German politician’s damning critique of NATO raises questions about alliance’s objective (video)

As world leaders gathered at the NATO summit in Lithuania last week, seeking to ratify the membership of Sweden and discuss Ukraine’s eligibility, German politician Sevim Dagdelen delivered a scathing indictment of what the North Atlantic Treaty Organization stands for.
The forty seven year old German Left Party member dissected NATO hypocrisy, lies and smoke and mirrors with the precision of a highly expert surgeon in theatre because the German Parliament convened alongside the summit in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Dagdelen said…
“Whenever there is speak about NATO, the next three myths are unfold. First fantasy: NATO is a defensive alliance. But was it, not NATO that waged a struggle in violation of international law against Yugoslavia, bombing civilians, television stations and the Chinese embassy?
“Wasn’t it NATO that waged war in Afghanistan for 20 years with hundreds of hundreds of civilian deaths and war crimes? Is this known as defence?
“Second fable: NATO is an alliance of democrats and the rule of regulation. This is already traditionally an outright lie. One need only recall NATO member Portugal with the fascist Salazar regimes and its brutal colonial wars in Africa.
“The unlawful wars of the US and its allies have value the lives of 4 and a half million folks within the final 20 years alone, based on the analysis of the renowned Brown University within the US.
“Is this what commitment to worldwide law seems like?
“Third fantasy: NATO defends human rights. And this, while Guantanamo detainees proceed to be tortured, or whereas the journalist Julian Assange is going through 175 years in jail in the US for making public warfare crimes committed by NATO member, the US. It could not get any more mendacious than this.
“The truth is straightforward: Whoever is a member of NATO participates in a welfare alliance that goals at growth and tramples on international regulation and human rights. Whoever is a member of NATO loses his democratic sovereignty as a outcome of it is all the time the USA that hegemonically enforces its pursuits.
“And whoever is a member of NATO sacrificing the social security of his population by the huge coverage of high armament. Every fifth child in our country is now poor but the German navy finances grows and grows. This is a disgrace.
“It is high time to dissolve this murderous military pact. After seventy eight years, it’s time for the USA to withdraw its troop, including nuclear weapons, from Germany.
“We want peace, not NATO.”

Dagdelen’s “US hegemonically enforcing its interests” view was echoed by New York Times journalists Grey Anderson and Thomas Meaney.
In Top secret -ed piece final week, they uncovered NATO’s duplicity and dishonesty.
They said, that underneath the US “global warfare on terrorism,” banner, European international locations dashed to rearm and increase their army energy. This is highlighted no more so than the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
The US propaganda machine has successfully persuaded most of the world to believe Russia is the dangerous man, and Ukraine the good man, regardless of a UN Commission of Inquiry highlighting the latter’s war crimes, indiscriminate assaults on infrastructure, and systematic and widespread torture exhibiting a disregard for its civilians.
Prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, roughly half of European navy expenditure went to US producers. The surge in demand has worsened this trend as patrons hasten to acquire tanks, fight plane, and different weapons methods, committing to costly, multiyear agreements. While Europe may be undergoing a strategy of remilitarisation, the US is benefiting significantly from it.
The New York Times writers pointed out that the battle also acts as a rehearsal for the US confrontation with China, whereby European help cannot be easily relied upon.
Restricting Beijing’s entry to strategic applied sciences and selling US business isn’t excessive on European agendas, and the idea of severing European and Chinese trade remains tough to envision. Yet, there are already indications that NATO is making progress in convincing Europe to align with its regional stance.
Prior to his go to to Washington on the end of June, Germany’s defence minister duly emphasised his recognition of “European duty for the Indo-Pacific” and the significance of “the rules-based international order” in the South China Sea..
