The U.S. Plan to Invade Canada: War Plan Red

The U.S. Plan to Invade Canada: War Plan Red | Als Return to Education | Scoop.it
A time-honored tradition in the U.S. military, contingency plans have been drawn up for the defense against, and invasion of, most major military powers. In fact, in response to recent events on the Korean peninsula, the U.S.
Al Picozzi's insight:

And you all thought that the US/Canadian border was going to be safe...well it is...now.  Seems that both sides made plans to invade each other in the 1920s.  Seems that there are contingency plans for everything.  With the relations that we see today, its had to believe that such plans are even necessary...however don't forgot your history.  The US was invaded from Canada by the British during the revolution and we also invaded Canada in both the Revoultion and the War of 1812.  Check out this little article for a brief War of 1812 history http://forgottenhistory.blogspot.com/2007/05/united-states-invades-canada.html ; So imagine now if we did not enjoy what is considered the longest undefended border on the planet??  What would life be like along an unfriendly border that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific and the long Alaskan/Canadian border??  Nice to live next to a counrty and not have the North Korea/Sout Korea mentality.
