Know what else it is?
It's about to become a military target.
Isabelle Belanger (WSWS) reports that the US Air Force wants to put "a drone squadron" there. So that means that in a war that's a big one -- as opposed to the US government just bullying around a struggling and developing country the way it's done since WWII -- Niagara Falls becomes a target. Niagara Falls, for all its beauty, natural wonder and historical importance is a justifiable target for air raids and more.
I don't live there and I'm outraged.
I cannot believe the way the US government repeatedly destroys our world and pushes us all to the point of extinction. Whether it's refusing to seriously address global warming or ignoring the very real threat that nuclear weapons and nuclear plants are, whether it's using our people as cannon fodder in these wars of choice or starving the needy throughout the land, time and again, the US government sides with destruction.
If they get their way, Niagara Falls moves to the top of the list as a target in a full blown war. And don't think for a moment that if the drone squad goes in there, Niagara Falls doesn't also greatly increase its risk of being a target for foreign terrorists.
