The mask comes off as duplicitous Kerry says West's 'Trans-Atlantic' global hegemony is at stake in Ukraine, NATO should 'return' to its original mandate of 'fending off Russia'

NATO must return to its original goal of fending off Russia, seizing the chance presented by the Ukrainian crisis to sever Europe from Moscow and move it closer to America, the US secretary of state said. Or else the bloc's global leadership may be lost.

John Kerry delivered the confrontational call in a speech to the Atlantic Council think tank in Washington, DC. He said the stand-off in Ukraine had resulted from a "uniquely personally-driven set of choices" and is "a wake-up call" for NATO. He added that now the military bloc must turn the page on two decades of focusing on expeditionary operations and take a stand against "Putin's Russia."

"After two decades of focusing primarily on our expeditionary missions, the crisis in Ukraine now call us back to the work that this alliance was originally created to perform," Kerry told the audience.

Comment: "Our expeditionary missions"?! Wow, is that statement ever dripping with imperialistic hubris! In one phrase, Kerry has let slip the mask of 'humanitarian intervention', 'Right to Protect', 'War on Terror' and all the other BS Western liberal paramoralisms to acknowledge that the bombings of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and elsewhere were in fact military operations 'out there on the periphery of our empire'.

As regards "what this alliance was originally created to perform", NATO was originally the military occupation by the U.S. of Western Europe once WW2 ended. The only thing that has changed is that its sphere of influence has extended right up to Russia.
