I'm doing a headdesk at Scott Reid's comment at the end.

Yes, of course it was a tongue in cheek comment. Just like how Harper says the old speeches with him praising far right policies were him joking around. I'm sure that his calls for Canada to support the invasion of Iraq back when he was in opposition were just tongue in cheek too.

(Seriously, the Conservative Party in general seems to be pretty good at drawing attention away from its member's pasts.)

Everyone knows that Canada's Conservatives are jokes.

AN ALBERTAN FOR PM!?

As in, there were 3 in 20-odd PMs from Alberta.

Harper, Joe Clark, and RB Bennett.

Joe Clark's PMship laster 9 months. Shortest in Canada... no wait, 2nd shortest. Arthur Meighen beat him (3 months).

Bennett is excusable - the Great Depression.

Harper... is another story.

*Inserts Hetalia's version of Canada and USA*

In my impression, Canada has always been contented to manage its own affairs, but come barking up their tree, and they will tear you a new one. (Those who fought them in WWII can attest to their combat skills.)

I thought ANZAC was stronger. Changi records attest that in comparison to all Commonwealth POWs, Australians, New Zealanders and Indians survived the longest, in the largest numbers and by %age.

Well, look at how the Canadians fight at the beaches of Juno. Now, that is something.

They really need that skill as our PM choose thoses around him based to their loyalty rather than their competence.

Actually, I doubt you can get roubles in Malaysia too. Their currency seem to be only exchangable in Europe or the Western states like Australia.

On a side note, grab your Euros while they're cheap. It's almost as cheap as the lowest point of the Euro this year: 58eurocents to the SGD.
Since damn IBFX wouldn't show me the damn EUR/SGD chart, I can't draw my damn lines to chart the damn price action. Right now it is SGD$1 = EUR$0.58, and it just peaked on Nov 30 and now it is undergoing a correction.

I seriously think there is going to be a consolidation for the next few months, followed by a drop.

So I guess it's true, the rouble really is going mad.
Not quite so lol. The reds (China and Russia) decided to remove their peg to the USD and trade directly through SEA with the rouble and yuan.

Though I wonder how the rest of SEA is going to accept it - the valuation to the local dollars (using SGD and MYR as references) are already ridiculous.

Are you sure it isn't the former USSR states that are endangered by a resurgent Russia (refer to Georgia)?
Probably the Poles and the Fins. However, I think Georgia got what they deserved (or at least the President did), since they thought having the backing of US allows them to oppose Russia. The military conflict was uncalled for in the first place.

Defensive pan-nationalism.
A defensive union is obviously fine but weren't you saying something about reclaiming Manchuria?

I think that China would welcome a unified Korea, because it would bring more economic benefits. According to the stuff provided by Wikileaks the Chinese have no issue with North Korea collapsing and would even take in some refugees.
But if China didn't agree to reunification and tried to occupy a collapsed DPRK for itself, no one could do anything to get that land back. However China would still lose because this imperialistic action of taking over NK would lead to strained relations with everyone else in Asia and very bad relations with the ROK.

I think she means the old Three Kingdoms era Korea. Goguryeo specifically around the year 500.

Unless she means the Japanese controlled Manchu State from the 1930s.

I was saying a reunified nuclear Korea would most likely do something about reclaiming Manchuria.

Just checking. So many things have been taking out of context over the past several years, you can never be too sure.

And even though Canada's army is quite a bit smaller than the U.S.', I would never make the mistake of thinking they'd be some pushovers. I believe one of their army snipers has the record in sniping kills distance wise.

I'm so glad they are our northern neighbors and on our side.

Russia & Qatar will host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups

Congrats to Russia. And hopefully they'll make sure tourists won't get stabbed or robbed during the world cup if the wikileak story that the government controls the Russia mafia is true.

Hopefully this won't lead to a 2nd Falkland war.
