North American Army: An End To Independance

February 27, 2008 at 1:40 am 8 comments

Came across this interesting, and (potentially) scary, article today. It states that on February 14 Armed Forces Commanders from both the U.S.A and Canada signed an agreement that allows the armed forces from one nation to assist the other nation during times of domestic civil emergencies.

Here are some links: this one to an article on the Canadian Free Press site, where I first discovered this story, and a link to an American blogging about it.

I have mixed feelings about this. First, the public hasn’t been informed of this important decision in any particularly broad way. This to me indicates that those involved in the decision realize the hot-potato that this new policy is to each nations sovereignty.

On the other hand, I’m pro the dismantling of national borders in a way that benefits all people affected. Of course I mean this in a purely idealistic way, in that I believe that governments and individuals will be responsible and not abuse open borders. My ideally theoretical world isn’t perfect, I can admit, but anything that potentially helps to negate further extreme nationalism is good.

On the one hand this may be nothing, an innocuous decision that benefits both nations during times of emergency. On the other hand it may be an early blow in the constant pursuit of Manifest Destiny.

Who has more to lose from a Canadian/American union? This is easily answered by determining which county has the bigger population, more cultural influence, larger military, need for Manifest Destiny, Republicans and Mormons.

    Besides, everyone knows once the American military is here, THEY’LL NEVER LEAVE. We will effectively be annexed. It’s an evil plot and our leaders are too blind or naive to see it.

    But seriously, one of the ironic things about this is how many Americans are convinced that NAFTA is about America being taken over. There’s this whole paranoid conspiracy meme about black helicopters and the UN, etc, etc. And part of it is that NAFTA is about Canada (and Mexico) taking over the US by stealth. And as you say, when you look at the relative size, wealth, military and so forth it seems pretty clear who should be more worried.

    I’d be interested to see who is initiating these rumours in the States. I’d be willing to bet there is some organization behind pushing this agenda, for some reason that may or may not be clear as of yet…at least not clear to the average citizen.

    We don’t have time to worry about informing the public. We are too busy deciding who we hate less – black men or white lesbians. Tomorrow is the day we will put that question to rest for once and for all.

    ps: We can’t open our borders! We’ll start speaking Mexican and after the war we simply don’t have the cash to pay for the illegal ninos and ninas.

    I wish we had YOUR healthcare system.

    Health care here is so much better as far as I’m concerned. It’s not perfect, but it’s good for the citizens.

    What is this Mexican language you speak of? heheh…

    I wouldn’t take anything I read in the Canadian Free Press seriously. They seem like a bunch of flakes and aggresively resist my efforts to sign out of their distribution list.

    As for Canaidan/American military cooperation, that has been going on to some level for ages. NORAD is one example (alternates between being commanded by a Canadian and an American general) and I think there’s something similar in place with naval forces.
