To be fair, the US military has plans for every possible contingency in place, probably including invading Canada, eh.

I don't believe the US has a plan to overthrow the current Canadian government. The US is supposedly working on a basis that somehow Guido is an interim president because he declared himself so. A plan for a coup flys in the face of that premise.

My point was the the US military always has plans that cover every contingency for every country. The plans are adjusted as needed. You don't stay on top by losing a step.

Of course the US is not going into Canada. We're buddies.

I don't believe the US has a specific plan for a coup in every country similar to or to the extent of the plan detailed in the OP.

The Joint Army and Navy Board began doing this in the 1920's. I see no reason to believe that today's military is not fully prepared for any scenario. They would pull up a plan and adjust as needed based on conditions at that moment.
