Political Correctness run amok

South Africa just received their first Type 209 submarine. Bully for them. At least they're not British.

Here's the bad part:

"The submarine, packed with advanced equipment, is a Type 209, of which 63 are currently in service with various navies around the world. It requires a crew of 30 and South Africa aims to have a racial balance on board reflecting that within its society."

See that? They want to crew a submarine according to a racial balance within society. That's daft. I can understand where they're coming from here, but a submarine is NOT the place to play social engineer. Try the President's honour guard for that. Or maybe his security contingent.

Excellent point. Why stop there? PC would seem to require women, too, but in SA history that may not be at issue.

This comment is both off topic and politically incorrect.

Why does South Africa need submarines? The cities are in ruins. The farms lie fallow. The stock are all butchered and eaten. Are any of the factories still operational? I do not know.

They have two deadly enemies, themselves and AIDS. Submarines will not protect them from either. So definitely, these subs should have culturally diverse crews.

Hmmm, a "racially correct and balanced crew" seems a bit political, doesn't it? I wonder if they will paint the hull colors accordingly? ...sorry "colours" (forgot this IS a Canadian Blog!)

...snicker!

My name is Tony McNally I am a Falklands War veteran, who has PTSD. Over the years I have seen many of my fellow soldiers take their own lives due to their PTSD. More suicides than were KIA in the War. I have found that writing poetry has helped ,me in a big way and I would advise others to try and write things down. I have decided to put a book of poetry together to help raise funds for a UK mental health charity TALKING2MINDS http://www.talking2minds.co.uk/ if you would like to help spread the word or contribute or know of any other Canadian veterans or serving soldiers or families that might like their work published please let me know. it’s a for charity and you can keep your copyright. I want our Canadian brothers onboard to make this a truly International collaboration. Please send any contributions via email to remybenoit@gmail.com

In 2001 I drove down into what appeared to be a base underneath Oak Hammock Marsh Manitoba Canada (protected wildlife sanctuary), I completely forgot the experience until reading a report on underground Nazi bases at the beginning of 2013 (The Omega Files), I then used Google Earth and more recently Google Earth Pro to view Oak Hammock Marsh and the surrounding areas, I found several irregularities: A saucer with adaptive camo and what appears to be its landing area nearby that is marked with two swastikas and protected by 2 anti-aircraft weapons, a wormhole in a backyard neighboring Oak Hammock Marsh and a large white/silver tank 100 feet North of that wormhole. These images are somewhat blurry as they are taken from space using technology that is available to the public for free, if you look closely though there are some things that should not be in a protected wildlife sanctuary in Canada. Since remembering driving down into what appeared to be a base and finding these irregularities using Google Earth I have not stopped making this known, in my opinion anything less would be committing treason against Canada. These images and the links below are posted on my Facebook wall/account which is open to the public. In the photo albums labeled Oak Hammock Marsh I have included images from previous satellite imaging of these areas as well as the most recent (Google Earth Pro) so it is possible to see what is normally in those areas.
