Says the idiot whose country's industrial base has pretty much set up shop in China. Christ, America can't even manufacture an iPhone anymore.
But hey, since you're so game to have us sell our oil to the Chinese, why don't you ban Canadian imports of thorium and uranium too. Then we can sell those to the Chinese as well. Although I'm not sure where you'd get those materials anymore since we are your ONLY supplier.

Then again, maybe you're one of those fucked in the head Americans that prefers to see your men in uniform get killed defending some other country's oil deposits. Number of US soldiers killed to date protecting/defending Canadian oil: 0
How many filled body bags have come back to the US from the Mid-East over the last several decades?
