They failed.
Most modern navy in the world. I'm not kidding.
You tried to invade us once. Once.
CANADA won the War of 1812, not the USA. Why? I believe that if a country can get into a nation's capital by killing the country's army off and burn down the White House, then they have basically won the war.
If I'm not mistaken, Canada has burnt down the White House . . . not once, but twice! Only country to do so.

Much Music kicks MTV's ***.
X-Files was filmed in Vancouver.
Mike Myers is not only Austin Powers, but he is Dr. Evil and Fat Bastard as well.
