Real Canadian Bacon, or War Plan Red
Question: Does the US need to dominate the world?
In the believe it or not category, the US planned for an invasion of Canada prepared at the US Army War College, G-2 intelligence division, and submitted on December 18, 1935.
“This is the most recent declassified invasion plan available from the US archival sources. The military planning context of this document is War Plan Red, which was approved in May 1930 by the Secretary of War and the Secretary of Navy. In 1934, War Plan Red was amended to authorize the immediate first use of poison gas against Canadians and to use strategic bombing to destroy Halifax if it could not be captured.
In February 1935, the War Department arranged a Congressional appropriation of $57 million dollars to build three border air bases for the purposes of pre-emptive surprise attacks on Canadian air fields. The base in the Great Lakes region was to be camouflaged as a civilian airport and was to “be capable of dominating the industrial heart of Canada, the Ontario Peninsula”. This testimony was to have been secret but was published by mistake.
In August 1935, the US held its largest peacetime military manoeuvres in history, with 36,000 troops converging at the Canadian border south of Ottawa, and another 15,000 held in reserve in Pennsylvania. The war game scenario was a US motorized invasion of Canada, with the defending forces initially repulsing the invading Blue forces, but eventually to lose “outnumbered and outgunned” when Blue reinforcements arrive.”
And to think at the time everybody was worried about Nazis aggression! Recall FDR’s Infamy Speech - “Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”
So what would they call it now - War Plan Canukistan perhaps? I call it H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y !
