Q since you are in love with you own version of something that sounds quite impressive. Let me know the name and phone number of any "Tier One' group you associate with.

Are you saying that Q is a fantasist and a poseur ?
Perhaps a pathological liar?

Regime change,

hahaha, now in Syria, yeah that's worked out so well hasn't it? Do I have to point to the success of Iraq, or maybe Libya fuckers? Oh yeah, I know Canada was in Libya much to our shame. Our former Prime Minister will not be looked upon kindly in the history books.

Where did those ISIS guys come from, hey? Your military is likely to start WW3 given your current POTUS and his actions. Good luck to us all.

And, fuck off.

You'll be lucky if you have any history books if your current prime minister represents the future of Canada.

I honestly cannot fathom why people seem to fall over loving that guy. Seems fake and manufactured as shit to me.

interesting J-DAM like munitions. can't be more than 250 lb. bombs from the looks. Times 6 for max load. seems like quite a load for that airframe. NTM the Sniper pod under the fuselage. noticed the backseat Wizzo. Also noticed lack of gun ports on wings. wonder if hard points can carry external gunpods. definitely not low tech. or low maintenance. Steve Canyon, where are you?

this began with IOMAX and Erik's love of traditional STOL aircraft used with hard points. Erik bought a Tucano and leased it to the Air Force but the Air Tractor was a better and cheaper front line aircraft. They do some weird "gifting" scam where the UAE buys them, they fly them via Malta and then they end up in Libya, Somalia, Eritrea and Yemen. http://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft ... ft_id=1674

I can't speak for other Canucks here but I don't think he is that widely loved other than the media. I think he got in because the Conservatives got stupid. They were in the lead in the last election then decided to make their campaign about how much they hated Trudeau. It didn't work for them. That being said Canucks are boy scouts and have a mild tendancy to stick up for their leader unless they really hate him.

As far as the fake and manufactured part, he was in the public eye from birth as his dad was PM at the time. Or maybe Castro is his dad.
