Video: “NATO-EXIT”. Michel Chossudovsky

70 years ago NATO was born. In April 1949, The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) established what was designated as the doctrine of “Collective Security” under Art. 5 of the Washington Treaty.

NATO has a sordid history of aggression and war crimes.  The US not only continues to “occupy” World War II “axis countries” (Italy, Germany), it has used the NATO emblem to install US military bases throughout Western Europe, as well as in Eastern Europe in the wake of the Cold War, extending into the Balkans in the wake of NATO’s war on Yugoslavia.

NATO is a criminal entity, an instrument of the Pentagon. There is no “Alliance”. There is military Occupation.

What is required is a vast movement in Europe and North America in support of NATO-Exit. 

Michel Chossudovsky calls for a Country by Country withdrawal from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization as well as closure of US military bases.

 

There is a (somewhat contradictory) clause within the Treaty of the Atlantic Alliance (Article 13) which enables withdrawal from NATO. This clause has to be examined and a strategy must be envisaged.
