You know, the question is actually insulting. Maybe the question should be, "Will Canada ever provoke the U.S. to aggression?", or even, "Will Canada ever invade the U.S.?"

Such assumptions, I keep seeing by posters on this board.

This is off topic, but if you live in Saskatchewan or Alberta, the Queen, yes THE QUEEN, is coming to visit. haha.

The united states doesnt have to invade canada, all it has to do is guilt trip them to death, get them to agree on policies that will work in favour of the u.s. etc.

President Bush has more control over canada than paul martin.

Paul martin couldnt even make up his mind on missle defense.
President bush offered more help with BSE than martin.


If the united states takes over canada, good luck dealing with the pesky french.

Note to possible americans wanting to take over: Dont turn right on a red light in montreal.

Sorry, I didn't mean to make it sound insulting. I am just trying to look at it from a logic and interest point of view.

But let's be honest, the U.S. has a foreign policy, and often that foreign policy inludes influencing or interfering with the sovereinty of other nations. They are not the only one of course. Britain, France, Russia, China, India, and even Canada has similar policies - but when you consider a country's ability to project influence, the U.S. stands alone. I also believe that there is a lot of good to come out of that - and some challenges.

It's not always about aggression either. The whole idea of nation state politics is to put your country at a better position. Sometimes that is from a defense point of view, like if another country is acting aggressively, but many times it is simply about economics or cultural influence. This has been true throughout history, and in powerful countries anywhere in the globe.

Canada just recently lost the US Amassador to Canada - Succi. Seems he mentioned the word Canada had 'given up its Souvernty' cause of their refusal to adhock ballistic air defense.

Now, the most powerful nation on earth says through its selected people Canada is basically nothing more than a whim to US needs.

Canada, due to that kind of crap will soon become a EU nation and use EU Dollars and Britain will soon follow suite. The US nonsense Dollar will quickly fade bringing mighty US into economic submission.

And then the US will have to consider invading a friendly country such as Canada for its currency (EuroDollars) - sorry no Oil there. But Mr Bush and military-might is really not a match against the full EU. Amen.

The only way we would invade them is if the republicans passed a law banning Canadians from voting. I mean, come on, Canada is full of liberals and the republicans must know if they vote, they are going to vote liberal, causing the republicans to lose the whitehouse/senate/house.

Anyways, I can see someone yelling to Bush at a rally "Canada has oil!" and the next day we would be invading them because they have WMDs, uh, they don't have democracy, uh, SHUT UP AND WATCH REPUBLICAN PROPAGANDA/FOX NEWS!

EVER?

I will never say never on something like this, however it would take an extreme situation.

As for all of you Canadians thinking you could guarilla your way to victory...Don't make me laugh. Just like Iraq, you guys would maybe be able to take a few hundred a year. Do you really think that will force us out?


The simple truth is no one would help you out - at least with their military. Why would Russia or China risk nuclear war over you? And the UK? Please - they may WANT to do something about it (or may not, as this is a hypothetical situation) but they don't have the military to do it and plus, again, they won't risk nuclear war with us.

The bottom line is, YES, it could happen - but you guys have a better chance of becoming the worlds next great super power before that happens.

Yah. Sure.

But their medical will have been paid and their ties to/coming with the EU will then be in ONLY proximity to red/white&Blue.

Well. We do have oil. Lots of it!


Maybe six months from now, the Bush Admin will come to the conclusion that we should be 'liberated' from the evil and despotic Paul Martin dictatorship!

While we are abundant in natural resources you would probably like to own, and do have some darn tasty beers, in the end, you are probably correct.


First off, Canadian beer is awful. Secondly, we can use our considerable amounts of money to take away your natural resources.

Well, why not lob a few tactical nukes on Toronto for starters. I dont think canada has the military might to stand against the U.S. for long. not with our military and militia forces.


The thing is, we have an unlimited supply of timbits to pummel you with.


Nevermind the front lines of polar bears, beavers and caribou.

But seriuosly, if the US ever decided to break the bond between their number one trading parnter, they would take over in a matter of days. I dont see Canada putting up much of a fight. Its after the takeover the states have to worry about. Think of all the countries that would get upset.

This whole senario is pretty far fetched though.

On a more serious note, is not reason to invade Canada, they have never been a threat, and why to invade them when US investment companies has been doing that already trough trade.

Not to mention NAFTA in which Mulroney (Conservative PM of the day) sold...I mean, gave Canada's resources away to the U.S.

Besides, i like Canadians. A guy I work with was once one. He had a tattoo on his left arm that said, "Canada" which is how I came to know he was born there. A few years ago he became a US citizen and for the longest time I tried to talk him into getting an additional tattoo right under his tattoo that said Canada. I wanted him to add the word "Sucks" He wouldn't do it.

Love and light and good neighborly relations my friends,

Wupy


I doubt he gave up his Canadian citizenship in order to acquire US citizenship. You can have both if you are a permanent resident in either.

Seriously i highly doubt the US would invade canada. we are not that damn agressive! we get hit by a terrorist attack and recipicate like anyone would, and now were the bad guys on the block.
We have been friends with canada for awhile and i think were even thinking of including them in our missile defense program. BTW mexico is far more of a threat than canada.


That's just ignorant. French Canada (not just in Quebec) adds diversity to a rich history. Its part of what makes us so different from the US - French culture is alive and well all over the land. And I for one am grateful of it.

what would the US gain from invading Canada ? we get along pretty well, if we needed something they had, I expect we'd purchase it at a decent fair price. I don't think Canada is spoiling for a fight, so I don't think they would provoke us by bombing detroit or anything like that.

peace !

Also, Canada doesn't bring much economic benefit.


Are you kidding me? If you don't know what you're talking about, better to keep quiet than sound stupid. Canada has some of the richest resources in the world: oil, natural gas, water just for starters.

Most of which has been given away to our neighbours thru NAFTA.

Glad you feel that way. That means there is more beer for me.

And yes, you can use your considerable amounts of money to take away our resources. It's called paying for them, same as you do now.

Actually the "Axis of Evil" with Enron's "E" is from a T-shirt I saw online. I meant to buy one but now it's been discontinued.
I just pasted in a picture of Ken Lay and drew a cross hairs on him.
I wish that was my own wit, but I'm afraid not.

Would that Canada would go to the Euro. Certain American corporations would probably be GIDDY at the idea. Correct me if I'm wrong because I'm no economist, but if the dollar slips and Canada goes to the Euro this is going to mean several important things for American business men.
1. More exports to Canada.
2. America gets a bigger share of the trans-border transport market (who wants to pay a Canadian truck driver in Euros when you can pay an American in dollars?
3. Increased buying power for Canada's sometimes socialist government, meaning they'll buy more American drugs and such.
4. More tourism/visitation from up North.
5. Mexican illegals may eventually just keep on heading North and leave us the hell alone.

The bottom line is that having a well-to-do neighbor with a penchant for socialist spending is beneficial to organized crime, dirty government, and some forms of business- not so good for the average joe though. Look at Mexico. So far NAFTA has done nothing but "have inappropriate sexual relations" with the American working man, especially near the Mexican border. This could be the coup that brings things around to what NWO types in America wanted.

Not only that, but Canada going on to the Euro could be the way that America finally compromises Canadian sovereignty and even gains a foothold in the EU.
Fifty years from now Canada is significantly wealthier, they get a lot out of their relationship with America, and their disgusted with what they perceive as a rural minority in America using the flawed electoral process to maintain conservatism. So they'll want to annex us- or perhaps even just part of us if the schism in America were to grow that wide. All of sudden, here are a bunch of American votes (subject to American puppet masters) entering the domestic politics of Canada. Now there are two ways to look at it- either American liberals have ascended to their place in the EU's New World Order or American conservatives have infiltrated and compromised said same.

Yeah, I know, it's out there.
