DOBBS: Robert Pastor, you were co-chairman of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations, and in this report titled "Building a North American Community" the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, Richard Haass states, "The Task Force`s central recommendation is establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security of community, the boundaries of which would be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter." [...]
DOBBS: Why would you think about, just out of curiosity, a common security perimeter when the United States does not have secure ports nor does it have anything approaching secure borders?
PASTOR: Well, it`s precisely because our ports are not secure and our borders are not secure that we need to find not only better ways to do that but also better ways to turn our two neighbors into partners to enhance our security and to enhance our prosperity as well.
In the interview of a few minutes length, Pastor used the word "enhance" five times, as in "enhance our security." How will outsourcing our national security to Mexico serve to "enhance" it 151 and what does that mean anyway? I would rather our security were genuinely strengthened around our own borders instead of being made more attractive in some globalist sense.
Pastor apparently expected his smoothy tapdance to make Americans forget that Mexico is nothing but one big headache. Like many elites, he underestimates the passion citizens have that America remain a sovereign nation and not become the partner in a shotgun marriage with the third-world narco-state. There have been numerous news reports of terrorists using Mexico as an easy gateway to the US, and Mexico cannot be considered a friend in any way.
At least the House has a bill in the hopper expressing disapproval of the North American Union, the major element of the normalized treason common in today`s Washington.
