Canada wasn't even Canada during the War of 1812. And the primary objective of the United States was never to take over Canada (while it was a possibility). It was mostly about America's pent up rage against the British, and the Native Americans' pent up range against the colonists. The British were more interested in the Napoleonic wars, and Canada only had the troops that Britain sent. The outcome was really that the Native Americans lost, the new Americans turned their anger into patriotism, the Canadians decided to work on their own independence to avoid getting caught up in other wars for Britain, and Britain got slightly distracted from their Napoleonic wars for a couple of seconds.

When we went to make a grab for Canada, it was more of a "**** it, why not. Let's try and take more British land. That'll really piss 'em off."

And it did.

U.S.A. did not lose the Vietnam War. U.S.A never went to war with Vietnam. It was a conflict, because the US Congress didn't actually declare war. Instead the US President used his "constitutional discretion" calling it a "police action." U.S.A just went in there and killed a lot of men, women, and children, because Vietnam was negatively affecting neighboring countries.

Furthermore, the whole hippy-woodstock-peace movement came about because U.S.A's involment in Vietnam was so uncalled for, and so un-war related.

There's always the people who see these posts and even from the beginning of the post are formulating some sort of longwinded comment in their head.

You know who are.

As a Canadian we were taught that America could have steam rolled us, but seeing as though Canadian militia men and other british/native american forces held the US off long enough that considering they had pretty much only recently gained their independence, most were "losing interest" in fighting. It's been a while, so take that with a grain of salt.

not really america had 12000 men and 17 ships we were going to attack through new york but some dudes were like hey this war is useless so just go home so we attacked through Michigan and it failed because its hard to win wars against the worlds greatest power at that time

Thats what I mean by losing interest, people began realizing how useless it was, but they could have mucked our barns if they had gone through with the attack. Either way, nothing happened and Quebec's still a thing, so no one wins

I think this is funny, because us here in Europe only hear about the Napoleonic wars. I myself did not hear about the North American war of 1812 until I stumbled upon it as a teenager.

I don't think anybody really won outright.
America failed to take Canada and it's capital was burned, Britain failed to take America and got it's ass kicked wile in there.
If anything, the Canadians AND the Americans both won, as they both kept their land and won several major battles.

all these comments are pointless, the US and Britain had a little skrimish, no harm no foul, no real victors and at the end was the start of an alliance between US and Britain, and canada remained cold and useless.

I'm not black, lol. But I'm sure your father was, if we could ever find him. I hope you're not the product of rape. But it might explain your obsession with vintage photos and death.
I'm sorry your father wasn't around to hit you.

I'm glad you love "murican "an hero" cemeteries. All I can find are regular ones around here.
I'm sorry but I'm going to have to reject your blown kiss, you see I'm not attracted to cowardly anons, especially when they're too scared to comment without clicking the Anon box.
Good try though.

For Debate reasons I am American and I view all 3 as correct partly because we did lose the first battle horribly and our capital burned as well as the White House and although i don't remember Canada being involved we kicked the **** out of GB after that where every other battle was won by US including the surrender of an GB army in the south that still had thousands of soldiers so I can see why GB wouldnt want to :remember: that

It's  not that we don't want to remember it, we just don't deem it important enough to remember.   
I'm afraid we never consider it as a huge part of our history, Americans fighting for their independence is a mere spec in our history.

If I remember correctly, America was fueling patriotism to make an attempt at taking Canada for America, solely for the reason of being able to take more British land. There was a British commander, for the life of me I can't remember his name, that used brilliant scare tactics to route us out.

Canada wasn't really involved, they were just getting pushed around the entire war being like, "What's going on, eh?"

The invasion of canada had something to do with the US trying to stay neutral and Britain trying to stop us and America saying "We do what we want, bitch!"

the more the merrier, buddy.
in a fair war against an equaly strong opponent the US would lose. all they do is use drones and high tech soldiers against weak small and countries that refuse to be controlled by the corrupted US.

Contrary to popular belief, Canadian militia were not present at the burning of Washington; General Ross and over 4,000 British regulars landed on the eastern coast of Maryland and march inland. They were met by 6,000 American militia near Bladensburg. Although the Americans had more men, they weren't a match for the British regulars, and neither was their commander. The American army fled, and the redcoats marched into Washington.

It really bugs me when Canadians say that they burned down the Whitehouse, when in reality there were almost no Canadian troops involved in the Burning of Washington, the vast majority were Brittish troops who had sailed to America for the war.

Not only that, but Americans also managed to burn down Toronto. Burning down a whole city rather than a one building seems more devastating.

This comic sums up the comments from the Canadians.

"OMG, America just rename the war, "Canadian Independence War" cause the sole purpose was to invade Canada WHICH FAILED HAHAHA and the war ended after the White House burned down and was never rebuilt again cause it's a Tim Hortons. The End.
