Background and consequences
The idea for the creation of this page comes from „Illegale Kriege - Wie die NATO-Länder die UNO sabotieren / Eine Chronik von Kuba bis Syrien“ (2016) by Swiss historian and peace researcher Daniele Ganser. Much of the information here is taken from this book, bibliographic data also from Wikipedia, so that I can't guarantee accuracy... in doubt please do your own research!
