And really, do you think us Canadians are stupid? We could probably effectively decapitate the US all by ourselves.
This statement pretty much answers itself. Any nation that has ever tried attacking the US has done it in a very cowardly and stupid manner and then
been utterly defeated.
Cowardly? The US invaded Canada and we countered by invading Washington. The first White House burned so hot that our general ordered our soldiers
to put out the fires at our camp, so they could warm themselves by the fires of liberation.
Where do you think Canada got all of it's military equipment anyways? If anything you should be thanking the US for the fact that you even
have anything resembling a military.
Oh how ignorant that statement is.
Canada was the fourth largest industrial power after WWII. We even had the largest navy.
Then in the 1950s our government signed an interoperability pact between the US and Canadian military complex (a "free-trade" agreement). This was
the American attempt to destroy our own national military industry, and it worked.
But you can rest assured that we do have our own designs, because American weapons barely fit our requirements so we are experts in improvisation.
I like the Canadian government because it appears to be very liberal and seems like it would be a nice place to live, but the fact remains
proven by your own post nonetheless, that when it comes to war Canadians aren't the brightest apples in the bunch.
Our government is far from liberal. It is run by neo-conservative puppets bought out by the American elite, because they still believe in that
garbage about manifest destiny and they refuse to acknowledge that Canada is a sovereign nation (because Americans tend to believe in only one
culture, their own).
And, just for your information since you are so uninformed, our military is much more trained and effective than your's. The only thing you have on
my military is numbers and weapons designed for massacre. We believe in having a military for peacekeeping and national defense, but the Americans
have done nothing but push our military brass into creating a warmongering military just like yours, so sorry that we are not as effective at starting
wars and mass-murdering hundreds of thousands of people like your's.
The aegis defenses systems make a USCG almost impervious to any missile attack, in order to successfully make a hit on any given ship in the
group a nation would literally have to use more missiles than their equivalent number of ships could physically carry.
Keep believing whatever you want. You missile technology, especially missile-interception technology, seriously lags behind a lot of the world's
missile tech. And you think it's missile vs missile? A real conflict involves so much more. How will your precious AEGIS ships perform when their
high-tech computers are shut down by a simple virus?
The US Navy recently test fired a 100 mile magnetic railgun version of their ships main guns, this will bypass any missile defense systems and
it is speculated they will be able to reach 200 miles in the near future, there are not many countries that even have missiles that can reach this
range. The metal slug it fires is not explosive and can be carried in large quantities, but travels at extremely high velocities and causes massive
I really don't care about your excessively expensive weapons. My military isn't designed for a huge war, it is effective for operation-specific
duties. Why would we take on an armada of American ships when we can take out American Naval command?
It was your exact attitude of thinking you have such an invincible army that lead Canadians to victory against 90% of all conflicts against Americans
in the centuries of wars between us. Americans came with large armies, large armadas of ships. What did we have? Farmers, patriots and natives, and
we decimated American advances because we hid in the bush and attacked priority targets and cut off logistic routes. We will do the same again.
The best bet against a USCG (Carrier Group) would be a submarine attack, and even then you have to be in exactly the right place at the right
time or bet on the commander of the carrier group to make some kind of mistake or move in the wrong way.
There's so many ways to take out a carrier that it will be very interesting to watch in video format the next time (if ever) the US fights an enemy
that is actually comparable, like Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, France, Germany, UK, Canada, Israel, Japan, etc.
The F-22 is capable of shooting down 14 of any plane in the world at long range that would pose any sort of competition for it, and it still
packs 4 more close range missiles. The only real threat to an F-22, given that it was already detected by some other advanced sensor system, is an
F-14 packing phoenix missiles.
Says what, American computer simulation programs? The F-22 is an aircraft, it can be shot down. Modern Russian SAMs like the Triumf can already
target and down F-22s because that is what they are designed to do. And it's not like any fighter cannot engage an F-22 in a dogfight, because they
We can sit here and argue specifics all day long, the cold hard facts dictate that the US military is the most powerful in the world.
If anyone here is even somewhat knowledgeable of modern military technologies and tactics of the US and any others that could pose any kind of
competition, I urge you to name a way (a realistic one, not a pipe dream) in which to exploit something about the US to take us over. You can't come
up with anything that makes any sort of real sense because more than likely it doesn't exist. You people need to know a little bit about what your
are talking about before you post this garbage.
Keep smoking that propaganda. The only fact here is that the US claims it is invincible because of its military track record, but any idiot who can
interpret that record can put 2 and 2 together and see that for such an advanced and "superior" military as what the US has, it has only fought
insurgents and ragtag armies. It hasn't engaged a real enemy yet since they know they will inflict much heavier casualties, which will not be savvy
to the American media or public.
