NATO Expansion Onto Global Stage Dangerous Threat To World Peace

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is undertaking a dangerous and provocative global expansion that threatens the peace of the world, a distinguished geopolitical analyst Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya writes in a new book.


By the time NATO started its war on Libya in March, 2011, it was conducting operations in the Atlantic, Arctic and Indian oceans, the Mediterranean and Red seas, and the Gulf of Aden, as well as in countries on four 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 castrate and contain the European core of Russia and its allies in Eastern Europe,” Nazemroaya writes. He points out that Sergey Markov, co-chair of the National Strategic 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,” writes distinguished Canadian sociologist Nazemroaya in The Globalization of NATO(Clarity Press).


He warns the expansion will eventually lead “to East Asia and the borders of the Chinese where the U.S. has been waging a shadow war to box China in and checkmate it.”


“The U.S. and NATO have literally authorized themselves to go to war anywhere in the world,” Nazemroaya continues. The 2010 Strategic Concept of NATO, which was drafted by a committee chaired by Madeleine Albright and vice-chaired by former Royal Dutch Shell CEO Jeroen van der Veer, “also asserts the legitimacy of whatever actions NATO members take to secure energy sources as the U.S. and NATO look towards securing all the world’s energy hubs.”


Besides expanding its area of operations, since the end of the Cold War, NATO’s nuclear strike posture has become more aggressive. “Within NATO and among U.S. allies a consensus has long been established to legitimize and normalize the idea of using nuclear weapons in conventional wars,” Nazemroaya says. “This consensus also aims to pave the way for pre-emptive nuclear strikes against targets like Russia, China, and Iran.”


Most of the world’s countries, he points out, argue the U.S. and its NATO allies have violated Articles 1 and 2 of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), because the Pentagon has a NATO nuclear weapons sharing program. In addition, “Through its continued construction of nuclear weapons the United States is the chief violator of the NPT and the chief cause for the development of Russian and Chinese nuclear weapons,” Nazemroaya writes.


He observes that Russia, too, is re-arming itself with nuclear weapons and has the largest nuclear arsenal in the world because Moscow strongly believes its nukes “are what have stood in the way of U.S. attempts to pummel Russia.” What’s more, Russia has copied the adoption of the U.S./NATO pre-emptive nuclear attack doctrine.


He goes on to say, “Washington has made it categorically clear that it could attack Iran and North Korea with nukes.” Nazemroaya notes the Obama administration says it will not honor NPT’s provisions barring a nuclear attack on certain non-nuclear states, “meaning Iran and North Korea.” Obama says those two countries aren’t complying with the NPT.


“This was a fallacious claim,” Nazemroaya continues, as in the case of the Iranians, the IAEA “has repeatedly reported that it has not found any evidence that Tehran has a nuclear weapons program and is in breach of NPT.” And North Korea withdrew from the NPT in 2003.


In a Foreword to the book, NATO is described by former Assistant UN Secretary-General Denis Halliday as a “dangerous instrument” of U.S. aggression that is undermining the United Nations and “must be abolished.”


Authorities around the world have showered Nazemroaya with praise for his work in general and The Globalization of NATO in particular. “I hope this book will be read by very, very many who can turn this morbid fascination with violence into constructive conflict resolution,” writes Johan Galtung, Professor Emeritus of Peace Studies and Sociology at the University of Oslo, Norway, and recognized as the founder of peace and conflict studies.


“This book is a must read for those committed to reversing the tide of war and imperial conquest by the world’s foremost military machine,” adds Michel Chossudovsky, Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Ottawa, Canada.


Again, “Nazemroaya’s book, in addition to reminding us that the role of the United Nations has been confiscated by NATO, elaborates the danger that the North Atlantic Treaty represents to world peace,” writes Jose L. Gomez Del Prado, former Chairman of the United Nations Working Group on the Use of Mercenaries, of Ferney-Voltaire, France. And, in the words of Tiberio Graziani, President of the Institute of Advanced Studies in Geopolitics, of Rome, “This is a book really necessary to understanding the role of NATO within the frame of long-term U.S. strategy. It not only provides an articulate analysis on the Atlantic Alliance: it is the best modern text devoted to the hegemonic alliance. With this book Nazemroaya reconfirms his ability as a brilliant geopolitical analyst.”


Adds Admiral Vishnu Bhagwat, former Chief of the Naval Staff of India, “(Nazemroaya) is one of the prescient thinkers and writers of contemporary times who deserves to be read and acted upon by people with a conscience and concern for humanity’s future.” And Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann, former Foreign Minister of Nicaragua and President of the 63rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, said: “The Globalization of NATO by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya is simply magnificent, erudite and devoid of the ethnocentrism to which one has become so accustomed from Western authors…”

    Here is my take on this.

    NATO is in fact hunting the bad guys. Doing Free service for global peace.

    Scenario-1: During 9/11, had US a Democratic President: Taliban would be still ruling in Afghanistan and would be hijacking air-planes; exporting drugs and terrorizing world and women. No Music, No TV.

    Scenario-2: current -> Dangerous Terrorists are being hunted down by Drones. Countries would think twice before harboring terrorists.

    World sees nuclear war in two scenarios

    1) Iran – The Greatest Threat to Western Civilization – A Must Watch Movie
    Today Canada cut-off diplomatic relations with Iran.

    2) Indo-Pak war

    Distant Scenario: China attacks Japan/Taiwan/Vietnam and US gets involved during a Republican regime. US testing a hypersonic missile (not yet successful)

    Another unnecessary, not to say stupid and irresponsible article. NATO was created with the particular mission of becoming a “dangerous threat to Peace”, with the approval of the irresponsible and ignorant world. NATO officials must be very happy now, as Diana Collier, from Clarity Press, Inc and hopefully the entire world recognizes NATO is “achieving its goal.”

    The ONLY way to remove a “threat to World Peace” is to remove NATO and ALL Armed Forces. To insist on having Armies and Peace at the same time is as stupid as trying to have day and night at the same time, trying to be awake and asleep at the same time, trying to be dead and alive at the same time.

    The ONLY way to Peace in the world is the disappearance of NATO and of ALL Armed Forces.
