    How can we NOT be discussing Canada - this country's biggest threat 200 years ago (yes, we were in a hot war with them exactly then) and still a HUGE pest and botheration (to put it diplomatically) today.

        and maybe even start taking efforts to preemptively head off such problems, you know by initiative such as this one (strangely enough proposed by George W himself):

        Bush Vows To Remove Toxic Petroleum From National Parks:

        "Places like Yellowstone and Yosemite were once pure, unspoiled wilderness," Bush said at a White House press conference. "But over the course of the past 10 million years, we have allowed them to become polluted with toxic fossil-fuel deposits, turning a blind eye to the steady build-up of vast quantities of dangerous pollutants. It's time to end this terrible neglect."
        But like many Bush initiatives, at least the good ones,  this one never really got off the ground and milestones such as this have long faded into distant memory:
        Under the Bush plan, 7.2 billion tons of toxic petroleum would be removed by the target date of January 2004. Unlike other federal environmental clean-up initiatives, administration officials say the plan would pay for itself, offsetting costs through the sale of petroleum byproducts produced as a result of the clean-up process.

        The clean-up, EPA chief Christine Todd Whitman said, may even prove profitable, a prospect that has attracted the participation of private industry. Already, many U.S. companies have expressed interest in lending assistance, and it is hoped that these companies will carry out much, or perhaps all, of the clean-up effort.
