This is way off topic so I apologize. As for the OT, I think the US should be upset and action should be taken as that's a big mishap in my opinion.
I know guys who have been on the Mirror Image program, they said it was a blast. Very immersive, very instructive and whole lot of fun. The drive-by shootings particularly.
Military troops trained by a bunch of mercs?
What the issue is that even though the CF and police units train there. ITAR still applies, which appears that it was not followed in this case.
Yes lets not give our troops and police proper training. What a bunch of morons the NDP are.Since 2008, the Harper government has had an untendered contract with the firm, though the company has been paid millions since 2006 to provide training for specialized Canadian troops and select police officers.
Now, in light of these newest revelations, the NDP is calling for an investigation into the government’s connection with the firm.
NDP defence critic and MP Jack Harris said his party has opposed the training for some time.
Ah so PMCs run the military.
Oh but Blackwater got disbanded so no more training with the mercs with itchy trigger fingers.
Pretty much that."Our government secured the appropriate training for our men and women in uniform to ensure they had the skills required to survive a very difficult military mission in Afghanistan."
