Correction. Canada burned down the US White House and took Detroit city on a threat without firing a shot the US drew up the peace treaty. Mexico army caused problems in the southern states but where repelled, Pearl Harbour was undoubtably an attack on American soil, September 11 is just as equivalent.<quoted text>
Actually USA didn`t believe USSR really had nukes there.
It had removed it`s missiles from Turkey and Cuba had been protected from USA though.
After USSR had invented miissiles which were able to get to USSR right from Russia, Yanks shited their pants daily.
Wasn`t it a good business to build nuclear shelters in USA?
I never heard that Soviet citizens wasted their money to build private nuclear shelters.
Yanks are clearly sneaky people.
This is because USA never had any war on it`s territory.
Europeans had a lot of wars in their countries while Yanks were hiding behind the ocean like sneaky cowards they are.
( hiding behind an ocean ? WTF? Russia invades Georgia who shows up with the ever ready can of kick ass, oh ya that's right the 6 th fleet, no Mach for Russian forces at sea or on the ground in Georgia plus with war footings already in play in nearby Afghanistan and Iraq I see why Russia with drew their attack forces and left a security force behind. In chess it's called check.
