I am not sure, no matter what the “evidence” from social media to pictures of tanks that could be taken anywhere ( notice the same damn ones popping up all the time?) the US/NATO war machinery can be stopped. By the way, ever wonder what happened to MH17’s black box? Everything from the mouth of this administration is a lie, but then when it comes to war and foreign affairs so it has been with every administration since 1898 and with every single war America has entered, all of which, all of them, under false pretexts.
What total and complete bullshit, NATO needs a renewed purpose? Of course they do, all that bureaucracy, all of those generals and military men and the industrial/finance complexes that supports them needs a new purpose? For what end. All bureaucracies are like giant amoebas adapting for their instinctive survival to the conditions around them. NATO has been flailing around for purpose since 1990 that is why they sought to expand and push upon Russia’s borders, it is hwy they gladly sought to bomb the living hell out of Libya on the word of one very conflicted report from one rather questionable character–not to save the “people of Libya” from the best thing that has ever happened to them, the Qadhafi regime, but to flex the muscles like they did in the Balkans and find that wonderful, elusive sense of “Renewed Purpose.” A purpose that unfortunately for many means bombs and blood.
If you think this organization did this for your well being and safety our America’s national interest or the national interests of anyone for that matter, take your last toke and leave the Denver smoke shop. And if you think the NATO needs to renew its purpose over the Baltic States and the Ukraine because Russia does not like having a ring of fire and missiles on all of its border and is pushing back, maybe you had better stay and buy another bag of the really, really good stuff? It is a tad like Iran. Look at a map of the military bases the US has encircling that nation and tell me if you were they you might not be a tad anxious? Do your research, I mean real research, away from the propaganda, discard you national hubris and American quick judgments, all manipulated by the State and then ask yourself, who really is at fault here?
NATO is finding renewed purpose after struggling to maintain itself in the post-Cold War period. The organization was created to counterbalance the might of the Soviet Union after World War II, but the Soviet collapse in 1991 removed the threat around which NATO had been formed. As the alliance struggled to redefine its strategic focus, three broad trends emerged. First, there was a steady decline in defense spending by NATO member countries. Second, there was the general downsizing of military forces that corresponded with increases in firepower and potency. Third, there was an expansion of the organization to include several former Soviet states, thereby exposing much of the Soviet core.
Obama is a Liar. Fake NATO Evidence. OSCE Confirms that No Russian Troops, No Tanks, have Crossed the Russia-Ukraine Border
The following report is a slap in the face to president Obama and his NATO partners meeting today in Newport Wales. Obama confirmed on September 3 that “Russian combat forces with Russian weapons in Russian tanks” had been deployed in Eastern Ukraine.
That’s not only a Lie, it is Lie which could potentially precipitate humanity into a Third World War.
Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) “have registered no troops, ammunition or weapons crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border over the past two weeks” (Itar-Tass)
“Throughout the week, the Observer Teams noticed a net increase of young people (both men and women) wearing military-style dress crossing the border in both directions but did not observe any weapons among these groups,” the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission’s report covering a period from August 20 to September 3 said.
The observers said they had regular interactions with supporters of the self-proclaimed republics. “Some discussed openly with the OSCE while others expressed their total mistrust toward the OSCE. At both Border Crossing Points, some supporters of the self-proclaimed republics explained that they are not allowed to cross the border with weapons,” the report said.
The observers registered a decrease in helicopter sightings compared to last week but they were still observed at border crossing points flying at low altitude along the border.
“In either case, in as far as could be seen, the aircraft did not violate the Ukrainian airspace,” the report said. (Ibid)
The OSCE Observer Mission is deployed at the Russian Checkpoints of Gukovo and Donetsk at the request of Russia’s government. The decision was taken in a consensus agreement by all 57 OSCE participating States, many of which are represented at the NATO Summit in Wales.
