Canada wants to join AUKUS alliance, but …


Canada is interested in the Australian, United Kingdom, and USA alliance called AUKUS:

That agreement between Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States will establish a nuclear submarine force for Australia. It also facilitates cooperative high-tech research. AUKUS’s underlying purpose is to boost Western defense capabilities in the face of China’s threatThe Globe and Mail reported on Monday that Justin Trudeau’s government wants to become AUKUS’s newest member. Asked about that possibility, Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand stated that “Canada is highly interested in furthering cooperation on AI, quantum computing, and other advanced technologies with a defense nexus with our closest allies. Our ties with our Five Eyes allies are strong, and indeed we remain interested in furthering cooperation in AI and other innovation efforts with our allies.”  …

It’s likely that Canada wants to join AUKUS for two reasons that have little to do with China — namely, to access economically valuable technologies and to benefit from the diplomatic prestige that participation would entail.  …

Trudeau’s Canada is no longer a reliable U.S. ally. Alongside New Zealand, Canada’s current government makes it a weak link in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance. This weakness isn’t simply measured by Trudeau’s policy toward China — it also takes root in his disdain for burden-sharing. While the U.S. has concerns over the U.K. and Australia’s resolve in the face of Chinese threats, those nations are at least boosting their respective military capabilities. Canada is doing nothing of the sort. And don’t take my word for it — take that of the Canadian defense minister.

Canada is one of the lowest defense-spending members of NATO, allocating nowhere near the alliance’s 2%-of-GDP minimum spending target. As the security analyst Patrick Fox observed, this neglect lends a special arrogance to Canada’s request that it now be trusted to join AUKUS. Last year, however, defense minister Anand claimed that she would present “aggressive options” to boost defense spending toward the 2% target. But when the latest budget was unveiled in March, the numbers testified to a different reality. Canada’s defense spending is likely to see further trimming, even in critical areas such as procurement.

Canada seems to figure that the USA will protect it. New Zealand seems to believe the same thing–though if Canada joins AUKUS, New Zealand may feel the need to do so. Australia sees more immediate and substantial threats from China and is a more-willing military ally. The Brits also are more interested in a real military alliance.

That said, the USA will NOT be able to defend them in the reasonably near future as it is prophesied to be conquered per Daniel 11:39. Its British-descended allies will be conquered as well, despite hoping that the USA will be able to protect them.

Many in the USA itself are overly focused on China. Last Fall, Voice of America reported the following:

China Remains Top Threat in New US National Defense Strategy

October 27, 2022

China remains the top challenge to U.S. national security interests, while Russia remains an “acute” threat as it continues its brutal war in Ukraine, according to the Pentagon’s newly released National Defense Strategy.

“The [People’s Republic of China] is the only competitor out there with both the intent to reshape the international order and, increasingly, a power to do so,” Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin told reporters Thursday at the Pentagon.

A senior defense official, speaking to reporters about the new defense strategy on the condition of anonymity, said China continues to gain more “capability to systematically challenge the United States across the board: militarily, economically, technologically, diplomatically.”

The “China challenge,” according to Austin, has led to boosting defense capabilities across all warfighting domains, especially space and cyberspace, to make it clear to any potential adversary that “the cost of aggression against the United States or our allies and partners far outweighs any conceivable gains.”

The unclassified strategy report comes as both China and Russia have escalated aggressions against their neighbors. China repeatedly threatens to control Taiwan, by force if necessary, and Russia invaded Ukraine in February and continues to attack Ukrainian towns and cities with missiles and even Iranian-made kamikaze drones.  …

Other threats mentioned in the 2022 National Defense Strategy include North Korea, Iran and global violent extremists.

Secretary of Defense Austin is wrong when he asserted that “the U.S. Government and our Allies and partners around the world, are well positioned to meet the challenges of this decisive decade.” The USA may be gone within the next ten years (watch also Is the USA prophesied to be destroyed by 2028?).

A reader of this page, who also read the National Defense Strategy, pointed out the following about it:

There is absolutely “ZERO” concern for the EU having any kind of ability to attack the USA, or being any kind of threat within the next 10 yrs.

But, as the reader otherwise indicated to me, certainly Europe is the threat to the USA–and yes, most likely within the next ten years.

There have been repeated calls for the USA to focus more on China’s military capabilities.

Notice the following warning in my book Biden-Harris: Prophecies and Destruction:

By focusing too much on threats from China and almost always considering the Europeans as some type of allies, a Biden-Harris Administration is currently not expected to reverse the Asian ‘pivot’ strategy of the Obama-Biden Administration. Unless that changes, this pivot will help result in destruction of the U.S.A. (Thiel B. Biden-Harris: Prophecies and Destruction. Nazarene Books, 2021)

Yes, the USA is pivoting towards China and that has not escaped the notice of the Europeans. Here was something related to France and the AUKUS in 2021:

September 17, 2021

“France’s position for a very long time … has been to say that the U.S. is an ally, but the U.S. is pivoting away from Europe and cannot fully be trusted,” said Georgina Wright, head of the Europe Program at Institut Montaigne, a nonprofit transpartisan think tank based in Paris.

Now, France can feel vindicated in that stance, she said, with Biden proving that “when (the United States) makes a decision, they will go ahead with it and they won’t think twice about their allies.” …

Wright said America’s perceived indifference to how the AUKUS pact would affect France demonstrated a very “America First approach,” with the country already facing accusations of maintaining that approach with its hasty withdrawal out of Afghanistan.

The Europeans were already angry about the Snowden leaks during the Obama-Biden Administration, their exclusion from the Five Eyes alliance (which is the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand), and the fact of Donald Trump’s presidency.

As USA leaders continue to make public statements about perceived threats from China, the Europeans have more and more concluded that they have to defend themselves and be able to function militarily in a manner independent of the USA.

Related to the AUKUS deal, we put out the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


AUKUS sparking European military

In September 2021, US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a new military partnership called AUKUS. This announcement upset the French and the European Union, which is not part of it. Could AUKUS be another spark for the Europeans to develop their own joint military? What have European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and former German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel called for? Could having the Europeans increase their military capacity and technology and be dangerous? Is the European King of the North, also called the King of Assyria, prophesied to destroy the USA (Daniel 11:39) and its British-descended allies? What could stop that? Is national or personal repentance possible? Do the nations need Jesus or military alliances?

Here is a link to our video: AUKUS sparking European military.

And since then, we have seen Russia’s “special military operation” into Ukraine. It may be that Europeans thought that the USA would have prevented that–but it did not.

This has been the stimulus to get many political leaders in Europe to actually take bolder steps towards an independent and stronger European military. Related to that, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put together the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel::


Is the European Beast Growing Horns?

Does the conflict between Russia and Ukraine have prophetic ramifications? What about Ezekiel 38? Are we seeing a ‘historic shift’ in Europe to move towards more unity? What about non-EU nations like Sweden and Switzerland? Is Germany’s announcement to double its military spending to 100 million euros a big deal? Does the Bible tell of changes coming to Europe for it to rise up as a Babylonian unity successful military power? What about the United States of America and its British-descended allies? Could USA sanctions against Russia, including SWIFT restrictions, decrease international demand for USA dollars and cause inflation? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more in this video.

Here is a link to our video: Is the European Beast Growing Horns?

With the USA publicly alarmed about China’s military and economic capabilities, it will pivot more towards Asia and further away from Europe. Though it will make some efforts towards the Europeans, they will not be placated, Europe will end up with a “great army” (Daniel 11:25) and “many ships” (Daniel 11:40).

The Bible shows that after the coming European King of the North Beast power conquers the USA (Daniel 11:39) it will conquer an upcoming Middle East confederation (Daniel 11:40-43) as well. The Book of Lamentations points to the USA being defeated by its “friends” (Lamentation 1:1-2).

While the Europeans see threats and issues from China, they are more and more concerned that the USA is less interested in defending them. This will end in disaster for the USA.

The European power will be considered, for a time, as the leading military power by the world (cf. Revelation 13:3-4).

Biblical prophecies will be fulfilled.
