For Zet who is always the soul of reason:

This thread has led to some heated exchanges between friends. So, if I may interject a thought here in the interests of perspective.

If I may be so bold as to use a little metaphor to simplify the special relationship between GB, America, and Canada, here goes.

We are much like three brothers. Britain is the eldest brother. Though a hellion and a terror in his younger days, we learned much of what is best in us from him. However, we didn't always learn from his previous mistakes and repeated many of them. Though our older brother matured into a scholarly professor of literature and fine arts, he can still mix it up with the best of them and we always feel better when he is at our side in a fight.

America was blessed with great size, power, and speed. We went to State, not Oxford, and majored in business while playing football, fornicating, and drinking a lot of beer. We are now a Pro Bowl NFL Linebacker and the toughest player in the league. We also run several successful businesses and have become quite wealthy. There were some bad times between us in our youth as we struggled to figure out relative status in the family. We got over it, however, and were stronger than ever as a family. We still don't have quite the "class" of our older brother and can be a bit boorish at times. But, we have always been there when needed and always will be.

Our Canadian brother went to community college, married the ugly girl from high school, and now manages a KFC. Despite his eclipse by his more prominent brothers, he has always stood by our sides and is arguably the most decent of us all.

As brothers, we have never lost a fight when together. We have so much in common, but minor differences that irritate the hell out of each other from time to time.

Together, we may not be able to conquer the world, but we could give it one hell of a fight.

As long as one of exists, the others need never fear for their survival. We rose together and we will fall together.
