Invade Canada!

Given the state of the Canadian military, the Mounties would probably be their best defence. Posted by Picasa

Never let a slow news day prevent you from finding a reason for bashing America. The Washington Post ("Raiding the Icebox") digs up a War Department contingency plan for invading Canada (then a colony of Great Britain)from the 1930's ( "The whole brouhaha made the front page of the New York Times on May 1, 1935.")that's been public since the 1970's and uses it to get some digs in on the U.S.

Invading Canada is an old American tradition. Invading Canada successfully is not. (snip)After that, Americans stopped invading Canada and took up other hobbies, such as invading Mexico, Haiti, Nicaragua, Grenada and, of course, Iraq.
Notice a couple of countries omitted from the list? Say France, Germany, Italy, etc.? Don't let something as trivial as WWII get in the way of presenting America in the worst possible light.
