This is a comprehensive, sobering review by Jonathan Cook who concludes that Washington’s greatest fear is that, as its economic muscle atrophies, Europe’s vital trading links with China and Russia will see its economic interests – and eventually its ideological loyalties – shift eastwards, rather than stay firmly in the western camp.

The question is: how far is the US willing to go to stop that? So far, it looks only too ready to drag Nato into a military sequel to the Cold War – and risk pushing the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation.

The claim of a rampant, revived Russian imperialism appears not to be founded in any obvious reality. But it is a very effective way for NATO bureaucrats to justify enlarging their budgets while the arms industries that feed off NATO and imbedded in western capitals substantially increase their profits.
