I'm certain that the US could effectively invade Canada.

It would be the subsequent nation building that would fail

Maybe a Mod can point that out for you,


You honestly don't know who intrepid is, do you?


I'll let you figure that 1 out on your own...

Relax dude. Oz is Canada south. Canada is Oz north. We are so similar that it's not funny. The only difference is that we reside beside a superpower.



Not quite; OZ has beautiful tropical beaches, not to mention the topless beaches.


Though some topless beaches would be awesome up there in chilly Canada...


Oh c'mon. You're just thinking of nipples.

Hmmm..... First of all, America can definitely invade Canada no problem ( I am Canadian by the way so hopefully no Canadians get mad :lol
they have a military budget of almost 700 billion yearly. Can they succeed in taking over the whole country? Not a chance in hell. Unless Canada went crazy and started starting beef with America for no reason; there is no way the other nations of the world would let the USA invade Canada. We are a British monarch, so basically the UK would be on our side, most likely all of Europe to. Russia would be on our side as well. So yeah they could invade our country, but the Canadian military are much stronger than anything America has experienced. JTF2 are elite soldiers, and are military (even though small) is tough. So could you rephrase your question? If you are asking if America can invade Canada, yes. If you are asking if they can take over the entire nation, not a chance.

Well good luck with that idea considering the might of the US military haven't figured that out correctly in,
Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan


...umm..well i guess practice makes perfect... then again, its all a matter of how one is to educated its citizen and judging on their eating habits i would be a tad cautious as not to arouse their hunger.

*see beaver tail as it was also pointed out to me*

It's about time we woke up to the canuck menace.!
up there in the forests -lurking for centuries-
just waiting for the right moment..eh?
what is hockey if not terrorist training.?
infiltrating our media with all chuckles for old uncle sam eh-
all the time with the- hey usa , look at all our clean water and arctic resources..
Thats right - i got you canucks all figured out..oot.
the only answer is a pre-emptyive strike.
nuke all their major cities..ah..lets see..toronto..
whats the other ones?..
the biggest problem will be friendly fire incidents -
we may shoot ourselves more than the enemy- for they
have craftily adapted our language and looks.
OH CANADA! my left maple cheek..

I'm surprised no one has brought up the previous two times the United States tried to wage war against Canadian forces:

Invasion of Canada (1775) Albeit, it was the Continental Army.

Then...

War of 1812- Invasions of Upper and Lower Canada

Both times ending in less than desirable results for the American forces, but maybe third time will be the charm?


Also, here's the plan for Canada's counterattack written in 1921 in response to an American invasion.
Defence Scheme No. 1

I doubt the military , well the ground forces would want to cross horn's with Canadians, i guess at first they might want or assume as much but given what the Canadians do with beavers....well i would rather chill out.



What the Canadians do with beavers, What do they do with their beavers?!





Although I hear in "Canada South", they shave their beavers. Not that I have any personal experience to back that up...

Whataya mean we wouldn't be able to tell you apart from our own people?

That's easy. Just line up 25 people at a time and make them say "about".

Anyone who says "a-boot" takes one for the team.

(Totally kidding here, I adore Canada, and think you guys are awesome!)

Here's a sure fire test to detect the evil Canadians among us:

How to spot Undocumented Canadians

Edit to add: Dang it, it ain't there anymore. Luckily I had the best part saved:



"Ask them to apologize to you. If the suspect claims he is 'so-ree' he is likely Canadian (though possibly just lobotomized), and you may require documentation."

"If the suspect has a mullet but no Kentucky accent, you may require documentation."

"The preferred Canadian ensemble includes plaid flannel, tight-fitting knit caps, pegged stonewashed jeans, and LA Gear high tops. Same with the men . .

"See if the suspect agrees with you that Alex Trebek is a brilliant and talented Canadian. First, no one but a Canadian cares or knows that Trebek is Canadian; and second, no one but a Canadian would find Trebek anything but insufferable . . ."

"Ask the suspect to repeat the famous Gary Coleman line from the 80s TV show, 'Different Strokes.' If the suspect says 'Whatchoo talkin' 'BOOT, Willis," you may require documentation."

"If the suspect is carrying an open container of maple syrup in his vehicle, you may require documentation."

"If you are at a grocery store and witness someone buy more Kraft Mac and Cheese then any single family could possibly consume, especially if in tandem with an equally untenable amount of ketchup, you may require documentation."

"If the suspect is Asian, he is most certainly from Toronto and you may require documentation."

"Ask the suspect which is better, SCTV or Saturday Night Live. If the suspect does not respond that 'it depends on which era of SNL you're talking about,' you may require documentation."

"If the suspect can name any NHL player besides Wayne Gretzky, or cares in the least about any hockey game except for the Miracle on Ice, you may require documentation."

"If, after you have proceeded through each step in this section of the manual, the suspect has not revealed himself to be Canadian but nonetheless answers your questions politely, without agitation or annoyance, and with effusive deference to your authority, or if he apologizes to YOU at the end (even without pronouncing his apology "so-ree"), then he is most assuredly Canadian and you may require documentation."

There's no need whatsoever for the U.S. to invade Canada.

Canada will be assimilated.




Oh, Gawd! Suddenly I made this about the NAU.


Canada is Cool! Yes, pun intended.

Seriously, though, if the U.S. government ever decided to do something as moronic as try to invade Canada, I guess I might eventually end up in a Gitmo, for being a nonuniformed combatant, or more likely, for providing aid and comfort to the "enemy". I've got special friends in Canada. Some live in Nova Scotia and some live near Calgary. No way would I sit idly by and watch these fine folks be put through the grinder without doing something to help them.

However, that one particular bastidge I met up with in Toronto, well........sorry bout his luck, if it ever came to such a scenario considered in the thread starter.



Just saying.........Canada rocks!........While others just roll.

Intrepid, why in the world would you pose such a question as this?
We were having so much fun on the other Canada thread, talking 'bout beer, and the queen, and eye contact.

I don't think people believe Canada is a weak country, smarty pants. I'm rather certain people think of Canada as a peaceful country. And that is something of which you can be proud.
