    Transatlantic Union ?

    Is there a plan to merge North America & Europe into one superstate? We already have the SPP in the planning stage; And there are those within the power structure of the Eu who want to expand into the Middle East & North Africa. Now I've discovered another organization called the "Transatlantic Policy Network." It is a private organization, headed by Peter Sutherland, Chairman and Managing Director, Goldman Sachs International and Chairman, British Petroleum Company plc. & by Robert S. Strauss, Partner, Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, L.L.P., former US Ambassador to Russia, former US Special Trade Representative, and former Special Envoy to the Middle East. In addition several members of the US Congress & of the European Parliment are members; & .

    The goal of this organization;

    As indicated in its 10-point, 10-year Action Plan for Strengthening Transatlantic Partnership, TPN's agenda for the coming years is to promote and support actions to complete a transatlantic market linked to a strengthened political and security relationship adapted to the needs of the 21 st century. To accomplish this, TPN believes that the EU and US will need to adapt the existing transatlantic institutional framework to take account of the evolution of our common purposes and priorities, allowing issues to drive the framework, rather than the other way around.

    TPN has proposed, with support from Resolutions taken by the European Parliament and the US House of Representatives, that EU and US leaders come to agreement on the major elements of a new, formal “Transatlantic Partnership Agreement.” Such an agreement would build on the 1995 New Transatlantic Agenda and reflect proposals made in TPN's Strategy to Strengthen Transatlantic Partnership. As part of this process, TPN would like EU and US leaders to:

    • focus the annual EU-US summit process to provide strategic direction and impetus to the transatlantic partnership, and develop communications with the NATO summit process as well

    • institute regular informal EU-US consultation at ministerial level in advance of EU-US summits, supported by permanent joint policy planning

    • strengthen the institutional structure for ongoing transatlantic political dialogue, building on the evolving Transatlantic Legislators Dialogue (TLD) between Members of the European Parliament and the US Congress , possibly into a Transatlantic Assembly.

    All members have been encouraged to participate in a process that has gathered steady momentum in the past few years, and is increasingly focused on global challenges facing the transatlantic partners. Task Force meetings in Europe and the US discuss ideas and put forward proposals for adding political and economic substance to the Transatlantic Partnership while also dealing with the substantive issues and problems associated with cooperation between the EU and NATO (see Members Area for details).

    As before, this internal debate is enriched by research and background papers produced by the academic institutions cooperating with TPN.

    TPN will continue to offer its recommendations of how to strengthen Transatlantic Partnership in the years ahead, in ways that will satisfy the political, economic and security needs of both sides. Annual assessments through bench marking of the 10 year action plan outlined in the Strategy to Strengthen Transatlantic Partnership will help this process.

    It sounds like a plan for political union between North America & Europe on the road to a World Union. Though it does not include Canada & Mexico, based on current trends it is hard to see how they could be excluded from this scheme. Discussions about security are another way of saying an intergovernment agency to take of these matters. Unelected & unaccountable. In addition to politicians, executives of global corporations are also involved. The goals of this organization are the same that lead to the creation of the European Union. If allowed to proceed it could mean by the year 2020 free movements of peoples within the Transatlantic Union. Mexicans could go to Eastern Europe to replace the people who left to go to England & Germany. Turks & Morroccans could settler in the US & Canada. A great mixing of peoples & a further erosion of nation-states built around a common ethnicity.

    The Transatlantic Policy Network is a private organization. But it is one that is directing future national & economic policies that well effect everyone in Europe & North America, for the benefit of a few elites & to the dispossession of the overwhelming majority.

    Unless if the new superstate is called "America," and its capital at Washington DC, I doubt that will happen.
