NATO’s existence is redundant!

People around the world don’t want war in any setting. And everybody across the world wants this problem to be solved not by war, but by diplomacy.

There are a total of 30 countries who are members of NATO. The last country to sign up was North Macedonia on March 27, 2020. The alliance state that they have an open-door policy when it comes to countries wanting to join. However, they must be prepared to meet certain criteria to gain membership under the covert drubbing by Uncle Sam.

NATO’s fundamental goal is to safeguard the Allies’ freedom and security by political and military means. NATO remains the so-called principal security instrument of the transatlantic community and expression of its common democratic values, but covertly dictated by the US administration.

The most recent figures published by NATO shows the US is the single largest contributor to the alliance. Based on NATO estimates for 2021, the US contributes 1.4 million armed personnel, making up 41% of the 3.3-million-armed personnel in the alliance. The remaining 59% come from Canada and European countries.

The Warsaw Pact was declared at an end on 25 February 1991 and the Czechoslovak President, Vaclav Havel, formally declared an end to it on 1 July 1991. So, the NATO’s existence is redundant!

The European Union (EU) is an economic and political union of 28 countries. It operates an internal (or single) market which allows free movement of goods, capital, services and people between member states. And the EU is also not beyond the hegemonic influence of America.

The two largest countries in Europe are now at war. The immediate cause of this situation has been the expansion of NATO and its project to constrict its imperial competitor, Russia, by establishing large bases of troops and mass-destructive weapons along its western and southern borders and the massive arming and training of Ukrainian forces and paramilitaries especially by the British. The ugly duckling of Uncle Sam, being the most powerful member of NATO, has been using other NATO members for its own interests since its formation in 1949.

Remembering the brutish 1971 war waged on our nation by Pakistan like a rogue country in collusion with abominable Uncle Sam, we cause to feel intense dislike or distaste for the present Russia and Ukraine war!!

Whatever news items and video clippings have now been releasing via media and social media outlets on the current war between Russia and Ukraine are commanded by Uncle Sam and its mango-twig nations. Truth is evil designedly buried.

On the basis of human loss, any war is unjust and immoral. Who among us can put a premium on human life?

Peace and stability themselves are the fruit of justice. We want peace and harmony in and around Ukraine and everywhere across the world, not war, violence…

The war with Ukraine was not expected to be waged by Russia. But brazen-faced Uncle Sam deliberately Incited Russia unabatedly to attack Ukraine. The Devil is also referred to as the Satan. America has many faces and its ill-bred face will soon come-out! One can legitimately condemn some aspects of Moscow’s behaviour before the war was started by Russia, but the force of America’s moral outrage is vitiated by the stench of U.S. hypocrisy!

People around the world don’t want war in any setting. And everybody across the world wants this problem to be solved not by war, but by diplomacy.

24th February last war was started by Russia with Ukraine. At least for throughout one month beforehand, if any one reads the statements by Biden, Blinken and their mango-twigs in media outlets, one will find the answer.

Uncle Sam started stirring up Russia to attack Ukraine to understand the capability of Russia’s power after the break-up of Soviet Union. America previously believed Russia has not that much of power to launch assault on Ukraine. Moreover, if America has come forward to fight back Russia, nations of NATO power, Israel (Israel is the most favourite country to USA) will in no time stand-by Uncle Sam, fight and crush Russia at once, but no one responded to America once the war has begun.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that overt fascism is well ensconced in the political system of Ukraine and in its military. In the last few weeks US and British arms have been imported on a massive scale to the Baltic countries without regard to the financial or human cost.

It is clear that it will be the working classes of Russia and the Ukraine that will pay the heaviest price in this on-going military conflict. We express solidarity with the working classes of Russia and Ukraine and with communists in both countries and we share the heartbreak of soldiers and their families, victims of inter-imperialist warfare.

These developments show the baneful consequences of the expansion of the NATO war alliance. They also represent the need for the governments concerned to draw attention away from their political and economic failures. The European Union in particular played a major role in the coup of 2014 to undermine Ukraine and continues to work to subsume that country into its construct.

Democratic forces across Europe must find unity and united action to demand the dismantling of the aggressive military alliance of NATO and to oppose the EU-PESCO military build-up. The hypocrisy of the western imperial power knows no bounds, in particular that of American in collusion with British imperialism and its role and interference in the affairs of the people across the world for centuries and which continues to deny the right of the people of all those nations to self-determination and the establishment of an independent sovereign state.

The current situation confronts us with the spectre of an inter-imperialist nuclear war. There is an urgent need for neutral and non-aligned states to join together to work for nuclear disarmament and the dissolution of war alliances. There is a great opportunity for the NATO and EU nations and similar other nations to use their memberships of the UN Security Council to take an independent stand appropriate to a sovereign state, stop the on-going war between Russia and Ukraine and resolve all conflicts amicably.

In these dark days in Europe, it should not be forgotten that western powers are pursuing their warring activities such as supporting Saudi Arabia in its continual slaughter in Yemen and supplying it with bomber aircraft and armaments resulting in the devastation of urban areas. Like the wars in Africa that conflict is largely ignored by western media. Supporting proxy wars both large and small, as well as using illegal sanctions and subversion to advance and protect its economic, political and strategic military interests globally.

Hypocrisy and double standards are standard elements of imperialism by Uncle Sam getting support by NATO members. They have waged numerous illegal wars across the global to advance and defend the interests of global corporations and monopoly capitalism. War and threats of war are constant tools of imperialist powers for both economic and strategic reasons.

Attempting to undermine the sovereignty of Venezuela, Nicaragua, Iran and DPR Korea in particular, states of different ideological basis are subject to continual threats and harassment. Sanctions applied to these and other countries inevitably damage the lives of the very poorest of citizens. Such sanctions are often of dubious legality especially when imposed by Uncle Sam and its mango-twigs – the EU and NATO member countries.

We call for an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine and a political solution within the UN-negotiated Minsk Agreements of 2014. Such a solution would encompass a demilitarised, neutral Ukraine, with all foreign forces and mercenaries removed and the dismantling of neo-fascist para-military groupings.

Our neutrality must be enshrined with the peace-loving peoples of the world, not the armies of imperialism. And NATO must be dismantled in the greater interests for the world society and for a peaceful world.
