Clench That Ass Canada

Living in a country with such large oil deposits, so close to the United States has always been awkwardly frightening, albeit in a very non-threatening way. Jokes have always been fluttered north and south of the border in regards to an American invasion of the Great White North, however unlikely.

Not to suggest that situation has at all changed or in anyway taken steps towards a realisation of the unimaginable, but it is interesting to ponder the outcome the current scenario: Every conceivable oil bearing region this planet has is showing considerable amounts of military and political hostility towards American foreign policy and by extension threatening previously held norms of their “easy access” to oil, except for Canada.

Not to suggest that Canada should “arm-up” like Venzuala is currently doing:

Venezuela’s arms spending has climbed to more than $4 billion in the past two years, transforming the nation into Latin America’s largest weapons buyer and placing it ahead of other major purchasers in international arms markets like Pakistan and Iran.

Venezuelan military and government officials here say the arms acquisitions, which include dozens of fighter jets and attack helicopters and 100,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles, are needed to circumvent a ban by the United States on sales of American weapons to the country.

They also argue that Venezuela must strengthen its defenses to counter potential military aggression from the United States.

…but we should at least be clenching real tight right now. Sooner or later we’re going to start looking like fast-food or the wimpy kid with rich parents and too much jingle-jangle lunch money in his pocket.
