    Yes, Canadian soldiers, both men and women, are renowned for their superior skills and training - just ask any American soldier who's served with them if you want an answer. And no, a 59 yr old man is not a good recruit for our armed services, although if the time came when my services were needed or accepted, those services would be gladly offered.

    But hey, I'll bow to your advice on smugness since you seem to be an expert in the field.

    Yes these world renowned troops only engaged ISIS because they drove into an attack. Otherwise they hide in the wire.

    Simply slanderous. Canada is a staunch ally, and never has so much as a peep when it comes to standing with us. If this is the way you view friendships, you must be one lonely guy.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    The United States observes many international laws. It does not--and should not--observe any international law at the expense of its national security. If some one-world, America-hating commies in some foreign land think they can force this country to do anything, let them try.

    Yeah ok, nice tough talk but there is no international law that compliance of would compromise our national security. Such compliance might compromise power, leverage, control or our ability to pursue the interests of American oligarchs, and the ability to exploit the natural resources of weaker nations though.
