The new teacher of Anti West propaganda...you must have missed the memo.


You can actually say that to yourself just reverse it. Been that way long time.

Canada is hurting from being a US doggy

Canada benefits greatly from being a neighbor to the USA. With the American military machine sitting on it's southern border, no one is going to try to invade Canada. And Canada can spend less $$$ on it's national defense because it leans on our country to spend our $$ for defense. So it can spend more of it's money on other programs.

Of course, there will be no mention of the wealth of natural resources that the US gains from Canada.

No... it's all about the US Military.

Canada DOES financially benefit greatly from having the US on it's Southern border.
The OP said Canada is hurting because of the USA.
I showed one aspect where it is being greatly helped.

That's the point I was trying to make... you were showing only one aspect of the Canada/US relationship and it sounded a lot like a put-down.

As far as the Canadian military is concerned, we are part of what is tentatively known as the 'Commonwealth'. That includes Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain.

It's not only the USA we need to count on, eh?

Don't forget NATO.

I really do not understand your stance with this. The US also hurts from the fall in oil prices, Canada sells its tar sands oil to US refineries. Also Canada has a huge Ukrainian immigrant population so it is no surprise that Canada would stand with Ukraine. Also the NATO thing, if the US desperately wanted Ukraine in NATO they would make it happen, which they have not.

For you to claim oil price going down at the time US organized sanctions against Russia as nothing to do with Russia, is funny.

.


What I find funny is you seem to be failing to recognize that it is not just the US behind sanctions, the whole EU have placed them as well.

We all know who the real leader in NATO is.

USA

US also is the biggest financial contributor to NATO.

How did you get that as a put down? Nope.
The OP post was a negative.
I balanced it and showed a positive.
And what I said was true.
Canada greatly benefits financially from America being on it's southern border.
Our spending $$ on military means Canada doesn't have to spend it on theirs.
That frees up their $$ to pay for other things.
And I didn't say it was only the USA that Canada counts on.
I said it was a benefit having the USA on their border.
Which it is.
Why don't you want to acknowledge that?

Because history.

America once invaded Canada and had designs of conquest (which failed).
America did not spring immediately to our aid in either WWI or WWII, but took years before getting involved.

The American military industrial complex is a juggernaut, but that sword is double edged. It protects, but cannot exist without war, so it finds it in places it considers a threat.

Considers a threat...

Perhaps one day Canada will be seen as a threat? All those socialist ideals and a crumbling religiosity?

War Plan Red

Bottom line: Personally speaking, I don't have any trust in America's 'military might' or her politicians.
