Read the Invasion Plans for Canada--Part of Many War Plans
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
The Pentagon keeps on file an array of war plans for every contingency. Since we have clashed with both Mexico and Canada repeatedly in the past, it is no surprize to learn that we still make plans for future possible clashes. This is to be taken very seriously by our neighbors who have natural resources we might want to appropriate for the Vaterland.
From the Washington Post:
Invading Canada won't be like invading Iraq: When we invade Canada, nobody will be able to grumble that we didn't have a plan.The Canadians can retaliate simply by refusing to speak English (smiling). Let the people in Montreal take the brunt, they can deal with les Amerique.
The United States government does have a plan to invade Canada. It's a 94-page document called "Joint Army and Navy Basic War Plan -- Red," with the word SECRET stamped on the cover. It's a bold plan, a bodacious plan, a step-by-step plan to invade, seize and annex our neighbor to the north. It goes like this:
It sounds like a joke but it's not. War Plan Red is real. It was drawn up and approved by the War Department in 1930, then updated in 1934 and 1935. It was declassified in 1974 and the word "SECRET" crossed out with a heavy pencil. Now it sits in a little gray box in the National Archives in College Park, available to anybody, even Canadian spies. They can photocopy it for 15 cents a page.I have a very severe problem with secret war plans. Namely, the urge to set up a crisis so one can impliment the plans is a great temptation so rather than diplomatically dealing with the assassination of an Archduke, one just sets into motion a plan to invade the Netherlands and attack Paris, no?
No country should have secret invasion plans with allies. Period. Any ally who discovers such plans should raise a huge diplomatic row. Just like all the still secret plans for nuclear war, the populace which will bear the brunt of the violence has a right to see what sort of hideous plans the military is hatching. Especially with nuclear war!
Mexico has been invaded several times and we chopped off about half of Mexico's state territory over the years. Theoretical invasion plans aren't hyperbole with Mexico, it is a real possible threat. With Americans talking about simultaneously locking all Mexicans out of el Norte and bringing military power to bear on the border with Mexico, plus our refusal to sign the Kyoto Accords and thus, dooming Mexico to a future of increasingly desertfying conditions that will make life very tenuous there means tension between our nations will grow, not shrink.
Mexico is possibly on the verge of voting into office a populist who is friendly with the growing alliance of leftist leaders in Spanish speaking countries and our reactionary imperialism greatly resents any manifestation of popularity in our subject proto-colonies. We invest a lot in maintaining unpopular, murderous dictators down south and thanks to Spain becoming much more liberal, so do former Spanish colonies. This is why the American right wing supported Franco (and their favorite, Hitler). When Spain liberalizes, so follows all the former colonies for this is a cultural thing, a Zeitgeist matter.
The Canadians shouldn't trust the USA to be honorable and respect borders. We already made it clear, once we get international organizations to certify a country is helpless, we invade with impunity and cruel, wanton disregard for civilians. And like Iraq, Canada represents energy and water, the stuff of life itself. Two things we are destroying or eating up massively here, building our hyper bubble.
From the NYT:
Nearly 10 million gallons a day draining away in the driest state in the nation - and the fastest growing one, propelled by the demographic rocket of Las Vegas - is just one of the many strange byproducts of Nevada's tangled love affair with gold.As my previous climatic stories show, Texas Burns and Long Range Weather and Wishful Thinking About Mother Nature, we are in a destructive pattern with a bad ending. Namely, the snows that feed the mighty rivers in the West are failing and the glaciers are disappearing so there is no year-round feed of moisture and the rivers that do exist are used up totally, the Colorado, for example, is now a sluggard trickle when it reaches Mexico, depriving Mexico of those waters, leaving them high and dry and is a source of diplomatic complaints.
An extensive review of government documents and court records, and scores of interviews with scientists and present and former mine industry workers and regulators, show that an absence of federal guidelines, of the sort that are commonplace for coal or oil, allowed gold wide latitude to operate here in the rural fastness of the desert, perhaps more than any other American industry.
Canada has lots of nice, fresh water! Since a Canadian gold mining company is destroying Nevada's water, it is logical that Americans will retaliate violently in the opposite direction! These land/resource wars are a main trigger of violent invasions since the dawn of humanity.
Now to see the secret invasion plans Japan and the USA have cooked up this last five years! You can bet, the Chinese have copies of this in a safe in Beijing.
