  • llama66: Thank You every Canadian Government that played a role in gutting our military. You 've made it easy for foreign powers to take our territory, and to disregard our claims. Time to reinvest in a 3 ocean Navy.
  • DrCaleb: Hahahahahaha!

    Like the U.S. Claims to the Mississippi River are 'illegitimate'. :lol:

    I hate that we've gutted our Navy too, but this really has nothing to do with that. The US refuses to acknowledge any nation's rights in narrow waterways (Strait of Hormuz, Malacca Straits, Taiwan Strait, etc.) because they believe they should have the right to sail anywhere they want.

    The joke is on them though, because as their power fades and China eclipses them, they'll wish they had supported Canada's claim.

    ^^ Sabre rattling doesn't change international law. Russias' belligerent occupation of Crimea isn't changed because Russia has more warships than Ukraine. Ukraine's territorial boundaries are still recognized.

    The Northwest Passage doesn't suddenly fall outside the territorial boundaries of Canada just because Pompeo thinks it should.
  • Sunnyways: To call it illegitimate and to speak of a feud is gratuitously offensive to an ally and neighbour.
