I'll take the analysis of the learned scholar from the Royal Military College of Canada as more accurate than your rose-colored opinion. He gives Canada 24 hours tops against the U.S. military before it has to surrender.

150 years of Confederation and 24 hours could end it all. Thank goodness Americans are generous and benevolent towards our neighbors.

I remember when the U.S invaded Iraq back in 03.. Remember when Bush was on that A/C Carrier pumping up the troops after the 'victory'

The resistance wasn't in the form of an organized military that had any chance of repelling the U.S (they didn't). As we all know as do the tens of thousands dead/wounded Americans and probably hundreds of thousands of Iraqi soldiers/civilians ultimately found out, the resistance was a long, painful one that had to of wiped the smile off of Bush/Cheney and Rumfeld's faces as the years wore on. The region is still reeling from what was done back in 03.

Its why those who get off with this stuff and even entertain it are deeply disturbing.

Well, the Iraqi Civil War was what destroyed Bush's strategy. The bloodshed of 2006-2007 was Shias and Sunnis killing each other.

The article takes information from the scholar about military capabilities and tactics for sure but it is only on a technical level. The article itself and the views of the author are largely pathetic, twisted and short sighted. It doesn't deal with the long term impact of such a move. As for thank goodness Americans are generous and benevolent towards its neighbours - that would have to be a thank goodness for Americans as well. If the world isn't destroyed by climate change or nukes, it'll be because of restraint and cooperation, not blind aggression.

Didn't you once imply that Canadian university education was inferior? Yet you now trust a Canadian scholar. Lol.

Why don't you refer to an American scholar?

Lol.

You just said you'd support an American invasion of the Caribbean.

It was the catalyst for all that ensued after it. As far as I'm concerned, it wasn't worth the death of over 5000 American soldiers and civilians (which didn't happen in the initial stages of the invasion btw), the wounding and disfigurement of 10's of thousands of American soldiers and civilians and the probable hundreds of thousands of dead/disfigured Iraqi soldiers and civilians.

I would imagine if Professor Coombs knew how the author would twist things around to convey the pathetic message he was conveying, he wouldn't have agreed to the interview. Its a shock value article taking advantage of the unpredictability of the new administration coming in. There are no shortage of those in the media doing the same thing down in the U.S.

Lol.

You just said you'd support an American invasion of the Caribbean.
The Canadian university system is far inferior to the American one. The U.S. has 17 of the world's 25 greatest universities (68%), including my own, and 26 of the Top 50 (52%). Canada only has 1 university in the Top 25 (the University of Toronto) and only 3 in the Top 50 (McGill and UBC).

That said, a Canadian university scholar is certainly more qualified than you and your nationalist, rose-colored opinions.

I would support an invasion of the Caribbean. And that's because I'm more hawkish than the average American.

It wasn't worth it. Never said it was.

War and invasions are a dirty thing.. Let's not make light of that fact and let's not get all horny about silly and short sighted articles that take advantage of what is going on in the U.S.
