Why would he refuse?  We all know the Combat Engineers are "fully
combat troops" and if he was superior in rank, the career subaltern
be both legally and morally obligated to surrender authority...  :)

The key here is simulator training.  There aren't any good Carl G.
simulators.  The Javelin has very advanced simulators.	Sure, firing a
simulator won't be exactly the same as the real thing, but you can get a
lot of good training in, without the expense...

We'd declare war over that Cable pollution.  Damnyanks!  Actually, a
war with the US would probably be good for Canada.  We could settle the
Quebec seperatist issue once and for all, and then have our economy
up like Japan and Germany...  I don't know about the culture thing

Breathing constitutes a challenge to some of them, if you aren't of the
correct persuasion politically...  like RABID
