With what? Their navy has to be towed into battle by American tugboats and uses submarines that can't go underwater. Their air force is made-up of museum pieces that are older than the fathers of the pilots flying them. Having the ramshackle Canadian military lurching around on a battlefield, constantly breaking down and having to radio for help, would be more dangerous than it would be helpful.


Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy can't handle a Canadian winter and has to ask for shelter. Come here, poor poor frozen sailors, Daddy Drapeau will keep you warm...:)

MONTREAL — A brand new U.S. navy warship that has been stuck in Montreal for weeks will spend the winter in Canada after its journey to Florida was thwarted by cold and ice.

The USS Little Rock was commissioned in Buffalo on Dec. 16 in a grand ceremony attended by more than 8,000 people that featured a brass band, speeches by military leaders and a chaplain who prayed for "fair winds and following seas."

But it hasn't gotten very far since then, after its maiden journey was complicated by unusually heavy ice conditions that have kept it in Montreal since Christmas Eve.

Now the navy has decided to wait until the weather improves before allowing the ship to continue to its home port in Mayport, Fla., according to a spokesperson.

"The temperatures in Montreal and throughout the transit area have been colder than normal, and included near-record low temperatures, which created significant and historical conditions in the late December, early January time frame," Lt.-Cmdr. Courtney Hillson said in a phone interview.

"Keeping the ship in Montreal until waterways are clear ensures the safety of the ship and crew, and will have limited impact on the ship's operational schedule."
