North American Union supporting Prime Minister Stephen Harper moves to put Canadian military under U.S. command

by Traci Lawson


Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper

The Stephen Harper government has endorsed a military Agreement with the U.S. Bush administration, which destroys the independence of Canada's military. Why do you think that Canada's armed forces has been forced to fight alongside the U.S. military, in the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan? This is no coincidence. Canada's military in no longer substantively independent from the U.S. military command structure, thanks to the Stephen Harper government and their confederates. This Agreement also obliges Canada to provide financial and military personnel support to the U.S. in Iraq

Canadians no longer have substantive control in policies regarding the deployment of Canada's own military. The once great peacekeeping tradition of the Canadian Armed Forces has been set aside, under the apparent U.S. continentalist agenda of the Stephen Harper government.

Jim Kouri, a writer, reports in his article titled "North American Military Agreement Signed by U.S. and Canada" that, "in a political move that received little if any attention by the American news media, the United States and Canada entered into a military Agreement on 14 February 2008."

Mr. Kouri elaborates that this Agreement "allows the armed forces from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a domestic civil emergency, even one that does not involve a cross-border crisis, according to a police commander involved in U.S. homeland security planning and implementation."

The U.S. Bush administration has accomplished a goal that has alluded U.S. military planners since the War of 1812 that was lost to the Canadians: the military take-over of Canada. This is exactly the kind of process of colonial assimilation, that anti-Free Trade advocates had predicted back in the 1988 Canadian Federal Election.

Indeed, this fundamental breach of Canadian sovereignty is being carried out under the terms of the Security and Prosperity and Partnership North American Union (SPP-NAU) agenda, that in term has been substantively legitimated by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). NAFTA uses the pre-text of trade as a political deception for the take-over of Canada by the U.S. political-military-industrial complex

In Canada, this Agreement which paves the way for the militaries of the U.S. and Canada to cross each other's borders to fight "domestic emergencies", was not announced either by Prime Minister Harper's administration or the Canadian military. The Agreement met with protests and demonstrations by Canadians who are opposed to such treaties with the U.S. Bush administration.

The Stephen Harper government, and the apparent traitorous parliamentarians who have elected to join in a "conspiracy of silence", have now provided the U.S. political-military-industrial complex with a pretext to perpetrate the military occupation of Canada, against the constitutional will of Canadians.

The Agreement was signed at U.S. Army North headquarters, Fort Sam Houston, Texas, by US Air Force General Gene Renuart, commander of NORAD and US Northern Command, or USNORTHCOM, and by Canadian Air Force Lt. General Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command, without necessary parliamentary hearings and corresponding public scrutiny as required by Canadian constitutional law.

"This document is a unique, bilateral military plan to align our respective national military plans to respond quickly to the other nation's requests for military support of civil authorities," Renuart said in a statement published on the USNORTHCOM website. also documents that in May 2007, U.S. President Bush took it upon himself to sign the National Security Presidential Directive 51 which is also known as Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20. This neo-fascist directive authorizes the Office of the U.S. President to take on German Nazi Fuhrer-like powers to unilaterally declare a "national emergency". The U.S. Office of the President can now usurp all functions of federal, state, local, territorial and tribal governments, without necessarily obtaining the approval of U.S. Congress to do so.

Mr. Kouri also observes that, "While Americans are being kept in the dark about this treaty, Canadian citizens are being totally ignored by their government."

"The extent of 'bi-national' military integration is unprecedented and has received absolutely no public debate in the House of Commons. If Canadians wish to read about the details of this military agreement, Canadians must go to the Northern Command website to see any evidence of the new agreement.

Canada's mass-media has been taken over by North American Union (NAU) supporting interests associated with the North American Competitiveness Council, that was apparently created by the U.S. Bush administration, as a parallel American government.

"Once the Canadian people discover they can be [legally invaded] by U.S. troops, they will take to the streets and protest and use the very effective weapon of civil disobedience. Canadians will not stand for occupation by a foreign army same as Americans won't," said a conservative columnist and commentator.

"I'm surprised that the Canadian people haven't already displayed their opposition to such a treaty. Economics is one thing, but military use of force is quite another. We have our own police, security and military forces, thank you. We don't been Americans coming into Canada with weapons," she said. "And Americans don't need Canadian soldiers.
