Hi, Reading some of the horror stories about Bootcamp in the U.S.A versus what veterans now call the Canadian "pink" Army training, I wonder which one is more effective in creating top-notch soldiers ready for urban warfare. Canada now has very strict policies regarding things such as hazing, PT, harassment and a bunch of other things. Basically, Army training has been "pussied-up" a lot. Instructors are no longer allowed to single out fuck-ups, give push-ups to a small group of individuals, instructors need to provide adequate food and water at all times, and various other things. Of course, it still happens but only in extreme cases. How does this compare to current standards for the USMC and US Army training? Is there still Full Metal Jacket style training happening or has the US also jumped on the Human Rights bandwagon? "Basic Military Qualification", a 10-week long affair for our Reg force and 4-week long for our reservists is basically a breeze to pass through, because clerks and other soft-jobs need to qualify in order to have a job. The 2nd stage, called "Soldier Qualification" also needs to be completed by ALL Army staff, so this is often pussied-up as well. The MOC course for Infantry has even become somewhat of a breeze, with the field portion now lasting only a few days in some cases. In recent years, there has been a declining amount of sleep-deprivation training, and an increase in recruits lolly gagging around and having fun. How does this contrast with the U.S.?
