Short of a bonafide alien invasion, there is no way mainland America is occupied by anyone, without the express cooperation of our own government and soldiers, and that last part is as likely as me being crowned Jesus tomorrow by the world bank.
Wouldn't work. You can't get a big enough army into Canada without the US knowing about it. Warships are not really set up for coastal bombardment anymore. The few ships that could get here and fire ship to shore missiles would quickly be destroyed before causing any real damage. Why paratroops from Mexico? They are doing just find with their infiltrated ground army.

Use a small crack teams of troops to storm the whitehouse, capture the media stations and then take the president and vice president hostage and use the threat of my nukes against major population targets to subdue and take over.
Then once I had the government in my hands, I wouldn't need to roll my tanks in.

Kim Jung Ill is the OP.
A fifth column is a group of people who clandestinely undermine a larger group such as a nation from within.
The term originated with a 1936 radio address by Emilio Mola, a Nationalist General during the 1936–39 Spanish Civil War. As his army approached Madrid, a message was broadcast that the four columns of his forces outside the city would be supported by a "fifth column" of his supporters inside the city, intent on undermining the Republican government from within (see Siege of Madrid). The term was used as the title of Ernest Hemingway's only play, which he wrote while the city was being bombarded; the play was published in 1938 in his book The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories.
In fact, this supposed "fifth column" did not prove very effective, as demonstrated by the fact that Madrid held out until 1939 despite very heavy fighting. Nevertheless, the term caught on and was used extensively, especially by those fighting the Fascists and Nazis.
