Like a steamroller, the United States and NATO are extending to the world the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski strategy for the destruction of the state structures of countries which are not integrated into the globalised economy. For this, they are using the Europeans, whom they bamboozle into the belief in an alleged « Russian menace ». By doing so, they are running the risk of provoking a general war.
The political leaders of NATO gathered together to celebrate this anniversary, but without the presence of President Trump. At the same moment, and against the advice of the Alliance, Trump proposed a partial nuclear disarmament with China and Russia. From their side, a few peace militants called for an exit from NATO - a position which is pardoxically close to that of Donald Trump.
The 70th anniversary of NATO will be celebrated in Washington, where President Donald Trump, having lost the majority in the House of Representatives, has been obliged to accept an alliance with the US Deep State. So now we are waiting for them to reveal their common objectives, or at least the means they have decided to implement in order to achieve them.
Massimo D’Alema entered into history by leading his country, Italy, into NATO’s criminal war against ex-Yugoslavia. At that time, the world had become unipolar, and no-one in the West was worried about violating international law and launching a war against the decision of the Security Council. The same D’Alema is working today to create a Greater Albania which includes what is currently Kosovo.
The European Parliament has just adopted a resolution which requires that the Union stop considering Russia as a strategic partner, but rather as an enemy of humanity. At the same time, the Commission sent a warning about the Chinese threat. Everything is unfolding as if the United States were manœuvering the Union into playing a part in their own supremacist strategy.
The United States intend to consider their allies as protectorates no longer. Consequently, the US is asking them to pay the cost of their protection, failing which, it will withdraw. Such was President Trump’s announcement on 17 January at the Pentagon. It was presented at NATO in February, but was only made public this week. It is a decision which applies to all the allies, from Japan to Germany. The problem is that Washington is also asking its allies to align with US positions… just as they did as protectorates.
The reorganisation of the US base Camp Darby (Italy) masks the transfer of special forces to US command. This system already existed in the past. It was this mechanism which enabled the creation of Gladio, the service for NATO’s secret actions in Italy. Since December 2015 (article 7bis of Law 198), the President of the Italian Council has the possibility of pursuing military operations by Intelligence operations. This news gives more weight to the hypothesis that we published two months ago – NATO is preparing a wave of attacks in Europe.
During the attacks on 11 September 2001, Secretary for Defense Donald Rumsfeld and his advisor, Arthur Cebrowski, defined the Pentagon’s need to dominate the entire planetary battle-field (Full-Spectrum Dominance) in order to maintain the unipolarity of the world. This is exactly what the United States are attempting today.
The Pentagon has decided to install medium-range nuclear missiles in Europe, which would turn this territory into a battle-field in case of a war between the two Great Powers. It’s no surprise that NATO and the European Union have approved the suicide of the European nations.
Finally, President Trump has aligned himself with the ambitions of the US deep state for the destruction of the Caribbean Basin. He has confirmed Vice-President Mike Pence and Senator Marco Rubio in their operation to destabilise Venezuela. He may also support the same two men in their project for Israël and against Syria.
During the seven years of war against Syria, Israël continually intervened in secret, lending airborne support to the jihadists in their attempts to overthrow the Republic. Since the end of 2018, Tel-Aviv has changed its tactics, and is now proceeding with vast bombing operations which they no longer bother to hide. Their goal is to hit Iranian targets, with the tacit agreement of Russia. However, these Iranian targets seem to be no more than anecdotal. Simultaneously, Israël, having reached an agreement with the leaders of Hamas which it finances publicly via Qatar, continues to wage its war against the civilians of Gaza.
Created in 2007 on the findings of an Israëli study, AfriCom (US Command for Africa) has never yet managed to install its headquarters on the continent. This structure carries out anti-terrorist operations from Germany, with the support of France in the region of the Sahel. In return, US and French transnational companies conserve a privileged access to African prime materials.
The member States of the European Union have unanimously aligned themselves with the military strategy of their American big brother. They have accepted that their own territory may transform itself into a nuclear battleground in the case of conflict between the United States and Russia.
What was the reaction to the warning by Russian President Putin when he said that the world underestimates the peril of of nuclear war, and that this tendency is increasing?
The commentary in the La Repubblica is significant, speaking of his “highly alarming tone”. The almost absolute silence of the whole Parliamentarian arc is also eloquent. As if Italy had nothing to do with the race to stock up nuclear weapons which, warned Putin in his end-of-year Press conference, could lead to the (...)
Minister for Defence Elisabetta Trenta (5-Star Movement), on the mike of a musical radio station, sang « C’era un ragazzo che come me amava i Beatles e i Rolling Stones » , and declared « This song makes me think about the value of peace, a priceless value that we must always preserve ».
Ten days later, in Afghanistan, the military-garbed Minister praised « our armed presence outside of the frontiers of Italy, guided by the values of our Constitution, on a fundamental mission for peace ». (...)
The US Commission on the National Defense Strategy was created in 2017 in order to provide Congress with some expertise on the subject. However, its principal source of information is the US Institute of Peace, the equivalent of the NED for the Secretary of Defense. As a result, its bipartisan attitude is in reality the point of view that the Pentagon wants to defend via the Democrat and Republican Parties.
Donald Trump’s attempt to re-balance the commercial flow between China and the USA does not correspond only to his aim of bringing de-localised jobs back to the United States. Indeed, the deployment of new transport and communications infrastructures is swiftly becoming a threat to the US position as leader of the world. The struggle centred around Huawei illustrates the way in which economic and military preoccupations inter-connect. Already, many States have observed that Washington is so far unable to decode this technology. Thus, as they did in Syria, they have entirely re-equipped their Intelligence services with Huawei material, and forbid their civil servants to use any others.
Just as NATO denounces the boarding of Ukrainian ships by Russia, without noting that they had violated its maritime space, so its Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, denounces the danger of Russian missiles. The principles of propaganda never change – avoid the context and distort the scale of the facts.
It’s a fact, not an analysis, not even an opinion – the « free and open international order» promoted since 1945 by the United States has cost the lives of 20 to 30 million people throughout the world. No President, whoever he may be, has managed to slow the rhythm of this killing machine.
After Emmanuel Macron’s failure to solve the Libyan crisis, it’s now Giuseppe Conte’s turn to take a shot at it. It’s true that Rome is better placed than Paris, insofar as it enjoys the support of the White House. However, there is little chance that any progress of any sort will be made, since these « fairy godmothers » are in fact the big bad wolves who recently devoured Libya.
Contrary to articles in the Atlantist Press, Muos is not a defensive radar, but a new satellite communications system which enables the Pentagon to supervise offensive actions anywhere in the world. One of its four land bases is situated in Europe, specifically in Niscemi (Italy).
Since the time of Silvio Berlusconi, Italy has been attempting to draw closer to Russia, with which it has several common interests. However, the promise of marriage has never yet led to any important concrete measures, because Italy is a member of NATO, and as such, is obliged to be an enemy of Russia.
Far from being a simple military exercise, the war game « Trident Juncture 2018 » aims at eradicating the ideal of neutrality and press-ganging the Nordic countries into the US crusade against Russia. The states which are participating either believe or will come to believe in the imaginary danger of the « Russian peril ».
The announcement that "Trump breaks the historic nuclear treaty with Moscow" - the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) - was no surprise. Now, however, it is official. To understand the scope of this act, we should review the historical context from which the INF Treaty was born.
The president of the United States, Ronald Reagan, and the president of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev, signed the INF in Washington, on Dec. 8, 1987, after having agreed on it the year before at the (...)
As we might have expected, the de facto abandon of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) – concluded between Washington and Moscow at the end of the Cold War – has now rebooted the competition. Except that this time, it’s even more complicated, since the United States violated the Treaty first, while they were already violating the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Meanwhile, Russia has discreetly forged ahead with its technological progress while pretending to allow the problem to drag on.
The Pentagon is busy pursuing all sorts of research. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is studying the possibility of using insects to infect crops, while the Office of Naval Research hopes to use other insects as sensors, capable of detecting explosives. This is not science-fiction.
Contrary to official communications and comments from the different political parties, no-one is opposed to the expenditure by the new Italian government. All political formations support the growth of military spending, even if it is in no way required by the current situation.
The strategy of the European populist parties linked to Steve Bannon has run into a difficult contradiction. Logic would seem to indicate that they should be seeking a rapprochement with Russia, as the Italians have done, for example. But their US sponsor is working in the opposite direction - to sabotage the economy and the political confirmation of Moscow.
Since the reorganisation of 2012, the US base of Camp Darby in Italy no longer houses the field hospitals for the Middle East. It has become both a vast reserve for the grocery stores of other Western American bases and a gigantic arsenal. Far from shrinking, as had been announced, the camp just keeps getting bigger.
