In a by-gone era seven wandering beggars arrived at a wayside resting place- (අම්බලම) in an evening to rest their weary limbs and feed their hungry stomachs. After exchanging pleasantries, they all decided to have some gruel for dinner. All agreed to contribute a handful of rice to the common gruel that they were about to prepare. So, they went about preparing a fire and then set up a pot of water on a hastily constructed fireplace. Then they all ‘took a handful of rice’ from their shoulder bags and carefully added each one’s contribution to the boiling water in the pot. They covered the pot and allowed it to cook.

After much waiting and anticipation thinking that the gruel is cooked, they began to ladle the stuff into their plates – only to find hot water and nothing else! None of them have contributed any, thinking – others will!

Is this not what is happening among the NATO countries today?

Why are Ukrainians are dying to keep NATO in business? The main question which is not addressed openly is – Is the current suffering of a vast majority of Ukrainians worth the carrot of NATO expansion to Ukraine? It is Ukraine and Russia that are bleeding, fighting each other. For Russians expansion of NATO into Ukraine is an existential threat. ie: it threatens their very existence and survival. In other words, a threat big enough for them to go for all-out war – meaning an all-out Nuclear War! They have mentioned that even if the whole of Russian leadership gets wiped out on a first strike, a DEAD HAND mechanism will fire away all of the Nuclear Arsenal in Russia automatically at pre-planned targets. That’s MAD – Mutually Assured Destruction for those asking for it and Armageddon and thousands of years of Nuclear Winter for any cockroach that survives!

Is this a worthwhile future for the world or at close quarters to the rich European nations – France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, the Scandinavian Countries and many others already in the NATO camp – enjoying a very high standard of life than most in the rest of the world? Certainly not. Do they want to even think of life in a Nuclear Winter let alone the current winter!

Except for a few former COMECON countries such as Poland, Romania and others of their ilk, who have an axe to grind over their past under the Soviet Union, it will soon dawn on others, that they are not ready to go for nuclear war with Russia. Countries such as Poland and Romania are ready to send armaments to Ukraine so that Ukrainians will fight with their Slavic Brothers on somebody else’s war to the last Ukrainian!

Let us hope before this winter is over, this war will come to an end at a negotiating table, with Russia retaining most of its winnings and a Peace Treaty that will prevent Ukraine from ever dreaming of joining NATO.

What will ensue may lead to the end of NATO as well as the EU. The nationalist forces are tugging at their very seams already! The future of Europe will be under a Common Security Framework for Europe and not under NATO! The US will be kept at a safe distance away, across the Atlantic where Monroe Doctrine can prevail! As Prof Mearsheimer says, the UNIPOLAR moment is over – the world is already Multi-polar and it will stay that way for the foreseeable future!

This war, in fact, is a gimmick by NATO to stay in business and show that it is relevant to the security of Europe. It was only a few years ago that the Trump Administration was about to write its obituary and epitaph! Soon a vast majority of Europeans will shy away from NATO’s false narrative. NATO only helps to keep alive the Military Industrial Congressional Complex in the US alive and kicking that keeps the 1% running the United States and the rest in a perpetual delusion of Pax Americana and an imagined greatness – Make America Great Again!

Innocent Ukrainians need not die for the US Military Industrial – Congressional Complex to stay in power and to keep the European NATO / EU bosses in unbridled wealth and power!
