    I’m watching a CBC newscast where they are saying that they are protected from terrorism because they are the gateway to the United States. This means that since they are a “Gateway” the terrorists would never attack Canada thus shutting the northern door on the United States. My goodness with friends like this who needs enemies?

    LOL - don't show this post to the Canadian's who post in USMB - many of them don't want to admit "certain issues"... :)

    Perhaps we have the war on terror wrong. We need to attack a few so called Allies to get them on our side. Machiavelli was right, "It is better to be feared than loved". :slap:

    All of Canada (or even all of the CBC) feel this way because of one newscast? Using that logic, I could say that watching an Al Franken interview proves that the US is totally left wing. I just went to the CBC website and pulled these 2 stories that show just the opposite, that Canada does not feel safe because "we are the gateway":

    Good point. One newscast doesn't summarize the feelings of an entire nation. However it is still a little upsetting that this kind of thinking is popular enough to be put on a national newscast.

    It was a segment on "The National". I don't know the talking heads by name.
