A little known fact. The first war the US ‘lost’ was not Vietnam. Canada kicked the crap out of the US in 1812, taking territory right up to and including Washington D.C. where ‘we’ torched the White House itself, necessitating a white wash, and hence its new name, “The White House”. Of course the US re-established rational and defensible borders with Canada along the St. Laurence. However after Obama’s speech, I think perhaps Canadians should lobby the Harper Government to demand that the US go back to it’s 1812 borders and let Canada have control over Washington again. Tundra Tabloids makes a similar point about Mexico. How about it Obama? Since it is all just a matter of cartography right?
The White House might make a nice residence for the leader of the opposition after all.
