The imperial periphery , sensing imperial retrenchment, is trying to force a strengthened NATO commitment. This would also be why the Polish government launched a police raid against a NATO intelligence centre. In effect, they are saying : turn us into a forward NATO base against Russia or we’ll turn our back on NATO. But Poland is playing a very weak hand : the New Cold War is running out of steam and who is Poland to breathe new life into it? Furthermore, Britain is no longer the influencial force it pretends to be.

The real Masters of the Universe in the U.S. are no weathermen, but arguably they’re starting to feel which way the wind is blowing.
History may signal it all started with this week’s trip to Sochi, led by their paperboy, Secretary of State John Kerry, who met with Foreign Minister Lavrov and then with President Putin.

The website of Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs acknowledges that NATO has played a “central role” in the country’s security and insists that Turkey, which became a member in 1952, “attaches utmost importance” to it. Yet Turkey’s commitment to the alliance has never seemed more ambivalent than it does now.

All the nonsense and bravado that comes out of today’s NATO summit will not be able to conceal the essential irrelevance of this organization, an irrelevance confirmed by it’s inability to come to the aid of a militantly anti-Russian regime in Ukraine, installed by NATO itself, its very own baby if you like. For what purpose does NATO have if it is not the roll-back of Russia and the fact that Ukraine is not a NATO member is a mere technicality, world dominance was never going to be achieved by playing by the rules. The Kiev regime is NATO creation in its own image: NATO old-timers must have warmed to images of distressed pensioners, crying children and corpses in the street resulting from Ukrainian bombardment of Ukrainian citizens. Their thoughts would have gone back to past exploits: to destroyed bridges and trains in Serbia, to bombed weddings in Afghanistan and, more recently, to providing murderous air cover for murderous jihadis in Libya. Oh, the glory of it all! Yet those days are gone, never to return: the will simply isn’ there. I hope this is Obama’s irony: if so, it says it all:
“It [NATO] is unbreakable, it is unwavering, it is eternal. And Estonia will never stand alone,”

This week’s NATO summit in Wales has been billed as themost important meeting in the organization’s history, “a strategic inflection point,” an occasion for its rebirth,rediscovery, reinvention as a tougher, mightier alliance. The impetus for this new beginning is the worsening situation in Ukraine, which awoke the organization from its slumber by alerting it to the fact that its member states in Eastern Europe are vulnerable to an assault from Russia. Ukraine will be one of the main items on the agenda. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will be on the scene at the Welsh golf resort to plead for help, badly needed after his squabble with Russia on Wednesday, which resulted in yet another failed attempt at a ceasefire. Poroshenko will try to convince European leaders that Russia is not just at war with Ukraine, it’s at war with all of Europe.

Edward Bernays once famously promoted the “conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses” through the use of propaganda, which he considered an “important element in democratic society”. Today’s so-called “liberal democracies” are testament to Bernays’ assertion. The “father of public relations” demonstrated early on that propaganda can be used for many different purposes, from selling cars to selling wars. Especially the latter has become the primary task of media in the United States and other NATO countries in recent years. With Iraq still burning, Western media played a decisive role in turning Libya and Syria into failed states as well. The propaganda was never particularly sophisticated. After “Saddam has weapons of mass destruction” came “Gaddafi is killing his own people” and eventually “Assad is like Hitler”. But mainstream media reporting got even worse during the Ukraine crisis and this could have unforeseen consequences for those in power.
