With all due respect , we can rest assured that the plans exists . Thats what governments do , they plan possible scenarios . Just because we on the bottom floor dont hear about it , means nothing , we are not supposed to . Here is a historical example you will never read about in a history class . In the late 1930’s , with tensions rising in Europe , The US was a neutral country , we knew that war was most likely to break out . We didnt know what side we were going to take in the conflict if it did break out . We did a study and had a plan in place , about the invasion of Canada , in case we entered the war on GERMANY’S side . You wont here about that , for obvious reasons , but it did exist . As far as container ships filled with troops coming over ? there is a VIDEO GAME , called World in Conflict , Soviet Assault . It has Soviets invading through Seattle by doing just that . Now given that a gaming industry designer came up with that scenario for a product , do you not think that somebody in the Pentagon has not also have thought about that ? Forget the idiot in charge in the oval office and his cronies , thats what those guys do , they are not entirely incompetent . Another aspect that we are not thinking about , is this , and one of the reasons why anybody that went into Russia failed . Say an invasion did take place ? ok , its not just us , Canada for its own well being , would not sit by on the side lines . No jokes about the Canadian armed forces , the point is ………………look at the land area one would have to try to occupy between both of us , either by itself is a challenge , the saying , ” taking a place is easy , keeping it is the hard part ” is especially true . Look at the problems the Russians had in Afghanistan , and the problems we have there and Iraq , not big places , but we cant secure it . Now take the size of the US and Canada ………you see where the problem is , then throw in easily available arms to its citizens to the mix . Partizans suck , for an occupying army . Soviet partizans created such a nuisance for the germans , blowing up things , that it prevented needed troops and equipment from reaching the battle of Kursk . THe French resistance was equally as much of a pain . I think Putin is looking for ways he can screw us up the most , if things got bad . I dont think he is idiot enough to contemplate invasion ……………….The Chinese on the other hand , are just nuts enough to contemplate it .
