"Buster"! thou shouldst be living at this hour

Some on the right have denied that a nuclear option is being considered for Iran. The more ambitious Jonah Goldberg defended it by claiming the Pentagon has plans to invade Canada. Those nationalists among our readers should be aware that these plans were developed by the War department in the 1930s.

More importantly, we had a plan to invade them back. As the journalist Charles Taylor related in the 1980s, Defence Scheme No. 1 was developed by the slightly loopy Brigadier James Sutherland "Buster" Brown, but kiboshed by King. According to Wikipedia, Buster did his own reconnaissance in plain clothes, and even predicted that we would be greeted as liberators during Prohibition.

Update: Steve Sailer points out that Goldberg called for an attack on the CN Tower a few moons ago, when anti-Canadianism was the flavour of the month in the crazy neocon set. I recall much panic among our own local bourgeoisie at this development. Our clients were advised not to worry too much, given the advanced stage of Attention Deficit Disorder attained by the angry American right.
