C. The CAF After 1945
Cold War Canada: Or, how I learned to stop worrying and love the US Military
The Americans have always had a stronger military than us, but there was a time, long ago, when we still had a motivation to keep our own forces strong and numerous independent of them. Upon the dawn of the cold war, this motivation was altered, but it did not immediately decimate our military. NATO article 5 meant that the Americans would automatically be drawn into conflict if any other NATO member were attacked. In a functional sense, this made the Americans responsible for the defence of all NATO countries, including Canada. Fortunately, the Canadian government and the CAF still managed to give at least part of a shit for that time period, if only to maintain optics. We once had a glorious base in Grostequin, France, just look at this beautiful scene:
In fact, we had a variety of substantial military installations across Europe as part of an effort to play the NATO game. Though the US was functionally responsible for NATO defence, there was an expectation that other countries would contribute somewhat to its existence. The threat of the hammer and sickle garnered sufficient support from the residents of other NATO countries for their respective governments to actually put effort in. Here at home, there were numerous bases, stations, and other installations all over the country. The variety of postings was absolutely splendid, and a person could expect to have a meaningful and thorough career working for something they believed in. Furthermore, they could realistically interact with blokes from all sorts of other militaries and learn something new.
Gorbachev, burgers, and the end of USSR
The USSR opened its first
American Embassy McDonalds in January of 1990, and things collapsed about a year later, for reasons that might have not been entirely cheeseburger related. While this may be seen as things starting to go right for our Russian friends, it was definitely where things went wrong over here. The cold war threat of communism was the duct tape that held most of the western world together. In spite of all variety of degradation in our economy, society, family, and infrastructure, there was a somewhat common bond of not wanting to live in communism that maintained integrity in the west. After the union disintegrated, so did our duct tape. The rot that had been hidden here for decades came out to full visibility. The fast-paced change of the 1990s in the west masked this with a false sense of hope for the future, but in fact, things unravelled very quickly, coming to a head in 2008. As for the CAF, the budget was reduced drastically after 1991, and we saw most of our overseas installations close, or become shells of what they once were. Even within Canada, most of the small remote installations were closed, and many locations were consolidated into single bases to save money. CFB Calgary, CFB Uplands, and CFB Lahr (In Germany) are more noteworthy examples, but there have been dozens if you include the smaller radar stations. It was very clear that the good times were over, and change was in the air. NATO still existed, and the problem of American responsibility came back to haunt the rest of the organization; Without a grumpy ushanka-wearing Soviet soldier waving an AK at us, what was our point of existence? We weren’t opposing the Soviets anymore, nor were we opposing national socialists in Germany, or communists in Korea, or Japanese in Hong Kong. The prior rallying cries to service were gone, at least for a while.
Afghanistan: Why are we here? How do we leave?
In 2001, we began operations in Afghanistan as part of NATO, in the wake of the Islamic attacks on the world trade center, if you believe the official story. Our presence in Afghanistan lasted until 2014, though the primary mission ended in 2011. What was that mission? The Canadian War Museum defines it as follows: “Canadian soldiers fought alongside NATO and Afghan partners to secure key areas from the Taliban.” Why were we securing those areas? Why were we in Afghanistan at all? The general understanding is that we were fighting Islamic extremists (Taliban) in an effort to promote modernity, democracy, and rule of law (please keep your laughter to a minimum). It was motivational enough. The CAF had a reason to exist again, though not to the degree that we did prior to 1991. All of the training and imaginary scenarios used for the CAF were transitioned towards fighting insurgency, rather than the classic Soviet boogeyman. Identifying locations for Katyusha rocket trucks on maps was binned, and focusing on homemade bombs was in vogue.
There was a bit of a problem though. What was the threat of Taliban control to Canada? The Soviet threat was tangible, as had been most of our other declared enemies; If Soviets/Nazis/Japanese win, their troops will march through our streets and we’ll be forced to speak Russian/German/Pokémon. Our way of life was at stake, at least in theory, and the folks back home believed it. But that wasn’t really the case in Afghanistan. Sure, the television made people believe that the Taliban were bad, but they certainly weren’t an existential threat to Canada. They couldn’t have cared less about Canada, at least outside of our incursion on their homeland. Why did the Taliban even exist? They came into existence, at least partially, as an alternative to the Mujahadeen after the Soviets left with their tail between their legs in 1989. Eventually they came to power in 1996 after a war, and remained in power until US/NATO incursion in 2001. Then, they came back to power in 2021 after NATO left, also with its tail between its legs. What was the point in being there, and what did we accomplish? We built roads and wells and other stuff for the local population in order to ‘win hearts and minds’. We shot at Taliban and their sympathizers, and likely made more sympathizers in the process à la Vietnam.
What did we hope to accomplish long term, though? Afghanistan is nearly unchangeable. The Greeks failed, the English failed, the Punjabs failed, the Mongols failed, the Soviets failed twice, yet NATO expected to succeed? Only a fool would have such expectations. Therefore, either we were fools to set foot in that cursed land, or we were there for other reasons, whatever they may be. In either case, it was a horrible war in which Canadian soldiers died for no tangible benefit outside of profits for arms manufacturers, while Afghans died trying to defend their homeland and (admittedly awful) way of life against foreign interference. And it all came crashing down in 2021 after the US left in tatters. Imagine witnessing the absolute and total failure of 20 years of blood and death, and not feeling betrayal. What did 158 Canadian soldiers die for? How did our sacrifice change the outcome in any meaningful way, since the Taliban swooped in and immediately continued where they had left off?
Back full circle
Afghanistan is over, and now we are back to pretending to care about the Russians, but with the complete and total knowledge that we have not a snowball’s chance in hell of even delaying them for an hour.
I did think it was pretty funny when Justin Trudeau was bloviating about how he was considering enforcing a no fly zone in Ukraine, but he decided against it because it could escalate to nuclear war. It totally wasn’t because Canada has no serious ability to project power on the World Stage. You see, we could have stopped Russia from flying aircraft, but we just diplomatically decided not to.
We have troops in a variety of eastern European locations, such as Latvia. What do we do there? We pretend to be soldiers, I suppose, by doing training exercises with other militaries. Essentially, we (and the others there) exist solely to exist, such that a scratched fingernail by the Russians would be an act of war, and NATO article 5 could rear its head. That’s all we could possibly be in eastern Europe: A speed bump for Vlad, installed in Russia’s backyard. As discussed in detail, we stand there as a representation of what the western world has become; degeneracy, sodomy, race-baiting, diversity, an interesting mixture of the failing Roman empire and Weimar Germany, a land with no certain future.
Why would a person want to join the CAF to do something like that? Money and opportunity to see foreign lands are the main reasons I suppose. Those who actually believe in the western ideal are fully aware that we have no chance of defending it against Russia (See Ukraine) and those who don’t believe in it are obviously along for the fun, and will jump ship as soon as it ends, or threaten to jump ship in order to get more. Why should they remain loyal to anything but their own satisfaction?
Furthermore, is it really a stretch for CAF members to look at Russia and see them as less of a bad guy than we [NATO] might be? Russia at least pretends to promote itself and its traditional values, while protecting them from western destructive influence. Though their actions are horrendous at times, one must commend them for consistency and unambiguity in their motivations. The Russian military, likewise, appears to serve a regime which represents them as Russians, and seeks to keep their way of life intact.
That is a lot more than we can say about Canada, which doesn’t even have uniquely Canadian values; our stated values are a uniform piece issued by the parasite that has taken hold of NATO countries, often referred to pejoratively as globohomo. As for Ukraine, we have absolutely no right to complain about what Russia does in their neighbour’s backyard, when we spent over a decade romping around in a country that we had absolutely no reason to be in, simply because the Americans went in first.
The Check Engine Light is on, but nobody is home
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!
-The CDS [Chief of Defense Staff], probably
Have you ever been blessed by the Check Engine Light (CEL) on your car? Count yourself lucky if you haven’t, but most of us have had to greet it at some point. It indicates that a computer within the car’s operational systems has detected something wrong, and is letting you know. Of course, many cars also have other, separate warning lights for things like brakes, airbags, and electrical problems, but the CEL is the most common one to appear, and often shows up due to things like vacuum leaks, broken oxygen sensors, and exhaust gas recirculation valves that aren’t valving anymore. If one blesses you at any point, the correct thing is to check the cause(s), either using a hand-held scanner, or using dedicated computer software if you can get it. This will tell you what specific error is causing it to illuminate. Of course, this pragmatic attitude is easy for people with a mechanical inclination, who aren’t afraid of cars, and have an understanding of their workings. If you aren’t one of those people, the CEL can be quite frightening, as it might imply spending money on repairs. But more frightening than the CEL itself is the root cause. If you leave the light alone, you can assume something is wrong but ignore the severity, whereas if you check the actual cause, you remove all doubts, and will be presented with the problem however severe it is. You could think of it like Schrodinger’s engine; The problem is both inconsequential and catastrophic until you check; If it’s a German car, probably both.
I think that the CAF has had its CEL on for a while, decades in fact. A few of the drivers have checked the CEL in the past, but discovered that it was just an oxygen sensor, not the sort of thing that will kill the car in any short amount of time. They subsequently pretended to do something without actually crawling underneath to deal with it, as that would require work. Or maybe they didn’t have the tools to do it at the time. Over time, the CEL remained on, but additional problem codes started accumulating. The leaders, through fear, apathy, or otherwise, continued driving since the car was still moving under its own power. A few brave souls did actually open the hood of the car a few times, but they were overwhelmed by the myriad of hoses and wires and quickly got back in the cab and hoped for the best, despite the fact that the engine was now making strange noises at idle.
In Autumn of 2021, the CDS drove the car headfirst into a road sign reading Exit 69: Vaccine Mandate Boulevard. We don’t know if he was drunk or if his boss, who was in the car at the time, told him to do it or face consequences. After duct taping the front end together, he lumbered the car back to National Defence Headquarters to inspect the damage, thoroughly surprised that the car was even still moving. Upon arriving, every light on the dash was on, and something was dripping (don’t tell the environmentalists!) from near the engine. The CDS decided that instead of pulling codes and fixing the accumulation of damage, he would instead buy new rims and a new stereo to make himself, his boss, and the taxpayers feel better about the car, while also adding a rainbow flag sticker on the back.
Since the CDS doesn’t want to plug in a scanner and check things out, maybe we can take a quick look instead. First, let’s scan the car for how many deployable personnel there are:
I see. Not bad. We’re at 71% deployable, with deployable meaning ready to go out the door tomorrow and do military stuff. Maybe, if we’re lucky, we’ll be able to defend against the Chinese for 3 hours instead of 1. There’s a problem though: According to the National Post, the CAF is already about 10,000 people short as of January 2022. That’s about a 10% shortfall, not insignificant at all. As that number grows, the effects of it will also increase geometrically, burdening those who stay in and forcing reduction in capability.
How about we now inspect the damage from driving into that road sign?
Oof, that’s not good! For those watching at home, in addition to the ~10% already missing, we have about another 10% who have either refused the jabs, or refused to state their jab status. Fortunately, the CAF can just remove the mandate and they can all hug and forget it ever happened, right? HA! I highly doubt that. Of the variety of CAF members that I spoke to who have declined the vaccine, all of them are adamant about leaving the CAF, as they still feel the knife wound in their back, and I hardly think they are a fringe case. Good luck ever convincing them to return. If my math is correct, we are on track for the CAF to be at 80% manning or less in the very near future, regardless of any decisions or cancellations on the mandatory jab policy. I want you to pay attention as well to some specific lines in this image. Note the line for requesting accommodation under religion (CHRA) and compare it to the lower line for how many of those accommodations were actually granted. 443 CAF members requested exemption due to their faith, but only 26 of those were granted as of January. The only possible reason for such a delay is political interference and meddling in the process, as an honest approach would yield those accommodations almost immediately. Of course, an honest approach would not have allowed this situation to begin with, nor would it have warranted me writing this diatribe at all.
I’ve talked to a few CAF veterans before A. Nonymous, and there’s some speculation that a lot of guys intentionally didn’t get vaccinated because it gave them a way out of the military without being dishonourably discharged. To make a very long story short, they got in, and found it to be not at all what it was hyped up to be, for pretty much the reasons that A. Nonymous highlights in this piece and the preceding ones. Only if anything he seriously downplays the extreme organizational incompetence.
But that belongs in a different piece.
I don’t know how this could possibly be fixed, to be completely frank. Even if I joined the CAF tomorrow and became CDS the day after, I am sure that I couldn’t do more than a slight polish on the turd, so I guess I need to cut the existing CDS and his recent predecessors some slack. Maybe they see that it’s pointless, so they’re crashing the plane with no survivors like someone who failed their mission in Grand Theft Auto, just to see what would happen. But unlike a plane in a game, this one has real troops in it, insofar as they consider filthy plebs to be human.
As a confirmation of what we now know to be true, word on the street is that over 9000 (no pun intended) have been released thus far (July) in 2022 alone. That is absolutely insane, yet totally predictable. Who even knows how many of these are jab related or due to other reasons? If I lived in viewing distance of NDHQ, I think it would be a good time to just crack open a cold one and enjoy the chaos.
All Good Things Come To An End
Everything under heaven is in utter chaos; the situation is excellent.
So, where do we go from here? Nowhere, in all likelihood. We are where we will be in ten years, that being a state of decay. The CAF will continue to exist permanently in a state of managed decline, while impotently attempting to solve its problems by using them recursively as solutions, as though it were an alcoholic trying to drink itself sober. The acknowledgement of any of the root causes (with the CAF or country at large) is or will be imminently illegal to say, as the country rapidly becomes an absolute police state but with rainbow stickers and emojis (see England for a glimpse of the future). Though the CAF may see itself investing in new equipment, it will be absolutely pointless as our gravest enemies are the ones writing our orders, not a bunch of Russian lads or inexperienced Chinese generals. Any future kinetic conflicts the CAF finds itself in will almost certainly be elective, and located in irrelevant holes that the world forgot about for a reason, with no bearing on our collapsing country whatsoever. The realization of this truth, even subconsciously, will ensure that the CAF recruits and retains primarily the self-interested, who will stay only as long as they get what they want out of it. In other words, a green welfare. As these individuals infest the CoC, they themselves will perpetuate apathy by disregarding their peers and subordinates in the name of what is easy for them. Ultimately, the regime doesn’t need the CAF anymore in its traditional capacity, at least not outside of their capacity to virtue signal; The militarized police are likely capable of fighting their true enemies if need be, those being any citizens who question their forced march towards the end of a way of life.
The bold in the above is all mine, and it’s difficult to not write an entire 10,000 word essay that can be adequately summed up as “what he said.” I’ve written two pieces on how the RCMP is essentially the military in Canada, and are probably a better fighting force than the actual infantry.
As far as institutional capture by parasites, this is something I should probably write more about. If we had real sociologists this would be a well understood phenomenon, but the same reason why Amazon Studio’s Rangz of the Kangz is so unnecessarily bad, even beyond asinine politics, is why Globo Homo Schlomo can’t just snap their fingers and right this ship. There are so many mid level parasites who have a serious stake in things as they are, and will actively fight to change things.
But again, that’s for a different piece.
The CAF won’t cease to be, however, as such a move would be political suicide for any party which tries it. What, then, will it be primarily used for? I’d imagine that domestic problems will be the primary focus of the CAF, mainly natural disasters. The CAF is already leveraged to assist with things like flooding and forest fires, though primarily for manual labour like moving sandbags and digging holes, and its role in these oft-yearly events will likely expand as provincial governments have come to expect the CAF to fill in the holes in their own disaster contingencies. In Canada’s slow quick descent to tyranny, we can plausibly expect the CAF to also fill the role of enforcers or presence patrols to project the authority of the regime in cases where the people have the audacity to publicly question the deletion of their liberties, à la trucker convoy, though this will likely be only in a limited fashion and only as a backup in case the cops get tired or go on vacation. Outside of these potential use cases, the CAF will send its members about to represent the values of inclusion and diversity by doing nothing, while the regime sends more cash to their friends by purchasing more unnecessary equipment from their seedy companies. At the end of the day, it will be another toy for the regime to show to everyone; a decrepit tractor become lawn ornament. The show is over, hopefully you had fun.
Thanks to A. Nonymous for this gigantic paper, and thanks to JN, he knows who he is, for putting me in touch with this man. I’m always very interested in the accounts of people this close to the ground.
His conclusion seems pretty likely to me. ZOG doesn’t need Canada to have a military for the same reason they don’t need Ireland to have a military, or the state of Delaware. The natural resources that make Canada militarily/geopolitically valuable, such as oil, uranium, and potash, will be made freely accessible by Israel’s Main Bitch, the United States of America. So there’s little point in Canada having a military that can do diddly squat in terms of international affairs.
But they also don’t need the Canadian Military to do any sort of populist uprising quellings, because the RCMP is thoroughly militarized already. Instead, the Canadian Military essentially doesn’t exist, but still sucks down well over $20 billion of the taxpayers precious dollars each year to put on “White Fragility Seminars.”
Like A. Nonymous said, at this point there’s no saving it, at least not from within. But even externally, is there really that much left to save? It appears to be akin to a wooden house with a thoroughly rotten superstructure. We’re going to need to start over right from scratch.
In WWI and WWII soldiers fought for King and country.
Now we have a purely mercenary force, seemingly organized by a bunch of soccer moms. The CAF offers a range of tattoo and nose-ring friendly “career” options. Up for grabs are “competitive salaries”; medical, dental, and vision care benefits; family support; vacation; maternity and parental leave; retirement plans; etc, etc, etc.
And yet there don’t seem to be many takers. Very interesting. The Canadian pleb seems to be wising up; and/or else noticing the institution’s total lack of higher purpose or values.
Anyhow, great analysis – thank you for publishing!
