Yes, and that multi trillion dollar advantage is in RELATIVE dollars. Seriously, the US DoD budget has been greater then the next 10-50 countries
behind it COMBINED for over half a CENTURY.
(2) Again, you attack Canada, you lose your Best and really only Friend. Even China, Russia and India would save us if you tried something very
illogical. WE would have to share our resources with them but it would be a smaller price to pay.
Our best and only friend? Well, I am sorry, but if we NEED water for our people, and our 'friend' is unwilling to share, they are not such a
'friend' now are they?
And as I said, Russia, China, and everyone else would sit by with their tails between their legs. What makes you think Russia and China want to take a
thousand nukes to the chin over Canada? Even if they were willing, it wouldn't matter - they don't have the logistics, nor the military power if
they did, to bring what would need to be an army of at LEAST 30 million soldiers to the other side of the world.
And lets assume they did have all of that... They would STILL have to go through the US Navy, which by it's self would defeat Russia, China, India,
and any other power that you think might try and come to your aid.
But again, this will never happen, so sleep well. I won't be stealing any of your water.
And BTW, I love hockey as well. My Flyers shall hoist the Cup again with the help of Forsberg!
