If this logic was true, then how could anyone get a job in that field? They would have to work at the job to first get experience.
And why do professors teach? From my experience, because most of them are too old to do anything more active. And even then, most of them were smart
enough to make their own choices about not doing things that they didn't agree with.
I learned from a very young age that most of my teachers and Professors....Hated the fact that they were teaching rather than DOING. This
unfortunately brings a bitterness to the STUDENT and finding a Teacher that does both...that is TEACH and DO WORK in their field of expertise...is the
Teacher or Professor you should PAY ATTENTION TO! This person actually knows what is going on and you can tell as they will not hang in the same
circles as other acadamia...as they have WORK TO DO!
I don't know why you are lecturing me on this. I'm not particularily stupid or inexperienced. Do you think that I got into university after living
some boring upper-middle class life in the suburbs, earning squeaky clean marks in high school? University was the last place that I expected to end
up in considering what I was trying to do with my life.
It is not your Professors fault that they do not know how deep the Rabbit Hole Runs between the two countries...it is just that they were never
good enough to be placed on the SPLUNKING TEAM! LOL!
I think that you are severely mistaken. I'm not American, I don't live in the US. We have an entirely different culture here, and our academic
system is far different. The same education that I am getting now is the universal standard across Canada, whereas any American attempting to get the
same level of degree would find themselves in a six-level system, meaning that you only get the highest level if you have the money to pay for it.
Somebody like me would not be earning the same education in the US.
And quite frankly, it doesn't even matter what the national systems are because the education that I am getting is clearly not the standard, and we
cover the reality of the situation. I'm not going to bother getting into details about my own education, but I can tell that I definitely scored
with what I stumbled into.
And really, I shouldn't even have to explain myself. The fact that I am able to hold up such arguments through realist arguments, whereas most
people are forced to fall back on ideology or fantasy, shows that I am already capable at what I am doing, just as I was trained and raised to be.
It's not as if I suddenly jumped on the strategically-minded path when I started going to university- I've been on it my whole life.
And quite frankly, I would be what you consider "working in the field" if my own military would have taken my application seriously. I busted ass
to apply for my military career, spent years preparing and studying and thinking, and then when it came down to it, all they saw was some worthless
punk who apparently fluked out on their testing and wasn't worth any more consideration. They didn't care about me because I didn't fit into their
pathetic universal standard system for recruitment (meaning that they wanted stupid recruits who could easily be mentally controlled and manipulated-
and its not like they would ever consider a common Canadian citizen like me to be an officer where I could maintain some degree of conscious thought
But enough about me.
I still don't agree with anything that you're saying. You have absolutely no proof for your claims, whereas I have seen a lot of records about
US-Canadian military ties. We do not have such American weaponry here. We have not torn down all of the DEW network that was established during the
Cold War- in fact, we've upgraded a lot of the sites specifically so we could compromise with American ambitions to place their weapons there
instead. Plus we said no to US ABM system because, of various reasons, it was barely effective.
Not only is there no official system as you have suggested, but the ability to maintain it and keep it secret from political rivals of the current
American bedfellow Harper regime would be immense to the point where if you already know it, then it would have already been a major scandal here.
Canada is not enemies, nor is it a major rival of Russia, in modern times. We have no intention of signaling our military response to them in such a
way. Our formation of arctic brigades is enough to maintain sovereignty over our northern islands for now.
