U.S Army 1st Brigade Combat Team: Part of a Multinational Response Force for North America

 North American Integration  Comments Off on U.S Army 1st Brigade Combat Team: Part of a Multinational Response Force for North America
Nov 022008

The merger of North America, and the Western Hemisphere, is still on track. The 1st BCT (U.S. Army Brigade Combat Team) is serving a tour in the United States in order to train and respond to disasters, terrorists attacks and other situations occurring in North America.

Nebraska National Guard/Alaska Air National Guard conduct exercise Alaska Shield/Northern Edge 07. Sponsored by U.S. Northern Command.“Beginning OCT. 1, (2008) for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-today control of the U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command (U.S.NORTHCOM), as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.”

The permanent assignment of a U.S. Army brigade to the Northern Command means that it will be part of an integrated rapid response force which includes Canada, Mexico and other agencies. This force, for the next year, will be called CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force, or CCMRF (pronounced ‘sea-smurf’).

This integrated response force for North America can be found on a U.S. Department of State website (You may want to print out the short State Department article since it verifies this integration of North America, with a common security perimeter, an outer border for the continent so the interior borders can be open.) Click here, read the article, then click on link at bottom. At the Council on Foreign Relations plan for Building a North American Community, click on English version, 295K PDF. Pages 10,11, and 12 recommend this integration of North American forces as part of the merger of North America.

IMPORTANT NOTICE; The two paragraphs, USNORTHCOM’s AOR and Our commands (NORAD and NORTHCOM) are both accurate as printed. Disregard any notices put here stating otherwise.  You can print it for reference.

USNORTHCOM’s AOR (area of responsibility) includes air, land, and sea approaches and encompasses the continental United States, Alaska, Canada, Mexico and the surrounding water out to approximately 500 nautical miles. It also includes the Gulf of Mexico and the Straits of Florida…The commander of USNORTHCOM is responsible for theater security cooperation (a harmonized and integrated force) with Canada and Mexico.”

“The defense of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands is the responsibility of the U.S. Southern Command.” (More on SOUTHCOM in another article, which includes a U.S. military force, integrated with South American forces, to carry out the same mission as NORTHCOM, with combat operations in that part of the Western Hemisphere, against insurgencies and other targets.) See the SOUTHCOM Mission.

“This new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities.” (Army Times)

According to the Army Times writer, “They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack…Training for homeland scenarios has already begun at Fort Steward….”

Colonel Roger Cloutier, 1st BCT commander, said that his men will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded.” He was “referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.”

On the NORTHCOM website, under “Our Partners.” the relationship with Canada (NORAD, the U.S. and Canada), Mexico and other stakeholders are defined:

Our commands (NORAD and NORTHCOM) fully rely on the relationship we maintain with partners such as Canada, Mexico and myriad agencies. While we have multiple partners and stakeholders, we are united in purpose to provide increased security and defense of North America. We will capitalize on the experience, expertise and capabilities of our potential partners, incorporating these into our plans, training exercises and operations. Whether operating in a supported or supporting role (depending on which part of North America the disaster, combat, or civil unrest is occurring-my words), the forces employed for homeland defense or civil support must be able to work with every government, Service, and agency that provides members to serve in homeland and continental defense operations,”  See NORTHCOM, Canada Command release fraction of new Canada-U.S.military pact.

NOTICE: USNORTHCOM has deleted the original site’s content of “Our commands” from public viewing but the paragraph above is still valid and easy to understand. (01/26/12) and (01/27/12)

This idea of a  security plan for North and South America came about from a monograph (2002) by Colonel Joseph Nunez, “a professor in the Department of National Security and Strategy at the US Army War College.

The plan was designed for the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), an “economic” merger of the Western Hemisphere, scheduled for implementation by 2005 but which ran into roadblocks from some South American nations.

George Bush Sr. launched this plan on June 27, 1990 as the Enterprise of the Americas. It was put into “high gear” by Bill Clinton in December of 1994 in Miami, Florida when his administration “launched a program of continental ‘economic integration,’ …when 34 nations decided “to form a Free Trade Area of the Americas.” George Bush took up the task in his administration but after the FTAA failure he and the leaders of Canada and Mexico decided to push the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America. The roadmap for this continental merger is the Council on Foreign Relations plan for Building a North American Community, including governing institutions.

In the meantime Bush is trying to make progress on the FTAA by signing trade agreements with as many South American nations as possible. Currently he is pushing the ones from Columbia and Panama before he leaves office. It is a backdoor way of reaching the same goal. And remember, John McCain has promised to “pursue the FTAA” if he is elected president. See this blog, archives, “John McCain will integrate the Western Hemisphere if elected President” (12/22/07).

Colonel Nunez’s plan would have a special service force that “would reflect the realities of the 21st century and is attuned to regional security virtues and challenges…”

Miami, HQ for USSOUTHCOM, is also favored to be the HQ for the FTAA, the AMERICAS.With this plan, “each nation in the hemisphere would retain their military forces as they now exist, however, two new continental…units would be created from each nation’s military branches, starting with the countries that are most dominant in their respect[ive] regions. Hence, there would be a trans-North American security unit made up of forces principally from the US, Canada and Mexico…, and the South American trans-continental force would incorporate military personnel and equipment from Brazil, Argentina, and Chile (and now the United States).”  See Re-zoning the World, The Merging of the Americas in a New Global Order.

Nunez: “This new security archtecture must be empowered to act decisively and competently. After all, if we-the states of the region-are going to construct a hemispheric economic community, there had better be a security community that can protect it, and without delay. In essence, the new security architecture must have standing multinational forces that can handle humanitarian assistance missions, peacekeeping, peace enforcement, and other small scale contingencies (combat operations).”

These forces are designed so that a corporate-run trading region can enjoy security and prosperity as they go about making profits with cheap continental labor. This merger of North America, followed by the integration of the Western Hemisphere, with an army of the north and south, is well-documented. These armies are currently being constructed.

So too, is the North American Community. In fact, legislation toward building this integrated continent can be found in the security section of most comprehensive immigration (amnesty) bills. They will most likely be in the next immigration bills for Congress to consider, either this year or under the next president.  See archives here, “George Bush, Condoleezza Rice: Last try at Merging North America.” (06/07/08)

The forces building this New World Order won’t stop their efforts to destroy our sovereign nation. And the U.S. Constitution will be changed to comply with the new set of rules. You can forget the first and second amendments since this new order, according to George W. Bush, will be based on international law.
