    Uhh. He was talking about Canada, not Britain? And yeah I wouldn't call Britain our greatest ally, but Canada wouldn't be. That title easily goes to France.

    It's just political soundbites. Don't read too deeply into it.

    Uhh. Yeah?

    I know. Just made me laugh how easily they'll give out such compliments.

    I wonder how many states he "loved" in the election campaign.

    What?

    Britain is:

    The fifth or sixth largest economy in the world;
    Part of the Commonwealth, G8, EU, UN Security Council;
    Has one of the best equipped and trained Armed Forces in the world;
    Historically linked to America.

    Obama isn't going to abandon Britain, he'd be a fool to.

    Still, good to see America and Canada geting along. I remember when the Yanks tried to invade the Canadians in 1812, but we British weren't having it, and we successfully repelled the invasion.

    Them were the days...

    Oh yeah, and Obama has English blood in him.

    To be fair, "you" were trying to invade their territory as well, and you were blocking their trade with France.

    How ironic that this news comes to light on the day of this threads creation.

    umm... the us never invaded canada. Canada came in 1867, the war ladted 1812-1814. they tried to bloody britains nose after the brits were pirating american ships. only problem came when the upper & lower were able to (with native help) repel the invasion. had not britain returned michigan to the us following the treatise, the upper and lower would have gained land, instead of losing land. We have to remember than the brits took michigan, detroit, all of lake erie, all the way down to washington. ive learned a lot abou that war. ive seen the plains of most of the major/minor battles. i love minutes from queenston, where the entire war turned against the US.
