to Invade Canada
is a definite threat to the U.S., and should be brought under U.S.
control until such time they can get their act together. A recent
article in "le Devoir" outlines Ottawa's threat. In retaliation
for illegal U.S. collections of some 4 billion dollars in softwood
lumber tariffs, Canada is threatening to cut off oil shipments to
the U.S.! How dare they think they can use their oil to force us
to respect an international trade agreement (NAFTA)? In a recent
interview, Canadian Prime Minister stated, "Its certain that
the energy security of the United States is an enormous preoccupation
for the Bush administration...and the United States must know that,
if they want to count on Canadian help...they must keep Canada happy."
Well, Canada is not there to keep Canadians happy, it us there to
keep US happy!
of Canada's energy exports come to the Unites States, but they are
now talking about sending 450,000 barrels a day to China because
the United States "...does not keep its word." They regard
the U.S. violations of the NAFTA Treaty with some concern. They
say they are losing respect. Why should America invest in Canadian
oil enterprises if they are going to blackmail us with it? And besides,
we are strong enough to do what we darn well please, like we do
in the rest of the world.
oil as a weapon would be sort of like Saudi Arabia, Iraq, or Iran
telling the U.S. they were not going to ship us any more oil until
we stopped supporting Israel (a state they would like to see abolished).
Just as we can't have that, and must guarantee our oil supply from
the Middle East as our economy is dependent on it, we must guarantee
it from Canada. We could pretend they have weapons of mass destruction,
or are acquiring a nuclear bomb as an excuse, not that we need one.
We could also go to protect the freedom of the Inuits, Quebecois,
It should be
easy to shock and awe them into submission. They don't have much
of an army, and could not put up any more of a fight than the Iraqis
did. Once they were subdued, we could send in Halliburton and Bechtel
to rebuild their infrastructure and build permanent U.S. bases there.
They would be relatively easy to occupy, as they speak a variant
of English, which is spoken by most of our troops. Even factoring
in Quebec, 80% of our troops could communicate with the occupied
populace, as opposed to .001% of our troops in Iraq who can speak
Kurdish. When we yelled, "Stop or I'll shoot!" in English
at a Canadian, he'd probably get the idea and stop, unlike the Iraqis
who don't have the foggiest.
We need assured
supplies of Canadian exports such as oil (especially oil), hydroelectrically
generated electricity, natural gas, pulpwood and lumber so we can
keep building 4,000 sq ft houses and also printing the New York
Times. Both of my vehicles, a Dodge Caravan and a Toyota were made
in Canada. What if they stopped shipping them down here because
we were harassing them for some reason? We'd be left driving Yugos...!
the United States is the largest foreign investor in Canada ($228
billion in 2004) and we have to protect our investment. The Canadians
are getting far too big a share of the profits from this investment,
as witnessed by the fact they have a lot of money left over and
are using it buy the U.S. (what is left after the Chinese and Saudis
get theirs). That $165 billion they have invested down here should
be used to benefit us, not them. According to that noted economist,
Anne Coulter, "We keep their economy afloat." It is time
we stopped doing that, and just took it over for our benefit. They
think that just because they're "Americans" (living in
North America) they can rely on us to keep them going.
policy analyst Tucker Carlson has said, "Canadians with ambition
move to the United States." Well, a U.S. occupation could stop
all of that by making Canada a bastion of freedom and a more desirable
place to live with our version of liberty, democracy, guns, and
Fox News. They would be grateful to finally become a part of our
have long memories, and remember how Canada continued to trade with
North Vietnam back in the 70's? Who do they think they are? We need
to liberate them from their leaders who don't do things our way!
We invaded them before in our Revolutionary days, and by golly,
we can do it again!
