What would be more expensive and difficult, Marc? Are you saying that it is cheaper
for Canada to support nearly every US military operation (i.e. war) than to not
support them? That makes no sense to me. Are you saying that it is cheaper and
easier for Canada to support other US policy actions even if we don't like them and
feel that they will be detrimental to our country? That also makes no sense.
I'll slightly violate a personal (temporary) rule of mine and ask all on this list who
think that Canada needs the US to protect it:
Please send me a list of Canada's enemies who could invade Canada.
Your list will be empty. There is no one.
Hence, Canada does not need _any_ form of US protection. Not economic, not from
ballistic missiles (who would launch against us?), not from land invasions, not from
sea invasions, not from air invasions, not from no one no how.
(Just as a little tip to those who might think that invasions are easy: research the
allies' effort in the Gulf War to beat puny little Iraq. Try to extrapolate to
massive Canada (one of many caveats: we have winter). Extra hint: try to find any US
Cold War plans for the invasion of Russia).
