Everyone accuses the US of invading Iraq for oil. The problem is, we haven’t taken any of Iraq’s oil. Not one drop. All the war booty has gone to defense and construction companies in the form of lucrative contracts, but we haven’t actually taken Iraq’s natural resources.
So let’s invade Canada. It has loads of oil and other natural resources, and aside from Quebec its people already speak English and more or less share our culture. And let’s face it, with much respect to a few Canadian badasses (shout out to porcelainprincess), for the most part Canadians are kind of pacifistic. I think we could takeover without much resistance, and it would be an easy matter to send colonists across the border.
So who’s with me?
