US-Dominated NATO Readying for War on Russia?
by Stephen Lendman
Mounting evidence should scare everyone - especially with neocon lunatics in Washington driving policymaking.
They deplore peace. They demand endless wars against all nations not subservient to America's will - puppet vassal states serving US interests, letting their resources be plundered for profit.
Russia and China are prime targets - the only nations able to challenge America militarily, economically, and/or politically.
Washington pressuring Japan and other Asian nations against China shows what Beijing faces. So does America's planned increased regional military presence.
Growing numbers of US combat troops close to Russia's borders reflect confrontation waiting to happen - between the world's preeminent nuclear states risks the unthinkable.
Provocative US-dominated NATO military exercises in Russia's backyard ups the ante for trouble. More on this below.
In late April, US-installed NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said dealing with Russia requires "a strong collective alliance" - code language for preparing for military confrontation?
He lied about what he called the "disturbing…behavior of Russia in Ukraine" - using "force to change borders."
"(W)e have to keep NATO strong"- especially in Eastern Europe, Stoltenberg said.
"(W)e are making our forces more ready, more prepared (by more than) doubling" the Alliance's Readiness Action Plan strength - including a "High Readiness" force able to act within 48 hours.
Stoltenberg repeated NATO commander General Philip Breedlove's Big Lies claiming:
• nonexistent "Russian aggression;"
• "substantial Russian buildup along the border with Ukraine, but also inside eastern Ukraine;"
• arming Donbass freedom fighters with heavy weapons; and
• violating other Minsk ceasefire terms.
False on all counts! Russia threatens no one. No evidence suggests menacing troop buildups along Ukraine's border, its forces operating inside its territory, or supplying Donbass freedom fighters with heavy or other weapons.
In contrast, hundreds of US combat troops operate in Ukraine - readying its Nazi-infested National Guard and likeminded extremist groups for war.
Washington supplied Kiev with heavy weapons since conflict erupted last spring. Planeloads more arrive regularly.
America threatens Russia and world peace. Its numerous provocations risk direct confrontation.
Military exercises begun on Monday involve thousands of US, UK, German, Belgian, Dutch, Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian and Polish combat troops readying for possible confrontation with Russia.
Poland's President Bronislaw Komorowski signed a resolution establishing a Polish/Lithuanian/Ukrainian military brigade for the same purpose.
At full operational strength scheduled for 2017, it'll include 4,500 combat ready troops.
According to Komorowski, the joint force is "part of a wider plan…to support Ukraine, among others, in the area of modernization" for greater combat readiness against Moscow.
Washington and Brussels want NATO members spending more on "defense." They want homeland needs sacrificed for greater militarism at a time America and rogue Alliance allies pose the world's only threat.
Russia poses none. So-called "Russian aggression" is nonexistent. Moscow is the continent's leading peacemaker.
On Monday, US, German, Norwegian and Swedish submarines joined 13 surface ships from America, Britain, Canada, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, and Turkey for Exercise DYNAMIC MONGOOSE - despite no regional submarine or other threat affecting the participating nations.
Finland reservists are being enlisted in Washington's growing belligerence toward Russia.
Defense Minister Carl Haglund sent 900,000 reservists a letter explaining their role in a potential "crisis situation" - insinuating confrontation with Russia.
Both countries share a 1,340 km border with Russia - running mostly through uninhabited forests and sparsely populated rural areas.
It bears repeating. Mounting evidence suggests US-dominated NATO heading for direct confrontation with Russia. If initiated with nuclear weapons, all bets are off.
A Final Comment
No nation in world history along with its presstitute media proliferate more provocative propaganda than America - Big Lies by any standard.
None pose humanity a greater threat. None more leave world peace hanging by a thread.
US-pressured EU leaders intend developing new ways to counter Russian proliferated hard truths irresponsibly called propaganda.
Sputnik News called it a planned "new Iron Curtain" at a time US-dominated NATO alone threatens world peace enhanced by relentless Russia bashing - malicious disinformation substituting malicious Big Lies for hard truths.
According to the Brussels-based EUobserver, "Russian propaganda disseminated by outlets such as RT and Sputnik News is finding receptive audiences in various EU member states" - because it's some of the most reliable news and information found anywhere, polar opposite Western rubbish.
Washington and Brussels call truth-telling on vital issues "propaganda." They want nothing interfering with their mind-manipulating disinformation. No alternative views are tolerated - especially on major geopolitical issues.
Western free expression is just a figure of speech. State-sponsored lawlessness threatens to eliminate it altogether.
Perhaps it's just another 9/11-type major US and/or EU-instigated false flag away - followed by martial law and suspension of fundamental democratic rights.
Police states are born this way - especially when people are duped to believe sacrificing freedoms enhance their security. They end up losing both big time.
