I would just like to point out that there was a lot of talk of the US annexing part of Canada in the 90's when the Quebec independence movement looked like it might happen. The idea was that if Quebec became a sovereign nation, all the provinces west of Quebec would become Canada, and the provinces east of Quebec (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador) would no longer be physically connected to Canada and would become part of the US.

Every other country put together, because it would be a move of unequal imperialism that no one would tolerate. It would mean US leadership has gone completely insane, and would start WW3.
And it's a war the US would ultimately lose on the basis of GDP, population and raw resources.
#78 - nigeltheoutlaw (03/23/2014) [-]
Just like the entire world came together when Japan invaded China, or when Germany annexed Austria, or when Russia took the Eastern Bloc, or when France invaded Vietnam to try to maintain its hold, right? That's assuming that you could convince China and Russia to cooperate with Europe on anything, or that any of the weaker countries would give enough of a shit what we were doing to Canada to risk getting assraped by the U.S.
No other country matches us in military tech, except maybe Russia, and they don't have enough of it for their own military, let alone anybody else's. No other country's GDPPC comes close to ours. We provide all of Japan's military and most of Europe's military power. That right there rules out Europe and Japan. We're China's biggest customers, so they wouldn't go to war since it would crash their economy. Russia would levee sanctions against us probably, but why would they go to war with us over Canada? Nobody gives a shit about Canada internationally, or at least not enough to go to war with the most powerful nation on the planet, and Russia sure as hell wouldn't want to risk the possibility of nuclear war with the U.S. due to past animosities. So what major power does that leave? It's starting to look mighty bare.
The only way they would have a chance would be if India, Nigeria (assuming the warring tribes could chill long enough to actually band together), and India threw conscripts at us until we drowned in poorly armed, untrained farmers and goat herders. However, even if they got all those people together, none of those countries have anywhere close to decent navies, and would have no way to actually get those soldiers to the Americas in order to actually wage a war against us.
Face it, America could annex Canada tomorrow, and everybody would either be too disinterested or too afraid of repercussions to do anything about it.

I don't think the States' own population would stand for it, personally. American society may be patriotic, militaristic and proud, but it's also home to an immensely large population that is barely held together even now, it's built on ideals that are essentially the opposite of imperialism (the U.S. has not always followed these ideals, true, but the high value of freedom and democracy is still very much present in the U.S.), and it's home to a great many influential intellectuals, scientists and political activists who would see themselves hanged, drawn and quartered before they allowed this to happen.
Lastly, consider all the fighting forces. Consider how large the military actually is. Even with all the discipline in the world I find it hard to imagine that at least half of them wouldn't be rather extremely reluctant to go to war with another western country without very, very good reason - especially one so close both geographically and culturally as Canada.
#107 - nigeltheoutlaw (03/23/2014) [-]
Of course we wouldn't. As you said, invading and colonizing a country runs deeply counter to our ideals, and we have had peaceful and fruitful relations with Canada for almost two centuries. Why would we fuck that up?
Also right. I was only arguing that the world couldn't stop us, not that we wouldn't stop ourselves (assuming any politician actually argued that we should annex Canada). I mean, almost all of America loves Canada; it'd be like us invading the UK or somewhere similar, and even the staunchest patriot would tell our leaders to fuck off if they tried.

> Just like the entire world came together when Japan invaded China ...last I checked none of those countries got to keep what they captured, it did lead to international war, and what they tried capturing had anything on the enormity of Canada
> Nobody gives a shit about Canada internationally ... no.. that's stupid
> No other country matches us in military tech ... no.. that's also stupid
The US could never, and will never annex Canada, because it's leadership, despite being corrupt and pretty dumb, isn't as retarded as you.
Has this turned into a usa-rules circlejerk? Are you butthurt about your collapsing economy or your general level of underdevelopment? Nothing left to be proud of but a giant useless military that's putting you into irrecoverable debt? Fear not! Canada will actually save you, with slightly cheaper oil!
#98 - nigeltheoutlaw (03/23/2014) [-]
Who would go to war with the U.S. over Canada? Probably the same ones that are going to war with Russia over Crimea, i.e. none of them. The costs greatly outweigh any of the benefits that would arise from drawing the ire of the U.S., just as taking military action against Russia for their Ukraine tomfoolery would bring too great a cost for the reward of stopping them.
What country matches us in military tech aside from maybe Russia? I gave well explained reasons, but all you have is "dats dum tho". Actually bring up a specific point to refute me.
No, this is a "I actually argued my point instead of just deriding your comments as stupid" circlejerk, and nowhere did I say we should invade Canada. Learn to fucking read. If you can actually ague a rebuttal then I would be glad to hear it, but being mad just because I'm arguing in favor of America is just making you look uninformed a little pathetic. Bringing up points that are entirely unrelated to the discussion at hand is only exacerbating that effect, so maybe you should reconsider.
#133 - nigeltheoutlaw (03/24/2014) [-]
It would, but I was only arguing that nobody would stop us from invading and annexing Canada, not that it would be a feasible long term strategy or a good idea for us to do so. It would in fact be a really fucking stupid idea, and even if the government thought it was a good idea, most of the populace would tell them to fuck off and have zero participation in the invasion since our two countries are on such good terms.
No problem; I would hope that I know about U.S. politics and capabilities since I live here and all.
#138 - seymion (03/24/2014) [-]
No, to start with Europe and parts of South East Asia relies on US support, with the US tied up in Canada what would stop Russia and China from expending into the US sphere of influence.
Obvious targets for China would be to support PRK to invade South Korea, or retaking Taiwan, or just settling the score with Japan.
Those three countries are pretty much necessary to keep China in check.
Russia could do as they are doing now with Crimea just on a much larger scale like trying to restore the country to it's Sovjet or imperial borders.
By the time the US had calmed the situation in Canada they could find themselves pretty alone against enemies who could also have had the time to settle the situation in newly conquered or puppet-ed areas.
#215 - nigeltheoutlaw (03/24/2014) [-]
Our navy would. An invasion of Canda would be almost entirely ground forces, and our Navy is by far the most powerful in the world. We'd destroy every ship China had and they wouldn't be able to get any of their troops to South Korea, Taiwan or Japan. Southeast Asia would probably be theirs, but they'd still encounter pretty staunch resistance from them, and would have to contend with the huge amount of unexploded mines that litter places like Laos and Cambodia. We also have a huge air base in Japan that would be able to give any assailed country heavy air support.
The PRK would suffer such heavy losses invading South Korea from just the two miles of mines that I have a lot of doubt they would be able to pull it off. More likely they'd launch a short range nuke into Seoul, then start shelling South Korea incessantly, but a ground invasion would be unlikely to succeed without any naval support.
They could, but Canada is such a non-entity militaristically that we would still have our heavy military presence in Europe that would be able to counter any invasions with the help of domestic EU forces until we could mount a counter-offensive. The EU, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Southeast Asia, and even the whole world might be mad we invaded Canada, but they would never deny our help against powerful invaders, and would beg us to come to their aid.
#57 - thelastamerican (03/23/2014) [-]
OH, I misunderstood you. Actually, no. China has the manpower, but not the technology. Russia has the technology, but not the manpower. The EU has it's continental defense provided BY the US, and I can't really think of any other country with the stones. Either way, the US military complex is so incredibly massive, that a knockdown punch out with the US would probably last several weeks.
#62 - nigeltheoutlaw (03/23/2014) [-]
That's fine, I wasn't very clear in the first place. Yeah, that was basically my train of thought on the whole matter as well. If the U.S. really wanted to be an imperial power like some claim, i.e. invading and colonizing foreign states such as Canada, no military on the planet would be able to stop us from it.
#89 - hudis (03/23/2014) [-]
Thing is, territory isn't as important now as it was 200-300 years ago. The U.S. reinvented imperialism a long time ago, but in the form of economical/industrial imperialism as opposed to colonial/territorial. Right now, U.S.-based companies have their hands in people's pockets all over the globe, and that is where true power lies. Not with congress, the senate or the president - but with big businesses and corporations.
Now, I would never hold any random American responsible for this type of worldwide exploitation, but I do think that the deeply rooted capitalism and individualistic culture of the U.S. makes it significantly easier to keep such a machine running than it would be in a society with a different ideological foundation.
I'm not really fussed either way, personally. People always find ways to accumulate vast power and use it to stand above other people, and corporate imperialism is just the currently most effective way of exercising it on a global level. I just wish that the U.S. would use this immense power to create a nation that can truly be called the best country in the world, the land of freedom and a place where people can truly live, prosper and thrive without doing so on the backs of 50 million people stuck in the gutter.
#100 - nigeltheoutlaw (03/23/2014) [-]
Yeah, I agree. That's probably why we do new wave imperialism instead of the old styled one.
Probably. Capitalism makes any sort of exploitative deed easier, especially with our prevailing "they could do it too if they worked harder" mentality.
You and me both. Think of what amazing things my country could do if we pulled our heads out of our asses for two seconds and looked at domestic problems instead of other people's.
#68 - nigeltheoutlaw (03/23/2014) [-]
Russia doesn't have nearly enough people, and it has almost no navy. It's tech and Air Force are okay, but it's dwarfed by the U.S.'s. China has the people, but most of its tech is severely outdated, it doesn't have enough of it to arm the amount of people they would need to conscript to be a threat, and its Air Force and navy are a joke. They have one aircraft carrier (as does Russia), and last I checked it was in dry dock with major structural issues. The only way either could be a threat would be with nuclear weapons, but no country even considers that as a military option since it would annihilate the entire planet.
TL ; DR: We would fuck them both in the ass in a war.
