Trump administration won't station US troops near Canadian border

Source: Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The Trump administration, in the face of strong opposition from Canada, has abandoned its plans to station U.S. troops near the Canadian border.

"We have heard this is not something they're continuing to pursue, but we will of course continue to engage with the American administration as new situations come up and as things develop," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told an Ottawa new conference outside the Rideau Cottage, where he is in self-isolation.

The Prime Minister has been diplomatic in his language, conscious of not offending President Trump. Deputy PM Chrystia Freeland was blunt last week, saying, "We have made that opposition very very clear to our American counterparts and we will continue to do so."

The U.S. and Canada have the world's longest undefended land border, stretching from Point Roberts in Washington to Campobello Island in New Brunswick. The border continues in the north, crossed by residents who walk to a bar in Hyder, Alaska, and the 100,000-plus animals of the Porcupine Caribou herd whose migration route crosses two Canadian national parks and America's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

1. Those pesky canucks would pull toques over the eyes of the troops & swoop in to gooble up Chik-Fil-A


... to gobble up Chick-Fil-A. Yeah, that's the reason for tRump's to put troops there. Must be the fatal attraction that would overcome leaving behind free health care in order to get infected.

2. Someone convinced him that the idea is moronic and will look trifling to even his fans

Meanwhile Canada's giving out $2,000CAD a month to anyone who needs it for four months, period, end of story. The Candians are going to have to station troops to keep Americans out.

3. The truth is

that he couldn't find a single Border Patrol agent that would agree to going up to the northern border.

It is really really cold, desolate and there is no one trying to come into the US from that direction.

The only thing that would make sense is using a northern border patrol to try to keep Americans in the U.S.
I have many friends that have already fled to Mexico, Canada, and other foreign countries.......

The FBI has already documented for two years that an abnormal and increasing number of the 1%ers are moving to Dubai and other areas near there. You have seen all those massive skyscraper hotels and residential islands being built over there. They are all luxury units. Who do you think they are building them for???????? They can live with peace and security, not care a wit about what is going on in America, vacation in Europe if the Virus ever gets controlled and live out their lives in the luxury and opulence that they feel is their standing in life.......

I'm sure this group at the top has thought about engineering a take over of Cuba, but maybe thought that it wasn't worth what it would cost and the time it would take......It would make a great luxury island for the uber wealthy, don't you think???

12. What happened, a shred of sanity sank in for once?

this was a totally idiotic stupid idea to begin with and I'm so glad it's been dropped. We need our military for real purposes, to sve lives and provide logistical help, but assmsouth refuses to do anything good for the American people.
