Is @NATO there to keep fear away? Or does it create fear for pay?
Is it seeking peace, or profiting from the fear of war?
Is it a question of myriad paths & high salaries needing a new enemy? Or are they truly noble guardians barring an evil enemy's way?
The principle potential enemy when NATO was first formed was the Soviet Union even though, whether believed by @NATO members of the time or not the leadership of the then Soviet Union had decided on peaceful relations with all others already in 1922.
NATO did not see active service during the Cold War. The Warsaw Pact did not expand to more European countries than those that existed within it at the conclusion of WWII. Yet @NATO expanded from that time until this.
At the time of intense negotiation on E & W Germany reunifying Mikhail Gorbachev, the head of state for the Soviet Union was given multiple verbal assurances that @NATO would not move an inch further east if he presented no barriers to German reunification.
At the time the idea @NATO would continue after the end of the Cold War seemed highly unlikely. Why would it? It's purpose in existing was disappearing before everyone's eyes. Yet NATO did continue to exist & expanded its operations from 12 to 29 nations.
The verbal assurances given to Gorbachev concerning @NATO not moving eastwards proved worthless. Former Warsaw Bloc countries joined NATO one after another until the vast majority became NATO members & with NATO began to threaten the Russian Federation.
Along with the seventeen new nations now joining @NATO, others such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, North Macedonia & Ukraine became aspiring members. With NATO, these nations represented an ever- growing existential threat to the Russian Federation.
At the conclusion of the Cold War the future of NATO was cast into doubt. What was its role now that the Soviet Union & Warsaw Pact no longer assisted? @NATO needed a new reason for its existence & for the vast expenditure needed by it on an annual basis.
@NATO was by this time a deeply embedded institution in Europe. It's infrastructure was widely spread & staff was pervasive. Careers were at risk along with the generous pay packages that enticed members ever upwards. NATO ceasing to be became unthinkable.
A new role for @NATO had to be found & ultimately a necessary, new & very vital enemy. After a short hiatus the new role(s) arose just after the last nation emerged from The Warsaw Pact which fell apart nation by nation between 1989 & 1991.
From 1992 to 1995 NATO conducted the first military missions in its history in Bosnia & was very active again later in Yugoslavia with myriad attacks on Serbia. Between March & June 1999 @NATO bombed multiple buildings & infrastructure targets in Serbia.
In April of 1999 the national Serbian TV headquarters were attacked with causing at least ten deaths. The response in the West to this blatant attack on a civilian target was extremely muted.
The true story of the targeting of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade reveals how truth is indeed the first casualty of war & it often dies before it commences as has been seen to be true in the case of Iraq & now Venezuela.
In 2011 @NATO effected a no-fly zone over Libya then led a multi-state attack upon the forces of the Libyan government led by Muammar Gaddafi. US, British, French & Canadian forces conducted airstrikes that Libyan gov forces were ineffectual in repelling.
Libya after @NATO attacks w/ the coalition has become a fractured land where warlords vie w/ each other for power in a conflict where no end is in sight. Libya is now largely a lawless land where security is close to zero & slave trading now takes place.
Coming closer to present time @NATO was a chief voice of criticism when the people of Crimea voted to reunify with Russia after the riots on Kiev's Maidan & the fall of the president & government they had played a full part instrumental in electing.
@NATO is a constant critic of Russia on Crimea & events in eastern Ukraine along with essentially the same group of allies with which it attacked both Serbia & Libya. In addition NATO has during this time encroached further & further upon Russia's borders.
@NATO has consistently lent itself to the fabrications of Ukrainian president Petro (Propaganda) Poroshenko in stoking up unwarranted fears of Russia. Time after time NATO has attempted to demonize Vladimir Putin & create an aura of fear concerning Russia.
In light of all this is @NATO a force for good & peace in the world? Or is it the military arm of western imperialism led by an consistently imperialistic USA?
Our conclusion is very definitely that it is the latter an obvious force for war & instability.
Since the attacks of @NATO upon Serbia & through what was clearly an illegal, irresponsible & utterly murderous attack on Libya, it's obvious NATO has sought to invent a purpose, preserve its career paths & its salaries by fomenting war & engendering fear.
In the Baltic States of Lithuania, Latvia & Estonia, in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia & elsewhere @NATO has sought to carve new niches for itself in tandem with these nations generating their own self-interested fearmongering in hope of western aid.
@NATO seems to care little or nothing about the anxiety & at times undoubtedly near terror that its self-interested statements on Russia generate.
Its own survival, income & power appears to be paramount to its leaders.
Hence, 'NATO : MAKING FEAR PAY'
Two nations Russia is in dispute with Georgia & Ukraine want to join @NATO & may do so at a future date. This would bring NATO right up to the border of the Russian Federation in an intolerable attempt to encircle the country. Russia is under great threat.
Trump is advocating that Latin American countries should join @NATO.
What they have to do with the North Atlantic Ocean is far from clear, but what IS clear is that this will not stop their membership if Trump & his Neocons have need of their services.
@NATO is part of an ever more threatening world gathering in darkness round us. A world of threatening coalitions where MSM entities transmit all the necessary lies to allow 'humanitarian' wars to be fought against those nations targeted for destruction.
NATO is part of a past that ought to have stayed there not continue w/ us for the most ignoble & dangerously irresponsible of reasons, willing to see millions die in an apocalyptic world war for the sake of @NATO survival is a vile CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.
While the world descends into the hands of criminals all around us we see the western world incessantly attack one of the few men of integrity who is trying to hold the most solid values of the past in place, Vladimir Putin.
NATO : MAKING FEAR PAY
President Assad of Syria hung on despite sustained US terrorism to bring him & his country to their knees. The leaders of Venezuela, Cuba & Nicaragua are all in the cross-hairs of Trump's goons & will face the might of @NATO in ADDITION to that of the USA.
