Eurasia note #56 - NATO's Military Doctrine Is A Cult
Martial logic gets a pass, while managed outcomes pre-determine bloc thinking
NATO is a mind game; pursuing political objectives without military force.
Strategic Concept review identifies Russia as a “direct threat,” China as “challenge.”
Yet 300,000 high-readiness force exists only on paper; the spear is ideological.
Turkey agrees to let Finland, Sweden join NATO, which abandons the Kurds.
West drops yesterday’s heroes; greets the new kid in town.
The novelist’s dictum: fiction must make sense; reality does not.
Day 129 of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. (2,500 words or about 12 minutes’ read.)
Tbilisi, Jul 2, 2022
Western leaders shuffled between G7 and NATO meetings this past week sharing visions of military force free from reality. They appealed to the same international law they so often ignore.
In other words, the actors acted.
We spectators are the playgoers who are shortchanged. There are no metaphors to describe the growing gap between rhetoric and reality — such a game of self-deception and flagellation makes no synoptic sense.
We understand that words and actions sometimes do not correspond: it is the nature of politics to say one thing and do another. When a policy is clearly at odds with the verbiage, when there is no attempt at coherence, something is afoot. The actions make no sense, they do not stand by their own logic.
Only if you allow that these bureaucrats, bankers and corporate owners have some reason to gamble on Europe’s future, or plan to demolish and remake the continent, does any of this make sense — though it would fail the test of even a fictional plot.
NATO is linked to the U.S. Department of Defense, which is deeply involved in the project to remake society. The DOD invested in Moderna gene therapy long before COVID-19. 
Politicians and public servants are choreographed like synchronized swimmers. Interconnection within government, also called fusion, means that departments, NGOs and corporate foundations are integrated and move in lock step. This is the politicization of enforcement, the military and civil service.
Outcomes are managed and policy is co-ordinated with objectives in mind. It is the declared objective of the Rockefeller “Lockstep” document of 2010; of the World Economic Forum’s The Great Reset; of the Lynn Forester de Rothschild and the Pope’s Council on Inclusive Capitalism; and of the World Health Organization’s Pandemic Treaty.
Nor would it be the first time. The minutes of the Carnegie Foundation in 1908 posed the question: “Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?” The same foundations financing and controlling policy today, answer, “no.”

To seek an answer as to “why” is a fool’s errand, for the possible answers are infinite. At one extreme perhaps our beneficent rulers have plans to grant us 200-year lifespans and free energy, in return for giving up meat and living in 270 square foot apartments (about 25 square meters). More immediate problems, however, trouble the philanthropists.
Europe, whether defined narrowly as the European Commission, or broadly as one of the great cultural achievements of millennia that ranks with China for its technological prowess or Russia for its vaulting artistic achievement, is holed below the waterline: deep in debt and arguably bankrupt spiritually. It is in a metaphysical decline as well as a financial one.
That crisis is the topic for another article; but what is our predicament?
The wealthy who buy politicians and, nowadays, bureaucrats lack the intellectual refinement of their forebears who would contend with the preternatural on a grandiose scale, including brutality, massacre and war, but with their eye on something greater. Guilty as Icarus they nevertheless may have understood Orson Welles’ monologue in The Third Man:
“After all it's not that awful. You know what the fellow said: in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.
So long Holly.”
Welles worked for the Rockefellers. His War Of The Worlds Mercury radio broadcast was their project.
Midges swarm at dusk and harry us to distraction. Be it a crisis of their own making or induced, we cannot say. The overreach of government, especially in education, means bureaucrats bear the bulk of blame. But Rockefeller’s demented psychotrope long ago targeted education. Gates’ Common Core continues the assault.
Centralization, driven by the desire for power, means every mistake is metastasised. As we see with Critical Theory, a doctrine becomes a cult even before it is proclaimed from the pulpit.
The military is chosen to be the tip of the spear because it is held in high esteem — in the U.S. to the point of militarism. Veterans have earned their respect, for sure, without the need for the DOD to pay for the beat of drums and vocal gymnastics at every baseball game. The latter is money to an end. Feel free to disagree.
This fusion or lockstep does not mean that the owners acquiesce, however: the Rockefellers would not be pushing Lockstep if we were all of one mind. Consensus is a construct.
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. NATO gives every sign that it is not focused on freedom nor vigilant for its purchase. It is in the business, like every other branch of the corporativist state, on managing outcomes. Of privileging certain cohorts.
The military of old saw its duty as upholding the status quo. The modern military is reshaping society — but in whose interest?
Turkey won concessions from Finland and Sweden that will see them withdraw support for Kurdish autonomous forces, and expel Kurdish asylum seekers if Turkey deems them a terrorist. So NATO is sacrificing one ethnic group in place of another.
For all the talk in the U.S. of supporting the Kurds against Saddam Hussein and again Bashar al-Assad, they were only ever pawns in a bigger game as Ukraine discovers.
NATO trumpets that it has revitalized its institution, yet it is hollowed out. Its prime role is the aggrandizement of a bureaucracy. It provoked the conflict with Russia in order to justify NATO’s expansion; in turn to pursue changeable corporate goals.
Having provoked Russia, NATO’s bedraggled response shows it is less a military force than a vehicle for the aristocratic, imperial pretensions of trans-Atlantic bureaucratic and corporate interests.
Like Davos it is an excuse to expand state and private power. The fig leaf of transhumanism trotted out by Yuval Harari is derivative and incoherent — while it is ever more clear that Klaus Schwab was elevated for his acting skills. Like the neoconservative’s guru Leo Strauss, every cult has its deity personified.
The concessions won by Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan may go beyond what’s been announced publicly. Privately he may have got the nod to do away with what he sees as the Kurdish problem.
U.S. Congress has previously supported an independent Kurdish state comprising elements of Syria in the west to Iran in the east and Iraq in the south, north through Turkey. The cause was once so integral to the globalist NGOs that George Soros’ Antifa trained alongside Kurdish militants. 
Now there are bigger fish to fry but they have something in common: both regions are eyed by Western energy interests for their underground riches and overground pipelines.
