Who Threatens Whom?

The recent NATO Summit held in Madrid, Spain revised the NATO strategic concept which was adopted in 2010.

In the revised strategic concept, NATO has downgraded Russia from “strategic partner” to “principal enemy”. It also stipulated the future action plan to cope with the “most significant and direct threats” from Russia.

At a glance, it looks like this is an emergency measure to counter the “serious threats” posed by Russia.

But it a well-recognized fact that NATO, which took “threat” from the former Soviet Union as justification for its existence during the Cold War, has maintained its strong presence even after the breakup of former Soviet Union. It made an open invasion of other countries under the pretext of safeguarding peace. Not content with this, it does not hesitate to even commit terrorist acts against the state leadership.

Advocating the protection of peace and security in Europe, it made a promise to Russia that it would not advance eastwards even an inch. However, it broke its promise and moved closer to the Russian border through gradual expansion towards Russia five times. Since 2008, it has seriously threatened the security of Russia, openly inducing Ukraine to join NATO in a bid to turn this country into a bridgehead for containing Russia.

Such being the case, NATO’s branding of Russia as “principal enemy” is like turning black into white and the guilty party filing the suit first.

Moreover, at the recent NATO Summit, the U.S. and the West decided to continue their military aids to Ukraine “as long as necessary”, obstinately stoking an atmosphere of confrontation with Russia. Moreover, they conspired to bring Finland and Sweden into NATO, which have remained as the neutral states for decades and hundreds of years.

It is too natural that Russia is clarifying its tough stand to firmly defend national security, condemning NATO, a legacy of the Cold War, for seeking an all-out confrontation with Russia in quest of its wild dream of hegemonic position, being obsessed with an imperialist ambition.

Many countries are now expressing understanding and empathy with Russia in its stand to defend its strategic security. On the other hand, they are turning their back to the U.S. and the West which are coercing them into sanctions against Russia, being disillusioned at NATO’s ill-willed behavior of seeking its sinister purpose behind the scenes of the Ukrainian crisis.

The reality clearly verifies that the present world is no longer the one of the past when the highhandedness and arbitrariness of the U.S. and the West worked. It also proves that as the aspiration of the international society for the independence, peace and justice is growing stronger, so is the voice opposing the existence of NATO itself, an aggressive military organization and the mastermind of all threats and injustice.
