NATO Secretary General press conference – NATO Summit in Warsaw, 08 JUL 2016

Washington dominates NATO policy, other members and partners pressured to go along with policies harming their own interests.

Meeting in Warsaw, Poland on July 8 and 9, 28 NATO countries, 26 partners, the UN and World Bank intend focusing on pre-agreed anti-Russian policies – US-appointed Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg highlighting the alliance’s “biggest reinforcement since the Cold War.”

“We will deploy four robust, multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland,” he said. “I welcome Canada’s recent announcement that it will lead one of these four battalions.”

“We will also agree to develop a tailored presence in the southeast, based on a multinational brigade in Romania.”

US/NATO’s support for ISIS and other terrorist groups, aiding their spread, is the only significant world threat. Yet NATO members will increase military spending – at a time it should be greatly reduced, social justice and economic stimulus stressed, addressing long neglected popular needs.

Russia’s Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu warned about NATO “more than doubl(ing)” its provocative actions near Russia’s border – “deploy(ing) about 1,200 pieces of military equipment, including 30 combat jets, as well as more than 1,000 soldiers on the territories of the Eastern European countries on a rotational basis.”

“US navy ships as well as military vessels of other NATO members regularly enter the Baltic and Black Seas,” threatening Russian security.

America’s so-called missile defense is solely for offense, targeting Russia’s heartland, potentially with nuclear weapons.

Thousands more US-led NATO combat troops intended for Eastern Europe force Russia to take counter-measures.

Putin stressed a national commitment to “be ready to respond quickly and adequately to any potential threats…provocation(s) (or) aggressive actions.”

US-dominated NATO threatens world peace and stability. As long as the alliance exists and expands, imperial wars will continue, the threat of nuclear annihilation real.

        Maybe they are counting on our defense systems to take out the retaliatory strike in the upper atmospheres to only become EMP and not fallout . Who knows ? None of what comes out of NATO or US surprises me any more . It seems evil has reared it’s ugly head once again .
