I am curious about the opinion of forumers here about the downsliding friendship between Canadians and Americans.

The friendship between many Canadians and Americans are declining. Many Americans are angry or not happy with Ottawa's decision to not join the war with the US. Back in Sep 11, 2001, Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien said Canada will stand shoulder to shoulder with the US. Now, the US is at war with Iraq, and Ottawa is not supporting by sending troops. Last night, I saw the news about a American business not selling a printer to a Canadian bidder on Ebay, eventhough he won the bid due to the lack of support from the Canadian government. This is surely a sign of deteriorating friendship. I know there are many Canadians that support the US led war against Iraq and they would be posting an ad in USA Today about their support. Trade deals are cancelled too. Also, the Americans did not call the companies that helped fight the oil fires in Iraq back in 1991.

Many of these evidences are showing that Americans and Canadians are becoming less friendly with each other. This can lead to less economic developments in both country, which many people are surely not going to like. This is my opinion.

Now, I would like to hear about yours. Is the friendship between Canadians and Americans deteriorating? Also, would the effect last forever or the people might eventually forget about this? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I'm sure that after the war, the ties between the U.S. and Canada will be restrengthened.

Many Americans don't agree with the war. Most Canadians don't agree with the war. A nation should listen to its peoples first, then its allies. Chrtien has made a wise choice by not letting Canada become part of the war.

Cellucci, the U.S. ambassador to Canada said that many Americans were disappointed, but he also said that the U.S. will be there if Canada was threatened. I have yet to see how Iraq is a threat to the U.S.

OMG, that is sick! Not selling somebody a printer, because he's Canadian? That's what is generally called "racism," "chauvinism," and other such terms.

I think Canada is right in not sending troups to support the Us...my opinion but....
I think though that after the War the friendship will probabaly resume I mean there is only 3 North American Countries...Mexico hated the Us but now the 2 are on good terms....

Gosh and I thought my German ancestors were notorious for holding a grudge........


I don't think that the Canadian-US friendship will fall apart because of this. I know somebody already said it, but many Americans are against the war and Canadians have a right to be too. I don't think Bush is stupid enough to mess with the Canadian-US friendship, no matter how anti-war they may be. After it's over and Bush is out of office (even if it's another 4 years, who knows) Canada will still be on good terms with the US.


Does anyone know how Mexico stands on Bush's war?

Well our country doesn't have any true weapons, all we have is troops. If Canada and US went to war then I'd move back to the Phillipines.
I didn't know Canada had troops tho, I thought it was an option to join the American Navy or army.

ThaBallistix, that was an insult towards Canadians. That includes your fellow forumers such as Darkmaster, Swp ...etc. I hope you apologize for what you said.

uhh I agree with Ge and railroad you should be banned. Thats not just a predigist comment but its insulting and totally against the code of conduct. There are a least 5 (most likely more) Canadian forumers in AOKH, as railroad said. I hope your banned for a long time....someone should probabaly tell a mod...would it be correct to post a new topic or...?
EDIT: I gave Cherub Aro an email....

Well, I happen to be a member of the Canadian Forces. I used to be infantry but I went Air Force recently. I respect very much much the American military. We, Canadians however, have the most advanced biochemical warfare outfits and the most advanced Navy in the world. I know its hard to believe but it is true. We just dont have alot of it.

Uh, sorry, I meant it as sarcastic. You know, I'm American, and this is a thread about USA and Canadian friendships deteriorating...I don't know, I guess it didn't come out right.

Well, TheBallistix, I forgive you. Just, if you see that you have written something that appears to be even remotely offensive, make sure you edit it right away .
Anyway, I'm sure that Canada will remain friends with the US.
