Uh Oh

It's happening quicker than I thought it would:

North American Army created without OK by Congress
In a ceremony that received virtually no attention in the American media, the United States and Canada signed a military agreement Feb. 14 allowing 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.

Sovereignty shmovereignty.
All we need now is the south for the North American (Union) Army (or would it be Confederate?!?!?!?).
Once we add the Mexican army...wait, they already tread on our soil.
I really like the vague "domestic civil emergency" line, too.

Here's the Northcom piece:

U.S. Northern Command, Canada Command establish new bilateral Civil Assistance Plan
“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. “Unity of effort during bilateral support for civil support operations such as floods, forest fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and effects of a terrorist attack, in order to save lives, prevent human suffering and mitigate damage to property, is of the highest importance, and we need to be able to have forces that are flexible and adaptive to support rapid decision-making in a collaborative environment.”

And the coolest part? Congress wasn't even involved! No need for constitutional trivialities when there are brown people ready to do us in at every turn! If you're for liberty, than you're for the terrorists!!! Between this, the detention facilities, and the general militarization of our police force, it's looking uglier all the time.

And what a great way to prepare people for other foreign troops on their soil later. It's perfect; start out with English speaking Caucasians, and then ultimately graduate to blue helmeted, socialist child rapists after that!!

Another reason foreign troops are useful is they are far more likely to fire upon people that are not of their own country. I wonder if the Canadians torture people to get information...?
I know it's ok for us to torture people, but does that logically extend to Canuks torturing us for our own good?

Additionally, the Posse Comitatus Act doesn't say anything about troops from other governments, so this is an awesome tactic to circumvent that as well (but I guess Waco showed us that it didn't really matter that much anyway).

Curiously, I have seen nothing about this in the mainstream US press.
This is a big deal.
It has made a minor splash in the Canadian press, an interesting article, BTW; here's an excerpt:

Canada Command spokesman Commander David Scanlon said it will be up to civilian authorities in both countries whether military assistance is requested or even used. He said the agreement is "benign" and simply sets the stage for military-to-military co-operation if the governments approve.

Ah, it's benign. Stage setting and all. And hey, the government has to approve it!! I mean, we can trust the Lizard Queen, B. Hussein, and McInsane, right?
Forget I said anything.

Keep your powder dry, kids.
You may need it sooner than you think.

Should I max out my credit cards now?
