    Liberal World Order

    Since you've focused this thread on the RBIO, I'll keep my commentary on that. The RBIO is a well-established and long-serving concept, and it even has its own wikipedia page, so its not some consiracy that has just come to light - its the rules of the game that have been recognized by the West...

    Liberal World Order

    I'm not being facetious. The liberal democratic order, or rules based international order, is literally in every 100-level political science textbook. What is it that we suppose has been uncovered here?

    Someone should type in "FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure."

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Mr Amar is a leading scholar of the Constitution. His view on this is illuminating as to the jurisprudence. https://akhilamar.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/The-End-of-Roe-v.-Wade-WSJ-1.pdf

    A Deeply Fractured US

    That's a good point - you notice how we never talk about "Liberal" or "Conservative" supreme court justices here in Canada? In fact, we barely talk about the Supreme Court at all, which is rather nice.

    Clearly, its a consiracy.

    America’s ‘Dirty Secret’- USMC General Admits ‘Wicked’ Logistics Problems In Western Pacific To Battle China

    Not a surprise at all to anyone who pays attention to history. The US was wrestling with this problem in the 1920s with War Plan Orange and the debate between the Thrusters and the Cautionaries, the latter who recognized the need for a logistical trail to be established to fight a war in the...

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    A useful video for this thread, as the Canadian evolution only breaks off from this in the 1970s.

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    RG-31 - Motorized. 3-07 began BG transition to 2x big coys (4 Pls) which continued to 1-08 (2 PPCLI) and 3-08 (3 RCR). 1-09 (2 R22eR) shifted back to three companies. I think 1-10 (1 RCR) saw the BG absorb the PRT company too. You've completely mixed missions. Those Rotos were force...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    That depends. There is a balance to be struck between combined arms interoperability and the efficiency of managing and training for a capability. In many cases, it is easier to break down into smaller, temporary combined arms teams than it is to build up larger groups. In some cases, you...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Again, I'll refer to doctrine. Land Ops states that a battle group (BG) is a combined arms tactical organization task tailored for operations based upon a unit headquarters (usually an armour, mounted recce, or infantry unit), consisting of manoeuvre subunits with integral cbt sp and CSS, a...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Only for Roto 0. By Roto 1, all elements were starting to mechanize. Roto 2 had a motorized company, but after that, they were pretty much all mechanized.

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Let's go back to the definition of Light Forces in B-GL-300-001. Light forces are defined as military forces rapidly deployable at all levels of command and optimized for terrain and conditions not suited to mechanized forces. They have significant strategic mobility, as they can be transported...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    What is a "flexible response brigade" and what does it do when "exploratory" transitions to "the close fight" in an instant? February 24th wasn't an exploratory fight, it was a poorly executed conventional invasion. It is highly likely that if the plan wouldn't have rested on faulty Russian...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    I'll just echo the comment above. We need to be careful about the lessons we infer from Ukraine, because we are seeing a distorted picture through curated twitter releases. The image of the plucky little tank hunting team stopping the Russians short of Kyiv was more a product of a flawed...
