NATO made sense when the USSR was hostile, Paranoid & armed. Now that the Soviets are finished NATO is useful for what? It keeps government apparatchiks off the dole, gives them foreign travel. It helps the Puppet Masters set up the wars that Zionist crazies want. When the Cold War finished NATO should have too. It was admitted by George Robertson when he was the Secretary General saying Out of Area or Out of Business.
NATO ex Wiki
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is an intergovernmental military alliance based on the North Atlantic Treaty which was signed on 4 April 1949. The organization constitutes a system of collective defence whereby its member states agree to mutual defense in response to an attack by any external party. NATO's headquarters are in Brussels, Belgium, one of the 28 member states across North America and Europe, the newest of which, Albania and Croatia, joined in April 2009. An additional 22 countries participate in NATO's Partnership for Peace program, with 15 other countries involved in institutionalized dialogue programmes. The combined military spending of all NATO members constitutes over 70% of the global total. Members' defense spending is supposed to amount to 2% of GDP.
NATO was little more than a political association until the Korean War galvanized the organization's member states, and an integrated military structure was built up under the direction of two U.S. supreme commanders. The course of the Cold War led to a rivalry with nations of the Warsaw Pact, which formed in 1955. Doubts over the strength of the relationship between the European states and the United States ebbed and flowed, along with doubts over the credibility of the NATO defence against a prospective Soviet invasion—doubts that led to the development of the independent French nuclear deterrent and the withdrawal of the French from NATO's military structure in 1966 for 30 years. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the organization was drawn into the breakup of Yugoslavia, and conducted its first military interventions in Bosnia from 1992 to 1995 and later Yugoslavia in 1999. Politically, the organization sought better relations with former Warsaw Pact countries, several of which joined the alliance in 1999 and 2004.
Article 5 of the North Atlantic treaty, requiring member states to come to the aid of any member state subject to an armed attack, was invoked for the first and only time after the 11 September 2001 attacks, after which troops were deployed to Afghanistan under the NATO-led ISAF. The organization has operated a range of additional roles since then, including sending trainers to Iraq, assisting in counter-piracy operations and in 2011 enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya in accordance with U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973. The less potent Article 4, which merely invokes consultation among NATO members, has been invoked four times: by Turkey in 2003 over the Iraq War, twice in 2012 by Turkey over the Syrian Civil War after the downing of an unarmed Turkish F-4 reconnaissance jet and after a mortar was fired at Turkey from Syria and by Poland in 2014 following the Russian intervention in Crimea.
NATO Propaganda Failing In Germany [ 5 May 2014 ]
Germans have been abused for following naughty Adolf. They have been robbed by the Holocaust® Racketeers - see e.g. Jews With Light Fingers Took Germans For €63.2 Billion. Now they are not falling for the new Cold War being set up by NATO, the wonderful people who invaded Yugoslavia [ Why? ], Bosnia, [ Why? ], Afghanistan [ Why? ], Iraq [ Oil for Israel! ].
The Main Stream Media feed us the Propaganda, e.g. the entirely fraudulent fuss about Pussy Riot. One Russian alleged that Vladimir Putin is the best ruler they have had since Peter the Great. Was he wrong?
NATO Is Preparing To Start World War III Against Russia [ 11 July 2016 ]
Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev has accused NATO of preparing for a “hot” war against Russia and says rhetoric from alliance’s leaders is pushing the two sides toward a military confrontation............
His comments came as NATO leaders met in Warsaw for the final day of a summit, where the alliance endorsed a new major deployment of armed forces to Eastern Europe that Moscow has fiercely criticized.
Is it sabre rattling or worse? Western politicians are corrupt and vicious, controlled by the Puppet Masters, the Zionist crazies who run Israel. That is why they are making war on Arab countries that Jews don't like. This is not to say that Gorbachev is not bad news too.
