Ooh, I've been dying to see this! After nearly 4 years of being BFFs, Canada and America seem serious about battling each other. Both Congresses are in the process of NEing the other, with Canada, the aggressor, voting 12-2 in favor as of 22:30 eRepublik time, while America is much more closely voting, with a slim 15-8 vote, not enough to pass with 2/3 majority. While I personally am not a fan of the war, if it happens, it would be much closer than anyone thinks.
America is a superpower, there's no denying that. But could Canada truly prevail over their southern neighbor? There's reason for the men of the Maple Leaf to have hope. First is Russia. Alaska is connected to both Russia and mainland USA, so it's reasonable to assume that in case of a war, the Russians would be quick to give some backup.
And the Mexicans? They're down now, but are constantly looking for a way back to freedom, and will gladly take the opportunity to blitz America and seize back regions. There's even been discussions between the two slices of bread sandwiching America to seek cooperation in case of such an event, though I'll neither confirm or deny the fact that I just made it up to make the paragraph longer.
But what about their allies in Poland and Spain? It's unlikely that America would have any support in a war against Canada. Spain is busy battling Portugal, which though weaker, gives a significant challenge that can only beaten by the Spaniards' best. And Poland? With peace terms being negotiated between France and UK (no specifics ^.^), Poland would have no easy time going through the French wall preventing an Atlantic escapade. Plus, if Poland joined such a war, they could risk Russia attacking from the European end instead of the American side, as well as hostile German, Dutch, and Belarusian troops itching to fight.
The point is, although the Canada/America war likely will not happen, even if such a war hypothetically took place, America would not have the luxury of strolling into Canada halfheartedly. Especially without their Terran allies after the Ctrl fiasco, America's solitary status makes them much less formidable. Canada desires peace, but is prepared for war.
Until next time, take care!
