NATO: “We Want To Rule A Euromediterranean-American Union”

The  truth about the EUs deception to its citizens seen from the NATO
"We deliberately refrain from making proposals for EU reform in the same degree of detail as we did for NATO. This is for two reasons: first, a new treaty to replace the doomed ‘constitution’ has been negotiated and is presently being smuggled in, thus avoiding the risk of having European voters consulted on the matter.
Second, new proposals, such as the French President’s idea of  establishing a ‘group of wise men’ and his proposal to create a Mediterranean zone of cooperation, are currently on the table. The outcome of these processes/initiatives will change the EU"!!!

In a [1] new strategy paper: “Towards a Grand Strategy for an Uncertain World - Renewing Transatlantic Partnership” a few days before the NATO-summit in Bucharest on April 2-4, 2008,

5 former NATO Generals, among them the world state supporter Klaus Naumann, a member of Gorbachev´s "[2] World Political Forum"  present a new security strategy for the NATO, as recently reported on the very informative German blog, [3] nwo-fighter. And their paper is revolutionary. Not just because they advocate[4] preemptive nuclear attacks without UN consent. The military aspect of the “Grand Strategy” of the generals is just a pretext for a much wider political agenda:

Political and strategic fusion of the Euro-Mediterranean/Mediterranean Union and North America into another UNION – a step of the New World order towards the World State with the UN as a reinforced institutional umbrella.

[5] This is Trilateralism
”It would be a dramatic mistake not to act now to seek a new order and save as much as possible of the international order – an order that is based on good governance and democratic rule, and in which the rule of law prevails. First, whatever the future may bring, it is essential that the West redefines itself and its role in the world. A first step would be to mentally adjust the map we all carry in our heads. We should no longer talk about two pillars, Europe and America, deepening cooperation between one another.

The [6] manifesto is likely to be discussed at a NATO summit in Bucharest in April
and has been written following discussions with active commanders and policymakers, many of whom are unable or unwilling to publicly air their views.
It has been presented to the Pentagon in Washington and to Nato's secretary general, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer

Enlargement of NATO and the EU has created a common democratic space, which runs from Finland to Alaska. Building this space into a community with a sense of purpose in the world is both our most urgent and our long-term task.

..”governments are rapidly losing control of events.
None of the actors – be they government, business or NGOs – seem to have a comprehensive view of what is going on. They are fragmented and incapable of acting in a coordinated way towards a common vision. A redefinition of the terms of international discourse would be an essential first step on the long road towards building a community – if not an alliance – of the democratic nations”.

Existing international structures must adapt to meet new needs.
In a world of private capital, some, such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, are playing a steadily decreasing role. There is no adequately functioning international security organisation, and international organisations such as the EU do not yet fully appreciate that they must embrace the security domain as well.
What is needed are international organisations that have all the instruments of politics at their disposal ."

The five commanders argue that the west's values and way of life are under threat, but the west is struggling to summon the will to defend them. The key threats are:  Political fanaticism and religious fundamentalism: The "dark side" of globalisation, meaning international terrorism, organised crime and the spread of weapons of mass destruction. Besides, climate change and energy security, entailing a contest for resources and potential "environmental" migration on a mass scale.  The weakening of the nation state as well as of organisations such as the UN, NATO and the EU.

The Grand Strategy
"We see strategy as the application  of the means to achieve a political objective; and consequently, a grand strategy as the art of using all elements of power (of either a nation or an alliance of nations) to accomplish a politically agreed aim, and the objectives of a nation
or of an alliance of nations in peace and war.
A grand strategy comprises the carefully coordinated and fully integrated use of all political, economic, military, cultural, social, moral, spiritual and psychological power available.
We also firmly believe that one can no longer win in an armed conflict simply by killing or capturing as many of the enemy as possible or by just destroying his power base. Non-military means must be part of an integrated strategy: one in which non-military means are coordinated and deployed with maximum precision, concision and integration – the way a military mission should be conducted. The possibilities here relate greatly to the use of escalation. Recent history is replete with examples of possible escalation by non-military means being squandered because of imprecise objectives and disagreement at the highest level"

National governments and the EU are too weak to meet future challenges
”We firmly believe that our vulnerability grows the longer we stick to the traditional format of cabinet responsibilities. The future we are facing requires more, not less, international integration; but as the national state is – and will remain for the foreseeable future – the core of decision making, we must stress that governments need to think about adapting the organisation of government, as well as about dramatic changes in national decision making” .

The UN
"We recognise that the UN is the only body or organisation capable of authorising the use of force in cases other than immediate self-defence. We wish to strengthen this role, but we also state that, in addition to the obvious case of self-defence in the absence of a UN Security Council (UNSC) authorisation, we regard the use of force as being legitimate if there is no time to get the UNSC involved, We keenly acknowledge that the UN plays – and will continue to play – a significant, indeed often primary, role in the arena of postintervention stabilisation.

[7] The decision to launch an operation will remain with the Security Council.
UN Security Council authorisation is also mandatory for all post-intervention stabilisation operations. Simultaneously, it should designate a lead organisation or a lead nation to direct subordinate UN bodies, such as the UNHCR, the IAEA, the FAO and others, to cooperate in the theatre of operations. We therefore propose that the UN should arrange for a ‘unity of command’ in all post-intervention operations also liaison teams between the UN and major international organisations, such as NATO, the African Union, the EU, ASEAN and the OSCE, and the introduction of regular situation briefings of the UNSC by these regional organisations.

Unification across the Atlantic
US, NATO and the EU often have largely identical political interests, even though they occasionally pursue different objectives and have different strategic outlooks, responsibilities and capabilities. They are signatories to quite a few international treaties and agreements that tie them together, but their political coordination and cooperation need to be improved.  Should it turn out to be a functioning arrangement, then it will become the body that could – and indeed should – be tasked with developing the necessary instruments for the foundation of a transatlantic forum of cooperation, mutual assistance and security with a hitherto unknown degree of integration, i.e. a new transatlantic charter for peace, security and stability. 
Climate change and other very long-term issues that will impact on all the nations involved could be raised at such a forum, whereas they are unlikely – or less likely – to be raised at the institutional level.

We suggest that NATO should develop a grand strategy that encompasses much more than the military domain : NATO should address its biggest shortcoming at this time – its lack of means other than military options

The EU is to submit itself to NATO
As such an alliance serves the strategic interests of both sides, the US and the EU, we propose, as a first step towards a new and wider transatlantic bargain, the establishment of a US– EU–NATO steering directorate at the highest political level, based on existing treaties and agreements, such as the US–EU Agreement, the Washington Treaty and the EU.  Thus, EU deliberations would become discussions of how to implement a decision that NATO has taken.  The steering directorate would also be able to provide ideas and considerations for other bodies, not least to put things on the agenda of the G8, for that body to consider further.

Comments: France seems to be o its way [8] back to NATOs military cooperation due to better understanding with the UK. This could "dramatically improve relations between NATO and the EU".
The above is a take over of power - well-known from Nazi-Germany and numerous banana republics.
