Why Canada Spent $597,000 On A ‘Stealth Snowmobile’

 

(Durham University)

 

” The Canadian Press reports that the quiet, hybrid-electric snowmobile was commissioned in 2011 as part of Canada’s long-term military buildup in the Arctic, where melting ice is opening access to a part of the world with lots of natural resources and sketchy territorial claims. A prototype was reportedly designed to help conduct “winter operations” on a variety of terrains and to operate more quietly than other models on the market.

Arctic claims, as it turns out, are highly contested and terribly passive-aggressive, even more than 60 years after Canada resettled Inuit families in Resolute Bay to assert its sovereignty there. International treaties have, for the most part, neatly divided up the lands around the Arctic: No one owns the North Pole, but Russia, Canada, the United States, Denmark/Greenland and Norway have extended their borders northward to claim the territories around it.”

#3. The 100 Nuclear Missiles Left in Cuba … AFTER the Cuban Missile Crisis

 

” What you didn’t know was that we didn’t actually intercept all those missiles. After the Cuban missile crisis was officially “over,” Russia still had 100 nuclear missiles in Cuba. Since the U.S. didn’t know about them, and therefore hadn’t technically included those hundred in the deal, the USSR decided that they could legally “give” them to Cuba. But when the Russian higher-ups visited Cuba to figure out the details, they quickly realized that Castro was balls-out-of-the-underwear crazy. During those first negotiations, Cuba had been left out completely. And, since they suffer from the nation equivalent of Short Man Syndrome, they were furious at the slight.

The Russians decided that if the missiles were left in Cuba, it would almost definitely lead to World War III. So they did what politicians do best: lie ridiculously. They told Castro that there was an unpublished Russian law that made it illegal to give missiles to Cuba permanently — our legal department says it’s a variant of the “never promise crazy a baby” statute — and the Cuban missile crisis was averted.”
