NATO is undertaking a dangerous and provocative global expansion that threatens the peace of the world, a distinguished geopolitical analyst Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya writes in a new

By the time NATO started its war on Libya in March, 2011, it was conducting
operations in the Atlantic, Arctic and Indian oceans, the Mediterranean and
Red seas, and the Gulf of Aden, as well as in countries on four continents
that included Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, and the former
Yugoslavia, Nazemroaya says.

As part of these adventures, the U.S. and its NATO allies have lowered "a
new iron curtain" from the Baltic to the Aegean "to castrate and contain
the European core of Russia and its allies in Eastern Europe," Nazemroaya
writes. He points out that Sergey Markov, co-chair of the National
Strategic Council of Russia, described the 2008 war between Georgia and
South Ossetia as being, in effect, "a U.S. attack on Russia."

However, "NATO expansion is not just limited to Europe, but is in pursuit
of a worldwide capability to expand Washington's empire under a global
confederacy," writes distinguished Canadian sociologist Nazemroaya in The
Globalization of NATO(Clarity Press).

He warns the expansion will eventually lead "to East Asia and the borders
of the Chinese where the U.S. has been waging a shadow war to box China in
and checkmate it."

"The U.S. and NATO have literally authorized themselves to go to war
anywhere in the world," Nazemroaya continues. The 2010 Strategic Concept of
NATO, which was drafted by a committee chaired by Madeleine Albright and
vice-chaired by former Royal Dutch Shell CEO Jeroen van der Veer, "also
asserts the legitimacy of whatever actions NATO members take to secure
energy sources as the U.S. and NATO look towards securing all the world's
energy hubs."

Besides expanding its area of operations, since the end of the Cold War,
NATO's nuclear strike posture has become more aggressive. "Within NATO and
among U.S. allies a consensus has long been established to legitimize and
normalize the idea of using nuclear weapons in conventional wars,"
Nazemroaya says. "This consensus also aims to pave the way for pre-emptive
nuclear strikes against targets like Russia, China, and Iran."

Most of the world's countries, he points out, argue the U.S. and its NATO
allies have violated Articles 1 and 2 of the Non-Proliferation Treaty
(NPT), because the Pentagon has a NATO nuclear weapons sharing program. In
addition, "Through its continued construction of nuclear weapons the United
States is the chief violator of the NPT and the chief cause for the
development of Russian and Chinese nuclear weapons," Nazemroaya writes.

He observes that Russia, too, is re-arming itself with nuclear weapons and
has the largest nuclear arsenal in the world because Moscow strongly
believes its nukes "are what have stood in the way of U.S. attempts to
pummel Russia." What's more, Russia has copied the adoption of the
U.S./NATO pre-emptive nuclear attack doctrine.

He goes on to say, "Washington has made it categorically clear that it
could attack Iran and North Korea with nukes." Nazemroaya notes the Obama
administration says it will not honor NPT's provisions barring a nuclear
attack on certain non-nuclear states, "meaning Iran and North Korea." Obama
says those two countries aren't complying with the NPT.

"This was a fallacious claim," Nazemroaya continues, as in the case of the
Iranians, the IAEA "has repeatedly reported that it has not found any
evidence that Tehran has a nuclear weapons program and is in breach of
NPT." And North Korea withdrew from the NPT in 2003.

In a Foreword to the book, NATO is described by former Assistant UN
Secretary-General Denis Halliday as a "dangerous instrument" of U.S.
aggression that is undermining the United Nations and "must be abolished."

Authorities around the world have showered Nazemroaya with praise for his
work in general and The Globalization of NATO in particular. "I hope this
book will be read by very, very many who can turn this morbid fascination
with violence into constructive conflict resolution," writes Johan Galtung,
Professor Emeritus of Peace Studies and Sociology at the University of
Oslo, Norway, and recognized as the founder of peace and conflict studies.

"This book is a must read for those committed to reversing the tide of war
and imperial conquest by the world's foremost military machine," adds
Michel Chossudovsky, Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of
Ottawa, Canada.

Again, "Nazemroaya's book, in addition to reminding us that the role of the
United Nations has been confiscated by NATO, elaborates the danger that the
North Atlantic Treaty represents to world peace," writes Jose L. Gomez Del
Prado, former Chairman of the United Nations Working Group on the Use of
Mercenaries, of Ferney-Voltaire, France. And, in the words of Tiberio
Graziani, President of the Institute of Advanced Studies in Geopolitics, of
Rome, "This is a book really necessary to understanding the role of NATO
within the frame of long-term U.S. strategy. It not only provides an
articulate analysis on the Atlantic Alliance: it is the best modern text
devoted to the hegemonic alliance. With this book Nazemroaya reconfirms his
ability as a brilliant geopolitical analyst."

Adds Admiral Vishnu Bhagwat, former Chief of the Naval Staff of India,
"(Nazemroaya) is one of the prescient thinkers and writers of contemporary
times who deserves to be read and acted upon by people with a conscience
and concern for humanity's future." And Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann, former
Foreign Minister of Nicaragua and President of the 63rd Session of the
United Nations General Assembly, said: "The Globalization of NATO by Mahdi
Darius Nazemroaya is simply magnificent, erudite and devoid of the
ethnocentrism to which one has become so accustomed from Western authors…"
