Submarines of the US need their FLEX ROOM
Now Playing: I spy a USA sub in Canadian waters
Hello Zebra3 Readers ...
Here is an article on the issue of nuclear submarine of the USA..... going up the Strait of Juan de Fuca ....between Canada and the U.S. <i think?> And how for many years the subject of the right to do this was in limbo. Now as the first/last paragraph eloquently expresses.... the US got it's its pro-military-bad-ass-way.

The US Navy, as the premier power-projection force of the United States, would not allow any restriction on travel in waters anywhere in the world. Their blanket position is that the entire world is the operational area for the U.S. Navy, and that there are no sovereign areas. Total freedom of movement remains non-negotiable.
The Canadian government could congratulate itself on doing what was necessary to protect sovereignty, and the US Navy got what it demanded. With a simple exchange of notes, Canada once more gave up more sovereignty to the United States, and more nuclear weapons would transit through Canada on a regular basis.

Interesting how the US gets it's way and gets the military submarine access! Somehow as I read this it makes me think of Iraq and Afghanistan ....and subsequently ...that this kind of dominance and such a prolific military superiority attitude seems wrong!
At least to this joe anybody something seems amiss!
My "radar" of right or wrong just went 0ff
