraft were to these weapons in the first stages of the war, the Russian military completely changed its tactics. First, it switched to cruise missiles for high…

    A War Like no Other

    The war in Ukraine has come as a nasty surprise to the soldiers fighting it. None of their expectations have come true and tactics, and weapons, have had to be changed on the fly. In this dynamic process the Ukraine Armed Forces (UAF) are clearly on the defensive. Quite apart from losing one village after another in the Donbas, the UAF has been unable to establish any “front line” outside existing infrastructure. Any armoured vehicle, weapons pit or trench line out in the open is quickly targeted by artillery guided by Unmanned Ariel Vehicles (UAVs) and destroyed (The photo from a UAV at the top of the page shows a…

    The Madness of Europe

    Boris Johnson has visited Volodymyr Zelensky in Kiev and promised more aid in Ukraine’s war with Russia. NATO is bolstering its forces on its Eastern frontier. Germany is refusing to pay for gas in Rubles. Sweden and Finland are considering joining NATO. The United States is sending more lethal aid. Have all these leaders gone stark raving mad? British and American special forces have been in Ukraine fighting Russia since February, according to French intelligence sources. This means on the ground, where it counts, NATO already has blood on its hands. This isn’t Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, or Serbia; this is Russia, the largest country in the World, and we, the…

    Putin is the New Saint George

    I wrote last year Russia is the best country in Europe. Now, in battling the American hegemon in Ukraine, Russia is standing up for European ideas, culture, morality and race, while the rest of Europe (excepting Hungary) is helping to destroy everything it created. In the battle between Good and Evil, Vladimir Putin is the new St. George. This is hardly an exaggeration. Putin stands for the Nation, Christianity, Family Values and the kind of morality most of us grew up with. Joe Biden’s America, on the other hand, now believes in homosexuality, transgenderism, woke ideology, abortion on demand, open borders, sexually grooming minors and black supremacy. If that isn’t…

    The New Shape of War

    The Machine Gun in WWI ended age of offensive warfare, specifically the cavalry charge. The response of military thinkers was the Tank. Now, in Ukraine, the age of the tank appears to be over; ambushed, stalled and destroyed by suicide drones and fire-and-forget anti-tank missiles. The Russians, attempting to block an advance by NATO and the U.S. up to their border, are the unhappy initial recipients of this harsh change in the nature of warfare. To be clear, suicide drones, or Kamikaze drones, are unmanned aircraft that don’t fire missiles but are missiles. They are capable of circling above a target and waiting for 15 to 40 minutes before striking…

    Canada, as a democracy, is Essentially Finished

    Imagine this; a minority party gets the support of a socialist party and gets the parliament to give the executive sweeping powers. Germany, 1933? No, Canada last night. The NDP voted with the minority liberals 185 to 151 to pass the equivalent of martial law. It’s so bad in this country right now that Parliament was cancelled in order to let the police enforce an act, the Emergencies Act, that would allow the police to do so. This is exactly like ordering an execution before holding the trial. And that’s not all. The demonstration was legal and funding it was legal until suddenly it wasn’t legal and funding it was…

    How Globalists will Move People off the Land

    If you’ve ever read about Agenda-21―the plan to depopulate much of Europe and North America―you’ve probably wondered how Globalists would do it. Now I know, and in a few minutes you will too. The key development, assuming they don’t go for the nuclear option, will be to abolish traditional agriculture, specifically the farming of domestic animals: buffalo, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys and chickens. The way they’re going to do it is with laboratory-grown meat, now relabeled “cultured,” “cultivated,” or “clean” meat. It’s like a stampede. In 2020, investors poured more than $1.2 billion into startups around the world working on cell-cultured meat according to Crunchbase news. Big meat companies,…
