As a Canadian, I would think most of us feel this guy chose his name quite well and should receive the attention/replies he merits for starting such a thread...none.

canada can be over run in 2 hrs. it would take days to mount a machine gun on a ww2 jeep and drive it to the front from the museum, plus canada's army (ted and jerry) don't work on weekends. incase the canadians didn't get the email, america has taken over canada a long time ago. with all the mcdonalds, burger kings, pizza huts, walmarts and home depots, you can't tell the difference between a typical canadian city and an american one.

This thread has certainly had me chuckling.
Liz would never let 2 of her squabbling kids come to blows.

Bit if you ever did I wouldn't under estimate those crazy canucks; they are tough and resolute and have earned the eternal gratitude and respect of the British people.

Not forgetting Canada have two of the greatest heroes of all time, two men who would drive the American oppressors back from whence they came, and fart in their general direction, I am of course talking about.....Terrence and Phillip!

EDIT: Thats a bloody good point, OP have you been watching far too much of the South Park movie lately? Is that where you came up with this whacky thought???

Heck, we could deport the illegal aliens in the US and double your population.

What would the need for an actual invasion be?

Just destroy your culture and welfare system by a prolonged invasion of illegals.

Americans think they are the best because of what we are taught in school. Im a current high school student and I see it all the time in my history classes. Students are always so wide eyed when they figure out that the US has killed thousands of people indiscriminately in the past. They think that the US has never layed a hand on anybody without reason to do so. Talk about ignorance, and then we complain about corrupt individuals who become a threat to society. It all starts in the seemingly harmless facility we call school..

Not attempting to offend the original poster. Could the US invade Canada? Yes, but at the much higher levels we are more likely to be one and the same.

One another note, isn't this thread kind of what was referred by that thread that Canadian get upset by being called Americans?

On even another note, it may be the US who calls in Canada for assistance in the coming economic collapse. But who knows. Just enjoy what we have while we still have it.

This thread is somethin else...

Never really thought of it that way, though I should have because I've considered the SAME problem for anybody invading the US and trying to quell an American insurgency.

OP... you make very valid points. Canada is no longer the funny flannel hat of America.

What is the reason for this thread other than to piss people off? The premise itself is stupid, not to mention arrogant. We Americans have a grossly inflated sense who we are and what we can do. News flash, we are NOT special.

O your from Canada, that's the reason for this crazyness. Well I'll tell you why Canada may become "little America" eventually.... Oil Reserves. Enough said.

Hell, Americans in general have always thought they are the best. Its been drummed into them for generations.

Truth is they were the wealthiest and still are (for now) the most powerful.

But I still really dont see your aim other than to enrage the american members here.

FYI: In my reply to the post on "to all non Americans" a few days ago I have mentioned the US declaration on the war of 1812 in reading that the objective is to conquer ALL of the continent and "remove" the natives.
Also a FACT is that till the mid 30's and till to the realization that the true possible war would be in Europe with Hitler, the Canadian Command did had a #1 priority threat in their war plans being the USA. Only after WW2 did this #1 "enemy find itself removed from the list of Canadian War planners. Ask anyone who was back then in Canadian High command or someone today who IS aware of the back then active war/defense plans.

Besides from this, this scenario from the OP is not pulled out from thin air. Ask for example Elisabeth May from the Green Party of Canada to explain you a bit about the "less public" articles of the US/Canada Free trade agreement and you will realize that NAFTA is in essence a "free trade" ONLY if it benefits the USA.

Several think tank specialists have argued throughout the 60's onwards about the USA lacking one commodity and natural resources the most, WATER. And Canada has plenty of this. Also the North Eastern USA dependence on Quebec's hydro electric supplies.
So Canada is for sure not the #1 supplier of oil, it has a lot of other resources that if some newly elected and USA disliking PM would simply "pull the plug", the economy and day to day life of a large portion of the Eastern USA would suffer severely.

Also Canada is for sure not on the #1 list of targets to be taken next week in the pentagon, you can rest assured that in some back room a contingency plan is on file.

In a way this thread does tie in nicely with the OP on why America is hated.
The USA is well known for changing its "friends" like someone changes his underwear. Remember Iraq? Saddam was the nice friend whom the USA even gave some chemical weapons to gas his own people, - as long as he was bleeding the Iranians dry in his 8 some years of war with Iran. He became the "monster" only when he no longer was "useful".
Remember Nicaragua? Under Nixon and Ford the USA supported the Somoza regime. Then came Carter and withdrew all support and rather enabled support for the Sandinista. Then the senile movie cowboy became president and flipped again and began supporting the Contras.

Also to be added is the fact that the entire "Quebec separatist and independence" movement of the 60's till now was and still is pretty much funded by the CIA.
FYI Diefenbaker as well Trudeau were not to keen to support all foreign policies of the USA.
FYI if you are in Canada you can see advertisement for nice holidays to CUBA in almost every city and on TV and in the newspapers. If you put sugar in your coffee in Canada it is to 90% CUBAN sugar.
Canadians and Americans might get along very jolly with each other on a personal level, on a political level it looks a lot different.
For example just about when the Liberal Government discussed the decriminalization of marijuana, in one CBC discussion it was clearly stated, that even if we want to do this, the pressure from the USA, being our next door neighbor would retaliate with economic pressure.

For now, the war plans on Canada might just be collecting dust in the Pentagon in some back room, BUT - providing the USA manages to finally dominate such little pesky countries as Iran, Venezuela and others and has finally no more of a true resistance on a world scale, then Canada will move quickly to a #1 position as a target.

If any country invaded Canada... it would end up being a similar story to the invasion of the Soviet Union by Germany in 1941.

It would all go swell for a few months... then the winter.

Not to mention we canucks have a national pride that is un-paralleled, and in this type of situation, I'm quite sure we would set up a resistance whose numbers would dwarf that of the invading army.

Just a reminder that the form of government that both countries have is a form of fascism that work for the same agenda.

Fascism is Corporatism where we have the corporations that have usurped the state\province.

In theory the majority of United States never declare war simply because its people in good consciousness never declared war. It is the corporations that have gone to war misrepresenting them selfs as a consensus of the USA.

I am Canadian, and the last time I checked the same corporation that control the US control Canada as well.

Why would they go to war with them selfs?

All the Canadians have to do if America invaded is have a Canadian run for president and if they win the election problem solved,America would become Canada. You know just like having a Scot as a prime minister of England....

Well this is a fine example of the folly of arguing with idiots. Let the minority of American idiots bray. Why do you feel the need to join them. Canada is a great country. why would anyone invade it? I think it is too damn cold but so is Scotland.
