this is unofficial english traslation of a document of PCm Italy about last NATO SUMMIT in Poland - the txt is in 5 parts- this is the First Part - in the next days the others parts
The NATO Summit in Warsaw has been the most important in recent years, a culmination of a number of facts and events that have preceded the decisions made there, but also the starting point of a new phase containing all the elements for a new world war unfolded.
In this summit, with the presence of Obama, NATO is to be a general substitute for all the existing international organizations, economical but also political, on the world scene. It marks the militarization of the global economic dispute in the current structure of the US-led imperialism and the contents and military terms of the war for a new partition.
The NATO Summit has made clear years of debate on the theory and philosophy on the military option and established the rule of the military on politics and the economy, as a concentrate of politics and economics.
We are not facing a constituted world order but a constituting one, that, through an inner struggle, leads to the extreme consequences the concept of war as politics by other means for each imperialism involved.
The Summit establishes a single framework in which each imperialism is pursuing its own aims, and the Summit also showed them, even when they were disguised as common interests and views.
The main decision, highlighted by the media and also connected to the circumstance that the Summit was held in Warsaw, is to unleash a military offensive to East, with an anti-Russia purpose.
The NATO Secretary General said a sentence which must be read exactly into its opposite: “The Cold War is history and will remain so”, trying to put the idea idea that we are not witnessing a new phase of a global anti-Russia war; but the decisions made imply exactly the opposite: the transition from a “Cold War”, that is placed in the past, to a "hot war", of which any decision made is a preparation.
That is the decision to deploy on the beginning of 2017 four multinational battalions in Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, consisting of 5 thousand troops, under the command of the UK, US, Canada and Germany. Italy will send 150 soldiers (about Italy we will speak later). At the same time, a training camp for multinational brigades is created in Romania.
Therefore, these troops, are deployed in each country bordering Russia and they are mobile, in the sense that they can concentrate in each of the countries simultaneously. This decision is combined with the creation of weapons caches, the coordination of ground and naval forces in the Black Sea and, at the same time, revitalize the art. 5 of the Washington Treaty, reiterated as same reason of the existence of NATO. Art. 5 imposes that all NATO allies, US first, are due to rush to aid of an attacked country. Now it is evident that, with the troops positioned at the border, any accident, artificially provoked, becomes a pretext to invoke the Treaty and justify military intervention inside and against the “Russian enemy”.
It is also grotesque, typical of an undeclared war procedure, that NATO adopting these decisions, claims to not violate the Moscow agreement, prohibiting the presence of permanent NATO forces standing on the borders of Russia. The agreement is bypassed claiming that, being rotation troops, they would not be permanent...
No doubt about the nature of this move, other factors made it clear. Among these, the reactivation of the group of five countries to empower the pressure on Moscow in support to Ukraine.
Clearly, the press of the other imperialist countries having problems to tune in to the main needs of US imperialism and the transformation of Eastern Europe at the Russia's borders in satellites of the US imperialist policy, emphasize: first, that a Russian reaction is almost unavoidable; second, that these decisions will lead to countermeasures from Moscow – Russia is already reacting with the Iskander variable range missiles, placed in Kaliningrad. It is the balance of nuclear terror that from the opportunities falls on the ground of the possibilities.
The US-led imperialists gathered in Warsaw, know what they are doing, and insert new concepts into the usual dynamics of war.
The NATO summit has adopted and made official the concept of “hybrid war”, with which a whole series of facts which would not officially be open war are inserted into a vision of warfare. An often mentioned example is the use of soldiers without uniform to which Russia recurred in Crimea.
So, it is clear that NATO claim the right to call “acts of war”, “violations of agreements”, events and facts that are not, as a pretext for a real war, not at all “hybrid”.
It 'easy to understand, then, that the deployment of troops in Eastern European countries is already an action as a function of this kind of warfare.
Even the issue of art. 5 of the treaty has been not only confirmed but explicitly supported at the Summit, adding that, in order to make it real, it must be supported by “guarantees” on the ground. Therefore, from being a “response” to an external aggression, it is now openly theorized as a “response” to be already prepared; in other words, they operate as if the attack was already under way and prepare the conditions for acting.
Facing this plan that is openly warmongering expansion, the other imperialists play the game of “two cards”. On the one hand they take side with it, on the other hand they, Germany, France, Italy, try to use it to re-established the trust with Russia, which means the maintenance of huge economic and commercial interests.
It is clear that the objective result of this can only be, far way from the trust, a sharpening of the dispute that, the more it deploys, will overwhelm the economic and commercial interests and put on the foreground again the underlying matter, the role as ruling hegemonic power of US imperialism, to which Obama dedicated his frenetic activism in the recent months. In other words, the unleashing of a political, diplomatic, military, 360 degrees offensive in all the theaters of war in the world, which leads us to consider the Obama presidency, a preparation to a new world war to defend and expand the domain of US imperialism and continue in the global division, putting an end to the old feud with Russian imperialism and, in the bud, to the new one with China.
Incidentally, we can say that Hillary Clinton right now looks like a kind of moderate variation, while Trump, internally hyper-fascist, internationally, according to his statements, looks like a new isolationist, and therefore much less warmonger than Obama.
But we know well that the US presidents do not make the foreign policy in spite of their powers, but they are only an expression of deep interests which prevail on their promises.
Another important issue is the relationship between the NATO Summit and the Brexit.
All statements in the Summit reported the exact meaning of the story of the referendum.
The British imperialism through the Brexit is merely taking up the policy of “hands free” always practiced, and the Brexit now gives them the chance to be even more explicitly the great ally of US, and thus fully aligned with the interests of US imperialism compared to the economical, political and military hesitations of other European imperialists.
So, for the British imperialism the "popular vote" is a real new impulse in the international arena. Certainly US are less happy, because they did not dislike that UK imperialism was playing its role within the EU, conditioning even from this position the general moves of other European imperialists, German and French first. But they will come to term with that.
UK Imperialism, after a moment of disappointment, now openly rides the result of the referendum, responding positively to the fascist, social-chauvinist and racist shoves – in spite of the naive optimism of the useful idiots of the “left” or “far left” also in Italy.
Cameron announced the launch of Western compactness signal to Moscow, advancing to 18 July the parliament vote in London on the renewal of the nuclear deterrent, starting from four Trident submarines, “a move – as the Italian newspaper Repubblica comments – aimed to appease the anxieties and fears of a weakening of the alliance after the Brexit”.
The American analyst Kaplan, expert about Europe, confirming that US come to terms with the Brexit, on La Stampa wrote that “since the beginning of the Cold War, NATO and Europe have never had such a need of the US leadership. The Brexit is a challenge for this President and for the next one”. That is, the Brexit is the proof that the Europeans do not know how to look after themselves and, if left alone, they could disintegrate with advantage of Russia, and then American leadership is now more necessary than ever and that if Eastern Europe are moving towards a return to the “geopolitical chaos”, it is necessary that US fill this “emerging vacuum of power, with no over-exposition, but through a careful combination of diplomacy and reflected military power.”
Thus, the UK now has the opportunity to strengthen the alliance with the US: “together, the two nations can still protect continental Europe up to the gates of Russia.”
While this is always positive, according to the analyst, he does not disregard the fears that, as a result of the British detachment, a single guide can move forward on the continent: "Today Germany is encouraged to do exactly that." And, if that happens, "looking beyond the era of Angela Merkel, the German could get tired ... could negotiate a separate agreement with Russia or fall back on populist nationalism, as has happened in other European countries."
So, Kaplan suggests that it is not enough to have recovered to UK but US should seek to maintain close ties with Berlin: "to lead Europe means to lead the two countries."
Kaplan helps to better understand the decisions of the NATO Summit in Warsaw, illustrating the role played on behalf of US imperialism by Poland and Romania: "In May, the US has deployed a ground missile defense in Romania and at the same time laid the foundation for a similar system in Poland. Although operated by NATO, they are essentially US initiatives. As well as the two US F22 fighters sent to the Black Sea coast. In addition, the Romanian coast offers to the US the best base to have its naval force in the Black Sea. The Polish location allows the same type of action for the Baltic States as well where numerous incursions of the aircraft took place.
You can well understand, therefore, also in the light of this “information”, the character of decisions that are an objective gradual relocation of an aggressive force at the Russian borders, ready to turn every incident into a general explosion.
