The next country the US should invade.....
is Norway.

There are many advantages to invading Norway.

They have that North Sea oil.

They are undoubtedly hiding WMD in all those fjords. (Sweden probably is too, but they don't have the North Sea oil. One country at a time.)

Most of them speak English, so there won't be a language problem.

Most are Lutheran, so you won't have different religious factions fighting over control of the new regime.

Many Americans' ancestors came from Norway, especially people from MN and the Dakotas. Platoons of servicepeople from those states could be sent to occupy Norway. They could look up their distant cousins while they're over there.

I really can't think of any disadvantages of invading Norway.

1. Canada, eh?
Actually, we shouldn't invade Canada. They should just annex Western Washington.

2. No Way...
If they take Washington, then they have to take Wisconsin, too.

If the Canadians invade, I'll give it up like Paris Hilton after four Long Island Iced Teas.

7. Only after they get rid of Stevie Wonderbread
Actually I'd prefer the Cascadia approach, but no annexation into Canada is advised as long as they have their own Chimp wannabe in power.



Yeah, I know the Canadian parliamentary system prevents him from doing much damage, but my theory is that Canada is one staged "terra attack" away from going down the same toilet the US has for the last 7 years.

3. Switzerland
I could use some good chocolate.

And since everybody there is part of the national militia, it would take an extensive occupation to get all the defenders of their home err, insurgents under control

11. Oh, well, they all went to Greenland and Iceland. Present-day
Norwegians aren't descended from them.
