I know we lack the ability to respond but I wonder about the stomach?

A big country picks on a little country and the little country is embarrassed??

I don't think so.

Don't the russians eat Canadian wheat??

Yes they do, politics aside we have never really exercised our sovereignty over "our" part of the Arctic. the wheat can be garnered from other sources. The Americans have challenged us with no response, not a whimper. American subs have traversed Canadian waters with impunity and we have done, nor can do, anything. So when Russia decides to drill on Canadian soil, we are on our own. We can hardly scamper and hide behind the U.S. when they are of the same opinion as Russia. So what, we just stand by, arms akimbo in angst and watch? Or perhaps we secretly pray the U.S. will see it as an opportunity to face Russia down.
