NATO Triggers Destruction, Insecurity and Poverty. It Must be Abolished! By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya and Silvia Cattori
1 April 2013 — Global Research
Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya interviewed by Silvia Cattori
Appreciated for the rigor and the accuracy of his analysis, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, age 30, has emerged as one of the best scholars on NATO. His articles, which have been translated into many languages, have acquired an international audience and, today, his book The Globalization of NATO has become a reference guide. In 400 dense, fascinating and worrying pages it makes us realize the extent of the threat that NATO poses to world peace and to the future of many nations. It also makes us aware of the urgency involved in obtaining the dissolution of this dangerous organization.

Modern-day empires in the West
The rebirth of the imperial spirit in the West is moving along two sometimes converging, but in recent times increasingly diverging, lines. Looking at Europe’s relations with its neighbours, one can see that the European Union initially pursued an imperial policy with regard to countries in Central and Eastern Europe that had joined the EU, but then began to extend the same policy to other countries.

The war in Mali will enter its third month this week. Some 4,000 French soldiers, and about twice as many African soldiers of an international force fighting in coordination with them, have conquered all the major cities in northern Mali. However, there are hardly any reports of the fighting, and almost no pictures.

France perpetrated two large deceptions in conducting its military intervention into Mali more than seven weeks ago. These have been universally accepted in mainstream media reporting. The first is that the unilateral decision to invade Mali on January 11, 2013 was hastily made, prompted by imminent military threats by Islamic fundamentalist forces against the south of the country where the large majority of Malians live.

Canada‘s role in the postmodern imperial world is as a poster child for promoting formal electoral democracy — at home and abroad. Internationally, instead of offering peacekeeping troops to the UN, as in days of yore, and promoting grassroots development in the third world, it takes orders directly from its US-Euro masters, helping them invade countries if necessary to set up the mechanisms for elections, and ignoring for the most part the real problems that the poor of the world face. It uses its foreign diplomatic service not to promote peace and social justice, but to support the needs of Canadian corporations abroad and facilitate their quest for profits.

Syrian Rebels Get Arms from Kosovo and Bosnia

…The policy of the West in Syria is myopic. It goes on losing control over the events in this country. In fact it gives refuge to terrorists and faces the prospect of raging terror spilling over to Europe. Hotbeds of Islamic extremism that appeared with the connivance of the West in the former Yugoslavia are sparked again under the influence of Middle East events. Europe appears to be threatened by a big fire…more
Winter 2013 – State of Nature
“Welfare, as a universal institution, is the logical aspirational consequence of a unified nation. This union is a rare occurrence because, consciously or not, much thought and effort goes into insuring it does not happen.”
When the Dismal Thirties succeeded the Roaring Twenties nations everywhere became restive. Free market private capitalism had failed and its financial structures had collapsed, leaving an ideological void that threatened the foundations of power and wealth. Continue reading this...

Paris has its own history of meddling into affairs of former French West African colonies, Cote D’Ivoire, for instance. The black continent (Libya, Mali) interventions have increased in scale and have become more frequent. It has given a rise to talks about the revival of French colonial policy.

…The US Federal Reserve System bankers are dry behind the ears in plundering other nations. The method is the same – exchanging real resources, goods, assets for pieces of paper, call it Federal Reserve bonds, US Treasury loan securities or US dollar bills…etc. The issuer never intends to redeem bonds. Formally the US Department of Treasury or Reserve banks could be an issuer. Doesn’t matter. It’s still the very same people who are behind them – the bankers seizing natural resources, gold and other treasures of other nations…more
