Dismantle NORAD! Make Canada a Zone for Peace!
Trudeau Government Signs Warmongering Joint Statement with the United States
Without any discussion with the public or even in Parliament, the Trudeau Liberal government issued a “Joint Statement on NORAD Modernization” with the U.S. Biden administration on August 14. NORAD, now known as the North American Aerospace Defense Command, puts the Canadian military under the control of USNORTHCOM of the U.S. armed forces. NORAD, along with NATO, integrates Canada into the U.S. war economy and strategy to wage endless wars for global hegemony. It brings Canadian forces under the command of the president of the United States.
The joint statement was issued on the eve of the Trudeau government’s launch of the pandemic election. It represents a warmongering outlook and program unacceptable to the majority of Canadians who want Canada to be a force for peace in the world. This is why the Trudeau government must say all its warmongering foreign relations are for peace, security and in the national interest. It is not so. Like the Biden administration, the Trudeau government also contends that no relations among the peoples of the world can be developed peacefully on the basis of mutual benefit and interest as one humanity.
Violence is the imperialist credo in international and domestic affairs and relations and the only way put forward for solving issues and problems at home and abroad. The doctrine is founded in the private interests of the global oligarchs who want to protect and expand their control, privilege and social wealth through the violence of state-organized war machines, which they have taken over, and their own private rogue mercenary armies. They refuse to solve problems peacefully, and deliberately foment regime change and violence throughout the world. They seek to overwhelm resistance to their control and to profit from war and war preparations through the sale and use of war material furnished from their military industrial/financial complex.
The NORAD joint statement exposes the Trudeau government as a participating warmonger and appeaser of the war crimes of U.S. imperialism. The issues of war and peace, war preparations, the war economy and military alliances are matters of life and death for humanity. The Trudeau government should be held to account for a warmongering joint statement hatched behind closed doors without any discussion, assessment or agreement of the people.
