The tactical nuclear cudgel is a double-edged sword

While NATO leaders are preparing for the summit in Wales (4-5 September), and thinking about how to ‘punish’ Russia, as it were, for the fact that she is not following the lead of Western powers on the Ukrainian issue, it is about time we recalled one of the main components of the Alliance’s military potential – tactical nuclear weapons on the ground in Europe... At the present time, US nuclear weapons are deployed at six air force bases in five NATO countries – Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Turkey...

NATO and US Special Services Beachhead in Colombia

Colombia wanted to cooperate with NATO on Afghanistan. It was in the plans. In 2009, the Colombian Government asked to be part of the ISAF (the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan) and work with the Spanish contingent in the mine detection operations, but this didn't materialize due to the internal conflict that Colombia faced... Then President Alvaro Uribe considered the fact that his country was invited to take part in the fight against the Taliban as substantiation to claim the status of US Latin American privileged partner... The US has strong military presence in Colombia under the pretext of fighting drug trafficking and guerilla formations...

INF Violation Hits Radar Screen amid Rising Tensions over Ukraine

It has just been announced that Russian and US experts will meet in September to discuss a bilateral agreement. This is an important event against the background of rising tensions over Ukraine. The U.S. has recently informed its NATO allies about American concerns over a possible breach of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) by Moscow banning all ground-based nuclear-capable missiles with range from 500 to 5,500 km... A lukewarm conflict between Russia and the US has been drawing on for a number of years with mutual accusations at experts’ level. Minor treaty violations are a routine matter to be tackled by working groups. It is usually solved without any media attention, but tensions hiked over Ukraine have caused the matter to spill into the open and get blown out of proportion...

Dangerous Crossroads: US-NATO To Deploy Ground Troops, Conduct Large Scale Naval Exercises against “Unnamed Enemy”

The World is at a dangerous Crossroads. The Western military alliance is in an advanced state of readiness. And so is Russia. Russia is heralded as the “Aggressor”. US-NATO military confrontation with Russia is contemplated. Enabling legislation in the US Senate under “The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA) has “set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.”

NATO to Step on War Path: Back to Early 80s

NATO intensifies war preparations as the date of summit in Cardiff slated for September 4-5 is drawing near. Climate-controlled caves in Norway now house a new stock of Marine military gear and vehicles. On August 10, USS Dewayne T. Williams, a maritime prepositioning force ship, dropped anchor in Namdalseid, Norway’s Trøndelag region, to unload some 400 vehicles and 350 containers of equipment to be stored in Norwegian caves. The US Marine Corps has stashed weapons and equipment in the Norwegian countryside since the 1980s. Now the US military is updating its stockpile with M1A1 main battle tanks, tank retrievers, armored breaching vehicles, amphibious assault vehicles, expanded capacity vehicle gun trucks, and a few variants of 7½ ton trucks... It’s a good thing that there are voices within NATO calling for efforts to reach mutual understanding and start a constructive negotiation process instead of sabre rattling and economic warfare. There is also a hope for better days to come.

Kosovo and Ukraine: US-NATO Operations, Compare and Contrast

There have been at least two countries in Europe in recent history that undertook ‘anti-terrorist’ military operations against ‘separatists’, but got two very different reactions from the Western elite.

Will Cameron Prevail Over Germany?

On August 4 Prime Minister David Cameron visited the NATO Allied headquarters in Brussels. Formally the event was timed with the marking the 100 year anniversary of the British Empire’s entrance into the First World War, but Russia and the events in Ukraine were the issues to dominate the discussions. A few days before visiting HQ in Mons he had sent a letter to other NATO leaders. It says that as the mission in Afghanistan is winding up the alliance should re-focus on deterring Russia as before. The military expenditure of each member should not be lower than 2% of GDP.

Russia’s UN Initiative – Chance for Peace as NATO Mulls Stockpiling in Eastern Europe

NATO’s top Europe commander believes the alliance should preposition weapons, ammunition and all kinds of supplies in Poland to support the deployment of a large force in case of hostilities with Russia... The stockpiling of supplies is just a step short of a permanent massive deployment of foreign NATO troops in Poland... The US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey said that among other actions, the U.S. military is dusting off decades-old plans, just in case... According to him, Russia’s actions in Ukraine signaled a significant «change in the relationship of the U.S. and Russia,» but America’s first response should be to look at NATO and the role it played against the Soviet Union a half century ago...

Poroshenko, Obama Sailing in Same Boat?

Barack Obama had a phone conversation with Petro Poroshenko, the President of civil war-torn Ukraine. He assured him that the United States will lend a helping hand. «We are sailing in the same boat», he said. Looks like a boat is too small for Kiev, it would prefer it to be a cruiser size ship or even an aircraft carrier. Poroshenko told CNN on July 21 that he wants Ukraine to become MNNA (Major Non-NATO Ally) to bring it under the US military «umbrella» without the participation in the North Atlantic Alliance... Washington is happy about the fact that a number of former Soviet republics are motivated to side with the United States in its confrontation with Russia. But there are reasonable people who doubt the US Ukraine policy could be a success after the failures in Iraq, Afghanistan, during the Arab Spring, including Syria.

Western Doublethink on Blind Path to War

...The US-led NATO alliance this week announced that it intends consolidating its military presence in Eastern Europe, the Black Sea and the Baltic states. Ahead of a NATO summit in Wales, NATO secretary Anders Fogh Rasmussen has called for the setting up of «reactive battalions» along Russia’s border. The contingency would include the eventual placement of ballistic missiles and it builds on recent dispatches of NATO warships and fighter aircraft in the region... Economic sanctions imposed by Washington and its European allies – the latest round announced this week – are applied with the same reckless abandon as NATO build-up. No concrete evidence of alleged Russian malfeasance in Ukraine is produced to validate sanctions or NATO battle plans...
