The U.S. and Canada recently signed several bilateral agreements that will further strengthen continental security and defense cooperation. Deeper military integration between both countries is part of efforts to establish a North American security perimeter and better address common global threats.

Following the recent Permanent Joint Board on Defense (PJBD) meeting which took place in Ottawa, the Commander of Canada Command, Lt.-Gen Walter Semianiw and the Commander of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM), Gen. Charles Jacoby, Jr. signed three military documents. The first was the Combined Defense Plan which a backgrounder described as a, “planning framework between Canada Command, its counterpart USNORTHCOM, and NORAD for enhanced defense cooperation between Canada and the U.S. should governments require each other’s assistance.” The second is the Information Sharing Memorandum of Understanding, “an arrangement between Canada Command, its counterpart USNORTHCOM and NORAD to identify and provide for ease of sharing information amongst the three organizations.” The Civil Assistance Plan, which was originally signed in 2008 and allows the armed forces of one nation to support the other during an emergency was also renewed for two years.

    Sound good to me as long as they leave out Mexico. Originally that was part of the globalization starting with regions. I did my PhD on that issue or Regions. For me it was Canada and USA. Mexico needed to look South and organize that region. My research showed that to survive and prosper the Regions had to be among people with common values. Israel entrance blocked a planned regional development in the Middle East. Also need common borders to allow easy connection for smaller economic and personal communication.

    It makes me uneasy, but I pray Barry O’bama is not commander-in chief if it comes to pass.
