The public relations service of the NATO Joint Force Command in Naples wrote to the daily Il Manifesto about Manlio Dinucci's article « In the USA/NATO grip ». They did not send us a copy of this letter, even though it also pointed out a mistake made by our English translator. In the past, the US State Department directly contacted the news outlets whose articles we publish in several languages, pressuring them to cease all collaboration with us. However, this approach seemed impossible with a Communist publication. Here we print the letter, the response given by the Italian geographer, and our comment.
Jens Stoltenberg: [NATO Secretary General] : Foreign Secretary Johnson, my friend Boris, Welcome to the NATO Headquarters and it's really a pleasure to meet you today, here, and thank you also for updating me on the latest developments in the Salisbury investigation. The attack in Salisbury was the first use of a nerve agent on Alliance territory. It showed total disrespect for human lives. And the attack was an unacceptable breach of international norms and rules. NATO Allies have been (...)
The German army is setting up in Rostock both a Nato headquarters (photo), tasked with coordinating a potential naval war against Russia and the joint headquarters of the German and Polish fleets. Poland, which has a coast on the Baltic Sea, has entrusted the management of its navy to Germany. The German firm, Thyssen Krupp Marine Systems, should sell three new submarines to Poland for about 2.4 billion euros. However, the European rules on tender offers force Poland to take into (...)
There is a party that, even if it does not appear, takes part in the Italian elections: the NATO Party. It is formed by a transversal majority, that explicitly or tacitly supports Italy's membership of the Great Alliance under U.S. command. This explains why, at the height of the electoral campaign, the main parties tacitly accepted the additional commitments undertaken by the government in the meeting of 29 Nato ministers of Defence (for Italy Roberta Pinotti), on 14-15 February in (...)
The Atlantist Press has been claiming for years that President Bachar el-Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. Except that according to US Secretary for Defense, General Jim Mattis, this is fake news. Like Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons, this story, which has been occupying the columns of newspapers for the last five years, is pure war propaganda.

The agenda has not yet been communicated. But it is already written in the «National Defense Strategy 2018», that the US (...)
When Nato Member States use force to occupy foreign states, they are always ready with some excuse. It is “to support them”. Italy is not derogating from this rule. From the Baltics to Africa, the Italian presence is virtually felt throughout.
