The United States Coast Guard have started to patrol the Great Lakes with machine guns mounted on their vessels and are conducting live-ammunition training drills on the U.S. side to prepare officers to combat terrorists flooding across the border from Canada by boat.
Yeow - and this isn't even a joke. The idea that the US can "practice" military manoeuvers on the Great Lakes is utter nonsense. Are these people out to lunch? Practice on your own damn private military lake.
C'mon over to the cottage for a beer, but leave the bullets at home.
