THE TREACHEROUS FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS
Top officials from 34 nations from the western hemisphere gathered together to negotiate how their countries should interact with each other.
George W Bush Jr in World Affairs Council 2002:
”We are working to build a free trade area in America and we are determined to complete these negotiations by january 2005. Nothing will distract us. Nothing would deter us in completing this great work”.
They claim that the FTAA – Free Trade Agreement Area – would foster economic progress, enhance domestic prosperity and raise living standards throughout the region. But the real goal driving the plan are not so publicly promoted. To appreciate the real goals driving the FTAA it helps to understand the movement well underway, that targets the independence of nations. Strobe Talboot, editor of Time magazine and later Secretary of State under Clinton administration enthusiastically predicts:
”Nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single global authority”.
Henry Grunwald from Time magazine – and later Ronald Reagan’s ambassador in Austria:
”The nation-state will undergo sharp limitations of its sovereignty. Just as the old petty principalities had to dissolve into the wider, the nation-state will have to dissolve into wider structures”.
Robert Wright from the newspaper New Republican wrote:
”Much power now invested in the nation-state is indeed starting to migrate to international institutions. World government is in the cards”.
These persons implies that natural forces are responsible for the demise of independent nations. Yet, many promoting this motion belong to globalists organisations that are quietly working to restructure the world. Some of these global organisations is Council of Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and World Federalist Association.
A WORLD GOVERNMENT
The present drive for world government reflex the age-old lust for supreme power over mankind. Its architects sees self-governing nations with individual constitutions and laws and backed by national militaries as obstacles to establish a world authority. The architects also recognize that nations are reluctant to surrender their independence to a world body but they discovered that a group of nations could be persuaded to give up substantial authority gradually to a regional alliance.
Former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski explains this strategy:
”We cannot leap into world government in one quick step. The precondition for eventual globalization is progressive regionalisation. Because thereby we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units”.
Populations of the proposed regional alliances rarely give much concern to these new institutions because their initial authority seems small. But overtime this authority expands and they will get under a world government.
EUROPEAN UNION – THE MODEL OF REGIONALISATION
The model for progressive regionalisation can be found in the development of the European Union. The movement for a united Europe achieved its first victory on the formations of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951. That treaty merges the coal-and steel industry of six nations under a single regional authority. In 1957 these nations agreed to expand this institution to the common market of Europe. At that time, citizens of these independent nations were told that the purpose were only to eliminate mutual trade barriers so that a huge prosperity zone would develop. Belgian prime minister Paul Henry Spaak suggested to his fellow EU-architects that:
”The most effective way to disguise their projects political purpose is to conceal it behind a pretense that it is concerned only with economic co-operation, based on dismantling trade barriers: a common market”.
In the following decades this strategy was identified for what it really was. Bernard Connolly former Senior official in the European Commission said:
”It has now become clear to us that what we thought was a common market is nothing more than a project to create a federal superstate in which our sovereignty, Britain’s national identity, would be extinguished”.
But it wasn’t only britain’s sovereignty that was compromised. By 1993 15 nations were persuaded to take the next step and form the European Union. By 2005 a total of 25 nations had submitted to EU control. These once independent countries are now being asked to ratify an EU-constitution that would formalize their subservience. The EU-model has been so succesful in absorbing the authority from independent states that internationalists are replicating this formula around the world. In january 2004 press from Islamabad reports:
”The nations of South Asia agreed friday on the framework for a free trade zone that would encompass one-fifth of the world’s population. The trade agreement would allow harmonisation of tariffs and the establishment of a regional development bank”.
Only months later a newspaper stated:
”Southeast asian nations and China signed a treaty to create the worlds biggest free trade area. A critical step in their vision of a trade block to rival Europe and North America”.
NAFTA – A NEW INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM
Here in the western hemisphere the architects of world government are also to replicate what happens i Europe. Following the EU-model they are working to get nations together on this side of the globe under one regional authority. Although the process is under way many americans have little idea of what actually unfolding. The first milestone in the process was the formations of the North Americans Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The plan was negotiated under George Bush Sr. President Bill Clinton with help of key republicans successfully pushed NAFTA thorough congress in 1993. Although many politicians had a vague idea of that the agreement would actually affect trade between U.S., Mexico and Canada, only a few recognized NAFTA for what it really is. One of them who knew was Henry Kissinger.
”NAFTA is not a traditional free trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system”.
Washington Post wrote 1993:
NAFTA lays the foundation for a continental common market, as many of its architects privately acknowledge. The agreement creates a variety of continental institutions that are, in aggregate, an embryonic NAFTA government”.
Only a year after the formation of NAFTA Bill Clinton succeeded in pulling the U.S. into the world trade organisation – WTO. The WTO would establish global policies that NAFTA was expected to implement. Immediately there after Clinton hosted the 1994 Summit of the Americas. Here the proposal of the creation of a free trade of the America (FTAA) was formally announced. With the initial exception of Cuba the FTAA would expand NAFTA to include all nations in the western hemisphere. For years the FTAA-architects developed their plan below the surface of public attention. However, a few planners and supportes would reveal their true intentions. Speaking privately mexican president Vincente Fox declared:
”Eventually our long-range objective is to establish with the United States but also with Canada an ensemble of connections and institutions similar to those created by the European Union”.
Fox statement drove the attention of the Wall Street Journal.
Robert Bartley from Wall Street Journal:
”Reformist mexican president Vincente Fox raises eyebrows with his suggestion that over a decade or two NAFTA should evolve into something like the European Union with open borders, for not only and investments but also people. He can rest assure that there is one voice north of the Rio Grande that supports his vision to with, this newspaper”.
Today many prominent leaders are working to implement the EU model in their hemisphere. Soon after assuming the presidency in 2000, George W Bush Jr following the Clinton administrations footsteps would commit his administration to completing the negotiations for the FTAA.
George W Bush Jr:
”My administration will work closely with the congress on this goal and take another step to complete the free trade area of the Americas.”
Publicly the FTAA is promoted as a plan merely to expand trade between 34 nations. But as with NAFTA and EU, trade issues is only the pretext for o disguised attack on the independence of nations. The FTAA is also connected to the House of World Order through the United Nations. For several years before our final FTAA agreement was even completed, the UN was already supplying funding and technical assistance for the FTAA administrative base in Mexico.
