NATO generals advocate ‘pre-emptive’ nuclear war

From British daily The Guardian:

Pre-emptive nuclear strike a key option, Nato told

Ian Traynor in Brussels

Tuesday January 22, 2008

The west must be ready to resort to a pre-emptive nuclear attack to try to halt the “imminent” spread of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction, according to a radical manifesto for a new Nato by five of the west’s most senior military officers and strategists.

Calling for root-and-branch reform of Nato and a new pact drawing the US, Nato and the European Union together in a “grand strategy” to tackle the challenges of an increasingly brutal world, the former armed forces chiefs from the US, Britain, Germany, France and the Netherlands insist that a “first strike” nuclear option remains an “indispensable instrument” since there is “simply no realistic prospect of a nuclear-free world”.

Irresponsible, dangerous militarist machospeak. Continuing George W. Bush’s Plamegate scandal and other lies about the so-called “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq, which were not there. And the so-called building by Iran of nuclear bombs, as the Bush administration shrilly proclaimed and kept proclaiming… even after its own secret services said that that had been untrue at least since 2003.

When did those NATO big brass ever protest against the real “spread of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction” to India [see also here], Pakistan, Israel, and South Africa under apartheid tyranny (abolished after the fall of the apartheid regime)? Never … as those were buddies of the NATO great powers, and were aided and abetted by them in getting those criminal destructive nuclear weapons.

An “increasingly brutal world”; “thanks” to, to a major extent, NATO great powers themselves.

British daily The Morning Star comments on this:

Genocidal manifesto

(Tuesday 22 January 2008)

THE blood-chilling “manifesto for a new NATO” should remind people why Clemenceau said that war was too important to leave to the generals.

There are too many weak politicians ready to hide behind the bellicose comments of military leaders and to adopt their agenda.

US steps up pressure on India to wrap-up Indo-US nuclear treaty: here.

The militarisation of the European Union continues to gather momentum. Last week, the European Parliament approved a directive that will remove the essential distinction between weapons and other goods.
