I've read this more than once on the board that it would be relatively easy for the US to invade and take over Canada. In a few hours some say. First off what would the motivation be? Well our natural resources of course. Oil, gas, water, etc. Do you think it would be that easy?
Canada is as well armed on a personal level as the States. We love our guns, we just don't go ape# over them. Think it would be easy? How did Viet Nam go? Iraq? Afghanistan? Now consider an enemy that looks like you. Speaks like you and acts like you do. Think it would be easy? You can't win a war of attrition against those that you can identify. What about an enemy that you CAN'T identify?
You want to talk terrorism? Hell, Jim Carrey could probably walk into the White house and blow the mother up. You see where I'm coming from. What aboot Mike from Canmore(regular guy). You going to stop him on the Saskatchewan or the Manitoban boarder? Plenty of easy ways to get into the States. Good luck DHS.
Is this going to happen or even likely to happen? Hell no. This is just for some that think this would be an easy go. It wouldn't be. You thought Viet Nam was tough? Iraq? Afghanistan? Try an enemy on your boarder that you can't identify. Badda BOOM. You'd be out within 2 years. You couldn't sustain what the Canadians could mount. Covertly. Yes, we could be easily run over by the US military machine but that's just the beginning. Try to hold it. We'd burn the WH down again.
As I said, this isn't for the average American. It's for the unthinking that see us as the "little brother". We're not. We don't need the US to protect us, we can take care of ourselves. Don't think so? Attack. It'll be your death knell.

Americans like you need to get the reality knocked back into them. Americ has tried twice to invade canada and lost both times, Canada is a huge country and there are lots of places to hide, do guerilla attacks, your military does not know our landscape, it would be like vietnam all over again. And also Americans like you need to realize america is no longer the most powerful country in the world. That would be china
