NATO runs into multipolar world order

Wednesday, 15 June 2022 — Indian Punchline

Joint press conference by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg (L) and Prime Minister of Sweden, Magdalena Andersson (R), June 13, 2022

Germans say the moment of truth for most children comes at the end of Grade 4 when primary education ends in Grundschule. By that reckoning, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) at 73 is in “second childishness and mere oblivion / Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything” — to borrow from Jaques’ famous soliloquy in Shakespeare’s As you Like It.

Hydropolitics Propel Balkanization

08.06.2013 | 00:00 | Wayne MADSEN

Afghanistan: Training Ground for War on Russia By Rick Rozoff

26 July, 2009 — Global ResearchStop NATO

A Swedish newspaper reported on July 24 that approximately 50 troops from the country serving under NATO in the so-called International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) had engaged in a fierce firefight in Northern Afghanistan and had killed three and wounded two attackers.

The report detailed that the Swedish troops were traveling in armored vehicles and “later received reinforcements from several soldiers in a Combat Vehicle 90.” [1]

The world has become so inured to war around the world and seemingly without end that Swedish soldiers engaging in deadly combat as part of a belligerent force for the first time since the early 1800s – and that in another continent thousands of kilometers from their homeland – has passed virtually without notice.

NATO's War Plans For The High North, Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea By Rick Rozoff

14 June, 2009 – Global ResearchStop NATO

nato-north.jpgSince the beginning of the year the United States and NATO have repeatedly indicated in both word and deed their intention to lay claim to and extend their military presence in what they refer to as the High North: The Arctic Circle and the waters connecting with it, the Barents and the Norwegian Seas, as well as the Baltic.
