Fidel Castro: NATO, The Most Perfidious Instrument in the History of Humanity

Guantanamo: In a reflection published under the title “NATO´s Genocidal Role,” Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro says that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has become the most perfidious instrument of repression ever known in the history of humankind.

NATO took on its global repressive role as soon as the USSR ceased to exist; it was the USSR that was taken as pretext by the United States to set up the alliance, Fidel explains, and notes that NATO´s criminal objective was felt in Serbia, whose people heroically fought the Nazis troops during WWII.

Fidel recalls that in an effort to disintegrate Yugoslavia after the death of Josip Broz Tito, NATO countries sent their troops in March 1999 to support secessionists in Kosovo, but they were met with strong resistance.

The Yankee administration, on the advice of the right-wing Jose Maria Aznar government, attacked Serbia´s TV stations, the bridges over the Danube River and Belgrade; while the Chinese embassy in that country was destroyed by US bombs that killed several diplomats.

President Slodoban Milosevic overwhelmed by the powerful aggressors and the disappearance of the USSR, yielded to NATO´s demands by admitting its troops into Kosovo under a UN mandate, which finally led to his political defeat and indictment by the Hague court, which was not impartial at all. He died in prison under weird circumstances.

Fidel says that he published nine articles on the Cubadebate website from February 21 to 27 on the role of NATO in Libya and about what he thought it would happen. And he adds that he is now obliged to offer a wrap-up of the main ideas that he expressed then, and about the events that have been taking place as they were predicted, precisely when a protagonist of the story, Muammar Al-Gaddafi, was seriously wounded by the most modern NATO warplanes that attacked his vehicle; he was captured alive and then murdered by men of the military organization.

His (Gaddafi´s) dead body has been kidnapped and exhibited like war booty, in what is a behavior that violates the most elemental principles of Muslim habits and of other religions prevailing in the world. They have announced that Libia will soon be declared a “Democratic State and Defender of Human Rights,” Fidel says and notes he will continue to write about these important and outstanding developments.
