The CAF trains Ukrainians troops in cold weather survival and warfare, same with the Lebanese troops. What makes training Chinese troops so nefarious and sinister?

Lebanon and Ukraine don't have the capability or plan to invade anyone.
China's been expanding into neighboring countries in the south pacific - defying borders in place since wwii.
They've undertaken soft coups in the US.

My thought is that anything China does in the Arctic won't be done under their own flag.

Maybe these Chinese troops will be on the new Chinese icebreakers. Regardless of the fact China does not share a border with the arctic ocean...

And now it appears the Liberals were upset that our military cancelled these training exercises.

Liberals dismayed that military exercises with China were cancelled, secret documents reveal

One of the reasons was that the Americans were rightly concerned about an “undesired knowledge transfer” from Canada to China. And the Liberals never gave that a moment's thought? :200:

I'll bet Justin was on the phone apologizing to the Chinese. Who's side is he on?

Ya....Don't worry about a arctic invasion plan .Even if China (or anyone) had enough amphibious landing craft( they don't), they are not going to try a arctic beach landing to try to invade North America. I don't care if they get a million boots on the ground or ice... It's not practical even for Russia- a military experienced in arctic warfare. Anyone trying it would have their bleeps handed to them by the land/ environment.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

If they went for it, and starting training is telling me they are open to exploring the area with military personnel, it's naive to think it will fail due to the enviroment. If they chose to strike, it will be so well planned that nobody could defend against the initial attack. Especially if we have trained them in what we know but they haven't trained us...

Also can be used in 'enhanced radiation' mode or as a neutron bomb if you don't like the first PC term....Airburst(no fallout) over troops/armour and deliverable by most NATO combat multi role aircraft. The advancing enemy troops would freeze in a pool of their own vomit. If the attack is in the summer...ummm what road goes through the northern areas and muskeg?
They would have to do a icbm strike on military bases(minus key airfields and ports as they would be used by a invading enemy) and possibly a emp strike over the continent first before thinking of landing troops.
