Lt.-Gen. Walter Natynczyk, new Canadian Chief of Defence Staff - a US Puppet -PEJ News ­ Joan Russow - Global Compliance Research Project.

Lt.-Gen. Walter Natynczyk was groomed at the US Army War College whose "ultimate purpose of land power is to support US national objectives in a joint, interagency and multinational environment; he was made Deputy Commander of the Multi-National Corps (Iraq) in Operation Iraqi Freedom [in a war in which Canada refused to overtly participate].

www.PEJ.org
GROOMED AT THE US ARMY WAR COLLEGE
In his biography, it is mentioned that he attended the US Army War College. The purpose of this college is "to support US national objectives in a joining, interagency and multinational environment".

Here are excerpts from the US Army War College:

Program Overview

"The USAWC prepares students to assume strategic leadership responsibilities. Upon program completion, many graduates begin operating in the national strategic or theater strategic environment - either directly or as advisers to the senior leadership of the Armed Forces, the Department of Defense, other governmental agencies, or in foreign militaries. A select number of graduates eventually will assume the most senior leadership positions within their organizations, leading them at the strategic level.

"Students are the centerpiece of the US Army War College. Our mission is to prepare selected military, civilian, and international leaders for the responsibilities of strategic leadership and to educate them on the development and employment of land power. Without doubt, the ultimate purpose of land power is to support US national objectives in a joint, interagency and multinational environment. Students must be thoroughly versed in those competencies and the US Army War College curriculum supports this requirement. When they graduate, our students will be prepared for leadership positions in the national, strategic, or theater strategic environment, or as advisors to the senior leadership of the Armed Forces, the Department of Defense, other government agencies, or in foreign militaries."

Academic Programs
"Students attend Senior Service Colleges only after extensive and highly successful performance at the direct and organizational levels of leadership. A small number may have worked within the strategic arena, but most will not have extensively practiced leadership at the strategic level. For most of our students, therefore, the strategic level of leadership will be a new, unfamiliar environment that is much less structured and certain than the conditions they have previously experienced. Students, however, will have demonstrated the potential for successful future service within the strategic arena."

"Successful performance in this new realm will require students to break some old habits, hone existing critical skills, and develop new competencies. To succeed in the strategic environment will require these future senior leaders to think differently than they have in the past. To that end, the USAWC curriculum is rooted in the theory and application of defense, and military art and science - the curriculum emphasizes the process by which the United States formulates National Military Strategy and the factors essential to develop and refine military strategy in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous, and interdependent post-Cold War world.
"Both the resident and distance education programs adhere to this paradigm, although the delivery systems are different. The resident program is a ten-month course of study, while the distance education program is taught over two years and includes two two-week-long resident courses. Both programs comply with the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff Officer Professional Military Education Policy (OPMEP), adhere to Army training and education guidance, and seek to accomplish the same institutional learning objectives." (From the American War College web site).

INVOLVMENT OF LT.-GEN. WALTER NATYNCZYK IN MULTINATIONAL FORCE IN IRAQ

While Canada claimed officially to be involved in the US-led invasion of Iraq, Canada was definitely covertly involved. In 2003, the Canadian Liberal government stated that it would only participate in the invasion of Iraq if the invasion were sanctioned by the UN Security Council. Canada worked hard at the UN on a UN Security Council Resolution which would have delayed the invasion by two weeks, but given UN Security Council legitimacy to the invasion of Iraq (2003). Canada also supported the US position that "serious consequences" in the November 8 resolution did entail the option of military intervention. Canada has also covertly supported the invasion of Iraq through high-level commands and naval patrols.

In January 2004, the Corps was deployed to Baghdad and Natynczyk served there as Planning Officer and later was Deputy Commander of the Multi-National Corps (Iraq).

While the Canadian government claimed that it was not involved in Iraq, it appears that Walter Natynczyk was playing a significant role in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

AWARD FOR BEING IN A WAR THAT CANADA NEVER SANCTIONED

Not only has Canada been covertly involved in Operation Iraqi Freedom through the grooming of a Canadian military leader at the American War College to participate in a leading role in Operation Iraqi Freedom, but also Canada bestowed the Governor General's Award, the Meritorious Service Decoration on Major-General Walter Natynczyk who led the Corps' 10 separate brigades, consisting of more than 35,000 soldiers stationed throughout the Iraq Theatre of Operations", in a war in which Canada supposedly did not participate.

"Major-General Walter J. Natynczyk, O.M.M., M.S.C., C.D.
Ottawa and Kingston, Ontario and Winnipeg, Manitoba
Meritorious Service Cross (2006)

Major-General Natynczyk is recognized for his outstanding leadership and professionalism while deployed as Deputy Commanding General of the Multi-National Corps during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM. From January 2004 to January 2005, Major-General Natynczyk led the Corps' 10 separate brigades, consisting of more than 35,000 soldiers stationed throughout the Iraq Theatre of Operations. He also oversaw the planning and execution of all Corps-level combat support and combat service support operations. His pivotal role in the development of numerous plans and operations resulted in a tremendous contribution by the Multi-National Corps to Operation IRAQI FREEDOM, and has brought great credit to the Canadian Forces and to Canada."

CANADA'S CONTINUED MILITARY SUBSERVIENCE TO AND INTEGRATION WITH THE US

Instead, Canada should chart an independent Foreign Policy by withdrawing immediately from Afghanistan, by reducing the military budget, by refusing to participate in the US "war on terror", by respecting the international rule of law and international peremptory norms and promoting true security.
True security is not "collective security" or "human security" which has been extended to "humanitarian intervention" and used along with the "responsibility to protect" with a view to justifying military intervention in other states. True security is "common security", not as defined in the SPP, but in documents prepared by Olaf Palme, and which entrench peremptory norms:

*to promote and fully guarantee respect for human rights including labour rights, civil and political rights, social and cultural rights - right to food, right to housing, right to universally accessible, not-for-profit health care system, right to education and social justice; to this end -
* to enable socially equitable and environmentally sound employment, and ensure the right to development [as per Convention];
* to achieve a state of peace, social justice and disarmament; through reallocation of military expenses and eradication of poverty;
* to create a global structure that respects the rule of law and
* to ensure the preservation and protection of the environment, respect the inherent worth of nature beyond human purpose, reduce the ecological footprint and move away from the current model of over-consumptive development.

The last thing Canada needs is to laud and give power to yet another puppet of the United States.
