    Last time the USA tried to invade Canada it didn't go so well for them.
    In fact unlike the USA, Canada has never lost a war. *cough* Vietnam *cough*
    Probably the two closest countries in the world now though

    Canadians sign up to fight with U.S. in Vietnam

    "Vietnam may have been America's war but Canada was heavily involved — for and against. Canada harboured American draft dodgers and helped supervise ceasefires. But at the same time, about 30,000 Canadians volunteered to fight in southeast Asia. And there was Canada's involvement in secret missions, weapons testing and arms production.

    Canadians fighting in a war doesn't mean Canada is fighting that war. Those Canadians were fighting not for Canada but the USA.
    Was the USA fighting the Spanish civil war?

    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    So now if the whole 30000 Canadians fighting in Vietnam was not "proof" that Canada was fighting in Vietnam (ALSO BOLDED!) why did you include it?
    As to the secret missions, what secret missions? I have seen the claims but no evidence of what they were or how that makes Canada In the war. as to weapons testing and arms production in what universe does that make any nation part of a war?

    Canada did not fight in the Vietnam War and diplomatically it was "officially non-belligerent".[1] The country's troop deployments to Vietnam were limited to a small number of national forces in 1973 to help enforce the Paris Peace Accords.[2] Nevertheless, the war had considerable effects on Canada, while Canada and Canadians affected the war, in return.

    Sorry only Americans who feel inferior to Canada having lost a war to them want to pretend that Canada was fighting in a war that the USA lost.
    take your inferiority complex and crappy beer elsewhere.

    What secret missions?
    This?
    One representative (Blair Seaborn, younger brother of Robert Seaborn) was even involved in secretly exchanging messages between the U.S. and North Vietnam on behalf of the Americans
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_and_the_Vietnam_War
    How is that Canada being at war in Vietnam?

    In what universe is weapons testing and arms production being at war?

    I take it from your cropping your own post you have acknowledged your utter fail in pretending that Canadians volunteering for the US military means that Canada was at war in Vietnam?

    Canadian soldiers just slow me down. The soldiers I was most impressed with? Surprisingly, the French. Those guys/girls were machines!
