NATO at War… on the World

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev attends Munich Security Conference

Can we please just dispense with the nonsense and talk about how things really are. The US-led NATO military alliance is at war with the world. And Russia is the main force holding this criminal organization at bay.

Listening to various Western political leaders at the recent Munich Security Conference is both laughable and cringe-making. We heard from the likes of US top diplomat John Kerry and British foreign secretary Philip Hammond holding forth on issues of international law and peace, while NATO’s Jens Stoltenberg and General Philip Breedlove assured that there was no Cold War.

The EU’s foreign affairs chief Federica Morgherini also made the stupendous denial that the world was not witnessing a new Cold War towards Russia, as did German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

Who do these people think we are? If they are stupid enough to live in denial that’s up to them. But surely the rest of the thinking human race can see the world for what it is: a place where the United States and its various allies are running amok, making a mockery of international law, waging wars, covertly and overtly, against anyone who stands in their way.This is exactly the sordid scenario that Russian president Vladimir Putin warned about back in 2007 when he addressed the Munich conference. Putin said it would end in tears, from lawlessness and state-sponsored terrorism, instigated and justified by Western leaders who hypocritically speak as if they are paragons of virtue.

It truly is sickening to be lectured by Western warmongers and their apologists. Russia’s prime minister Dmitry Medvedev and foreign minister Sergei Lavrov were probably the only sane voices at the Munich conference this year. Both reiterated the danger to world peace from NATO’s warmongering – and yet both were scoffed at by their Western counterparts for speaking the truth.In Syria, let’s cut to the chase. The alleged pro-democracy uprising that the Western media have been spinning for the last five years is this: it’s a covert war of aggression on a sovereign country for regime change. NATO powers and their regional client regimes have weaponized the proxy assault forces who are comprised of myriad terrorist mercenaries.

That is standard operating procedure for the United States and its NATO allies, when outright conventional military attack on countries is politically unpalatable.

NATO member Turkey is now openly firing into Syrian territory. How’s that for the organization that claims to maintain global security?

We should not even dignify Ankara’s claims for its violation of international law. The fact is that it is attacking a neighboring country with artillery barrages. This is simply aggression, as the Syrian government has protested this week to the United Nations Security Council.

The irony of Turkey violating Syria’s sovereignty at the very same time that NATO leaders were pontificating in Munich about “security” is too much for words.

The irony of the US and Britain lecturing Russia over its legal military intervention in Syria to defend a state from NATO-backed subversion using terrorists is sickening. Doubly sickening considering that Washington and London have been actively assisting in the Saudi bombing of Yemen for the past year during which every possible civilian center, including hospitals, schools, family homes and markets have been struck with horrendous death toll.NATO member Turkey and the US-British client regime Saudi Arabia are threatening to send military ground forces into Syria. That threatened invasion – itself an act of aggression – is to salvage the Western-backed war for regime change in Syria, which Russia’s five-month-old intervention is brilliantly thwarting.

Western media – the brainwashing system that it is – will of course tell lies and distort, reducing the bigger picture to the nonsensical fragment of daily events, which are, in turn, riven with fabrications and omissions. Like the US military spokesman Colonel Steve Warren’s claim last week that Russian warplanes bombed two hospitals in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo. Russia clarified that claim by saying it had no warplanes in the city, and that it was in fact two US aircraft that carried out bombing raids.

Let’s not even go there: the claim, counterclaim and endless minutiae.

That is only letting other people dictate the narrative to suit their ends.

The fact is Syria has been brought to near-destruction by a US-led covert war that was long in the making before the official eruption of violence in mid-March 2011. The war was prosecuted with terrorist proxies who are now being destroyed by Russian air power in combination with Syrian army and Iranian and Hezbollah ground forces.

None of this should be surprising. The US and Britain destroyed Iraq and Afghanistan with over a million dead. The US and its NATO allies destroyed Libya.The US and its European partners tried to destroy Ukraine with a regime change operation that installed a Neo-Nazi coup in February 2014, which then proceeded to wage a war on the people of eastern Ukraine, simply because the latter refused to recognize the impostor-junta that the West orchestrated.

The historical consistency is that NATO was formed in 1949 to wage war on the Soviet Union – the real victor of the Second World War against fascism in Europe. The powers behind the rise of Nazi Germany and European fascism were the Americans and the British in an attempt to keep the world safe for capitalism. NATO just took up where Nazi Germany failed.

Why, after the Cold War officially ended 25 years ago, does this execrable NATO outfit still exist? Why is it relentlessly militarizing Europe and making hysterical warmongering claims against Russia?

Russian premier Medvedev is right. There is a Cold War afoot. Even though others at Munich pathetically deny the reality. The truth is that the Cold War never actually ended. It has just been extended.

NATO’s covert war in Syria is now an open war with the organization’s Turkey doing the shelling. Oh yeah, Washington may be telling Ankara to tone down the aggression, simply because it is a public relations fiasco. But don’t let that deceive. Turkey and Saudi Arabia are just acting out the very same aggression that Washington and its British and French partners-in-crime have been doing for the past five years.Let’s just say it. NATO is a warmongering machine that promotes Western hegemony in the world. It has got nothing to do with security unless you mean security for US-led capitalism. It craves a unipolar world of dominance where all countries must prostrate themselves before the masters.NATO is merely the official club formed by the Western capitalist powers to give themselves a veneer of legality and morality.

Russia is the prime target in NATO’s wider war to subjugate the planet. US planners said so in the early 1990s when they candidly urged that the US and its European vassals should not tolerate any opposition to capitalist world domination by the financial oligarchy based in Wall Street and its various European offshoots.

NATO’s war against Russia – not quite fully-fledged yet in open warfare – is really this: NATO is at war with the rest of the world.
Everyone, including ordinary American and Europeans, is in its firing line.

    NATO driving us towards World War 3

    1 day ago

    The continuation of NATO, after its counterpart the Warsaw Pact ended in 1991, is an insanity that’s driving the world inexorably toward World War 3.

    The trigger for that war is now being set by NATO member Turkey, which wants to invade neighboring Syria, and which has the support of the Gulf Cooperation Council (including the world’s biggest buyer of US weapons, Saudi Arabia) who are massing troops and weapons on Syria’s northern border, in preparation for an invasion southward into Syria.

    Once they invade Syria from Turkish territory, it

    • 350,000 Saudi soldiers ready for Syrian invasion

      350,000 soldiers, 20,000 tanks, 2,450 warplanes and 460 military helicopters are massing in northern Saudi Arabia for a military exercise that is being called “Northern Thunder”. According to the official announcement, forces are being contributed by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, Sudan, Kuwait, Morocco, Pakistan, Tunisia, Oman, Qatar, Malaysia and several other nations.

      This exercise will reportedly last for 18 days, and during that time the airspace over northern Saudi Arabia will be closed to air traffic. This will be the largest military exercise in the history of the region, and it comes amid rumors that Saudi Arabia and Turkey are preparing for a massive ground invasion of Syria.

      “Ergün Poyraz, in his 2007 book Children of Moses, wrote that Turkey’ Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and his wife, are crypto-Jews, who secretly work with Israeli intelligence.

      Erdogan was elected President of Turkey early 2014. He previously served as the Prime Minister of Turkey from 2003 to 2014 and as the Mayor of İstanbul from 1994 to 1998.

      In 2007, Poyraz was arrested and eventually sentenced to 29 years in prison.Poyraz claims that Erdoğan came to power as part of a Zionist conspiracy devised by Turkey’s JİTEM, a secret government intelligence unit.

      JİTEM is believed to be behind many bombings, attacks and assassinations, and is believed to be linked to Ergenekon, which was part of the CIA’s Operation Gladio.”

        “What will surprise those who may already be surprised about the Dönmeh connection to Turkey, is the Dönmeh connection to the House of Saud in Saudi Arabia.

        An Iraqi Mukhabarat (General Military Intelligence Directorate) Top Secret report, “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots,” dated September 2002 and released on March 13, 2008, by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency in translated English form, points to the Dönmeh roots of the founder of the Saudi Wahhabi sect of Islam, Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab. Much of the information is gleaned from the memoirs of a “Mr. Humfer,” (as spelled in the DIA report, “Mr. Hempher” as spelled the historical record) a British spy who used the name “Mohammad,” claimed to be an Azeri who spoke Turkish, Persian, and Arabic and who made contact with Wahhab in the mid-18th century with a view of creating a sect of Islam that would eventually bring about an Arab revolt against the Ottomans and pave the way for the introduction of a Jewish state in Palestine. Humfer’s memoirs are recounted by the Ottoman writer and admiral Ayyub Sabri Pasha in his 1888 work, “The Beginning and Spreading of Wahhabism.”

        In his book, The Dönmeh Jews, D. Mustafa Turan writes that Wahhab’s grandfather, Tjen Sulayman, was actually Tjen Shulman, a member of the Jewish community of Basra, Iraq. The Iraqi intelligence report also states that in his book, The Dönmeh Jews and the Origin of the Saudi Wahhabis, Rifat Salim Kabar reveals that Shulman eventually settled in the Hejaz, in the village of al-Ayniyah what is now Saudi Arabia, where his grandson founded the Wahhabi sect of Islam. The Iraqi intelligence report states that Shulman had been banished from Damascus, Cairo, and Mecca for his “quackery.” In the village, Shulman sired Abdul Wahhab. Abdel Wahhab’s son, Muhammad, founded modern Wahhabism.”

        Turkey has been a Wahabbi crypto jewish masonic state almost since the beginning of time. For the most part it is Israel. So no one should be surprised they act like Israel.

        It is the same in Saudi Arabia. The greater Israel project speeds on with attempts at present to destroy Syria, Iran and Iraq.

        May I second your opinions and offer you a good laugh.

    Anne-Marie Slaughter is a professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University and a former director of policy planning in the Obama/Clinton State Department (2009-2011). Besides being a member of the CFR, she has served on its board of directors.

    She is one of the big guns in the CFR opinion cartel and can be counted on to push relentlessly for treaties and arrangements that will ever erode American sovereignty and increasingly subject the United States to “international law” and international institutions.

    In her syndicated column of May 19 (timed for the opening of the NATO Summit the next day) entitled, “Globalizing NATO,” Professor Slaughter signified that the globalist dream to arm the UN with its own military is still alive, and NATO is the vehicle to achieve it.

    She declared:
    Even skeptics of NATO expansion and operations like the intervention in Libya now recognize that joint operations by member countries, operating under a UN mandate and in conjunction with regional partners, is likely to be a model for the future.

    As General Brent Scowcroft, National Security Adviser for President George H.W. Bush, observed, the UN Charter originally envisioned a standing military force to enforce Security Council resolutions – a vision that the NATO partner model might ultimately realize.

    The internationalists at the Council on Foreign Relations have been pushing for providing NATO with its own independent, permanent military assets, so that national politicians responding to war-weary voters will not be able to stifle the globalist agenda.
    Elmo Roper (CFR) explicitly spelled out the globalist vision in a 1960 speech to the Atlantic Union Committee entitled “The Goal is Government of All the World,” which was subsequently published as a pamphlet under the same title.

    Roper, who was then treasurer of the AUC, declared:
    But the Atlantic Pact (NATO) need not be our last effort toward greater unity. It can be converted into one more sound and important step working toward world peace. It can be one of the most positive moves in the direction of One World.

    Roper continued:
    For it becomes clear that the first step toward world government cannot be completed until we have advanced on the four fronts: the economic, the military, the political, and the social. Few of the one-worlders speak as candidly as Mr. Roper did in that speech.

    Vice President Joe Biden, however, comes close, vigorously championing the transformation of NATO’s armed might into the operational arm of the United Nations.

    During the Senate confirmation hearing for Warren Christopher (CFR), the nominee of President Bill Clinton (CFR) for Secretary of State, on January 13, 1993, then-Senator Biden stated:

    Organizing for collective security – means strengthening the U.N. by assigning to the Security Council certain predesignated military forces and facilities: a conception unanimously endorsed by this committee last October. It also means converting NATO into a military instrument for peacekeeping, and peacemaking, under U.N. or CSCE auspices.

    Sen. Biden went on to invoke Woodrow Wilson and to endorse Wilson’s radical vision of “world order” under a League of Nations with its own global army and navy.

  5. Dogman says:

    When the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was established in 1949, a secret clause in its treaty specified that each nation that wished to join must first establish a “national security authority” to fight communism, including through the deployment of clandestine citizen cadres. This demand grew out of a secret committee set up by the British and the U.S. within the Atlantic Pact, the forerunner of NATO. Truman’s National Security Council issued directives authorizing the Armed Forces to use military force against Communist Parties, which commanded strong popular support in several European countries as a result of the war, even if those parties gained participation in government through elections. For this purpose, NATO and the Anglo-American intelligence services set up “stay-behind” units in all European countries.

    According to Italian Gen. Paolo Inzerilli, who commanded Italy’s Gladio unit from 1974-86, the Clandestine Planning Committee (CPC) and its Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC) were the “interface between NATO’s Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) and the Secret Services of the member states as far as the problems of non-orthodox warfare were concerned.” The CPC, said Inzerilli, was dominated by an inner executive group of the United States, Britain, and France, while the ACC was essentially a technical committee to coordinate expertise in explosives, “repression,” or related problems of clandestine warfare. Italian Gen. Gerardo Serravalle testified that the members of the CPC were the officers responsible for the stay-behind apparatus in the various European countries, and that “At the stay-behind meetings representatives of the CIA were always present,” as well as “members of the U.S. Forces Europe Command.”

    The mid-1970s U.S. Congressional investigative committee under Sen. Frank Church, which examined illicit actions by U.S. intelligence services and the military, found that the Pentagon had requested the CIA’s covert branch, the Office of Policy Coordination (OPC), to take the point in establishing stay-behind armies in Europe. The early plans were focussed on the Soviet Union, as the Church report noted: “Until 1950 OPC’s paramilitary activities (also referred to as preventive action) were limited to plans and preparations for stay-behind nets in the event of future war. Requested by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, these projected OPC operations focussed on Western Europe and were designed to support NATO forces against Soviet attack.” However, the Pentagon soon went much further. A Joint Chiefs of Staff directive of May 14, 1952 set up “Operation Demagnetize,” in which the CIA and the military secret services were instructed to reduce the “magnetic attraction” of the large Communist Parties of Italy and France through all means, including “political, paramilitary and psychological operations.” The directive stated, “The limitation of the strength of the Communists in Italy and France is a top priority objective. This objective has to be reached by the employment of all means. The Italian and French government may know nothing of the plan `Demagnetize,’ for it is clear that the plan can interfere with their respective national sovereignty.”

    Operationally, the stay-behind units were run by the military secret services of each NATO nation, as directed by the CPC/ACC. Some light was shed on Pentagon and NATO thinking of this time in a Pentagon field manual, found along with the lists of members of the elite Propaganda Due (P2) freemasonic lodge in P2 Grand Master Licio Gelli’s villa in Arezzo, Tuscany in 1981. Although issued in 1970, Field Manual 30-31B (FM 30-31B) reflected earlier Pentagon and NATO planning. It emphasized that military and other secret service leaders in each country should be recruited as U.S. (or NATO) agents: “The success of internal stabilisation operations, which are promoted in the context of strategies for internal defence by the U.S. military secret service, depends to a large extent on the understanding between the U.S. personnel and the personnel of the host country. The recruitment of senior members of the secret service of the host country as long time agents is thus especially important.”

    • Dogman says:

      “The SOE was replaced by the SAS, which helped Britain’s foreign secret service, MI6, to train the stay-behind armies of Europe. Gladio specialist Daniele Ganser of the Center for Security Studies at Zurich Technical University observed, “Many within the stay-behind community regarded the British to be the best in the field of secret warfare, more experienced than the military officers of the U.S.”

      The British set up a base for training stay-behind units at Ft. Monckton outside Portsmouth, England, and another in Sardinia. One of the stay-behind operatives trained at Ft. Monckton recalled, “We were made to do exercises, going out in the dead of night and pretending to blow up trains in the railway stations without the stationmaster or the porters seeing you. We crept about and pretended to lay charges on the right part of the railway engine with a view to blowing it up.” In the Gladio-coordinated blind terror which ravaged Italy from 1969 through 1980, trains and railway stations were to be a favorite target, notably the 1974 bombing of the Rome-Munich Italicus Express, which killed 12 and injured 48, and the explosion in the Bologna rail station in August 1980, which killed 85 and seriously injured or maimed 200. Lyndon LaRouche first emphasized within hours of the Madrid train bombings of March 11, 2001 which killed 200 and wounded thousands more, that they were not the work of “Islamic terrorists,” but followed the pattern of the 1980 Bologna bombing.

      Vincenzo Vinciguerra, an Italian neo-fascist terrorist who was jailed for life and who had been bitter about the secret service’s “manipulation” of neo-fascist groups ever since 1945, explained how Gladio (and any sister organizations) worked: “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the State to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the State cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened.”

    “Borghese’s “united Europe” was the scheme promoted, from the early 1920s on, by his fellow oligarch, the Venetian Count Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, which became an explicit goal of the Synarchist International in the 1920s and 1930s. Today, the seed crystal of that “united Europe” has become the Maastricht Treaty-generated European Union and its European Central Bank. The same vision of a united Europe had also inspired Hjalmar Schacht, the financial architect of Hitler’s regime, though Schacht viewed Hitler’s conquest of Europe as the pathway to achieve it. It was also the vision for which the Synarchy deployed one of its most notorious agents of the 20th Century, Alexander Helphand Parvus. Parvus first financed the Bolshevik Revolution, and then, after it was victorious, became the most ferocious “anti-Bolshevik,” proclaiming that only a “united Europe” could stop the communist menace!”

    Israeli NATO

    Besides the obvious problems associated with Israel having an office within NATO that will afford her the ability to spy on the military activities of 28 Western militaries, the other obvious problem is that it also affords the Jewish state an open door towards influence.
