The People's Summit was held in Chicago this past weekend, and the message seems to be pretty clear: it's time to dissolve NATO.

Because NATO still resists nuclear disarmament.

Because NATO thinks the answer to security comes from missiles and shields.

Because NATO's response to the Arab Spring is to look for opportunities to intervene militarily.

And that doesn't event mention NATO's disastrous quarter-century Afghanistan War.

People EVERYWHERE will be participating in the call to dissolve NATO as NATO meets in Chicago this week. Join the call and use the #dissolveNATO together with the hashtag being used by others where YOU live:

Conveniently, a large military alliance -- NATO -- bristling with weapons, has announced itself ready to step in and contest annexations of territories by Russia. For NATO, the measure of resolvability of conflict is firepower.

How do you formulate a statement that can somehow convince the United States to eliminate its threatening nuclear weapons?  How do you formulate the 10th request? Or the 100th? Knowing all the time that the United States is in the position -- will always be in the position -- to say, "No" ?  At what point does it dawn on you that the United States will never give up its nuclear weapons, because it has the power and the rest of the world doesn't?

From now on, when you think drones, think AFRICOM; and when you think AFRICOM, think Germany . . . .
