Parliament: Turkey should not drag the Netherlands into war

Today, 07:55

The Lower House believes that Turkey “should not drag” the Netherlands and other NATO countries into war. A substantial majority worries about Turkish operations against the Kurds in northern Syria.

By firing projectiles at Syrian targets a NATO member threatens to become directly involved in the war in Syria, MPs say. They point to Article 5 of the NATO treaty. It says that an attack on one of the member states in Europe or North America will be perceived as an attack on all, and that all countries will help to fend off the attacker.


VVD [right-wing party, biggest party in the Dutch coalition government] spokesman Ten Broeke said in the NOS Radio 1 News that Turkey “is starting to become an uncomfortable friend“. According to him, Turkey should not make suggestions around Article 5, undermining the credibility of that article. “NATO must not move into adventures where possibly a different agenda hides behind.”

Also Socialist Party Member of Parliament Van Bommel stressed the need to avoid such a situation.


Christian Democrat Appeal MP Knops said that Turkey carries out its own agenda under the cover of NATO. “That makes it complicated and complex.”

His D66 [‘left liberal’] colleague Sjoerdsma stressed that the situation will become even more threatening if Turkey will send ground troops into Syria. “Then it would really appear that Turkey wants to drag us as a NATO ally into something and we should really avoid that.”

The Justice and Development Party (AKP) government in Turkey has seized upon a terrorist attack carried out in the capital of Ankara as a pretext for escalating its military campaign against Kurdish-dominated regions in eastern Turkey, northern Syria and Iraq: here.

NATO poisonous paint scandal continues

This video from the USA says about itself:

23 March 2011

In the final installment of our 12-part series on cobalt and chromium blood levels, metal toxicology expert Dr. Michael McCabe discusses whether the metal wear debris generated by large diaphragm metal-on-metal hip implants, such as the recently recalled DePuy ASR hip device, may cause cancer. Metal wear debris is known to cause soft tissue damage, tissue necrosis, pseudo-tumors, cobaltism, metallosis, and other potential long term health problems. This is part 12 in our 12-part series.

Former employees of NATO depot in Ter Apel sound the alarm at health service

Today, 08:54

Former employees of the former NATO depot in Ter Apel have recently sounded the alarm at the health service in Groningen. According to RTV Noord places they question the investigation about remains of chromium-6 and uranium in the buildings.

The health service this year at the request of the Ministry of Defence did research at all former NATO depots where carcinogenic chromium paint used to be applied.

The ministry wanted to know if the current users of the buildings are also at risk to be exposed to chromium-6 now. That, according to the GGD Public Health Service, is not the case. In Ter Apel no chromium-6 was found; but uranium was found.

Additional research

The origin of this uranium is (still) not known. Uranium also occurs as a natural element in the soil. According to the Public Health Service, additional research by means of air samples is necessary. The Ministry of Defence has now adopted that recommendation.

Former employees, however, sounded the alarm, because the investigation is incomplete according to them. In the buildings in Ter Apel there are since the late nineteen nineties ventilation systems. There are grains in these which retain moisture.

The GGD has not investigated these fans, but is considering now to do so.


The concerns of the former employees have not only to do with the current use of the buildings, but also with the past.

A number of large warehouses that were once part of the NATO depot were thoroughly cleaned about 18 months ago. The employees of the cleaning company then wore no gloves and only paper masks.

“With four people we clean one shed”, says one of the men. “Sometimes two boxes of face masks were used on one day. Each box contains sixteen masks. Within an hour they were sometimes black, so much junk lying there. If you then read things about chrome paint, then you are wondering what you’ve cleaned up.”


Hundreds of former employees of the former NATO depots in the Netherlands in recent years have become ill. Since 1984 they have worked for a long time with carcinogenic chromium paint. Dozens of people who have worked in Ter Apel have been reported with health complaints.

Montenegro: Protesters cry No to Nato as alliance leader visits

Friday 16th October 2015

NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg was met with ­protests yesterday during his two-day visit to oversee Montenegro’s bid to join the imperialist alliance.

“We recognise the progress that this nation has made in pursuing reform, in contributing to international security, in promoting co-operation within the western Balkans,” Mr Stoltenberg told Montenegrin MPs.

“In close co-operation with Nato, Montenegro has reformed its armed forces and its intelligence services.”

But protesters rallied in the capital Podgorica with banners reading “No to Nato.” The same slogan has been sprayed on dozens of buildings throughout the city.

The government’s campaign to win support for the bid has come up against memories of Nato’s 1999 bombing of the then republic of Serbia and Montenegro in support of Kosovar separatists.

The US supports Nato membership for Montenegro but Russia opposes it.

NATO kills Afghan women, 2011

The BBC reports that during one of the infamous NATO night raids in Afghanistan, foreign troops killed two Afghan policemen and wounded two Kabul government army soldiers.

INTRODUCING ‘SAHAR SPEAKS’ “This project was borne out of anger — my own — at the deeply flawed, sexist system that is Kabul’s foreign media landscape. Not a single Afghan woman works for the international press in the country, in any capacity. And she never has.” [HuffPost]
