Ever hear of tankers? They give unlimited range.

In any case, the fighters aren't re reason we're currently in debt.

Reason #1: the stimulus spending, as mentioned in the OP. Demanded by all opposition parties.
Reason #2: reduced GST revenue. Politically savvy, but economically dumb.

yup
yup

The number 1 is what really pissed me off though. The Libs right now are going on about.. the cons led us down this path!!! Somehow forgetting that less then 3 months after our last election they tried to force a change in government because "we are not doing enough" to combat the economic problems...solution... Cons come back with an insane spending budget and even then crowing.. ITS NOT ENOUGH!!!!..

hell even still they are saying.. ITS NOT ENOUGH!! all the while saying, they are fiscally irresponsible.

fug.

should have just turned the GST point over to the cites and left it at that.

They have the liberals on video saying that. Why not use it against them? And the ndp. And the bloc.

I have no idea. I guess maybe because it also shows that Harper can be bullied into making irresponsible decisions?

Or maybe they're saving it for later. Let the Liberals yap about the deficit for a few weeks and then put out an advertising blitz showing that they caused the deficit. Let the fish swallow the hook.

Ummm.......Refuelling tankers are positioned outside the range of enemy fights or protected by friendly fighters

sure they have some counter measures but they are not nearly as protected as an air craft carrier group and they cant really offer anything to the fight themselves.

How many in flight tankers have been shot down in recent conflicts?

I would bet the same number of aircraft carriers and group that have been obliterated

Since the highest amount of fuel burn is needed for takeoff, refuelling tankers generally don't need to be located that far from the originating airbase.

Of course there are exceptions of course. In the Falklands wr, the Brits sent Vulcan bombers to bomb the islands. In that instance, their refuelling tankers needed refuelling tankers! But with the exception of the bombers, none of the aircraft were in range of Argentinian defenses.

The Brits are selling one of their carriers.

But it's a v/stol carrier, so it's either outdated Harriers or the v/stol version of the f-35 which is much more expensive than the models Canada is slated to buy

I am betting when the USA goes broke in spring 2013 they will start selling off assets to. We could get it for a song. Hell with their messed up priorities we could probably trade Celien Dion for one.

The only country that we need to worry about invading us is the U.S.A.! I see in their history books that they claim they won the War of 1812.
Some dumb Canadian tried to explain to them, the US got mad and now want to send in troops to finish the job.
This may be good news, because they would take Harper to Guantanimo Bay .
