NATO, which was established as a defense alliance back in 1949 to safeguard against external threats, morphed into an attack union on its own initiative; the block has been illegally involved in many wars and its offensive posturing contradicts the UN charter, Swiss historian and author Daniele Ganser told Sputnik.

Swiss historian, political scientist and author Daniele Ganser has wrote a new book describing illegal wars involving NATO member states from 1945 until today: Iran 1953, Guatemala 1954, Egypt 1956, Cuba 1961, Vietnam 1964, Nicaragua 1981, Serbia 1999, Afghanistan 2001, Iraq 2003, Libya 2011, Ukraine 2014, Yemen 2015 and the ongoing war in Syria.
