“A top general has told Canadian MPs they cannot count on US support if North Korea launches a nuclear attack on their country.”
See US policy is ‘not to defend Canada’ in any N Korea attackISTR that USA and others joined with Canada in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization which had the stated purpose to defend any and all members against attack. If it’s indeed true that USA is no longer willing to do that, perhaps it’s time Canada went nuclear too. Canadians helped USA build its first bombs in the Manhattan project. One Canadian from my University of Manitoba physics department died in the process when they were “tickling the tail” of the critical-mass tiger. My uncle was among those holding a flank during the Battle of the Bulge in WWII. Canada opened its airports, hotels and homes to USAians stranded in the air when the USAian airspace was shut down in 9/11. Canadians helped in Afghanistan despite USA occasionally bombing them with “friendly fire”. How soon USAians forget.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
