“NATO Can Deploy Wherever It Wants”: NATO Admits that it’s an Instrument of Aggression, Not a Defensive Bloc

New NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg boasted, “Next year, at the ministerial meeting, we’ll take decisions regarding the so-called spearhead but, even before we establish it, NATO has a strong army after all. These capabilities already exist. We have them, and we can deploy them in individual regions. This is only an add-on to what the alliance already has”. Sounds impressive, huh… don’t get excited… it’s only a matter of several thousand troops, equal to a single brigade. Stoltenberg, a former Norwegian Prime Minister (a rather bellicose rightwing Labour Party member… an equal of Chilly Hilly in the USA) is blowing smoke out of his ass, no doubt to please the American neocon bosses of NATO. Reuters trumpeted last month that the USA transferred 20 M1A1 Abrams main battle tanks and about 700 soldiers (with Bradley MICVs and Stryker light AFVs… the latter are lightly-armoured POS jokes that one can cut to pieces with a light autocannon or even an old WW-II-vintage anti-tank rifle) to the Baltic States. Again, this is bullshit. 20 tanks is only 2 tank companies (10 tanks per company, 3 per platoon)… although Bradleys are fully capable MICVs, Strykers are lightly-armoured crapola AFVs only fit to fight in low-level COIN operations in the Third World. This is a force equal to an understrength battalion task force (there was no talk of artillery or helicopter support units). Russia’s supposed to be scared of such a deployment?!? It’s nothing but a tripwire force… if the Russians attacked, the USA would respond with tactical nukes. NATO admits that it’s an aggressor… it no longer serves a defensive purpose (if it ever did), a notional purpose that lapsed with the fall of the USSR in 1991. Remember what US Secretary of State James Baker said to Gorbachyov… that if the Soviets allowed the DDR and BRD to unify as a single state, NATO wouldn’t move “one inch” further east. Furthermore, Jack Matlock, the US ambassador to the USSR at the time, went on record as stating that the USA gave Moscow a “clear commitment” on NATO’s pledge not to expand further in Russia’s direction.

There are liars afoot… they’re NOT in Moscow…

Let’s take a break from the war… have a smile. Originally, instead of “beer”, it had “пиво”, but the magic of PhotoShop allowed me to make the change. By the way, the officer is a major…

26 September 2014. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky. Obama the Peacemaker. 2014

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. Obama the Peacemaker. 2014

______________________________

“As it turns out, Obama’s one of the most aggressive presidents in decades. He authorised military action in seven Muslim countries… Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and now in Syria. Some see Obama as a peacemaker, but the facts show that he’s actually quite the opposite”.

22 September 2014. Here Be Those Nasty Ol’ Russian Soldiers that the Western Media Bloviates About…

______________________________

There’s much bloviation about Russian military men in the Western punditocracy… they’re all mediocrities at best… they’re brutal rapists, thugs, and thieves… they’re completely clueless as compared to their Western counterparts… they’re just not REAL military men (to be military men in the Western sense, one has to devastate civilian neighbourhoods without mercy, use torture when you feel like it, force-feed prisoners, call all your enemies “terrorists”, and bomb ‘em all into the Stone Age without any moral qualms whatsoever). Nope… Russian soldiers aren’t like that at all. They’re normal human beings, as the above image testifies… and their professional standards are as high as anyone else’s. The USA lacks the money, means, manpower, and will to face Russia, and that’s that. In any case, Russians ARE patriotic and WILL fight for their Motherland,,, they’re not service-evading cowards like the leading elements of the US Republican Party… don’t attend to rightwing jerks like George Will, Rich Lowry, Rod Dreher, or the bloviators at Stratfor (they aren’t real intel people… they’re media poseurs)… they DO have an agenda…
