NATO was formed as an alliance for war, not peace. Cold War hyperbole incited fear. An arms race followed. So did permanent wars with or without NATO. From Truman to Obama they raged. They still do. NATO's dirty hands operate in multiple theaters.
It's a killing machine. America runs it. Leading EU member states include Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, and Belgium. In total, 21 EU nations are NATO members.
They're allied for war, not peace. They're a dagger pointed at humanity's heart. NATO has global ambitions. It includes ravaging countries everywhere.
Maybe Nobel Committee members don't pay attention to what's ongoing. Perhaps turning a blind eye colors their thinking.
Their tradition is long and inglorious. Consider past war criminal winners. Henry Kissinger may qualify as the worst of the lot. His resume includes:
- three to four million Southeast Asian Vietnam War deaths;
- the bloody overthrow of Chile's Salvador Allende; Augusto Pinochet's reign of terror;
- support for some of the worst global despots;
- Indonesia's Surharto was one; Kissinger backed his bloody West Papua takeover; he also encouraged his East Timor genocide;
- support for Cambodia's Khmer Rouge, its rise to power and reign of terror;
- backing of Pakistan's overthrow of Bangladesh's democratically elected government; a half million deaths followed;
- his 1974 National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) advocated genocide; he called it forced world population control; he wanted worthless eaters removed; he recommended eliminating 500 million people by 2000 and millions more annually; and
- numerous other global crimes against humanity were committed during his tenure as Nixon and Ford's National Security Advisor and Secretary of State. He served as administration Svengali.
In 2001, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the world body won. It was "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world."
Throughout his tenure, Annan violated the UN Charter's mandate. It's to "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war"."
Instead, he supported imperial lawlessness. He spurned peace. He never condemned or tried to end devastating Iraq sanctions. They killed around 1.5 innocent men, women and children. He stood by, watched, and did nothing.
