Invade Canada!

This blog has a coherent Canada policy. On even days, we advocate for the conquest of Canada and its reinvention as an American frontier province and overflow Wal-Mart parking lot. On odd days, we assert that Canada is an urban legend, and that there is nothing north of the 49th parallel but icebergs, caribou, and the occasional Inuit.

Now we find that the Army has a plan. (Well, they had a plan 70 years ago...who knows if they've kept it up to date.)

It seems a little silly, but it is generally a good idea to have contingency plans in place for things like this. You never know what those wily Canucks might be up to...

Canada is generally a more well adjusted society than the United States.

Their major shortcoming is beginning to emulate the U.S. patterns of Suburban Sprawl typified by places like Colorado, the Sunbelt, and California.

Still, now that great quantities of potentially retrievable oil have been found their it may be handy that our military has pre-existing strategies for invading Canada.

It will be a multi-step process. First we sponsor a coup against their government, calling them Communists. Let's call the Coup leaders the "Shah" or the "Ayatollah". Then we wait for this regime to commit some atrocities and sponsor terrorism. Then we move in and liberate the Canadians.

Michael J Fox and Alanis Morrisette have our backs.

Yes, which is why there are no plans for taking over the U.S.

"Their major shortcoming is beginning to emulate the U.S. patterns". end of sentence

Besides, Canada has Bare Naked Ladies. What more could one want?
