I think, for the most part, I agree with the sentiment that an out and out invasion of North America, (I am including Canada in that, as a canadian, I
tell you there would be a lot of us that don't just roll over), would be doomed to failure. The tactical and strategic situations would be
But then my next follow up would be, when is an invasion not an invasion? If the powers that be could have a situation in which the foreign forces
would not be viewed as invaders, then they could get the boots on the ground without worrying about them being intercepted en route.
A natural disaster of some magnitude hitting the states, followed by a disabled infrastructure, would ensure that the states would be more open to
What form this would take is a discussion for someone more clever than I, but considering the forum we're on, I think we can get some good ideas.
Such as massive earth quake, a plague or pandemic situation starting in the states, a nuclear based EMP strike from a more vocal enemy, or any other
number of items. Heck, if I were to guess, I'd say it would probably be more than one event. It would have to be significant to ensure the states was
unable to deal with it on their own.
So if such an even does happen, what then? Well obviously the countries in question offer their help. Depending on the leadership in the white house,
they could even tell the populace to comply with the relief forces while the government tries to restore order. Or if the government is disabled in
some way, then they'd just try to win the hearts and minds of the people by offering immediate relief and taking over leadership positions. All with
the air of helping America of course. Military hardware to some degree would even be seen as needed to help keep the peace in such an environment. And
make no mistake, there will be lawlessness, any time a large disaster strike a major city, while many people evacuate and play it safe, there's
always a number that remains to loot and pillage and burn.
Once their relief forces are on the ground, it would be a fairly easy transition to occupation forces. Of course, if they are too obvious about it,
then they no longer have popular support, and certain populations will begin to resit. I suspect some populations would have already started resiting
before this point, but if the relief troops are here at the request of the government, then they'd be working with US forces as well, or whatever
remained of them, giving them a greater air of legitimacy.
Never let a good crisis go to waste. If some really really bad happens to the states, I'd be willing to bet that the U.N. is all too eager to offer
help. The problem is, once here, how to make them go home again. And that's the crux of the matter. As with my example above, I don't think getting
the forces here would be as hard is it's been made out to be, given the right circumstances.
