>mfw some inane racialist tries to stand in the way of your manifest destiny
Fuck you OP! We should have more! We almost fought a war with the US over Maine!
We almost fought each other over everything.
Your equivalent, although you guys called this off by the time War Plan Red began after you realized that to actively fight us would simply be a waste of Canadian lives: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defence_Scheme_No._1
Britain wasn't paying their World War I denbts in a timely manner, and were trying to stunt the size of our navy relative to theirs at disarmament conferences. This moved the idea of the US fighting all of the British empire from "impossible" to "theoretically possible," which is what started the war planning.
Britain's plan was to just let Canada die, with only nominal support from the rest of the empire. The US plan in that case, then, would be to invade Canada completely and then stick the nation on the fast track towards annexation. It was the only way to be absolutely sure that you fuckers wouldn't give British empire forces a safe haven for staging a land invasion of us.
Between the Mexican-American War's pussy for a peace negotiator denying us pic related, War Plan Red never taking place, and Denmark refusing on two different occasions to sell Greenland to us even though the place is nothing but a resource drain on them, the US by right should have been a gargantuan northern North American fortress by the time World War II rolled around.
That's the difference between us and previous powers though, anon. We are good. We don't just try to grab everyone and everything... we have some respect for others...
We are the good guys and everyone else is bad.
LOL U MAD HONDURRRASS
Tell them to "pay denbts" one more time and look what will happen when Golden Dawn gets power.
>the only "civilized" country in sudamerica is an ex-BR colony
It'd be a Grade-A place to place our missile silos and more airbases, both of which would give us better power projection over Europe an a new place to keep Russia at bay. We'd also potentially inherit Denmark's claim on the north pole. We could also find a way to populate it better than Denmark ever could.
You guys were a massive money sink for Denmark, and insofar as anyone can tell it seems like nationalism was the only reason they didn't accept our $100,000,000 offer to buy your clay, similar to the $25,000,000 offer they DID accept to give the US what is now the US Virgin Islands.
>There can now be little doubt that the American claim was justified by the intentions of the commissioners of 1783. It is morally certain that the intention then was to re-enact the boundary line of the Proclamation of 1763, and that the British argument based on the difference between the Bay of Fundy and the Atlantic Ocean was simply an ingenious quibble. Unfortunately, the Treaty of 1783 was so badly worded that it could not be translated into a practical topographical boundary. The British case was not a sound one, and a decision based solely upon justice would, in all probability, have given Maine more than was ultimately received.
Canadians are ingenious thieves. There is a similar conclusion about the Alaskan pan-handle dispute. Canadians have poor claims, get more than they should thanks to Brits, and then have the nerve to fucking complain.
Sweet, when can we expect official Greenland independence so a referendum can be held?
Greenland got a small taste of US control during World War II, and it was a beautiful thing.
If autists made countries the world would be more interesting.

You, I like you.

We had a special place for you in our hearts right from the beginning, Canada. :3
