Everybody spies on everybody (except for the countries that agree not to spy on each other... and then spy on each other EXTRA secretly), and everybody plays the outrage card when they catch someone spying on them.

Bravo, subby, for avoiding obvious, "... and that's a lot of spying." in headline.

Canada has Georges Saint Pierre. No contest.

That probably depends on where the fight is.  Home field advantage for both countries in a land war, and Canada would probably win in a war at sea.

Meanwhile, Canada's mole has infiltrated the American government and had begun the process of collapsing it.

Ladies and gentlemen, Canada is making a play for empire.

A POWER play.

No way, too good.  He has to be a Soviet sleeper agent under the guise of a mild Canadian.  He was suppose to wait for the signal from the new 100 dollar bill, but he acted too soon when he saw a picture of it on the news.

It's true, the entire Tea Party movement is led by Canadian sleeper agents. It'll be a shame to kill them when their usefulness has ended, but there's no way they can live in polite society.

Yeah, we get that we're one-tenth your size, Bluto. This is why we breed sleeper agents like Ted Cruz to destroy you with your own institutions. Better learn Spanish, Mandarin and French, Yankees!

That's interesting. That's not the Canadian spy service I was expecting to read about.

It's true. In fact, Canada's special forces are as good as any in the world. And that's not even counting all the Israelis who travel with fake Canadian passports.

Lighten up, Francois.  I've worked with Canadian military personnel....even they make fun of the small size of Canada's armed forces.

Actually I take it back the Brazilian Navy has a lot of hardware, holy shiat.

Brazilians don't mess around.  Canada might want to reconsider lest they become another Paraguay.

Well, I hope they just spy right back at us. I believe that good spying makes good neighbours. No surprises, military or economic, is good surprises.

In other news Edward Snowden seems to have be spying on the US spying on Canada spying on Brazil. Did you notice that?

He likes us, he really likes us!

Well, not technically spying, I suppose, if you routinely share documents voluntarily, which is probably how the NSA got them.

We have no secrets from our dear friends in the US. Well, none that I am authorized to reveal here.

Canada and Brazil are rivals and partners in mining, lumbering and the aircraft industry. We have our little tiffs, but all in all the relationship is valuable to us both, so I hope it isn't soured by a silly little thing like who spyed on who.

In fact, I hope if the Brazilians are spying on our petroleum industry that they will tell us what the fark they are up to, the bastards. It would be nice to know.

Hey, we've invaded tougher nuts to crack than Brazil. Germany, the United States, Japan, Italy, to name but a few. How many countries can claim they've invaded four member states of the Group of Seven? Well, most of the members of the Group of Seven, but besides us, who?

In the event of a war between Canada and Brazil, the best option would be a land war fought by each country on its own territory. A nice gentlemanly war, fought with letters and squibs, by cartoonists and by consumers of Brazil nuts and New Brunswick potatoes.

Because the logistics of bringing the war to the enemy are appalling when you are two gigantic but not super-power countries half a world apart.

Vive la différence!

I mean, we're not the British. They have the navy to fight a silly little war on the other side of the Earth. We do not. The only country we can afford to invade is France, and that's only because of St-Pierre and Miquelon. We'd leave that war to Newfie fishing boat captains, I think, until the French navy showed up and then we'd sensibly retreat to someplace where the French navy can't go, like Lake Erie or Lake Ontario. There we would moon the French navy in the security of our of our semi-private inland seas. It would be called the Bathtub War.

Oh, wait. There' s another idea. A naval war between Canada and Brazil would also be a good idea provided it was fought on the Great Lakes and they didn't cheat by sending boats up the Erie Canal. America, I'm saying this now just in case: never allow the Brazilians up the Erie Canal. You don't want to have to add Portuguese to your road signs in Vermont and New Hampshire. Trust me.

We won Iraq2.  Afganistan was the cost of not going into Iraq.

We only went there to build friends, bridges, and schools.  That's the official story line given by Adolf Harper.

Aaannnnddd, we're done here.

Still, wouldn't be surprised if some of Canada's mining/engineering companies were up to some shenanigans with CSIS, they've got a well-deserved reputation for shiatty behavior overseas.

Have a spin though the link, CSIS is the red headed stepchild of the agency actually involved here.
