U.S. Strategically Places Troops to Fort Drum, New York
The 10th Mountain division(consiting of 10,000 thousand troops), has been based
at Fort Drum in New York State, close to the Canadian border. One respected analyst has
come up with a therory that the U.S. have positioned troops here to, in the event
of a crisis in Canada(ie. Seperation of Quebec), seize the Canadian Forces communications
center in Kingston, Ontario, therfore making the Military without contact with other
bases(rendering it almost completly useless),then cutting off Hwy. 401 and Hwy. 2 to prevent any
reinforcements to defend Toronto or Ottawa, and eventually seizing Ottawa, and
taking control of the country.
However, this could be stopped by Canadian Forces, but the unit that could have stoped
it, the Airborne, has been dispanded.
U.S. officials now decline from talking about what Fort Drum is used for.
