NATO: An Entity Set on Disaster

Edition 2: Expanded and Reworked

Ever since its creation in 1949, when the United States was already a significant nuclear power, the organization has constantly worked to create conflicts that have been able to enrich its own arms industry. As Johan Galtung put it: “The conflict could have been resolved with a little patience and creativity, but NATO does not want solutions. It uses conflict, as raw material it can process into interventions to tell the world that it is the strongest in military terms.

The period after 1992 is therefore cluttered with 251 examples of military interventions in various states, from NATO as a whole or from individual member states, with democracy as a pretext. This according to the USA’s Congressional Research Service, March 2022. But NATO has never tried to resolve any conflicts; peaceful solutions do not bring any profits to a military power.

The latest example of this is the war in Ukraine. From the beginning, there was no conflict between Russia and Ukraine. It must be created by the U.S. with the help of the EU. It was created by these powers, politicized and militarized by various NATO states and now, we are seeing the results.

It is important, not least for school youth, students that they get a different version than the mainstream gives of what is happening geopolitically. A version that is not agenda-based but where the ambition is an accurate description of a conflict-filled world. NATO – an Entity set on Disaster contributes strongly to providing a fact-based, comprehensive and sustainable picture of what is happening.
