This is coolbert:

My blog as described "eclectic and free-ranging". Ideas for blog entries taken from a variety of sources.

To include the satirical Internet web site "Cracked". From "Cracked":

"5 Unfought Wars That Would Have Changed Everything"

# 1. Operation Unthinkable.

# 2. Defense Scheme No. 1, aka The Canadian Invasion of the U.S.

#  3. War Plan Red, aka The U.S. Invasion of Canada.

# 4. Fall Grun aka Stopping Hitler Before WWII.

# 5. MacArthur's Nuclear War.

Go read it all!!


* War between Canada and the United States and planning for same has to be taken within the context of Anglo-American relations.

Hostility between Great Britain and the United States with the possibility of armed conflict lasting until relatively quite recently historically, at least up unto the time of the Great War. Canada as a nation not totally fully sovereign and independent until 1977.

* Mac Arthur at various times during the Korean War wanting to use nuclear weapons or creating a radioactive cobalt barrier to extend the entire width of the Korean Peninsula. The radiological weapon!

"'a belt of radioactive cobalt . . . it has an active life of between 60 and 120 years. For at least 60 years there could have been no land invasion of Korea from the North.'"

Wars as "unfought" and all for the better? You the devoted reader to the blog will have to decide for yourselves.
