And Canada, take every joke, and everything said and done as a slight. Your weather doesn't appear on our weather maps because we think less of you.
America is sorry we are a bad neighbor.
We probably did over react to our Harbor being attacked. And perhaps we just a teeny weeny bit over reacted to a couple of Airliners getting flown into a couple buildings.
We really should just laugh at ourselves a bit more and not take things so seriously.
We never should have blown our economy on an arms race in the 80's. I mean really, American History is just a tragic case of "if You Give A Mouse A Cookie"
Canada, you take over.
You just don't get it do you? Canada loves their neighbor to the south and is precisely why we have stood by you for the past 200 years. You are the one that said Canada does not matter, which exposed your illiteracy when it comes to world history, including your own.
As for planes flying into the World Trade Towers, many Canadians died in there as well and we went to war with you in Afghanistan and we are still there fighting and dying.
America was founded on war, which really was actually created because the founding fathers were business men and knew that they could make far more money if not under the yolk of King George and had nothing to do with freedom on the people (look it up). Since the start, your government has fought the British, French, Spanish, Mexicans, Indians, each other, Cubans, Germans, Italians, Russians, Japanese, Hungarians, Bulgarians, Romanians, Vietnamese, Koreans, El Salvador, Somalians, Yugoslavians, Iraqis, Afghanis, and the list goes on and on. The old ways of invading for profit for economic gain are GONE and will only bankrupt your country, as it is already doing. It will take a generation for America to get out of debt, if ever.
Instead of crapping on your "irrelevant neighbor to the north" maybe you could educate yourself and realize your northern neighbor is the best friend that America ever had and will ever have. Canada could also get you off the Middle East narcotic of oil and let them kill each other in their sandbox but your government said NO to the last pipeline from Canada (likely because they are in bed with the Saudis).
While America makes war with everyone in the quest of "serving America and freedom", Canada makes peace and has contributed to more peacekeeping operations than any other member state of the United Nations even given our relatively small size (look it up).
While you're at it, look up the liberation of Holland and the Battle of Vimy Ridge, you might gain some insight.
Canada is only irrelevant to the illiterates that do not know a thing about world history -- especially their very own history.
