8. Toronto, I fear.
Edited on Thu Mar-11-04 10:31 PM by Minstrel Boy
It doesn't matter that Canada didn't join the Iraq misadventure. Whether you accept the official story on Al Qaeda or believe it to be the militant wing of the Carlyle Group, Canada's on the list. A "bin Laden" tape of last year named Canada (prompting a lot of "didn't he get the memo?" reactions from Canadians who thought staying out of Iraq would mean we'd bought protection). Canada is also a "soft target," and Middle America's closest - ie, whitest - neighbour. News of carnage in Canada would be more likely to strike fear into Americans than reports of similar attacks in Europe and Asia.

Canada has an election too, likely late Spring. What better time to stampede voters towards the right, to teach them the hard lesson of the War on Terra, to get them to sign on to SDI, to learn the cost of defying the United States? To those ends, I think US officials could withold intelligence that would prevent a devastating attack in order to further a geopolitical objective.
