The new enemy for America is. . . Canada!
You might think that it was probably not a good idea for those American soldiers to open up with a machine gun on a diplomatic car in the Baghdad Green Zone. Still, those pesky Canadians had to be taught who's the top dog around Iraq, I suppose.

Yes, that's right, a Canadian vehicle with the acting ambassador inside, and a damned great maple leaf stuck on its windscreen has been riddled by gunfire.

The Canadians claim that their drivers are all given special tuition in how to avoid getting shot by trigger-happy goons from the USA. As usual the Americans are claiming that the car ignored instructions to stay away from the convoy.

The nice thing about all of this is that it further alienates the USA from those countries that are historically its friends. It will take more time, but I honestly believe that within my lifetime the NATO alliance will go the way of the Warsaw Pact, and the USA will find itself alone in the world.

Bring 'em on!

Canada hasn't been our friend for years, so too damned bad. Next time stay back, or the trigger happy goons might send the idiots back home in a box.

As for the rest of the world, big fat hairy deal. If we have to go it alone, we will. That's the advantage of not sucking, which is an advantage not shared by such superpowers as Canada and France.

Typical deluded Yanqui crap.

First of all: there's no "we", no "nation": it's all artificial, propagandized construct (which this guy obviously swallows, hook, line & sinker). Fact of the matter is, there are idiot Canucks who identify with the U.S. imperialist regime -- and there are plenty of Usians ready to get rid of same.

It'll be a lot worse than some mythic "we" standing alone against the world, chump.

Bring it on, indeed.
