The problem with alliances is that they ultimately either become victims of their own success, or cannot figure out what to do with themselves once the original rationale disappears. The original Cold War-era NATO was a relatively cohesive entity led by one of the two superpowers, with most of its members being the industrialized democracies of Western Europe, with West Germany being its eastern-most European member, and alliance planning revolving around USSR. But even then there were cracks in the alliance. Italy, for example, had nearly no role to play as it did not border any Warsaw Pact country and did not practice deploying its forces to West Germany to practice its defense against the anticipated Warsaw Pact invasion. And while Greece and Turkey were ostensibly part of that alliance as well, in practice they spent more time clashing with one another than planning for joint action against USSR.
The end of the Cold War made the problem of alliance cohesion far worse, for two reasons. One, it quickly added as many members as possible thus greatly expanding its geographical extent, and two, it lost that single unifying factor in the form of USSR. Today’s NATO is a patchwork of mini-alliances revolving around the United States which is determined to replace the alliance aspect of NATO which assumes that all members have interests that are to be taken into consideration, by patron-client relationships.
Not to put too fine a point on it, the goal of the United States is global domination. This goal is shared by the entire political elite and major portions of the population, though it is nearly never discussed openly or directly. Instead, it is framed in terms of “American Leadership”, “New American Century”, and of course “American Exceptionalism” which is used to justify any policy that violates international law, treaties, or agreements. Given that every country which has not recognized “American Leadership” is described as a “regime”, there is no indication the US elite is interested in anything resembling peaceful coexistence with other sovereign states.
NATO plays a double role in achieving that goal. First, it is a military alliance that projects military power against anyone refusing to accept “American Leadership”. Military contributions by European member states are certainly important, not least by giving America the veneer of international legitimacy, but the presence of US bases on the European continent is far more so. US forces stationed in or staged out of European naval, air, and land bases are indispensable to its efforts to control the MENA region and to promote the US policy of driving a wedge between Europe on the one hand and Russia and China on the other. Secondly, a European country’s membership in NATO means a sacrifice of considerable portion of its sovereignty and independence to the United States. This is a wholly asymmetrical relationship, since US bases its forces in European countries and sells its weapons to them, not the other way around. The penetration of a European country thus achieved allows US intelligence service to develop agent networks and to employ the full range of lobbying techniques which have been particularly visible in the US efforts to press F-35 aircraft into the hands of NATO member states.
America’s self-appointed task is made not easier or harder by the fact that today’s NATO is therefore fragmented along both geographic and national power lines. The geographical divide is plainly easy to see: Norway and Denmark mainly care about the Arctic, Poland and Romania obsess about Russia, Mediterranean countries freak out about what’s happening in North Africa. The wrangling over sending more troops to Mali or to Estonia is the reflection of the differing security concerns of individual members of the far-flung pact. The power divide is less easy to see but more problematic for Washington. V_3 (A2) Of the European powers, only four—Germany, France, Italy, and Great Britain—may be considered to be powerful and independent political actors with which the US has to contend on anything like an equal basis. The first three form the core of the European Union, whereas Great Britain opted for Brexit, likely in part because of the looming big power struggle between the US and the EU that has the potential of degenerating into a destructive trade war. It is doubtful that the skirmishes over Huawei and North Stream 2 are anything but the opening salvoes in the confrontation over whether the EU will emerge as a political actor independent of the US, or be reduced to a collection of client states. Unfortunately, America’s task is made easier by the fact of the intra-European divisions mentioned above.
United States is pursuing development of several hypersonic missile systems with the aim of ultimately fielding very large numbers of them in order to be able to launch disarming first strikes against Russian and Chinese nuclear arsenals. Since the weapons themselves are relatively short-ranged (though that may change once the US allows New START to lapse), they require basing close to their intended targets. That means having to find countries willing to base them in Europe, where it is liable to provoke a political debate of the magnitude comparable to that of the original Euromissile controversy of the 1980s. Since Germany is not interested in being reduced to the status of a US client, it has resisted the US on a variety of fronts, including the North Stream 2, the refusal to buy F-35s, and now also the lack of desire to host the new US missiles. Even the German defense spending increases are intended at least as much to counter US influence in Eastern Europe as the supposed Russian threat to NATO. The United States has responded using the usual array of tools: economic sanctions on any and all European entities participating in the project and even using the gas, apparently launching a cyber-attack that US-friendly German intelligence promptly blamed on Russia, and also threatening to move US troops out of Germany and possibly to Poland. There is even discussion and rumors that US nuclear weapons stationed in Germany might be moved to Poland.
The outcome of this so far is a power struggle between two NATO allies, US and Germany, over the political alignment of a third—Poland. While Germany has the power of EU institutions on its side and massive economic gravitational pull, US has cultivated a cadre of friends, possibly intelligence assets, as a result of post-9/11 collaboration in Afghanistan, Iraq, and in the realm of intelligence-sharing. This has produced a government more than willing to deploy US troops, missiles, and even nukes on Poland’s territory. The power of US influence is visible in Poland’s weapons procurement: Patriot, Javelin, HIMARS, F-35, and not a single comparable European system in recent years. The US weakness in this confrontation consists of the unwillingness to subsidize Poland economically which, combined with the ruling party’s fiscal irresponsibility, will make it difficult for the country to maintain its anti-German course in the longer term.
While in Eastern Europe US national security state is using Poland as a proxy against Germany, in the Mediterranean it has adopted Turkey as a proxy against France and Italy. After some hemming and hawing, the US hawks dropped the Kurds yet again, with Trump happily taking the blame, in order to piggy-back on Erdogan’s Libya ambitions to curtail French and Italian interests there. To be sure, Turkey retains far more autonomy in the relationship than Poland, which was unable or unwilling to play US and Russia and EU against one another in order to secure a measure of freedom of action. But the US Congress measures to allow the purchase of S-400 weapons from Turkey is an indicator that Turkey’s behavior is once again useful to the US. And even though Turkey was excluded from the F-35 program, its firms continue to make components for various assembly plants. The result has been a number of stand-offs between Turkish warships on one hand and French and Italian on the other off the coasts of Libya. And whereas France and Italy are backing the Marshal Haftar’s LNA, Turkey’s preferred proxy is the GNA, leading to a veritable “anti-Turkey” alliance being formed that includes Turkey’s old time NATO adversary Greece. While the US is officially aloof of the entire situation, in practice controlling Libya’s oil is part of the Washington strategy of “energy dominance” every bit as the North Stream 2 sanctions are.
The remarkable part of these two sets of conflicts among NATO powers is that in both cases Russia has sided with Germany and France against the US in both cases. It is Russia’s policies that are more beneficial to French and German interests than America’s, since Russia is not actually seeking to monopolize energy supplies to Europe in the way that the US clearly and openly is.
So far the US strategy consisted of steadily ratcheting up pressure through sanctions and proxies and occasional intelligence-generated anti-Russia provocations (sometimes helpfully delivered by British agencies), trying to find that happy middle of policies that actually force Germany, France, and Italy to change their policies and which do not force a permanent breach in the trans-Atlantic relationship. But the cracks in the relationship are clearly visible and they are not attributable to Trump’s erratic and brusque manner. It is the US Congress which passed the successive rounds of anti-North Stream 2 sanctions, with strong partisan majorities. It means the assertion of US control over European major powers is part of the US agenda. Since that agenda is motivated by a US political and economic crisis of a magnitude not seen since the 1930s, there is little likelihood Biden’s presidency would represent a radical departure from the current trend.
Of course, for Germany, France, and Italy to successfully resist US encroachment they would first need to transform the EU into something closer than a federation. The COVID-19 pandemic and the associated economic crisis already providing considerable impetus for such a transformation, America’s insatiable appetites might provide the rest.
Yes, execpt the article doesn’t mention the obvious. US Government is a wholly owned subsidiary of The City of London, it serves the Zionist Khazar criminal Banking Cabal exclusively. The Cabal runs US Government having slowly replaced the Congress with Bolsheviks. The Cabal controls the illusion there’s two political party’s in US Government. The illusion serves to divide the people, keeping them divided. Also to conceal the fact there’s only one political party. The Cabal. UN is owned by The City of London. NATO countries are leveraged by their debt to the Cabal, using debt as a weapon to bring compliance. US Government is the next step for unruly allies, forcing compliance. I disagree that Trump has had nothing to do with with the prevailing conditions between the allies and US Government. Trump has much to do with the divide, directly, and indirectly. Trump is the Cabal’s agent, acting at the direction of his master’s.
Well said and to quote Henry Kissinger, “any people that has been persecuted for two thousand years must be doing something wrong”.
Stalin learned from a Chinese which plundered his own citicens down to the last bread and said: If they have nothing, they will work harder.
I gave you upvote but i dont agree with the bolsheviks part. Please learn more about bolsheviks before using them in a wrong comparison again. Rest of your comment is OK.
Very nice copy paste from a parrot. You vitally would renew Yourself a lot by changing the color of Your letters.
do you think that denmark or germany or france willingly would give their respective armies marching orders to russia to defeat the evil russians. no way. in that quest the dysfunctional states of A would be all alone except estonia (idiots), lithuania (idiots) latvia (idiots) and poland with the most severe inferiority complex you can imagine (and unusually dumb as well). nato is mostly for show now a days and its use has dwindled to close to nothing lately (after libya).
Russians can’t escape of being haunted by the images of marching armies. Today economic and information war is the norm.
Fear and selfmade deep state is doing well there too.
Russia had collapsed, if they had Trump:)
And USA had collapsed if they had Putin, but if Denmark had Hitler you were typing from Moscow now.
If we didnt do as we did it also makes sense, that I neve rwas born.
That’s what I’m talking about
Why not? They did under the 3rd Reich why not under the 4th?
The invention of nuclear weapons changed the game significantly. And the fact that everyone know Russia has the best nuclear weapons and means of delivering them, is reducing those willing to attack Russia to few seriously stupid ones. USA would attack Russia immediately if they thought they can win, but they know they cant, so that is why they did not attack Russia yet.
What a stupid comment.
Things are not about winning wars by nukes or anything else but keeping the peace wasting no money for that.
EU (and Nato) certainly has done that and even name it “Peace dividend”
We easy could make bigger arms including nukes, if we wanted to. Russia in Economy and GDP is like Spain, Canada or South Korea. The economical dwarf seemes big because it spend somuch in the military parts. The only usefull stuff there are godd missiles. Those are exported and doing well.
what a stupid comment. US is the only one ever to hae used nukes on civilian target. The GDP says nothing about the real economy. In the GDP game those who print their money and force others to dell them their resources for those printed litttle papers (the west) , will always win. But to really think that Russian industrial base is the size of Spain is real stupid. And yes Russia is the curent leader in rocket, nuclear and military technology worldwide.
So how many millions did USSR spend for nothing.The civilians was millions. The soldiers were millions.
The estimate for USA losses in Japan was 200.000.
Rusia systematicly burn own civilian houses, road, bridges, burned crops, didnt try to save a single Jew. Leningrad HAD NO FOOD. Is that responsability making a great army under big siification and then move almost all troops from the Stalin Line build for billions.
Its Your fault Nazis went that far. But You didnt nuke them – haha.
US nuclear bombing of civilian targets did not cause Japan to consider surendering. They knew US did not have more bombs. Nuclear bombing of civilian targets did not make any damage to Japans army. It only made them more angry. They only surendered after Red army defeated their army in Mandzuria.
Leningrad did not have food because of Germans and Finnish siege of the city. Russia saved most of the jews, that were saved, because it was the red army that liberated most concentration camps.
Most numerous victims of the war were not jews, but slavic nations. And Russia saved them all from total extermination.
I totally agree, they won’t attack until they’re completely secure In their war plan.
apple and pears -there are no hard feelings in europe towards russia and today’s anti-russia narrative is driven by the disjointed states of A plus the dumbed down mini-states on the baltic plus the dumb poles.
I see hard feelings too. For now we will get problems with no oil and gas. Russia probarly will collapse with no sales. in those matters we are in the same boat.
Nato as well as EU also are to keep all in line and educate people to wellfare in stead.
As I wrote above the USA blame us for not having enough military forces. We dont want that even we should pay our part.
But we so defend the little ones regaining and will defend their rights to decide themselves. Its very strange for Danes having traditions with a lot of trade with Poles, The Baltics and Poles that the Bolsjevis closed that down and even made a wall, so people could no escape from their bad Neocolonialisme.
Russia now has a more correct seize and we will try to keep them in line as tradepartners. What will we get taking Russia?? More Russians – haha.
I live in EU/NATO country and the education standards as well as availability of healtcare is going down. Education is now well bellow the standards set by comunists before 1989.
Its a matter of choise and have that choise. I see the private spending has raised and more then doubled since fx 1989. There You unfortunatly has Your and my money for improved or remainded better education and wellfare.
Communists has never set any standards here unless You are some kind of right wing konservative or fascist.
Unlike you, i was born and lived in a comunistic country and i now live in a capitalistic country, so i can directly compare. In terms of education standards and availabilty, healthcare availability and social standards, comunism was way ahead of capitalism in my country and in all of ex-Warsaw pac countries. Regarding education this applies also to no ex-Warsaw pact countries.
So why did Your Mecca and Medina wellfare system collapse.
Nothing collapsed. Soviet elites betrayed the just society idea.
Thats right. It always has been for defence against Russia west of Berlin and in Kaliningrad.
nato is largely funded by USA—nearly irrelevant….the EU an American creation is disintegrating—riven w division…BREXIT….a majority of Italians want out…..only the impoverished BALTIC, Poles need EU….this allows them to send their janitors , carpenters to Western Europe to displace the lazy incompetents there…the increasing xenophobia in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, UK, Netherlands etc (increasing restrictions imposed on asylum seekers) predicts irrelevance of the EU/NATO
You bias and lie as hell. You dirtyu scumbag.
We do import laubor from Eastern Europe and often they are cheeper and sometimes also not as good as Ours. The system is made to support a needed money flow to compensate for the Russian plundering and a lack of education as well.
And Denmark has no NO UNOMPLYMENT apart from about half of the muslims, which we last paid about 3 BILLION DOLLARS for. We never asked them to come here at all. We cerrainly never asked them to come here and do nopthing the rest of their misarable lives.
So anybody can go to Your home and stay there doing nothing apart for critiseizing the mouths feeding them – And until they are send home in a box. If that insist in sending home, they not even live here.
And Yes, You might name it as zenofobia. Why do they choose us and stay among Christians and Infidels for muslims ??? Why dont they change any of their systems, som they can get a life, where they come from.
Now 5 million Syrians are not in Syria. Why dont they arm themselves and removes Assads and a few others.
Name it as You wish. Emmigrants move TO USA as well. To, to. I ahve heard Trump and others in the top ask for that.
The reason they come is because they come from something much worse. So if You dont like Our oppinion and what we do You should relate to “worse”.
As written above we dont have lazybums but upgrade those people of Ours. And we have another problem telling the popåulation is growing old, so we need Young ones as replacements.
Only few from Eastarn Europe are no good. They are not good here AS WELL.
Authors are missing fact that Trump is withdrawing from international institutions dominated by british financial empire (TPP, WHO, Paris climate accords) and is pushing in direction that would end Nato exciting Afganistan, softening North Korea.. And all anti-russia hysteria comes from UK. Macron (rostschilt agent) is doing his best to replace NATO by an EU (banker) army
No, they are not. The isolation politic is back for everything by Trump. Maybee he also think The Monroe Doctrin was made for Marilyn Monroe and Churchill tanks was named after Winston.
USA by that politic tryed to avoid being involved in WW1 and WW2 but was denied by agressors.
Putting in Britts makes no sense and must be some Trame Fobia in Your mind. Maybee You saw Monthy Pyton too much and the color of Kermit was wrong.

This is the part of the problem that Alex Jones rarely talks about:
These are the people playing the bioterror card with their US and worldwide msm media machine and Jew/dem combine running the scamdemic, economic and social destruction of America, starvation in the third world, and implosion of the world economy. They are enemies of the state and humanity. Judaism needs to be abolished on our planet so that it’s Jew free. By outlawing it and permanently closing the synagogues and yeshivas.
In case anyone old enough to remember the big three TV networks in the US; CBS, NBC and ABC. Lets not forget ABC. This is the current president:
“Dana Freedman was born to a Jewish family”
This is the brainwashing operation that has been going on in Jew infested American culture for generations:
“How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by: News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish), Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish), Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish), Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew), Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish), CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel), MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish) and NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish). If either of the Weinstein brothers had signed, this group would have not only the power to shut down all film production but to form a minyan with enough Fiji water on hand to fill a mikvah.
The person they were yelling at in that ad was SAG President Alan Rosenberg (take a guess). The scathing rebuttal to the ad was written by entertainment super-agent Ari Emanuel (Jew with Israeli parents) on the Huffington Post, …
The Jews are so dominant, I had to scour the trades to come up with six Gentiles in high positions at entertainment companies. When I called them to talk about their incredible advancement, five of them refused to talk to me, apparently out of fear of insulting Jews. The sixth, AMC President Charlie Collier, turned out to be Jewish.”
– Who runs Hollywood? C’mon –
Republicans rarely elect Jews. 43 out of 45 US Jew legislators are democrats. 20% of democratic senators are Jews. And 15% of democratic congressman are Jews. 0% of republican or independent senators are Jews. And 1% of republican congressman are Jews.
“Although Jews make up 2 percent of the U.S. population, nearly 7 percent of the new Congress is Jewish, with 36 Jews among the total of 535 lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. In the Senate, the 9 Jews members comprise 9 percent of that body.
All of the Jews in the Senate are Democrats, as are all but two in the House. The Republican exceptions are Reps. Lee Zeldin and David Kustoff, from New York and Tennessee, respectively. They are the only non-Christian Republicans in the Congress, according to a report by Pew.
This Congress has six more Jews than its predecessor, which had 30 Jewish members. The record was the 1993 Congress, which included 51 Jews — nearly 10 percent of the total.”
– Jewish Members of the 116th Congress (2019-2021) –
And You cant be a pain in somebodies behing havon no carrot too.
You never line up how many million Germans or Irish there are.
You still dont understand Your own facts. Its not about Jews but that educated people reach higher rank and often do it, because its also well paid.
Parts of USA hardly has that tradition as well as some of the whites prevent others get an education giving them a bad school as a start and all has to pay a lot to get and education.
It is possible to solve fx by parallel version of Obama care.
Education is the reason for Western Economy is doing well compared to others. Its driven by that and not Jews.
It seemes You have had a permanent shutdown Yourself.
The problem that I have with the Icke material is the lack of supporting evidence. Whether it’s reptilians or his claim in this video that COVID-19 doesn’t exist and has never been isolated. When Alex Jones and others say that it’s been looked at with an electron microscope and has been determined to be an artificial construct.
Alex Jones provides a lot of credible supporting evidence for his work. Icke provides little or none for his.
NATO is a zio entity that has been a Jew world order global hegemony Yinon plan forever war creation for it’s entire existence. Israel/Palestine, the US, France, Canada and the UK contain 93% of the planet’s Jews. If you add the rest of NATO it’s 95%. Jews are the driving force behind much of the planet’s problems. Judaism should be abolished so that the planet is Jew free.
– Jewish population by country –
“As of 2018, the world’s “core” Jewish population, those identifying as Jews above all else, was 14.6 million. The “connected” Jewish population, including those who say they are partly Jewish or that have Jewish background from at least a single Jewish parent, in addition to the core Jewish population, was 17.8 million. The “enlarged” Jewish population, including those who say they have Jewish background but not a Jewish parent, and all non-Jewish household members who live in households with Jews, in addition to the Jewish connected population, was 20.7 million. The Law of Return Jewish population, which counts all those eligible to immigration to Israel under its Law of Return, was 23.5 million.”
– Jewish population by country –
My perspective is that the Jews have lost their Jew world order global hegemony plan drive in the Syrian war. To Russian military and Chinese economic superiority. And are now rolling out their global bioterror Sampson omnicide plan to enslave and kill us all. The solution to this problem is the abolition of Judaism and the replacement of Israel with a unified Palestine to create a Jew free world.
I don’t have the aversion to truth that Alex Jones and many others have. I was banned on the Infowars, VT and many other sites for truthing about Jew crime and evil. The truth that you read on these comment boards is prohibited on 99% of the internet. Which is indicative of the extent of humanity’s Jew problem. And why it needs to be resolved by getting rid of them.
The version of Yours is well written but higly biased. There are many headlines for that.
A good example is that Europe has grown in seize influence and GDP but not much in military matters. Here You almost ignore EU beingalmost number one and ignore they and we are not number one agaist Russia. Here we fx are blamed by USA for not taking Our part.
I can agree in the last part. We should pay more and USA should leave more.
And of course the new Nato and EU members are thinner, but they do fear Russia for good reasons after they have been in Neicolonialisme since 1945 and Russians evne are angry, when they dare to tell that from Stalin to Putin never was their father or mother.
It would make sense You compared a little more with Russia itself and it own devellopment problems still have lacks all over from a collapse made by Yourself. There is no sign the good advices, which works, aew followed. It more like Darwin in wrong because Russians with Putin still are born with ears.
You are right. We do have a lot of problems, but we can debate them and do and also make changes tryingnot to exclude. Thin including is better then excluding for us.
And we do invest in being more independent according ebergy and heat by having the best investment programs in the whole world for it. We – sic – even produce and invest them in USA.
The most visible and wide spreading example are windpower systems all over the world and EU in front. They still devellop and specialize, so they make plus compared to gas and oil.
None of us like to be that independet of USA as You insinuate. We have Our own world companies as well. Thank You. maybee You has never heard about fx Shall, BP and Total???
Your last words about we should be a confedaration before we can decide more Ourself is verically incorrect. Our world is based on the stockmarket and a Western Economy WITH THEM. So we own them too and down to my pension fund, which has for many millions in the America stockmarket as well.
Big american as well as others are cosmopolites in Ownership. Instead of understanding that little Yiu fx could be owner and take profit. I do by my pension fund being owner of Proctor & Gamble. Norway by oil money has 1% of it and many others.
We are not local kombinates not even able to produce a car.
