Should we mass troops at the border with Canuckistan just in case they try to burn the White House down again!?

There's only one reason that Washington DC & the White House were captured & burned during the War of 1812.
It was to punish the US for war crimes and atrocities against White, Christian Canadian civilians:
"Women and children stood in the cold December winter and watched their homes and almost everything they owned in the world burn into ashes. One person witnessing the refugees wrote they "were exposed to all the severities of deep snow and a frosty sky, almost in a state of nakedness. How many perished by the inclemency of the weather, it is, at present, impossible to ascertain." Their first concern was to find some shelter. There were four hundred refugees who would die of exposure if cover could not be found quickly."
"How many died is unknown. However Lieutenant Col. Harvey wrote:“…as to the burning of the town of Niagara, in which a number of old and infirm persons were left to perish in the snow – an act which, the season of the year and all other circumstances considered, is unexampled in barbarity.”
"The mood of the British troops was dark indeed. Every man had one thing on his mind: Vengeance! By the end of the month, Lewiston, Buffalo and Black Rock were burnt in New York state. However unlike Newark, the population knew beforehand and many had fled with their winter provisions. Only one woman was reported killed in Buffalo in an altercation with a Native warrior. For his part in the burning of Newark, Brigadier-General McClure was relieved of his command and dismissed from the U.S. Army."
"The plight of the civilians that froze to death in Newark was published in numerous newspapers in England. This, along with the burning of Port Dover and other devastations experienced by Upper Canadians, all influenced military retribution brought upon Washington, DC the following year with the burning of its public buildings."

As for the current state of affairs, if Americans hadn't elected a pathological liar psycho to be President, the US wouldn't be in the trouble it's in.
Americans need to think about that. And throw the bum out before he gets America totally destroyed and wiped out of existence.

Even Justin Trudeau isn’t so stupid as to compromise the main fighting force that prevents Canada from being invaded by say 'Monaco' or the Swiss Guards.
