    well.. here's a quick quiz to see if any of them know spit about Canadian/American relations..

    1] A North American country is attacked by terrorists, who bomb, kidnap and murder. The country's leader imposes martial law, jailing many citizens without charge. Most of the population supports the measure. The terrorist movement is crushed. This happened in

    2] A North American country sends troops to an Arab state, ostensibly to help the oppressed population. While there, the troops imprison civilians, commit torture and murder, and even take snapshots of their abusive behaviour. This was done by:
    a - Canadians b - Americans c - both

    3] The early Europeans in Canada and the U.S. massacred many aboriginal people.

    c - All countries with high rates of gun ownership have high gun crime rates
    d - Michael Moore's pants catch fire every time he steps out in public

    6] Finally, if you stand on U.S. soil..Canada is to the:
    a - North
