Embarrassing question: who is the enemy?
The most puzzling, neglected, but surely most critical aspect of the expanding debate on military procurement, whether of F35s or “close combat vehicles”, is neither cost nor efficacy. What is missing is a precise statement of the projected need for the sophisticated equipment and a definition of the circumstances within which the perceived need conceivably might arise.
Canada faces no menacing external military enemy, present or foreseeable, and in any event would be unable to repel an attack by a major power, which could wipe out in seconds the complex support facilities for the F35s as well as any vehicle concentrations. If one concedes that a military invasion is inconceivable, then expensive defence measures, including those designed for “close combat” (NP April 20) are almost totally redundant and a reckless waste of resources.
Canada would be far better served by “disarming” potential enemies through diplomacy, not antagonizing them through warmongering on behalf of duplicitous “allies” who kill and plunder in the hypocritical guise of “spreading democracy”. Meanwhile, the only real invaders Canada need fear are Third World migrants who could arrive in flotillas in overwhelming numbers when, as predicted, serious famines combine with rapid population growth, especially in Africa. The logical form of defence in this case would be naval – primarily a large and well-equipped Coast Guard.
The true enemy of Canada, most to be feared, is the enemy within. Subversion of our governments (leading to demographic and cultural destabilization, denationalization, corruption, censorship, thought control, persecution in the name of human rights and economic dispossession through removal of foreign investment and monopoly controls) has already cost us much of our sovereignty although the trappings of independence, as in America, remain. Against this internal enemy the best weapon is an informed and aroused public, sufficiently well-led and organized to dislodge permanently the existing pernicious, lobby-controlled Establishment and to conduct a housecleaning at all levels of society that will ensure our fate is thenceforth held firmly and permanently in traditional, loyal Canadian hands.

Subj: Fwd: The enemy within the gates
January 29, 2013
Your Jan/Feb issue was the most courageous and enlightening article to appear in any Canadian news medium since the Gouzenko case, and brought to public view the contempt in which Israel holds her misguided Canadian “ally” (well-justified in the case of our Prime Minister who contemptuously white-washed the murder of a true Canadian patriot and condones all other Israeli atrocities).
Now that you have broken the taboo, perhaps the time has come to question seriously the misguided tolerance of the Canadian public, including Veterans, of the subversion of the Federal Government, media and education system by the powerful Israeli Lobby and its collaborators, which now amounts to a veritable coup d’etat. I have raised the issue in various letters to Brad White, copied to you, and to your good self (sample attached), and would be glad to produce an article for “The Legion” if you agree that it would be a timely and useful warning.
I have the qualifications I believe to write an authoritative article, even a large book, on subversion, having had direct exposure to the problem both in the senior ranks of the Federal Government and in the private sector. I would be glad to discuss the idea with you. It is by far the most important issue facing the nation today, in my opinion, and of should be of vital concern to all Servicemen who offered their lives to preserve our traditions and sovereignty.
