General Dwight Eisenhower was the first NATO supreme allied commander.
After assuming that post in 1951, General Eisenhower wrote about NATO’s goal:
“If in 10 years, all American troops stationed in Europe for national defense purposes have not been returned to the United States, then this whole project will have failed.”
It did fail because seven decades later, long after the Soviet Union dissolved, NATO still exists with thousands of American troops deployed throughout Europe.
The Warsaw Pact was disbanded in 1991 as Soviet troops withdrew from Eastern Europe.
The American empire exploited this peace to expand NATO and absorb former Warsaw Pact nations and even former Soviet republics while deploying NATO forces to Russia’s borders.
Today, US-NATO is threatening Russia.
