TRUDEAU DEFIES TRUMP AT NATO SUMMIT: CANADA REFUSES TO INCREASE DEFENSE SPENDING

BY DAVID BRENNAN ON 7/11/18 AT 6:50 AM

New figures show that Canadian military spending will be cut significantly, even as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau prepares to face President Donald Trump’s demands for higher NATO military spending at the alliance's summit in Brussels.

According to the CBC, Canada will spend 1.23 percent of its GDP on defense in 2018, down from 1.36 percent last year. This is far below the 2 percent target set for NATO members, which has been a particular source of irritation for the American president.

Canadian National Defence spokesman Daniel Le Bouthillier said the drop in investment was largely because of one-off payments, such as a retroactive pay increase for service members and a $1.3 billion payment to the fund that pays servicemembers' pensions.

The World's Most Expensive Cities for a Cup of Coffee

In a statement reported by the CBC, Le Bouthillier said, “Canada continues to place a premium on tangible operational contributions as well as on demonstrating a commitment and capacity to deploy and sustain personnel in support of the NATO alliance.”

Meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg Wednesday morning, Trump set the tone for what is expected to be one of the most acrimonious conferences in NATO’s 69-year history. The president repeatedly brought up one of his favorite NATO talking points, that the U.S. pays an “unfair” amount toward the defense of Europe. Trump warned Stoltenberg, “We’re not going to put up with it, we can't put up with it,” demanding that other states step up military spending.

Few NATO nations have met the 2 percent pledge since the fall of the Soviet Union almost 30 years ago, and while the alliance has now committed to meeting the target, it will take time for them to deliver. Trump, meanwhile, said he expects the change "immediately."

Germany was the first nation this week that Trump criticized publicly, but it is unlikely to be the last.Trump and Trudeau head to Brussels not long after a public spat that followed the G-7 meeting in Canada last month. Trump’s proposed tariffs were the subject of that disagreement. Trudeau had previously called the president’s protectionism “unaccapetable,” and after the G-7 meeting warned that Canada “will not be pushed around.”

Trump then refused to back the G-7 joint statement, and took to Twitter to brand Trudeau as “dishonest and weak.” As the war of words escalated, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said there was “a special place in hell” for any leader who “engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door.”

Relations between the leaders were already shaky thanks to Trump’s repeated attacks on NAFTA—another sign of his apparent distrust of any transnational organization, be it NATO, the European Union or even the World Trade Organization. With all, Trump believes the U.S. is getting “ripped off” in an unfair marketplace. The president has repeatedly said the U.S. will no longer be the “world’s piggy bank.”

NATO leaders in Brussels this week likely fear a repeat of Trump's G-7 performance. A fractured summit would play directly into the hands of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who Trump meets next week in Helsinki.

These fucks know since they are our frail step brother who live next door that we’d defend them if someone fucks with them.

Would Canada be worth invading? They have a ton of natural resources right?

They would surrender within a day and the occupation would be peaceful. Hard to see how we wouldn't come out ahead.

To be fair,

New policy: Bus all illegals who are rounded up by ICE up to a bunch of different, randomly selected and every-changing locations 100 feet from the Canadian border, and drop them off with very clear instructions that "whatever they do, they must immediately leave American soil or face imprisonment." Canada clearly doesn't care about the security and stability of its state sovereignty--plus diverthity is our thrength!--so they shouldn't have any problems with this.
