(March 5, 2024) — Today, we present Episode #6 of “The International,” a world-spanning new video series brought to you by Jacobin Magazine and the Progressive International.

The original goal of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), according to its first Secretary General, was “to keep the Soviets out, the Americans in, and the Germans down.”

Today, the Soviet Union is gone, the United States is dominant, and Germany is de-industrializing. Has NATO achieved its goals? If so, why does it still exist? And why did Fidel Castro call it “the most perfidious instrument of repression known to mankind”?

For Episode #6 of The International, journalist Abby Martin examines NATO’s global footprint and explains why this “defensive alliance” might end up causing World War Three.
