Then don't, there is no agreement other than a partnership in NATO in which our military is involved in, that says we have to mutually protect one
another. If you feel this way, write your congressman etc. Of course I also have to say you are underestimating the Canadian military's history.
Yes I said history, I know we are weak in that sector these days but that was not always the case, since World War 2 we have beenin decline because of
our increasing socialist style of government, but you can't just blatantly white wash our entire history saying we have never been any sort of threat
or force. We more than did our part in both World War's, nad before. And may I remind you that the only armed conflict that has occured between the
Americans and Canadians resulted in a victory for us, nad the burning of your original White house. Not that that would happen today, but for you to
say we have never had a real military just shows how ignorant you really are.
Back to the point though, I can't see a missile defense shield being viable, the imminent threat is from a dirty bomb or short range missile which
the defense shield would not help either. As for long range attacks, counterattack is deterrent enough, if you can bomb Pyongyanf thirty ties over
what they can bomb you, and they KNOW this, do you think they will try their luck?
You think they are insane, because you are told they are. Kim IL is not insane, he is quite shrewd actually, he thinks that having these weapons
gives him more bargaining power, and the Chinese seem to agree with him as they have said no to the US to intervene, and pressure North Korea. I
personally think he is more using the weapon as a bargaining chip than as a real weapon to use. But that is only my opion kind of like yours saying
he doesn't care how many people will die. If he didn't he would have already attacked SOuth Korea, he outnumbers the army 4-1 in equipment and man
power, even with the 30,000 US troops stationed there.
Finally as to your suggestion that we don't have balls, we merely soend our money differently, and we see diplomacy as the means to an end, not bombs
and weaponry. Like I said before, just because you can spend trillions on a stupid idea, doesn't mean you should. Also this defense shield has not
proved it will save anyone. If there is any kind of conspiracy nut out there they shoudl look into where all this money is GOING? Can you honestly
tell me it is this hard to create a system that can track and destroy incoming missiles? 20+ years and how many trillions? Just seems a little shady
