If you take the American argument seriously

Individuals in those states would be much better off, if they could execute trespassers on the spot.

Hooray. Get rid of that pesky due process.

Guys like you always seem to forget that at some point you could be the the one accused of summarily executed for trespass.

Remember why the Japanese didn't invade the lower 48 states of the United States. Also remember why the Japanese Army selected Alaska as the first state to invade. (Well back then it wasn't a state, but the point still stands.)

Are you really so ignorant of geography and history?

The Japanese never invaded the lower 48 because of the big honkin' ocean between the two countries.

If the Japanese agreed with Billy Mitchell, who said, "whoever holds Alaska will hold the world," why did they send such an anemic force to invade Attu and Kiska? Why did they not provide more support in to repel the inevitable American counter attack?

I have seen houses with heavy brick walls topped with barbed or electric wire. I
guess that if you add a paranoid man with a rifle, then you'd have someone who
could reasonably survive in such a world.

He wouldn't grow to old age, but he'd survive long enough to be replaced by his
children.

...I don't imagine anyone would actually want to live like that, though.
