The coastlines are far too densely populated, any sort of invasion would result in barbaric displays of collateral damage.
D-Day, it's been done before, what's to stop it from happening again? Especially since Russia is planning to put military service into its school curriculum. I would guess that if Europe was up to it, it could take down the US without many problems. Also, Canada and Mexico are the only entry points but as far as I know the southern border is terribly defended.

1) Mutually Assured Destruction. "Get your troops off our territiory or we turn your homeland into a plutonium dumping ground."

2) We can move our forces a lot faster nowadays than the germans could in 1944

3) The British aren't running a French resistance here to sabatoge us

Ya, but we would see them coming well in advance.

- I'd fight only in a civil war against western Canadians - especially if I can drop a shit load of Humane Bombs of FreedomĀ® over the province of Manitoba.
