'To mark the significance of NATO’s 70th anniversary perhaps it would be enough to look at the 18-year war that devastates Afghanistan, or the chaos in which Libya remains plunged, or the violations of international law sponsored by the organization in the Balkans, notably the terrifying dismemberment of Yugoslavia.
Maybe that would be enough … But we would be far from doing justice to the breadth and longevity of an increasingly global and essentially gangster behavior such as that which characterizes the alliance. The flood of epic considerations around the myths that support it is so threatening nowadays that no opportunities will be never be enough to plumb the contradiction. It is not surprising that NATO is what it is.
What may cause some perplexity, especially between those who are a little more familiar with the international reality and those who go beyond mainstream information, is the disdain with which highly-positioned leaders in nations and in the world try to interconnect their beautiful speeches about the alliance with its bloody practices. Either they believe in their own lies or they rely too much on the propaganda and the consequent alienation of ordinary citizens.
NATO was born in the midst of lies and propagandist myths as prevalent today as they were 70 years ago, although they were easily dismantled.
But the organization’s servants have faith in the effect of repetition and the reverential media universe. NATO was not born to respond to any contrary action, since the Treaty of Warsaw was only founded four years later. Nor did it come to defend democracy, because it insisted on integrating a fascist dictatorship – the Portuguese one – at its birth, adopting others over time, as was the case with the Greek and the Turkish ones.'
