Is the Atlantic mutating into the world’s largest ocean?

With ever-strengthening ties between the United States, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Pacific Four (Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea), as well as the sugar daddy regime in Taiwan, the noose for China is being tightened. Dangerous moves are turning the Atlantic Ocean into the largest – or only – ocean in the world, when everything seems to indicate that, with NATO expansion, it will also swallow the Indo-Pacific.

Nikkei News reported that a military bloc of 31 countries (European plus the US and Canada) is planning to open a liaison office in Japan, and its goal is to “allow the military alliance to have regular consultations with Japan and key partners in the region.” such as South Korea, Australia and New Zealand as China becomes a new challenge alongside its traditional focus on Russia.”

The cards are on the table as he adds that NATO and Japan will take further steps to expand cooperation by signing an agreement known as the Tailored Partnership Program. And the hype around the signing is so great that they want it before the NATO summit in Vilnius, Lithuania, in June.

In turn, Tokyo also plans to open an independent mission to the Atlantic Alliance, which is not part of its embassy in Belgium, Nikkei Asia clarifies, which NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg himself confirmed in January. NATO’s active relationship with AP4, as he calls the four countries involved in the siege of Beijing, is evidenced by Stoltenberg’s photograph with representatives from Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea after their meeting on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Madrid, the confirmation of the Strategic Concept until 2022 and its a comprehensive approach to securing, he said, freedom and security through political and military means.

This expansion should not surprise us when the sea rose is featured on an emblem or shield with spikes pointing to each cardinal direction: north, south, east and west, as well as a presence in Latin America and the Caribbean, highlighted recently from US military bases and NATO exercises in these waters.

It is also a reaction to a geopolitical reconfiguration in a world that demands multipolarity and multilateralism, and it is no secret that Russia and China are leading this complex effort to achieve balance and, above all, greater justice in relations.

Stoltenberg met with representatives of Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea.

US Strength or Weakness?

NATO expansion is a key element to advance and guarantee the interests of the US with its European appendage, establishing new borders that pose threats of force, which are also accompanied by sanctions of all kinds, to make people pay a very high price Stop those who you consider enemies, call them “systemic challenge” in the case of China and “the most significant and direct threat” when you define Russia.

For or against both nations, the way is to “weaken” them, hence the new threat of war, forcing them to invest an important part of their economic, scientific and modernization efforts in industry and military services, which are mostly unproductive. In the case of China, it is clear that nothing overshadows the United States and its allies more than the pressure of the Asian giant, which is successfully developing all its economic, diplomatic and cooperation opportunities, primarily with the world of the South. .

Hence the pushes and the use of NATO armored vehicles in response. The Strategic Concept agreed with NATO accuses China of using “a wide range of political, economic and military tools to expand its global presence”, which, according to its hegemonic vision, is the strength of only the US and its European allies. I also don’t like the growing ties between Moscow and Beijing, because, they say, this is a mutual effort to undermine the international order and “goes against our values ​​and interests.”

Returning to Nikkei News’ revelation of the NATO office in Japan, the outlet added that Danish Ambassador to Japan Peter Taxo-Jensen told them in a telephone interview that the NATO liaison office would be the first of its kind in India. -Pacific and something more than symbolic. But beware, when we see NATO’s provocative successes, let’s think more about who’s pulling the strings.

The similarity of the Atlantic Alliance Strategy with the postulates of the National Security Strategy of the Joe Biden government is obvious, with the difference that it clearly states that it is about ensuring the interests of the United States in the world and for this purpose building the strongest possible coalition of nations. , hence the increased presence in the Asian seas and oceans, involving the modernization and strengthening of the military, into what they consider an era of strategic rivalry, as Washington does not allow other powers when its political base-culture as a nation remains Manifest Destiny.

Therefore, Europe should not be encouraged, because this idea, first expressed in 1845 in an article by journalist John O’Sullivan, expresses in all its scope the imperialist belief that the United States is a nation chosen or intended by God to grow. and expand, and for them it is in full force. Of course, China does not sit idly by and does not remain deaf. In the meantime, these are the warnings of Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning when TASS asked her at a May 4 press conference: “The Nikkei reported on Wednesday that NATO plans to open a liaison office in Japan next year. The station will allow the military alliance to hold regular consultations with Japan. Do you have anything to add?

Mao Ning replied: “Asia is an anchor of peace and stability and a promising land for cooperation and development, not a battlefield for geopolitical competition. NATO’s continued eastward thrust in the Asia-Pacific region and interference in regional affairs will inevitably undermine regional peace and stability and spark violent confrontation. This requires great vigilance on the part of the countries of the region.”

“NATO should stop drawing ideological lines, fomenting political confrontation, or trying to start a new cold war,” said Zhao Lijian, deputy director of the Information Department of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, adding: “It should abandon the Cold War mentality. and a zero-sum game mentality and stop making enemies. NATO has already turned Europe upside down. It should not seek to destabilize Asia and the world.”

And why not, although it still seems like a utopia compared to the dystopia that Washington is building, perhaps the Indo-American journalist and analyst Farid Zakaria is right in arguing that “one of the defining features of the new era is that it is post-American. By that I mean that the pax americana of the last three decades has come to an end.” This shows the rise of the rest of the world, which could end the imperial order. In this sense, the 21st century can become decisive if Mankind is not destroyed.
