One of the most important summits in the history of the North Atlantic Treaty is kicking off on Thursday and the outcome of this meeting will shape the political landscape for years to come. And I repeat, for the sake of emphasis: NATO, watch it! We don’t want a war!
Disclaimer: this opinion article has been directed at NATO because of the upcoming summit and because the numerous hints that have led me to believe that, behind closed doors, a war is being prepared. However, I am not Putin’s fan (or anybody’s for that matter!) and of course that I am mindful that it is not only NATO which may start a war, but Russia as well. So Russia, you watch it too!
History has a sad tendency to repeat itself, and terrifyingly enough, all the signs of an impending World War are here: economic downturn (which doesn’t seem to go away no matter how hard everybody tries), lots of military confrontations all over the planet, overpopulation and, unlike other times: a sick media interest in covering war and blowing things out of proportion (this is especially obvious in the Western Europe and North America).
