Russia to Stop Further NATO Expansion East

US-dominated NATO is a killing machine for war-making against invented enemies at a time when no real ones exist.

None of its member states face external security threats.

Phony claims otherwise unjustifiably justify pouring countless trillions of dollars down a black hole of waste, fraud and abuse to perpetuate the US-led Western weapons and munitions racket.

Hegemon USA is the world’s leading merchant of death, destruction and human misery.

According to the Center for International Policy (CIP):

“There was a massive surge in US FMS (foreign military sales) in 2020 to $110.9 billion.” 

“This number was 59% higher than the 2019 FMS figure— and one of the highest figures ever for that category of sales.” 

Adjusted for inflation, US 2020 FMS was nearly 75% higher than average annual Obama/Biden regime weapons and munitions exports, as well as during Trump’s first three years in office.

Instead of prioritizing world peace and stability, both right wings of the US war party perpetuate endless wars in pursuit of their imperial aims, along with more greatly enriching its weapons and munitions makers.

CIP arms and security project director William Hartung explained that (what I call the mother of all state-sponsored 9/11 false flags to that time) opened the floodgates for massive increases in US military spending.

Adjusted for inflation, it was “over $14 trillion” since 2001.

Top US weapons and munitions makers Lockheed Martin, Boeing, General Dynamics, Raytheon, and Northop Grumman received over $2.1 trillion during this 20-year period.  

“(T)he biggest beneficiaries of war spending — and greatest source of fraud and price gouging – were reconstruction contractors like Halliburton’s Kellogg, Brown, and Root (KBR) division.

Invented Russian, Chinese, Iranian and North Korean threats — that don’t exist — provide an invented pretext for spending trillions of dollars on militarism and belligerence that’s falsely called defense.

Along with enriching other corporate favorites — notably Pharma — handouts to merchants of death come at the expense of vital homeland needs.

On Monday, the White House imposter signed into law the largest US military spending bill since WW II ended.

Authorizing nearly $770 billion for FY 2022, the true amount for US militarism and belligerence for the year ahead is over double this amount — with all categories of spending included, notably unrevealed/virtually open-ended intelligence community and black budgets.

Commenting on the measure, Hartung said the following:

“The last thing we need to do is be throwing more money at the Pentagon.”

“This whole idea that China and Russia are military threats to the US has primarily been manufactured to jump up the military budget.”

Throughout most of the post-WW II period — especially post-9/11 — US-dominated NATO posed an unparalleled threat to peace, stability and everyone everywhere.

Justifiably concerned about the menace to its security posed by US-dominated NATO, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said the following on Tuesday:

“Our leadership has repeatedly said we can no longer tolerate the situation that is developing in the immediate vicinity of our borders.” 

“We cannot tolerate NATO expansion.” 

“We will not just prevent it. We will put a stop to it.”

That’s what upcoming Geneva talks in January between Russia and the US will be all about.

Officials from Britain, France and Germany will also likely be involved.

Russian priorities include legally binding security guarantees — likely in treaty form — along with no further NATO expansion eastward toward its borders.

Moscow also seeks the removal of US/NATO troops and missiles away from its borders, removal of nuclear weapons from Eastern Europe, as well as no establishment of US/NATO bases in former Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries.

Ryabkov stressed that Geneva talks “should not come up with some kind of dimensionless agenda when it is in our interest to include topics that have long been sorted out through other channels.” 

“We have to focus exclusively on the two draft documents that we have presented.”

Moscow will not accept a Biden regime attempt to “dilute” upcoming talks.

“We would conclude, in such a case, that the US is not ready for a serious conversation.” 

“We call for negotiations, intensively and quickly.” 

“We believe that the issue is not just overdue. It is overripe” — demanding quick resolution.

Separately, Sergey Lavrov said that Moscow will firmly insist that Minsk I and II conflict resolution agreements between Kiev and Donbass are inviolable and must be  enforced.

If the Zelensky regime continues to breach their binding provisions, it should be held accountable according to the rule of law.

On Wednesday — following Biden regime orders — the US-installed Ukrainian puppet approved a so-called information security measure to counter a nonexistent Russian threat.

Following Biden regime orders as well, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said the following:

“Demands about security guarantees and stopping the EU and NATO’s eastward expansion are a purely Russian agenda with completely unacceptable conditions, especially regarding Ukraine (sic).”

He apparently doesn’t understand Russia’s resolve on this issue.

For the first time, Vladimir Putin appears committed to no longer tolerate growing US/Western threats to Russian security.

Wanting peace, not war, he’ll likely do what’s necessary to deter US/NATO threats with appropriate countermeasures.

They’re long overdue.

A Final Comment

Last weekend, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the following:

Hegemon USA and NATO vassal states may not fully understand Russia’s resolve about permitting no further alliance expansion eastward.

“(W)e would like to emphasize that the non-expansion of NATO and preventing the deployment of weapons systems near the Russian border that threaten Russia’s security will be front and center during the upcoming talks with the US and NATO.” 

“This is something those who until now have been unable to grasp Russia’s position must understand.”
