France Pretends NATO is About the North Atlantic

06/25/202311 Comments

Someone must have bought Emmanuel Macron a map. How else to explain his amazing geographical discovery that Japan is not, in fact, located in the North Atlantic?

For those not keeping up with the wild, wooly world of geopolitricks, this latest round of cartographic confusion began to unfold last month when the increasingly inaccurately named North Atlantic Treaty Organization announced it was planning to open a "liaison office" in Japan despite the fact that (by all accounts) the Japanese archipelago remains firmly situated in the Pacific. Earlier this month, French president Macron lodged his reservations about the plan, warning that if NATO enlarges its geographic reach too much, "we will make a big mistake."

That NATO would seek to extend its reach beyond its supposed North Atlantic regional remit is hardly surprising. In fact, as anyone following the rise of the Evil Empire will know all too well, NATO has been involved in a process of truly global expansion for decades now. But still, France's objection to this brazen attempt by NATO to stray from its nominal North Atlantic confines presents a new twist on the story.

So, what does all of this mean? And if it isn't reined in, where will NATO be heading next? Let's find out, shall we? . . .

    This is a keeper…
    Corbett’s document link at the sentence:
    ‘…the lie that NATO would not expand “one inch to the east” after the fall of the Soviet Union.’

      @ Homie RemedySupply,

      The rule of law no longer exists. That’s the conclusions reached by this link found below and from the recommended viewing above.
      Without the rule of law you can do all kinds of things normally considered taboos.

      I urge everyone to view this. I observed in
      Katherine Watts’ substack a preamble to healthcare providers that everyone should present to your healthcare providers on your next visit. Putting Healthcare providers on notice, hopefully the healthcare provider won’t know the rule of law doesn’t exist anymore and will respect your wishes to contract services in this
      new paradigm.
      Such a brilliant idea from a para legal writer.

        And now will this play of grandstanding have weight on the scales of justice? Law that no longer exists? We’ll see.
        We are quickly becoming a captured imperial barracks empire.

          When the rule of law breaks down and the state is revealed for what it is. People come out into the streets and are meet with more violences of the state.
          This interesting video gives some practical ways of protecting yourself from RF- Directed energy weapons for crowd control. Be prepared. It’s just a matter of scale.

    Unrelated to this video:

    Here is what I have been fearing for a long time. Here is why I stayed away from crypto, including Bitcoin. I knew it would get hijacked eventually. Throw stones at me all you want, but you know crypto will never be the alternative currency. The PTB will never allow it because of its super easy, track-trace-and-database capabilities. Those who invented blockchain just handed them the moon on a silver platter.

    The central idea behind NATO is to provide a veneer of majority consensus and support to the US MIC.

    As a side note, an interesting fact is that fighter jets from the peace nation of Norway officially dropped 588 bombs on Libya in 2011. Then prime minister Jens Stoltenberg gave the green light to kill civilians. Later the “bravery” he showed as an order-follower was awarded with the position of Secretary General of NATO.

    After Norwegians were highly active in destroying the African country, not even a single Norwegian (correct me if I am wrong), put the flag of Libya on their Facebook profile. However, years later, almost every Norwegian raised the Ukranian flag when Russia attacked their neighbour.

    Well, what to expect when 94.3% of the population trust their national government.

      Frode, your comment is an example of why I’m grateful that James has a knowledgeable and involved international audience. (Ditto mkey.)

      The apparent reason for the rise of Norway’s PM to NATO’s SG confirms that we’re wise to follow more than just “the money.” We must also follow the breadcrumb trail of inhumane actions that lead to ever-higher positions of (so-called) power.

      (PS: I love your invisible sarc tags!)

    Great job, as ever, James. I can’t remember who Oceania is fighting anymore …
