‘interesting to say the least’

‘interesting to say the least’

The book that some people are already calling nebulous because they doubt its veracity and validity is called “The Nebula”.  Its three-page foreword is written by Wayne Madsen. The author is a former Belgian NATO AWACS command post officer and NATO Air Defense Officer. The book is published by Trine-Day.

The back cover says that the book provides “deep insights into the unseen but real forces” and “exposes a cabal which controls most of the money transfers worldwide as well as the highest political authorities.”

Donald Trump is featured in the last of four parts, particularly in chapter 19. There is an index and 22 appendices totalling fifty pages. There is a 3.5-page list of acronyms and abbreviations, a 3.5-page introduction, and a bibliography that lists 85 sources.

On page 201, in the epilogue, Walter Baeyens says “In these days of unbridled egocentric materialism, , power and money have become the only means and measure of all thingd. How they are acquired does not matter.”  In the pages preceding, he gives you a better sense of how they are acquired.

The kingpin of the Nebula was identified in the ATLAS Report, which can be found in both French and English in the appendix, as well as at https://isgp-studies.com/belgium-la-nebuleuse-atlas-dossier-and-dutroux-x-files, whose author is the first reviewer at Amazon and who appears to have his underwear in a knot because his work is neither credited nor makes an appearance in Baeyens’ book, The ATLAS Report can also be found  here:  https://zionistreport.com/2016/07/commentary-classified-belgian-police-report-nebula-receives-another-look/.
The ATLAS report was triggered by serial murders, enough of them that one needs a guide and additional references to get clear on their history. One involved Andre Cools, and then there were the Brabant murders, and a range of Gladio events, and they stretched all the way back to the murder of Julien Lahaut in 1950 whose sponsor (to use Drago’s template) Baeyens alleges (page 2) also attempted to derail investigations in the late 80’s into the the Brabant kills and the child abuse cases labeled “Dossier X”.  If this is beginning to sound familiar, read the book.
The kingpin, we are told on page 10, is a Grandmaster of the Jewish Lodge B’Nai B’rith, putting to rest one of the main points by the first Amazon reviewer who claims Baeyens went on an anti-Semitic binge “two-thirds” into the book.  But the Israeli maffiya are mentioned on the very first page (and after you finish reading this book you can join the global discussion about the criminalization of free speech).

Weapons, money and corruption are identified early and often.  There is no centering exclusively on Jewish or Israeli components of the global criminal cabal; the Vatican, Wall Street, banking, the Rothschilds, the the Russian-Jewish maffiya, the old Italian mafia, crime families, the OTO, the Federal Reserve, water and power utilities and corporations, big corporations, numerous governmental intelligence agencies, the Trilaterals, the Bilderbergers and the European Round Table all get their moments in the spotlight.
French historian Annie Lacroix-Riz and her book The Choice of Defeat make their first appearance on page 38 to point out how the German conquest of Northern France at the beginning of World War Two became “a walk in the park”.  Wikipedia of course has an entry on her; many others exist on the internet but tend naturally to be in her French language.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Lacroix-Riz She is accused of being a communist sympathizer, but I guess we all have to call one another something, no?  In the world of Hegelian dialectic, in the end we’re either fascist or communist or dead or some combination thereof, Christianity and all major religions having been relegated to the trash heap of history, thought and choice by the eventual dictatorship that necessarily evolves under either choice. (Everyone is damned to pennilessness or some form of insignificance (if not death itself) if they fail to adhere to the dominant political centrality of the moment.)

(Everyone is damned to pennilessness or some form of insignificance (if not death itself) if they fail to adhere to the dominant political centrality of the moment.)
The history of the French Cagoule is well-documented, says Baeyens on page 39, where he lays out an organizational structure for the Synarchist organization which keeps the thugs and the killers on the fourth level, the technocrats who rationalize their acts on the third level, the very wealthy politically-neutral businessmen who bribe their way into politics (taking turns to infilitrate all parties large and small) on the second level, with the ideologues at the top. He notes that the horrible crimes they commit remain unprosecuted decades after the fact speak to the depth of the cover-up.
On page 43, it is said that the absolute power structure and its particular instruments can order assassinations, start wars and terrors campaigns, and impose complete silence.
The Synarchist “conspiracy theory” comes in immediately, as does a wide range of Freemasonry lodges starting with P2. Freemasonry comes into focus on pages 45-54. ( Did you know that Lyman Lemnitzer was a 32nd degree Mason of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite?)
Adam Weishaupt and his “papers” get a moment with his mantra “the ends justify the means”, and the means include usury, blackmail, the subjugation of the press, the destruction of relgiion (especially Christianity), corruption, sedition, terror, violence and perversion (including pedophilia, child sacrifice et alia which, in this book, are only peripherally mentioned as a primary tool of blackmail and an element in the over-arching occultism that preaches that men, being divine, do not need their immoral acts forgiven.
Chapter Five (entitled Nazism to Gladio) discusses the roles of John J. McCloy, the Bank of International Settlements, the Grey Wolves, and socialism, which brings us back to Andre Cools. The cabal does not care about religion, politics or nationalism, but only about itself. Chapter Six is about Iran-Contra, Gerald Bull, Marc Rich, and 9/11. Chapter Eight details the role of B’nai B’rith, the Bolsheviks, Trotskyism, communism, the Federal Reserve, alcohol and prohibition. Harry Hopkins, the birth of Israel, Iran-Contra, the Harriman family, Maurice Tempelsman and, again and again, the famous Felix Przedborski.
Chapter Ten talks about waste criminality, Chapter Eleven tells the amazing story of Major Jordan’s diary, and Chapter Thirteen discusses what happened to the Belgian royals during World War Two. Chapter 14 is about the Nazi underground (treated in much greater detail in other sources) but which mentions that Skorzeny was contracted by Mossad for the killing of a German scientist in 1962, and goes on to mention the influence of the Nazi underground on the history and future of North Africa and the Middle East. This “Geozentrale” is treated in more detail in Chapter 15. We’re talking about the maintenance of the tools and the global export of Nazi modes of terror.
Latin America and Carlos Lehder come into focus in Chapter 16, along with Gehlen, Barbie, and the Belgian drugs-for-arms trade through Antwerp and, soon enough, Maurice “Hank” Greenberg, AIG, Goldman Sachs and the Clintons. Part of the strategy of the Nazi movement in diaspora was the creation of the EU and its binding to the UK.  The Nazi infilitration of the Stasi and the KGB are mentioned, as well as trafficking in gold, artwrok, antiques, cars, drugs, AK-47s and “visas”.  Points of contact were created through the world including Indonesia, China, Saudi Arabia and Africa, all with links back to Belgium. Eventually Costa Rica becomes a centerpeice in the network.
Chapter 18 brings the reader through the world of Nazism, Zionism, NATO, terrorism, homosexual practices, pedophilia, Yale, Skull and Bones. mind control, merceneries, mobs, and the rituals of the special operations military community. Kay Griggs is the tour guide.
Chapter 19 introduces The Donald and the threat of the Jewish-Marxist alliance as it teamed up with Freemasonry and Protestantism in their common goal of the abolition of Christianity. Roy Cohn’s role is detailed. The Order of Malta is mentioned, as well as many of its Knights (Gehlen, the Dulles brothers, Bill Casey, William Colby, Clay Shaw, and thrre members of the Bush family). Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola makes a guest appearance on page 173, bringing into focus the theme of an order based on violence, hierarchy, caste, race, myth, religion and ritual.
Chapter Twenty notes Lenin and his book Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism, brought into focus in the late 20th century with the reality that “the financial industry had definitely become the dominant force of global economic activity. To make a fortune, you no longer needed to start up a production plant. You simply speculated your way to riches…. Political regimes have become mere instruments of the global banking cartel.  Wherever governments failt to hand over the riches of their nation, politicians are replaced by technocrats [who] “straighten out” things in favor of the banks, while the press and the media are seeing to it that the masses remain largely uninformed and constantly entertained.”
Chapter Twenty-One is about the Muslim connection, the role of Turkic studies expert Gerhard von Mende, as well as Theodor Oberlander (aptly named.., did he date Frau Lebensraum?), who “saw great opportunities in the use of Muslim extremism for the re-unification of Germany and the re-annexation of former German territories”.  Of 9/11, Baeyens says “the 9/11 pictures, masterpieces of Hollywood propaganda, stunning and hypnotizing, were like a mix of cheap Godzilla movie scenes and a TV ad.  Being constantly bombarded with these terrible visual imprints, the public at large, as expected, soon acknowledged two basic facts. First, this was an act of war against America. Second, that Muslim extremists did it….” Further, that the new building, the creation of architect Daniel Libeskind, “could be understood as another Holocaust memorial on US soil, dedicated to the victory of money over truth” and that, post 9/11, the “uncontested state of affairs [of Pax Americana and the US as global enforcer now under attack triggering Article V of the NATO pact] made the acquiescing European nations accomplices of the planned American criminal wars in the Middle East. Finally, Baeyens cites and quotes Max Keiser on the option purchases, ABS, Buzzy Krongard, and Deutsche Bank:

“… the noise which occurred between Baltimore, New York City and Langley was interesting, as you can imagine, to say the least.”

“President Trump’s brief inaugural speech was a declaration of war against the entirety of the American Ruling Establishment. All of it….. The interest groups designated by Trump as The Enemy are well entrenched and accustomed to being in charge. Their powerful networks are still in place. Although there are Republican majorities in the House and Senate, most of those in Congress are answerable to the ruling interest groups that provide their campaign funds and not to the American people or to the President. The military/security complex, offshoring corporations, Wall Street and the banks are not going to roll over for Trump. And neither is the presstitute media, which is owned by the interest groups whose power Trump challenges.

Trump made it clear that he stands for every American, black, brown, and white. Little doubt his declaration of inclusiveness will be ignored by the haters on the left who will continue to call him a racist just as the $50 per hour paid protesters are doing as I write.

Indeed, black leadership, for example, is enculturated into the victimization role from which it would be hard for them to escape. How do you pull together people who all their lives have been taught that whites are racists and that they are the victims of racists?….

So along with the globalists, the CIA, the offshoring corporations, the armaments industries, the NATO establishment in Europe, and foreign politicians accustomed to being well paid for supporting Washington’s interventionist foreign policy, Trump will have arrayed against him the leaders of the victimized peoples, the blacks, the hispanics, the feminists, the illegals, the homosexuals and transgendered. This long list, of course, includes the white liberals as well, as they are convinced that flyover America is the habitat of white racists, misogynists, homophobes, and gun nuts. As far as they are concerned, this 84% of geographical US should be quarantined or interred…..

Consider the forces that Trump has against him:

Black and hispanic leaders need victimization, because it is what elevates them to power and income. They will turn a jaundiced eye toward Trump’s inclusiveness. Inclusiveness is good for blacks and hispanics, but not for their leaders.

The executives and shareholders of global corporations are enriched by the offshored jobs that Trump says he will bring home. If the jobs come home, their profits, performance bonuses, and capital gains will go away. But the economic security of the American population will return.

The military/security complex has a 1,000 billion annual budget dependent on “the Russian threat” that Trump says he is going to replace with normalized relations. Trump’s assassination cannot be ruled out.

Many Europeans owe their prestige, power, and incomes to the NATO that Trump has called into question.

The financial sector’s profits almost entirely flow from putting Americans into debt bondage and from looting their private and public pensions. The financial sector with their agent, the Federal Reserve, can overwhelm Trump with financial crisis. The New York Federal Reserve Bank has a complete trading desk. It can send any market into turmoil. Or support any market, because there is no limit on its ability to create US dollars.

The entire political ediface in the US has insulated itself from the will, desires, and needs of the people. Now Trump says the politicians will be accountable to the people. This, of course, would mean a big drop in their security in office and in their income and wealth.

There are a large number of groups, funded by we-know-not-who. For example, RootsAction has responded today to Trump’s forceful commitment to stand for all of the people against the Ruling Establishment with a request to “ask Congress to direct the House Judiciary Committee to open an impeachment investigation” and to send money for Trump’s impeachment.

Another hate group, human rights first, attacks Trump’s defense of our borders as closing “a refuge of hope for those fleeing persecution.” Think about this for a minute. According to the liberal-progressive-left and the racial interest group organizations, the US is a racist society and President Trump is a racist. Yet, people subject to American racism are fleeing from persecution to America where they will be racially persecuted? It doesn’t make sense. The illegals come here for work. Ask the construction companies. Ask the chicken and animal slaughter houses. Ask the vacation area cleaning services…..”

In 1971, the People Didn’t Just March on Washington — They Shut It Down 

[this same image is the featured image just below the masthead above]

This excerpt from Direct Action by L. A. Kauffman tells the story of the most influential large-scale political action of the ’60s, that actually happened in 1971. It was called the Mayday action, and it provides invaluable lessons for today.

“… I became fascinated with the so-called “first professional revolutionist,” especially the evidence of his indebtedness to the stratagems of the Bavarian Illuminati (directly or otherwise).

In the midst of Lehning’s thorough outline of the central role Buonarroti played in various secret societies during the period, a short passage caught my attention involving a clandestine nexus of French Carbonarists, Joseph Rey’s ‘L’Union,’ and a particularly revolutionary Masonic Lodge of the Grand Orient: the ‘Amis de la Vérité’ [Friends of Truth]:

In 1821 the secret leadership of the anti-Bourbon opposition went over to the “Charbonnerie française”. Bazard, the later Saint-Simonist, formed in 1818 the “Loge des amis de la vérité” with its military “Compagnie franche des écoles”.

Behind the “Loge” stood the secret “Union” of Rey, and it was Victor Cousin (of the “Union”) who, in fact, took the initiative. Involved in the military conspiracy of 19th August 1820, two of its members, Joubert and Dugied, having fled to Italy, brought back from Naples the statutes of the Neopolitan “carbonari”. They form 1st May 1821 the first “Haute Vente” of the “Charbonnerie française” of which soon the leading personalities of the parliamentarian opposition such as Lafayette, De Corcelle, Koechlin, Manuel – all deputies – and also Cabet and De Schonen, became members (127).

Illuminated Politics

The name of the lodge was no doubt chosen as an homage to the paramasonic revolutionary club ‘Cercle Social,’ or ‘Confédération Universelle Des Amis de la Vérité’ [Universal Confederation of the Friends of Truth]. Co-founded by masons Nicolas de Bonneville (1760-1828) and Claude Fauchet (1744-1793) in Paris, 1790, this “société fraternelle” had its own printing house that published a short-lived yet influential journal called La Bouche de Fer [The Mouth of Iron], where the tradition of revolutionary-as-journalist-agitator originated. James H. Billington characterized the Cercle Social as “nothing less than the prototype of a modern revolutionary movement” (44); while Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, in 1844, had opined that “the revolutionary movement… began in 1789 in the Cercle Social [itself].”

The mystic-occult current during the French Revolution, the pervasiveness of mesmerism in particular, has been carefully documented by Robert Darnton. The Cercle Social, Darnton writes, was “an association of mystic revolutionaries who hoped to establish a Universal Confederation of Friends of the Truth with a masonic organization. The ideology of the Cercle Social derived from a strain of occultism expressed most fully by Restif de la Bretonne” (132), dubbed the “Rousseau of the gutter.”

Restif’s “baroque imagination,” elaborates Darnton:

produced a cosmology made up of animal planets that produced life by copulation; Pythagorean sprits that evolved with each incarnation through a hierarchy of stones, plants, animals, and creatures inhabiting countless worlds of countless solar systems; and a pantheistic god who endlessly created universes by a process of crystallization and then destroyed them by absorption in the sun, the brain of the universal “Great Animal.” Restif lubricated this animalistic, sexual cosmos with “intellectual fluid” that, like Mesmer’s fluid, acted as the intermediary between God and man’s internal sense. “God is the material and intellectual brain of the single great animal, of the All, whose intelligence is an actual fluid, like light, but much less dense, as it does not touch any of our external senses and acts only upon the inner sense” (ibid).

Wild stuff, for sure — typical of the illuminist strain of thought (Dom Pernety, Saint-Martin, Mesmer, Cagliostro, Lavater, Swedenborg et al.) during the Enlightenment. Restif was also the first to use the word communist in print in 1785 (Billington 79; Grandjonc 146), submitted an appeal for agrarian communalism to the Estates-General in 1789, and by 1793 “used the term communism as his own for the first time” (Billington 82). Hence, the origins of the modern conceptions of socialism and communism stem from a particular “irrational” undercurrent during the so-called “Age of Reason.”

In the introduction to the invaluable Dictionary of Gnosis & Western Esotericism, Wouter Hanegraaff observed that during the Enlightenment “the boundaries between reason and its ‘other’ were in fact blurred and shifting, with many important figures finding themselves with one foot in each camp” (x). Bonneville and his Cercle Social was the embodiment of this ostensible contradiction. They preached “communism … [and] demanded the redistribution of property” while at the same time promulgating the virtues of “communication with spirits, fraternal organizations, and grand oratory” (Darnton 134-5). Marx and his materialist acolytes acknowledged the Cercle Social as revolutionary progenitors but had obviously overlooked the fact that La Bouche de Fer subscribers “read about the animal planets, the transmigration of souls, the primitive religion and language, and, also, universal harmony” (133)…..“

NATO membership expansionism

September 5-7, 2014 — NATO: How big will it get?

http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/articles/20140904_1

A re-post without change of a Wayne Madsen report

 

President Obama and 27 other NATO heads of state are meeting in a highly-secured Celtic Manor in Newport, Wales amid calls for NATO to expand further toward Russia’s borders. Fast-track NATO membership for Ukraine and Georgia, both of which began negotiations on NATO membership after George Soros- and CIA-funded street demonstrations resulted in democratically-elected pro-Russian governments being overthrown, is back on the table.

As NATO expands eastward in order to surround Russia on the east, south, and potentially, the west, Article 10 of the NATO Charter becomes a major problem for the Cold War-era military alliance. Article 10 stipulates that NATO membership is only open to “European States.”

Article 10 states: “The Parties [NATO Treaty signatories] may, by unanimous agreement, invite any other European State in a position to further the principles of this Treaty and to contribute to the security of the North Atlantic area to accede to this treaty. Any State so invited may become a Party to the Treaty by depositing its instrument of accession with the Government of the United States of America.”

As NATO expands to lands that as much a part of the Middle East and the western Asian steppes as they are part of Europe, Article 10 becomes a major issue. Furthermore, no serious geographer or cartographer would ever associate Kiev, Tbilisi, or Sofia with the “North Atlantic.”

However, Article 10 has not prevented a number of right-wing think tanks and neoconservative policy “boiler shops” in Washington from calling for NATO to ignore Article 10 and expand NATO far beyond the North Atlantic and Europe.

http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/custom/NATOwales1.JPG

 

 

NATO Summit in Wales [above] bears an uncanny resemblance to the war room in the Cold War black comedy “Dr. Strangelove” [below].

The mindsets of the NATO expansion advocates to the zany war promoters of the movie are the same. 

 

http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/custom/NATOWales2.jpg

One of the first moves by Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, who overthrew the democratically-elected President Eduard Shevardnadze in the Soros-initiated and CIA-funded Rose Revolution of 2003, was to sign up for NATO’s Membership Action Plan (MAP). Saakashvili also staged a dubious non-binding referendum in 2008 that resulted in 77 percent in support of Georgian NATO membership. However, Georgia claims ownership of two self-declared independent republics — Abkhazia and South Ossetia — that were welded into the former Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic by Joseph Stalin against the wishes of their people. Fearful of NATO’s resurgence and wary of a new attempt by NATO to absorb Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia have announced the creation of a “Unified Defense Space” to counter Georgia’s and NATO’s ambitions.

Similarly, after President Viktor Yushchenko prevented the elected president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanuokjovych from being sworn in as president after the Soros operation and CIA managed to turn out protesters in Kiev’s “Orange Revolution” in 2004, one of Yushchenko’s first actions as president was to sign Ukraine up for NATO’s “Intensified Dialogue” program, which was NATO-speak for fast tracked membership. In 2010, after Yanukovych’s election (some would argue, “re-election” since he was prevented from taking office in 2004) as president after the failed Yushchenko presidency, Soros, the Obama administration neocons, and the CIA planned for another undemocratic seizure of power. After Yanukovych was ousted in the “Euromaidan” revolution earlier this year, the new government of World Bank technocrats and neo-fascists called for fast track membership for Ukraine in NATO. And NATO leaders, meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Wales, appears ready to place Ukraine on a fast track to full membership. U.S. and other NATO troops are to arrive in Lvov in late September to train with Ukrainian military personnel.

Poroshenko, who, on one hand, expressed his desire for a negotiated deal with Russia and the ethnic Russians of eastern Ukraine, was running around the NATO summit soliciting support for NATO membership for Ukraine.

The Kiev regime is plowing ahead for NATO membership even though a 2009 poll revealed that 57 percent of Ukrainians opposed NATO membership for their country. In Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine, which has declared independence from Kiev, a poll showed 74 percent opposed to NATO membership.

Taking advantage of the new Cold War that NATO, itself, initiated with the Western-led coup in Kiev, NATO planners are working with neocon and right-wing political leaders in neutral Sweden and Finland to fast-track those nations into NATO. Finland is a particular prize for NATO because of its 833-mile long border with Russia. Some Finnish rightists also yearn for the return of eastern Karelia, which was former Finnish territory ceded to the former Soviet Union after the Finno-Soviet Winter War. Recent polls show 50 percent of Swedes opposed to NATO membership. Although Finland and NATO signed a Memorandum of Understanding in April 2014 that many believe permit NATO pre-positioning of military equipment near the Russian border, polls show 52 percent of Finns being opposed to NATO membership. Former Finnish Presidents Tarja Halonen and Mauno Koivisto have warned that Finnish membership in NATO would irrevocably harm the nation’s relations with Russia.

President Obama said in Estonia that NATO is an alliance of democracies. Some of these “democracies” apparently want to rush their nations into NATO even when majorities of their people are opposed to such action.

NATO is itching to absorb as members nations that have border irredentism issues with Russia. These include Ukraine, with Crimea now a republic of the Russian Federation; Georgia, with Abkhazia and South Ossetia major issues; and Moldova, where the primarily ethnic Russian Transnistrian Republic had declared independence from Moldova.

Although Moldova’s constitution prohibits the country from joining any military alliance, that inconvenient fact has not deterred Moldovan Defense Minister Vitalie Marinuţa from calling for Moldova to join NATO. Marinuţa, who came to power with a government sponsored by Soros provocateurs, is a former employee of the U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Florida, where he was a “strategy and policy planner.”

Moldova’s sudden interest in NATO membership has resulted in Transnistrian and Russian leaders calling for the self-proclaimed republic to be absorbed into the Russian Federation in the same manner that Crimea was united with Russia.

Another country on NATO’s list for prospective members is Bosnia-Herzegovina, a tripartite federation consisting of Bosniak Muslim, Croatian, and Serbian republics. Bosnian Defense Minister Selmo Cikotić is a leading cheerleader for fast-track NATO membership for Bosnia-Herzegovina. Cikotić is a former Bosnian military attaché in Washington and attended the U.S. Army’s Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas before being expelled following accusations that his troops committed war crimes in the Bosnian town of Bugojno. In 2007, Cikotić and Serbian Defense Minister Dragan Šutanovac traveled to a NATO Council summit in Brussels to petition for their countries to become NATO members. Šutanovac is a graduate of the George Marshall Center for Security Studies in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, which is Pentagon funded. Although some Serbs want NATO membership, both the Srpska Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia remember with bitter memories the sustained NATO bombing campaigns against both countries that resulted in large numbers of civilian deaths.

The artificial nation of Kosovo, a NATO and European Union invention, also wants NATO membership. It hosts Camp Bondsteel, a military base used by the United States and NATO. Kosovo’s chief NATO membership promoter is Enver Hoxhaj, a former official of World University Service-Austria, a “Christian” NGO with strong Soros links. Also on track for NATO membership are Montenegro and Macedonia. However, polls show 42 percent of Montenegrins opposed to NATO membership.

NATO’s renewed march east is a far cry from the agreement made between the George H W Bush administration and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev that in exchange for Moscow’s agreement on German reunification, NATO would not inch any further east. That agreement was scrapped by Bill Clinton’s Prague-born Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who eagerly welcomed her native Czech Republic, as well as Poland and Hungary as NATO members in 1997. Albright’s promises that NATO would not further expand toward Russia and never include any former Soviet republics were shown to be hollow after Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania joined NATO in 2004 after membership negotiations began under Albright’s tutelage in 2000. Bulgaria, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Romania also joined NATO in 2004. Croatia and Albania followed in 2009.

NATO has also been trying to wean Ireland away from its traditional neutrality. Many observers believe that NATO has a secret agreement with Ireland to use Shannon Airport as a cargo and personnel transit hub. NATO’s gambit has been to use the terrorist feat to lure Ireland into NATO, the reasoning being that Ireland would be safer from terrorism inside NATO than as an outsider. It is the same argument that has been used by the “No” campaign in the United Kingdom to keep Ireland’s Celtic brethren in Scotland from voting “Yes” for independence in the upcoming referendum. An Irish Defense Policy Green Paper released by Ireland’s Israelophile Defense Minister Alan Shatter, released earlier this year, calls for Ireland to pursue NATO membership.

The European Union has been accused of using combined EU and NATO membership for Ireland and another neutral nation, Austria, as a prerequisite for remaining a member in good standing of the EU. In May of this year, Austria inched closer to NATO membership when it became the first non-NATO country to join NATO’s Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence in Estonia.

Some NATO officials have also expressed an interest in folding Azerbaijan and Armenia under the NATO umbrella. A confidential NATO paper recently leaked to Der Spiegel calls for enhanced “interoperability” of the military forces of Armenia and Azerbaijan, as well as Moldova, with NATO, and proposes “smart defense” operations between the three nations and NATO.

It is when NATO starts to eye members outside of Europe that Article 10 becomes a major issue. A recent cooperation agreement between NATO and Colombia was seen by some as a first step toward NATO membership for the Latin American nation. Some neocon think tanks have called for NATO membership for Mexico. Further neocon proposals have called for NATO to become a global military alliance and offer full membership to Israel, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Brazil, India, Singapore, and South Africa. There have even been calls for NATO to take in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Morocco, and Jordan as members.

It is clear who the NATO expansionists see as the enemies of a larger NATO: Russia; China; Muslim nations like Pakistan, Iran, Egypt, Malaysia, and Indonesia; and Latin American nations such as Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Ecuador. The question remains: Why is an alliance called the “North Atlantic” Treaty Organization interested in expanding into Asia, Latin America, and Africa?
