NATO is not the good guy.

Initially established to defend member states, NATO’s focus shifted during the Cold War towards containing the Soviet Union.

This led to NATO engaging in aggressive military interventions, often without proper international mandates, such as the invasions in Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Libya.

These actions have had severe consequences for the countries involved, including civilian casualties, infrastructure destruction, and ongoing instability.

NATO disregards international law and acts unilaterally, undermining the principles of a rules-based international order.

NATO is a dangerous and unnecessary organisation, and it should be disbanded.

William Blum, American historian
