We don't want to spend money on our defense. We want to leech off of the US.

You have USA an UK to defend you if you ever needed it, but it would have to be a strong country to take on Canada, Canada have a fantastic military record, they were with Britain from the beginning in both world wars, and that will never be forgotten,Canada also has Australia and new Zealand as allies, along with UK and USA, there is an unbreakable bond, call it the Anglo alliance, or as I, an outsider to anglos,like to call it, 'the special five', it used to be the special six, but Ireland sold out to the eu and they ate now too close to germany and France to be one of the special five, they can no longer be counted on, like the other five can, but even so, when Ireland went bankrupt in 2008, the eu did nothing, Britain was the only country to care enough about Ireland to give them billions of pounds to fix their economy's, so the Irish now know who their real friends are, so maybe the can rejoin our little family and we can change it back to the special six

The Chinese are talking like they think they are going to tale over the world, what a joke, imagine how powerfull we could be if there was a real economic,militaristic union of all the Anglo nations, imagine how strong that would be, the combined nations of USA, UK, Canada, Australia, new Zealand. Just the military strength and capability of USA and UK would be unmatched by any other nation, but with can,aus,new Zealand and it would be epic, the combined populations of our countries would be huge, USA and UK allready dominate the worlds media and are world dominant in modern culture, music, movies, television, sports, books, video games, models, famous people, basically UK and USA have all the soft power and influence in the world, then you've got the huge natural resources of each country, particularly Canada and the new huge shale oil/gas reserves in England, then there's the combined landmass of all the special five countries, and the very helpfull fact that they are strategically located in several different continents, plus the combined international political presence of the five nations, and that two of the five are also the two top un and NATO members, USA and UK, then all the combined scientific and technological and biomedical and weapons industries and capabilities of the special five nations. The combined strength of all the aspects of all our five countries combined, would be a superpower beyond rival, no one found challenge the five, if we act as one, we would be truelly great, and China can cry themselves ro sleep at never getting to gain power, so I say, let the anglos unite, the special five rise up together, and the world will forever belong to the anglos, god bless the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, new Zealand, and pending desicion, maybe Ireland too, the world is ours

Please explain how;
Canada fought in real wars from the start, and didnt profiteer.
Canadians developed the most advanced fighter/bomber with M2 in the 50's.
Canadians orbited the first mercury launch, then Gemini, and Apollo Moon landing! Plus it was Canadian/Europeans that saved the crew of Apollo 13.

The only reason the USers were in the dominate position was Europe in shambles...during the mid 4 decade...take candy...Russia beat Germany.

What? The reason America was in the dominant position after WW2 was for the same reason Yamamoto didn't want to attack the US. The industrial potential. It already had some pretty decent industrial muscle before the war, but it was really only taking advantage of a fraction of its real potential.

As for Russia beating Germany, I guess the Canadians, Americans and British that were on the continent were just there on manoeuvers?

Who cares about some outdated fighter plane you people made? Canadians are like an old has-been high school football player who wants to relive it every day for the rest of their life. What is Canada achieving today? SFA...
