The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is undertaking a dangerous and provocative global expansion that threatens the peace of the world, award-winning global analyst Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya writes in a new book.
It's a view and a book that has some very distinguished supporters, including former UN Genral Assembly President Father Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann and former Chair of the UN Working Group on Mercenaries, Jose L. Gomez del Prado, among other global notables. Former UN Assistant Secretary-General Denis J. Halliday has written the Foreword.
By the time NATO started its war on Libya in March 2011, it was conducting oeprations in the Atlantic, Artic and Indian oceans, the Mediterranean and Red seas, and the Gulf of Aden, as well as in countries on three continents that included Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan and the former Yugoslavia, Nazemroaya says.
As part of these adventures, the U.S. and its NATO allies have lowered "a new iron curtain" from the Baltic to the Aegean "to contain the European core of Russia and its allies in Eastern Enrope," Nazemroayoa writes. He points out that Sergey Markov, co-chair of the National Strategies Council of Russia, described the 2008 war between Georgia and South Ossetia as being, in effect, "A U.S. attack on Russia."
However, "NATO expansion is not just limited to Europe, but is in pursuit of a worldwide capability to expand Washington's empire under a global confederacy," Nazemroaya writes in The Globalization of NATO (Clarity Press).
He warns the expansion will eventually lead "to East Asia and the borders of the Chinese were the U.S. has been waging a shadow war to box China in and checkmate it."
