"he did not deal with it the first time"
...because he filled the UN mandate to expel Saddam, not depose him. This time it is the UN that is irrelevant, you should lay blame properly where it belongs: with the spineless Canadians who are beneath contempt and have surrendered rhetorical and territorial credulity. They are the bastards, not US.

(Visit the strange and wonderful.)
The Liberal party is elected in Ontario, more specifically in Toronto. They do not recieve enough support in the rest of the country to form a government. They recieve less than half of the popular vote nationally but due to gerrymandering with the ridings, and a split conservative vote still form majority governments. They get all the votes from immigrants because they will let anyone in the country. The CBC get 1 billion a year to campaign for the Liberal party and they come out for every election. Every US President excluding G.W. Bush has pandered too the Liberals, ignored their anti-American rhetoric and in the process undercut consevatives in Canada.
Things to do to make things better. The Canadian Alliance should not run any candidates east of the Ontario/Manitoba border. Canadian consevatives should make the deteriorating Canada/US relationship the elecion issue. Talk about the potential of lost jobs in Ontario. Their is a good chance Canada will be in recession so this should be effective. Canadian business leaders should get out of bed with the Libs and tell people that more Liberal government=less jobs. They should talk about how badly Canada was hurt when the US border was closed. They should talk about how they could hire more people if taxes were more reasonable. The battle is won or lost in Ontario and people need to know that electing sleazy governments has a cost.
If Americans want to help Pres. Bush could give Paul Martin a series of "get out of the dog house" jobs eg. Kick Carolyn Martin out of the Liberal party and publically announce that she will not be allowed to run for the Liberal party because of her anti-American statements. If Martin does not, then the US ambassador, should take a page from Raymond Chetien's book. Announce that the US government does not consider Canada, under the liberals, a trustworthy ally and require that Canadians entering the US get visas (Mark Steyn's suppose they really are bastards idea).
In the end however this is a Canadian problem and too be honest I don't think Canada is important enough to the US for the US to lend a hand. If it is going to be solved then Canadians will have to do it. It is sad to watch, if things keep going the way they are going Canada will become Argentina. Kyoto, high taxes, big gov spending, gun laws, uncontrolled immigration; alot of people will be very sorry they voted Liberal all these years, but like the grasshopper in the fairy tail they will have learned too late.

(Mr Bush, please don't speak to any member of a Liberal government on any topic.)
