Editorial
How is Russia threatening Slovakia and NATO?
Slovakia should be neutral and should leave NATO. The alliance does not enforce a long-term peaceful reconciliation of conflicts following the ideas of the UN Charter. On the contrary, the organization has increasingly entangled in the US geopolitical games and has become a threat to the safety of the citizens in Slovakia. How? It is preparing them for a possible war against Russia. From this point of view, it is important to talk not only about building or non- building so-called “logistics centers” and NATO military bases in the territory of Slovakia. More important, however, is to ask Mr Glváč, the Minister of Defense, and President Andrej Kiska whether present Russia threatens the security of Slovakia and other European members of NATO. If it really threatens us, we should be told how. And regarding this context, to be explained, whether NATO military bases in Slovakia will be controlled by the Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic or by the US Army, or whether they will be of an offensive or defensive in its kind.
    In any case, if the Slovak government or president have not defined the Russian Federation as an enemy of the Slovak Republic yet, it is needless to talk about the new bases and logistics centers and placement of foreign troops in the territory of Slovakia. What should be the point of its all? To protect the Schengen border of the EU against smugglers of drugs by the special US forces as we were attempted to be misinformed in case of maneuvers in Lešť? Yet, the special units of the Police Force of the Slovak Republic are able to serve such a purpose. However, if it is about the possible invasion of the US military and NATO troops (including the Slovak army) to Ukraine, Slovak constitutional officials have to say that to the nation. And ask the nation for the permission, otherwise Slovakia will join the countries like Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, which, ignoring democracy as to settle down in their territories.
     Neither Minister Glváč nor President Kiska have not yet shown enough courage to openly communicate with the Slovak public, i.e. with its citizens. On the contrary, Fico and Minister Lajčák appointed themselves as “unwanted speakers „who want to convince us that Slovakia within the resolution of the crisis in Ukraine pursues the political dialogue and not a military solution. And they talk about the case of Crimea, where the crisis has been resolved peacefully and politically, as about an unacceptable Russian annexation.
    All in all, the “Slovak opinion“ is not relevant in NATO leadership, but it is “the strategy plan” issued by the White House. For Slovakia, it is sad and dishonoring that it is the NATO member without a mandate of the referendum of citizens which has never been held. And whether you want to admit it or not, “the international terrorism and Islamic radicalism " are not the enemy No. 1 for the current US and NATO command, but the Russian Federation. And it has always been, even during the USSR and the Warsaw Pact, even after their disintegration. For NATO and the Americans, Russia has never been a real partner, because they do not want to recognize and respect Russia as a partner. Recognizing someone as a partner at least means that we accept the state just as it is. If Russia was really partner for NATO (as it allegedly was in the days of unstable Boris Yeltsin) why the North Atlantic Alliance continues to expand and get closer to the Russian border? How would Americans feel if Europeans and Russia had developed a new military alliance and began to expand the borders of the EU and the United States? In any case, if Russia feels threatened by NATO, does it have the right to think this way?
It is not Russia that shows a great deal of aggressiveness, it is not Russian foreign policy, it is American foreign policy. Washington unilaterally believes in the myth that it has the right to play the role of the world's policeman and dictate to other states as a security and economic policy. And the worst of all, over the past recent decades, the USA have not even tried to solve conflict in a peaceful way, they just search for a military solution to the conflict. And it works easily and simply - first the enemy invented, the a lie is made up and consequently, the lie is converted to the truth and a “real” danger to the US, and the whole democratic world. “In the name of truth and eliminating threats," the States start up diplomatic pressure on allies,“ in order to find the truth and evidence " an receive the international support for the only possible solution – i.e. a military intervention and a subsequent occupation. Al-Qaeda is as an enemy quietly disappearing from the scene and is now being overshadowed by the successful steps of another terrorist organization, which appeared overnight - the Islamic State and the territory of Iraq, which was liberated by the USA from the oppression of tyrant Hussein...
In this context, we can only feel sorry for the US citizens who, due to imperfect American political system, cannot seriously alter the content of US foreign policy. They may indeed protest in front of the White House against the war and the president, but in practice, it cannot affect anything. The action is carried out earlier, faster and based on the media campaign and afterwards, after having realized what has happened, the very same “ free media” undertake another campaign and “ force” the Congress to investigate the issue, it is mandatory…
   Although current media PR of Brussels NATO Headquarters follow the same procedure. Let me set Ukraine, which I have already mentioned above, as an example. The public will not learn the essential truth that there was “someone " with the support of the US and the EU who had organized a national armed coup for at least 5 billion dollars, but then lied that Russia had invaded Ukraine and therefore it should be provided with military aid. Not directly, since the evidence of Russian aggression is missing, but in a more sophisticated way. NATO chief began by stating that the alliance must face a "new security situation in the area and prevent Russia to attack the Baltic States ... Why should they be invaded and where from - the Kaliningrad region? Although Ukraine is not a member of NATO, its summit in Brussels will be heard clearly that the alliance must improve “the collective defense ", increase military spending and seek the ways of military and technical assistance to Ukraine. Meanwhile, in Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, American paratroopers, special forces and tanks were placed in order to prevent “a Russian attack”. Later, the part of the soldiers will be moved to western Ukraine (to Lviv), where they teach and help and technically assist the “poorly armed "Ukrainian Army.
     Nevertheless, no one will provide the media with the information how long will these “military advisors " assist and train in Ukraine for. In doing so, it is obvious to everyone that NATO clearly took the side of the new Ukrainian power so that they supported "its way into the EU and a possible confrontation with Russia”. The public will supposing be informed that the Russian Air Force strongly distorts and tests in the airspace of some NATO member states, but forgets to clarify whether the distortions is reaction to the retaliation for Russian airspace by the aviation of NATO. Of course, the result should be as following: to create an atmosphere of threat and fear of Russia and the subsequent public pressure for further action against Putin.
     Dishonesty and ambiguity of the Slovak national policy towards Russia, NATO and the EU (USA) harms Slovakia and its citizens. It cannot just sit back and on two or three chairs at the same time. Recent developments in the EU and NATO, which continues to deepen the split of opinion regarding the question of cooperation or conflict with Russia; it allows Slovakia to leave the blind obedience and it is time for Slovakia to state clearly the truth and values it wants to defend. It would be so proud and morally strong that it can defend itself at the cost of withdrawal from NATO and the European Union, if it continues its biased and harmful confrontation with Russia. Everything has its limits, and it is too late to cry over spilt milk.
Time is relentless and will soon show whether Slovak moral policy fails as in the case of illegal bombing of Yugoslavia and the subsequent occupation of Kosovo and Metohija. Then, they morally failed because they pushed Slovakia into NATO and the EU at all costs. Blindly and foolishly they believed that it is possible to build a common European house on the principle of lasting peaceful cooperation and mutual understanding of all the countries in Europe. Even with the Russian Federation. Unfortunately, the European dream is on the contrary with the US policy, which does not want to see strong and united Europe. Unhappy President George Bush, jr ,once split Europe into its “new" and “old" part. Nowadays, Europe is divided into pro-Russian and anti-Russian parts.
