War with Canada?

Who struck the first blow? The Canadians, with their nasty attacks on US policies, or the United states, bent on influencing the Canadian voters with its intentionally intimidating bigness?

U.S. Ambassador to Canada, David Wilkins, issued the sternest warning yet:
"It may be smart election-year politics to thump your chest and constantly criticize your friend and your No. 1 trading partner. But it is a slippery slope, and all of us should hope that it doesn't have a long-term impact on the relationship," the U.S. ambassador to Ottawa, David Wilkins, said in a tough speech to the Canadian Club at the Chateau Laurier.
How far the acrimonious war of words will slide down this 'slippery slope' is anyone's guess. The rising tensions have the Eurofied Canadian sissy communist environmentalists worried it will have a chilling effect on their lying for office. At the same time salivating trade war mongers in the US northern tier of states eagerly anticipate sealing the border against such brazen Canuck insults and unfairly subsidized goods.

Why can't we all just get along?
Update: North-South conflict escalates as Canada strikes back.
