(en) Spaine, CNT #432:[Ukraine]A mafia called NATO By Andrés Sánchez (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

The United States is like the bully at school. He has created a club, NATO, to which anyone who wants to eat their sandwich at recess without it being stolen can -should- belong. Before, his excuse was that belonging to his club protected you from the bully of the other course, the USSR, who did not usually go near this part of the yard, but the USA scared you with the fact that it was much more dangerous than him. Now that the USSR has changed schools, it is increasingly clear that belonging to their club only saves you from your own bully, but what are you going to do, the school nerd...

But now something is changing. The awakening of China already predicted by Napoleon is coming. The tired eyes of the American bully can't stop looking at the little preschooler who has grown up and will undoubtedly be bigger and stronger than him. He already is. And he is making more and more friends, he sees them whispering and imagines them plotting against his reign. You can see in their eyes that when he yells he no longer inspires so much fear.

The United States is old and rusty, its old tactics no longer apply. He has made a fool of himself in Venezuela with Guaidó, although that has given him control of all Venezuelan currencies abroad. He has allowed the entry of Chinese and Russian influence throughout South America and even on the Mexican border. He relies too heavily on Turkey, which is becoming increasingly fractious, to keep the Middle East "pacified." The Taliban have stayed with Afghanistan and it has to be said that they were not so bad. Even its eternal ally Colombia has moved to the left, although before that the permanence of US troops in the area had already been signed.

Meanwhile, the Chinese, hard to fool in this story, are creating their own second world, introducing their companies, injecting money, improving relations and creating infrastructure in Africa, Asia and South America. The dream of the new Silk Road, from China through the north through Russia and Ukraine, and through the south through the Middle East, North Africa and Spain to Europe, the US government is not liking it at all, so it is happening to action.

On the southern border, although it does not appear in the media because it is not Europe, Morocco is increasingly tensing the situation in Western Sahara, much to the dismay of its neighbors Algeria and Mauritania. Spain, hitherto a stone guest in that troublesome conflict, is being forced by NATO to take sides with Morocco more and more clearly.

On the northern border she has pulled the strings on Russia and Ukraine enough to provoke a war she knows she will always make a cut for, selling weapons now and rebuilding later. But in addition, it has forced Europe to give up cheap Russian gas and depend on its expensive Liquefied Gas, it has thrown out the Nord Stream II project, built for eleven years to guarantee the supply of gas to Germany and, to top it off, it has organized a Summit to raise their arms spending in the midst of an economic crisis. They are all advantages.

Almost everything, because in this story we have not yet introduced the real protagonists. We had forgotten about the people who inhabit what we are calling a country such or a country, delimited by borders created by millennia of deaths in neighbor-versus-neighbor wars, by someone moving these boundaries here or by someone that mine is mine. Those people, who really belong to a tribe called Humanity and inhabitants of a country called planet Earth, who have been suffering the irrational struggles of our egotistical leaders and who, in the 21st century, can -must- become globally aware of what is happening.

And what is happening is that the dominant competitive mentality, imposed by the United States and its American dream, is causing the creation of two factions condemned to face each other. They are dragging us into a war that no one can win to sustain an unsustainable system. They are weakening their own side to strengthen themselves, while China is empowering its allies. Bad idea in the long run. The only possible solution is a reaction from those of us who will suffer the consequences, the people, demanding a more egalitarian and non-competitive world.
