Rasmussen: ‘No role for NATO in Mali’

Posted by seumasach on January 22, 2013

There’s something rotten in the state of Denmark- but things are looking up! How anomalous and un-NATO- like for them not to plunge into a new bombing campaign.

NATO can’t be the world’s policeman, travelling from country to country, solving all the problems.

Wonderful news!

UK censures US naval shift to Asia

Posted by seumasach on June 6, 2012

Having marginalised ourselves in Europe we are now in a difficult position as the USA engages with China. Britain’s only realistic course is a constructive engagement with Europe but we prefer to dream the Atlanticist dream to the last.

PressTV

6th June, 2012

British Armed Forces Minister Nick Harvey has launched a veiled criticism of the US for shifting naval capacity to Asia saying the move undermines the Atlantic security.

Petition: Remove US nukes from Europe

Posted by seumasach on May 19, 2012

On May 20th, world leaders will meet at the NATO Summit in Chicago, where the future of hundreds of US nuclear weapons deployed in Europe is on the agenda. Let’s tell them it’s time to get these weapons out of Europe, sign the petition below!

To the leaders of NATO countries,

The Cold War has been over for more than 20 years. Keeping US nuclear weapons in Germany, Turkey, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy makes no sense. These weapons are relics of a bygone age: they are dangerous, useless and expensive and do not address today’s actual security threats. We urge you to remove these weapons from Europe. You have a historic opportunity to take the next critical step toward a world without nuclear weapons.

It’s time to invite Russia to join NATO

Posted by seumasach on March 19, 2010

Of course, the reason Russia isn’t part of NATO is that NATO is directed , primarily, against Russia. Still, calling for Russian membership is a good way of neutralising NATO and such a call coming from senior German defence figures is enormously significant.

The Battle for Europe

Posted by seumasach on March 10, 2010

Cailean Bochanan
10th March, 2010
One of the key arguments against the Eurozone of its detractors is that it has at its heart a flaw, namely, that it lacks the political unity necessary to make a single currency possible. Now that the sensational news of a European Monetary Fund has broken the cry goes up of “economic governance”. This is rich coming from those who want “economic governance” for the whole world and illustrates the fact that no matter what Europe does it can’t win. Or can it?

Mistral et Lafayette pour les Russes, Sukhoi et Mikoyan pour les Français

Posted by seumasach on February 14, 2010

Bookofezekiel3’s Blog

C’est bien cette échange d’équipement avec les Russes. Les Français devront acheter des Su-35 et des Mig-35, et laisser les Russes acheter des Mistral et des La Fayette.

La France et les autres pays d’Europe devront être autant ami avec les Russes qu’avec les Americain. C’est le temps de finalement sortir des ombres de l’empire, on ne veut pas devenir le Vichy des Americains, comme Tony Blair en Bretagne, ou le Mexique.

Brown goes into battle with billions for defence

Posted by seumasach on February 2, 2010

Bankrupt or not, Britain seems intent on reaffirming itself as a military-imperial power whatever the cost. We continue to fail to see that the game is up for the cause of full spectrum dominance and that the London-Washington-Tel Aviv axis is doomed to defeat. We need now , as a matter of urgency, a movement for imperial retreat and the dismantling of the MIC. Britain needs to reduce its military to that of an average nation and seek to rebuild friendly relations with the rest of the world especially our creditors. Only in this way can we find the funds and continued capital inflows to finance a programme of national civil reconstruction which can prevent us becoming a failed state.

Gordon Brown will put two new aircraft carriers at the heart of his vision for the military this week as he commits Labour to billions of pounds of extra defence spending.

Redress

8th October, 2009

Christopher King analyses the current state of relations between Europe and the United States. He argues that the US military presence in Europe, and the transformation of NATO into an American tool, is tantamount to military occupation and is an obstacle to the development of pan-European and European-Russian relations.

There is a widespread supposition that Obama, being black and a member of an oppressed race, will imbue US foreign policy with a higher morality than the world experienced from Bush and Clinton. This is a delusion.
