The NATO Economy, the solution to the U.S. crisis? By Thierry Meyssan

3 March 2013 — Voltaire Network 

During his annual State of the Union address, President Barack Obama unilaterally announced the opening of negotiations for a Transatlantic Global Trade and Investment Partnership with the European Union (12 February). A few hours later, the scoop was confirmed by a joint statement from the U.S. President and the Presidents of the European Council, Herman van Rompuy and European Commission, José Manuel Barroso.

Modern-day military-political alliances and coalitions as analogues of empires

The rebirth of imperial policy in modern international life demands an answer to the question: why are seemingly long obsolete geopolitical projects being dragged into the light of day at all when there are organisations like NATO and the European Union?

NATO: Delivering Death Since 1949 By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya

29 January, 2013 — Global Research

The world is enveloped in a blanket of perpetual conflict. Invasions, occupation, illicit sanctions, and regime change have become currencies and orders of the day. One organization – the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) – is repeatedly, and very controversially, involved in some form or another in many of these conflicts led by the US and its allies.

NATO will be Defeated in Libya: The Libyan Resistance Movement. A Defining Moment for Africa By Gerald A. Perreira

14 July 2011 — Global ResearchLibya 360

The argument in Libya has been won by the Al Fateh revolution. There is now a glaring truth confronting the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization (NATO) – Muammar Qaddafi has handed out over one million kalashnikovs to the Libyan people. If he was the brutal dictator that NATO would have us believe him to be, then the armed population could have turned their guns on him and the revolutionary armed forces by now, especially as they would have NATO’s full backing if they did so.

War as a “Humanitarian Endeavor”: NATO’s Libya ‘hope’ strategy is bombing By Gen. Lewis MacKenzie

10 June, 2011 — Global ResearchGlobe and Mail

We are now in the 84th day of the bombing campaign that the United Nations Security Council authorized to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya in a bid to protect civilians from Moammar Gadhafi’s forces. In a bizarre development, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has said it will extend the campaign for 90 days, surely a first in the history of war when one side ‘extends the contract’ for a set period. This presumably occurred because NATO’s strategy is still based on the flimsy hope that Colonel Gadhafi will see the error of his ways and capitulate before his surroundings and his supporters are bombed back to the Stone Age.

Call for Attacks on Libyan Infrastructure Provides Glimpse of NATO’s Real Motives By Conn Hallinan

18 May 2011 — Mathaba


(Pictured: Gen. Sir David Richards, British war criminal)

According to the New York Times (5/16/11), Gen. Sir David Richards, ‘Britain’s top military commander,’ is proposing that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) target Libyan ‘infrastructure,’ including electrical power grids and fuel dumps, in government held areas.

Frustrated by the two-month old stalemate, Gen. Richards told the Times that ‘The vice is closing on [Muammar el-] Qaddadi, but we need to increase the pressure further through more intense military activity.’ The British are playing a major role in the bombing campaign, and Gen. Richards was in Naples, the command center for the war in Libya, when he talked with the Times.

The Times went on to write, ‘The General suggested that NATO should be freed from restraints that precluded attacking infrastructure targets.’
