Canada Getting A Free Ride? Nothing New.

Canada has decided not to help with the new missile defence system that is being installed by the US. Now the help they would have provided is problematic. I suppose they would have installed detection stations, or the like. But actually they already have detection hardware in place, as a part of the mutual defence situation that has existed with NATO and the US. The news that Canada will bolster its border security is, to me actually more important than any help regarding incoming missiles. The infrastructure is already in place, to a large extent. So the US can probably expect help in the future, in detecting potential targets. In the mean time, Canada is getting a free ride. Just like ever since World War 2. They have the smallest armed forces compared to land mass of their country than any country in the world. Thanks to the USA.

I'll be back
