It’s still debated who’s fault the War of 1812 is. We gave weapons to Tecumseh, so you send foragers into Rupert’s Land and Oregon Country, and then we conscripted US sailors with former British citizenship into the Royal Navy, then all the US hawks say the revolution isn’t finished until all North America is “liberated”, we say fuck off, so you declare war and invade us. We kick your ass, invade you back, burn down the White House, get bogged down and eventually leave to kick Napoleon’s ass at Waterloo.
1812 was 1776 that didn't just end at Yorktown. The Crown wasn't happy US merchant sailors were running the blockade at the Straight of Gibralter and supplying Napoleon with black powder, shot, and hemp for sail cloth at very inflated prices. But the Channel and Bay of Biscay couldn't be breached so what's a poor smuggler to do. B) But hey the French helped us win the colonies freedom, so the least thing we could do was repay the favor.

UH...hello, BOYS. It's astonishing that any of you can be part of the military or even remember historical PARTS of the military since NONE OF YOU can even STAY ON TOPIC. The TOPIC is women in combat.
As I have stated in several post I support women being in combat if they volunteer, and they are prepared physically and mentally for combat.

Hell I don't want men in combat that are not prepared..

Remember the first forces sent to Korea.. they were not prepared for combat and it did not end well for them..

We conservatives are cleaning up the Obama VA that would put requests for treatment by or veterans in DRAWERS and never processing them. Then giving BONUSES to the VA directors that ran this FUBAR.

Thank GOD we elected trump that is cleaning up this mess that Obama allowed to continue, costing 300,000 veterans their lives while WAITING for care.

The VA was a mess long before Obama got there.

And it wasn't Obama that created all of those new customers with two wars he didn't bother paying for.

What makes you think Bush was going to Give more funding to the VA. And lets not forget that he had a Republican majority in Congress that were more concerned with their $2 trillion tax cut for the filthy rich while starting two wars at the same time.

So in walks Obama with the economy on full meltdowm 750,000 jobs a month being lost, with two wars going full blast on the company credit card every day, but it was Obama costing 300,000 veterans their lives?

The veterans don't need the same failures that made the mess claiming they're going to clean up anything.

Considering the position you put them in Obama did a damn good job cleaning up your mess, and handed the current grifter in Chief a country with a recovered economy, and one less war. And what is the first thing he does with the same Republican Congress? Passes another $2 trillion tax cut for the filthy rich, and deregulates the same banks that crashed the economy 10 years ago.

So where is the money for the VA that he promised?

Oh that's right, there is none, their big plan is to start privatizing the system the veterans don't want privatized, which puts them in the position of having to seek treatment at emergency rooms, to free up money for those tax cuts.

You're a real piece of work pal.

He's a racist prick. Full stop.

The fact that Obama is light years more intelligent than 99% of the dumb ass hillbillies that inhabit that state he resides in combined, is just not something his wee little brain can comprehend. But the big political fight going on there right now, is the evangelicals fighting to keep child marriage legal.

So....

We did, and we burned down your White House. ;)

You should read “The Tragedy it Great Power Politics” by John Mearsheimer. In it he explains how countries have and always will project power onto others as well as seek to build up their own power, both because it can only do good things for their security and because it is often morally right (for example, stopping the aggressive acts of one or several groups).
Canada did not become a dominion until July 1 1867. The invasion of the US and the burning of the White House were executed by British Army regulars. The only thing that you as a "Canadian" can truthfully claim is that the colonists in what is now Canada participated by having local militias available to help the Britiish Army to REPEL our invasions.

We call it the Second Amendment.

@Marus & locke

Locke clearly over-reached for a straw-man since he is unable to provide an actual instance in which an invasion attempt was visited upon the US

Right, so by that logic American history doesn’t start until 1783 then right?

Those thousands of Canadian militiamen, just as they had in 1775, were extremely influential in defeating the Americans who tried to invade our land.

As for those British regulars, many had lived in Canada or been stationed there their whole lives. The same goes for their commanders. You do understand that there were several units of regulars made up of people from what is now Canada right? Not all of them joined the militia, many joined the British Army and Royal Navy.
