I just picked up this book at the library, it's an animated story, basically a hardcover comic book for adults but it proposes an interesting scenario. The US destroys their own environment in the future and perpetrates a false flag against their own liberal president in order to blame Canada for a terrorist attack and invade to claim our fresh water supply. The Canadian freedom fighters do their best to fight back against overwhelming odds. We've always assumed that the Americans were our friendly cousins but when American interests are at stake, there are no friends for them.
I ordered it from Amazon, I haven't read it yet --- but it is pretty obvious that "Manifest Destiny" still exists in some minds in the US. I am sure in the dark recesses of the Republican Party there are still those who harbour the belief that God had ordained the US to occupy all of North America. After seeing how quickly things have degenerated in the US with the lying cheetoh in power this is not too much of a stretch. All Canadians should be aware that the US would not hesitate to move north militarily. See how deep paranoia runs -- -
I've been of the creeping suspicion that this is actually going to take place someday, in some form. We have all the land, water, wood, and minerals. California is on fire. The south is either burning or being blasted by hurricanes. Climate change will render many parts of the US uninhabitable within, say, 40-50 years? Where do you think they're gonna turn? Mexico? Nope. We are their "backup plan"..
I would seriously hope that nothing like this ever happens. Before, I would say it could never happen, but now, I'm not so sure. The United States has completely lost its way. This is not the United States that I know. Unfortunately, I don't see it changing back anytime soon. The greed runs too deep.
I just remembered a book I read in elementary school called Exxoneration. It's a wishful thinking experiment where Canada's natural resources became leverage for the overthrow of the USA. That and Terror in the Tar Sands. Now I'm wondering what Johnny Canuck is up to. And Captain Canuck. And Vindicator for that matter.
