First - Bad Cat Robot sends this, claiming it to be the new Canadian Aircraft Carrier in final prep before transiting the Straits of Juan de Fuca:

The TWX was broken. Here's the text that finally came with the photo...

Canada, the leading non-violent 3rd world dictatorship, may soon lose its coveted status in the UN as one of the ‘nice countries’ who cowed to the terrorists in recent years. Canada is apparently getting serious about it’s expanding role in defense of the Great Lakes, and may even venture into some rivers, as long as the First Nations council allows them.

Unbeknownst to many outside the circle of enthusiasts of the Military Trivial Pursuit board game, the CDN Ministry of Silly Walks, er, Defense, has secretly purchased a new aircraft carrier, and christened her the HMCS Jean Crétien, in honor of the former Prime Minister. The funds for this purchase were apparently made available through something known as the ‘Sponsorship Deal’.

The following surveillance photo was shot last week in B.C. waters, showing the HMCS Jean Crétien carrying Canada’s newest secret four-engined Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) maritime patrol aircraft.

Heh. May get some grief from the Brigaded Blogs! I'm *sure* I'm gonna get snarked by CAPT H, and bombarded from the North with links to *Silly US Military Ideas*... Bring it on!


Why do men's hearts beat quicker, go weak in the knees, get dry throats and think irrationally when a woman wears leather clothing?
