Sounds like North Polians need a dose of Freedoms.

So a repeat from yesterday, just linked to a different article.

Canada also has a big interest up there.  It would be interesting to see our neighbors to the north bear their teeth.

When Russia stuck their flag on the seabed at the north pole a few years ago, it was front page news in Canada.

This is the most potent weapon for protecting Canadian territory.

This.  As long as we're repeating articles, let's repeat comments, too.

Canada's a full-fledged member of NATO, not just an affiliate protected by memorandum. If one pair of Russian boot prints is found in Canada's UN-recognized snowbanks, Putin could be facing a much larger pack of wolves than he is in Crimea. Is he really that desperate to start the war that Stalin or Khrushchev never had?

It's too late to stop it.  The railway schedules have already been printed.

It's all kinda moot until somebody figures out how to actually get the oil and gas from up there.  We know there is tons of it, just can't get it.

Bring it on, Putin, we'll show you how we play in Canada. We may appear polite on the surface, but get us angry and you better watch out. Just ask the Germans how they felt about us in WWI!

John McCain says we should send small arms and radios to Santa to help him fend off Putin.

That could start a truly...Cold War.

There's Always A Bloody Ghost: Bring it on, Putin, we'll show you how we play in Canada. We may appear polite on the surface, but get us angry and you better watch out. Just ask the Germans how they felt about us in WWI!


At Vimy Ridge in WWI, the Canadians were able to capture the German position after the other allies had failed.  It was such an important battle in Canadian history that we've put the Vimy Memorial on the back of our $20 bill:

An American with a military history experience told me an interpretation of why Canada was successful at Vimy where the others had failed.  He said in WWI, the lower classes fought in the infantry and the higher classes were in artillery (i.e., further back from the front lines.)  When the French and British were fighting the Germans, their artillery would fire on the German infantry, and the German artillery would fire on the Allied infantry.  It wasn't considered good sport for artillery to fire on artillery.

The Canadians came along, unburdened by social graces (basically a bunch of farmers, fishermen and lumberjacks,) and proceeded to fire on the German artillery positions, which gave the infantry a chance to get up the ridge.

Or so it was explained to me...

There is this:
"THE CANADIANS WERE MARKED OUT AS STORM TROOPS; FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WAR THEY WERE BROUGHT IN TO HEAD THE ASSAULT IN ONE GREAT BATTLE AFTER ANOTHER. WHENEVER THE GERMANS FOUND THE CANADIAN CORPS COMING INTO THE LINE THEY PREPARED FOR THE WORST."
--BRITISH PRIME MINISTER LLOYD GEORGE, AFTER THE CAPTURE OF VIMY RIDGE

My grandfather fought at Vimy (thankfully he came home!), and in 2008 I travelled to Vimy to see the memorial. If you haven't been there, you should go, it is stunningly beautiful. The walk to the memorial from the visitor's centre is along a road beside forest that wasn't there in 1917, and there are signs to warn you about all the still unexploded artillery, mines etc. amongst the trees.

Cripes Putin just must want to open a can of whoop ass. He must be looking at that area as a place for his evil volcano lair.
