Our friends over at Strike Hold had an interesting post on the conflict between strategies of concealment based on Cold War -- or just-past-Cold-War -- doctrine and today's combat environments.

But little did they know what sort of treasure they had in this photo they posted to illustrate the argument (Canadian troops wearing desert camo hiding in deep green foliage)...
