Sovereignty and HST

Paul Celucci, US Ambassador to Canada pulled out a wicked Jedi mind trick on Canada. Here we thought we were being all sovereign by saying "no - it's our airspace" and PC pulls an foreign affairs Jedi - he says we actually ceded sovereignty to the US by not joining. This is because the US is going to shoot down any missiles anyway. It's confusing, I know. Well, as is the case with these politicians, "no" means "no - for now". It's still inevitable.
Also, did you know that Prince Bandar was Hunter S. Thompson's Neighbour?
" Thompson came to the Aspen area in the early 1960s. It had a rough-and-tumble quality that's been replaced by wealth and gentility. Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan owns an enormous spread above the city. "
