Seattle under attack! Harry Reid on Meet the Press

He's got your number and not afraid to go in Gaza-style.

If they even think about lobbing rockets, hockey sticks or bacon slabs from Vancouver into Seattle, they are in for the full fury of the United States, according to the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid.

From NBC's Meet the Press

MR. GREGORY: Let me ask you about the ground invasion into Gaza. Do you think on the part of this Israeli--of the Israelis this was offensive or defensive?

SEN. REID: I spoke to Prime Minister Olmert a couple of days ago. He indicated that they would do the ground activities. Let's understand the background. For eight years they've been firing rockets into Israel. They've become more intense the last few months. Israelis have been killed, maimed and injured. Sometimes more than 200 a day coming into Israel. If this were going on in the United States from Vancouver, Canada, into Seattle, would we react? Course we do. We would have to.

So Andy, Sharat, the guy at the fish market, and Starbucks , the USofA has got your back.

But what if Portland attacked Seattle? Oh no!

You can watch this week's Meet the Press below. The Reid comments about Vancouver attacking Seattle start at about the 5:30 mark.
