Why Canada misfired on ballistic missile defence Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Globe and Mail 
“Most military advisers find it a very odd stance that Canadian politicians have taken, that we don’t get on board with ballistic missile defence [BMD],” asserted retired chief of defence staff Tom Lawson in a recent interview. But the Canadian decision to remain outside the U.S. BMD system — a position that has transcended four successive governments — is odd only if you think of BMD in a military, national security and foreign policy context.  READ MORE

RCAFA Wing 424 commemorates Battle of Britain in Cornwall Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Cornwall Standard-Freeholder
Members of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) recently stood at attention in full dress uniform, despite the sweltering heat, to honour the pilots who fought and died during the Battle of Britain. The Battle of Britain wasn’t so much a battle as it was a three-month onslaught, where British and Canadian pilots fought off an aerial invasion by the German air force, the “Luftwaffe,” beginning in the summer of 1940. The Royal Canadian Air Force Association Wing 424 has held an annual ceremony to honour the pilots who died trying to keep the Luftwaffe from crossing the English Channel 77 years ago.  READ MORE

The Vancouver Sun
As the showdown between Bombardier and Boeing threatens to scuttle any deal for Canada’s purchase of Super Hornet jets, the Canadian military expects to finalize by next year the details on how it will upgrade its existing fleet of fighters. The modernization plan for the CF-18s will become even more critical as the Liberal government now tries to figure out its next steps.  READ MORE

NORAD, Lt.-Gen. St-Amand appear at odds with Mattis, NATO Treaty Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Ottawa Citizen 
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has somewhat suggested he might be open to rethinking Canadian involvement in the U.S. ballistic missile defence system. Although he hasn’t at this point reversed the decision of previous Canadian governments not to become involved in the U.S. ground-based missile defence system, news media outlets point out he opened the door, albeit a little, when he acknowledged his government will look at how to deal the situation with North Korea’s missiles.  READ MORE

The hitch in Ukraine’s peacekeeping bid: Where and how to keep the peace Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

CBC NEws 
A United Nations peacekeeping force populated with Canadians may, in the estimation of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, be the “shortest way” to end fighting in his troubled land, but his determination to exclude Russia could make for a long, uncertain road. Contributing to a UN-led intervention in Ukraine’s troubled, breakaway eastern districts would, on the surface, be appealing to the Liberal government.  READ MORE

A body found in a Second World War plane that crashed in India could be a Peterborough man who went missing in 1944. The late Clare Pymer McWilliams was a wireless operator and air gunner in the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).

Lockheed Martin offers F-35 to Canada as ‘interim’ fighter jet Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

National Post 
Lockheed Martin has offered the Liberal government the F-35 as an “interim” fighter aircraft, a move sure to turn up the heat on rival U.S. aerospace firm Boeing still embroiled in a trade dispute with Canada. Last year, the Liberals announced a proposal to buy 18 interim fighter jets from Boeing to deal with a capability gap facing the Royal Canadian Air Force. But that multibillion dollar plan to acquire Super Hornet jets has been thrown into limbo after Boeing filed a trade complaint in the U.S. against Bombardier of Quebec.  READ MORE

Questions about fighter replacement loom large as Boeing benefits plan arrives Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

CBC News 
A proposal outlining the industrial benefits Boeing is prepared to deliver to Canadian companies in exchange for a sole-source interim fighter jet contract has landed on desks at Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada. The pitch is being made even though the Liberal government has suspended discussions with the U.S. aerospace giant over a separate trade complaint and is reviewing the military purchase, which Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan has claimed is urgent.  READ MORE

While Americans fight the Taliban, Putin is making headway in Afghanistan Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

The RAND Blog
When the Soviet Union withdrew its army from Afghanistan in 1989, its defeat seemed complete and irreversible. Most Afghans bitterly repudiated the attempt to impose communist rule by force. An Afghan communist officer who fought with the Russians told me that his side lost because they could not overcome their image as atheist infidels. Today, however, Russia is seeking to remake its image by exploiting Afghan disappointment with the dismal results of the post-9/11 intervention by the U.S. and its allies.  READ MORE

Stealth necessary but not sufficient: Add EW, intel, tactics Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Breaking Defense 
Stealth was sold as something close to magic when it first appeared. And, as usually happens when extraordinary claims are made, the blowback was intense. Skeptics pointed to its vulnerability to large-scale, land-based radars, to the fact it wasn’t invisible to the naked eye, to the costs and difficulties of maintaining the expensive coatings, and the staggering overall cost of some of the aircraft (see B-2).  READ MORE
