'Our War Against Canada': Alex Cox and the Long March of American Militarism....
...is planning a three-part, 90-minute documentary on the all-too-true story of serious American plans to wage war against Canada, Mexico and Great
Britain in the years before World War II. These detailed schemes are filled with "echoes from the future," in Pasternak's apt phrase: eerie
prefigurements and deep-rooted patterns that have been played out — in reality, not just on paper — over and over down through the decades, and
now confront us once again, most starkly and horribly, in Iraq...
"War Plan Red" dealt with a proposed war against Great Britain, then considered America's chief rival for economic dominance in the world. The 1935
plan envisioned major strikes on UK interests around the world, with the primary focus on nearby Canada, which was to be subjected to a full-scale
invasion and occupation, with aerial bombing of cities, massed infantry and armor attacks — and the use of poison gas. The capture of Canada's vast
mineral wealth was another goal of the attack. How serious was this plan? Serious enough to be the object of the largest war games in U.S. history up
to that time: 50,000 troops on a detailed dry run of the cross-border assault....
...As Cox notes in the documentary's conclusion: "These war plans tell us some disturbing things about the world's last superpower — about America's
attitude toward its allies, about the motivation behind its lofty sentiments, and its inexplicable acts of terrorism and war." Like some grand
cinematic mashup, the film will force past and present into a strange, disturbing harmony whose resonances will almost certainly, tragically, echo far
into the future....
