Afganistan

I was just talking to my friend and he says that 3 PPCLI is leaving 20-22 December. He says that its in the news out west but here in the east I haven't heard anything.

On CNN a little while ago PM Blair was saying that they want to have a peacekeeping force on the ground by 22 Dec 01. In the list of nations was Canada. For everything I've heard 3VP is supposed to be shipping out troops for 22 Dec. Has anyone one else heard whether or not we're going to be sending anyone?

Yeah I've heard they're going. Our Pl WO told us "Don't call 3PPCLI to see if they'll take you. " Apparently they've been getting calls from res guys all over the country asking to go. Rumint also suggests they've made up the numbers from 1 PPCLI, so CRIC will have to expand a lot.

I would look at the following and see if things add up.

1. 3PPCLI going to Afghanistan with only 3 INF COY's 1 of which is from 2 PPCLI plus part of another. WHy would they send a force with 25% of the Line COY's missing?

2. 1PPCLI with CRIC starts workup for Bosnia in June for Roto 11

3. G7 Confernce in Kanaskis (Calgary) in July requiring 1,000+ troops

4. 2 PPCLI slated for ROTO 12 with 1/2 their guys gone to Afghanistan.

5. Who's going to be left to do training in Wainwright and Chilliwack. I here they are ramping up Chilliwack for QL2/3 training. Wainwright just for Leadership courses this year!!

Better check if LFWA has enough people do all of this!!!!

I get the distinct feeling that the "Leadership" is somewhat disconnected with reality. Does anyone else see the parallels between the CF and the Marcos's regime in the Phillipines? It all has a very third-world feeling about it.

I don't have a clue what you're talking about but I'll just smile and nod.

Is this the same TonyM or an imposter?

Hey Marauder,

Just noticed your avatar and the "SEMPER PARATUS" signature.

I left the E&K in 94. Any others haunting this board?

Is Sgt O'Connor still around? Or maybe's he's a WO by now?


Actually - just went to the web site. Looks like O'Connor in the Marine Corps Marathon pics wearing G322? Can't really tell, though.

Geez, you guys never heard about the Marcos's? C'mon it was in all the papers. Back in the 80's they were in power in the Phillipines, pretty much raped the economy for their own pleasure, misused their power, destroyed the military, misinformed the public, and were generally unconcered with the population........
.....kinda like the Liberals (well exept for the 3000 pairs of shoes the guy's wife had) and I doubt it'll result in a coup.

And I thought you wuz all edu-macated an' stuff.

Imposter? Anyone who wants to be me can have the job!

Speaking of BB admin shit: How come I'm back to being a "junior member" and don't have one of those fancy picture-thingys?

I got my avawhatever off the Infantry School website then resized it in LView. You can't load your own unless you have 300 posts I think. Talk to one of the admin fools about not being a "JR".

I wonder if this will end up like the Church of Scientology. The more posts you have the more "priviledges" you get, more "knowledge" you get etc. etc.
I better be one postin muldune if I'm gonna ever get my avitar man!!!!!

Hello sir. Good to hear from you.

As for SGT O'Conner, he's still kicking around with us line animals, but I think he's in a staff job of some sort or another.

Too funny. I have a sneaking suspicion those guys are planning fire picket duty for you.
