EN --Manlio Dinucci -- The Art of War: Who are the "useless wars" useful for?


The Art of War

Who are the "useless wars" useful for?

Manlio Dinucci

The song that deservedly won the Sanremo Festival is accompanied by a videoclip. It shows dramatic scenes of war and attacks. Despite all this, life must go ahead "because everything goes beyond your useless wars". Let's try replacing the videoclip with a docufilm of the latest facts. 

In Europe, NATO is deploying increasing forces (including Italian ones) on the Eastern front against Russia, depicted as a threatening aggressive power. 

In the framework of a nuclear rearmament costing $ 1.2 trillion, the United States is preparing to deploy the new nuclear bombs B61- 12 in Italy, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, and probably also in Poland and other Eastern countries. F-35 fighters will be equipped with the new bomb.   

The Italian Air Force takes part in the nuclear war exercises: it sent one of its teams to the US Strategic Command last September. 

Russia is also accused by US of deploying ground-based intermediate-range missiles on its own territory, in violation of the 1987 INF Treaty. Consequently  the Pentagon is preparing to deploy missiles similar to Pershing 2 and Cruise in Europe. 

This creates a military confrontation similar to the Cold War, which increases US influence in Europe and reunites the allies in the common strategy aimed at maintaining supremacy in a changing world. 

This entails an increasing military expenditure: Italy will bring it from 70 to 100 million euros a day; Spain to 50 million with a 73% increase by 2024; France will increase it by 40%, exceeding 135 million a day. To boost its nuclear arsenal, France will spend 37 billion euros by 2025.

It’s  a big business for miitary industries: the Lockheed Martin equity returns grew by 84% in three years. 

Functional to the powerful interests that fuel the US / NATO escalation are the Ukrainian neo-nazi groups. The are trained by US instructors transfered from Vicenza. Ukraine has become the "nursery" of the revival of Nazism in the heart of Europe (but in Italy this is hardly spoken). 

In Middle East, after the Russian intervention to support Damascus, the US / NATO plan to demolish the Syrian state (as already done with the Libyan one) failed. Now US and Nato, coordinated with Israel, try to balkanize the country by tearing it up pieces of the national territory. 

In a hearing at the US Congress on 6 February, the ambassador (retired) Robert Ford declared that for military and "civilian" operations in Syria (where around 2,000 US troops are still operating) the United States has spent 12 billion dollars from 2014 (mostly to arm and support jihadist movements in order to undermine the state from within). 

In East Asia - underlines the Pentagon's "National Defense Strategy 2018" - the United States faces "China, a strategic competitor using predatory economics to intimidate its neighbors while militarizing features in the South China Sea".  The Pentagon is examining a plan to send a heavily armed Marines rapid reaction force to Asia-Pacific. 

Losing economic ground with respect to China, the United States deploy their military forces. Thus they create new tensions in the region, not by chance when there are signs of détente between the two Koreas. 

The outlet may be another war, not "useless" but very useful for the empire strategy.
