Can't we just strap him to a drone and sneak him across the border?

Of course we refuse to take him back, just look at him.

Now that he's outside the border we should revoke his passport like the fools who go to fight for ISIL so he can't actually come back.

Why do you think we sent Justin to the States? We've been on the attack for years now with Justin reeking havoc and destruction throughout the US.

He's right. Those insidious bastards started with Paul Anka and Leonard Cohen. Then it was Neal Young and Joanie Mitchell. Then the real Horrors began with Celine Dion, Bryan Adams and Avril Lavinge. Now they've unleashed that Bieber puke.

And I don't want a Nickleback, Thank You...

It'll be tough to surprise them since they already have access to the war room. They not only can see the big board but they control the big board.

That being said, conflict is based on power and/or access to resources. So, usually somebody wants something somebody else has. Not sure how the dynamic changes based on having something we don't want and we want someone else to take it back.

Thank you for the Cowboy Junkies attack. Its still in progress, we're doing our best to contain it, but they might have to assault us with a few more albums before we even consider a truce. And they're even using our own 'weapons' against us; oh, the horror!

Well, we do want their oil... isn't that one of our main reasons for war... oil is somehow involved. Not so much "drill baby drill" as it is "shoot baby shoot." Of course we always claim "nation building" and "humanitarian reasons," right?

The last movie to be released starring John Candy. It was one of two released after his death.

Why would anyone want to attack Canadians? We're such a peaceful, and loving country. We're the land of maple syrup and beavertails ... Canadian bacon and poutine. And if that's not enough reason not to attack us, keep in mind that we have nuclear capabilities Sure, it's only nuclear isotopes used for medical purposes right now ... but I'm sure it could easily be converted into weapon-grade material. Just keep all that in mind ... and again, we have zero resources in this wasteland ... nada.

The Maryland number plates celebrate the war of 1812 - now why would they draw attention to a war that we won?

I hear Canada has sources of high grade ice. Stuff that makes ordinary ice seem like ordinary ice.

Start by poking holes in their rowboats and canoes, stop selling them hunting ammo and horseshoes, then blast Bieber music over the border and we will not need to fire a single shot. But, during negotions, we will agree to send Beiber to an unnamed country in trade for them learning how to say been, about and Mazda...
