    Nato is Neat-O!

    Since I don't hear much about it, I assume it's doing its job.

    Without US it would be cool. But US is world war monger #1 these days... Not happy to be on aggressor side.

    Wrote in another thread about how NATOs power lies in its members answering the call to rally when NATO deems necessary. So that means if a member of NATO calls for assistance, all must answer the call no matter the scope of the adversy at risk of diminishing the reputation of attacking one NATO members means attacking all NATO members.

    Article 5 is meant to scare the shit out of anyone who dares attack a member of NATO but Article 5 doesnt mean shit of NATO members dont take is seriously and respond with extreme prejudice.

    Turkey served in Nato with pride. Current leadership in turkey is shit. I get it. we get it. but leaderships change. Deals stay.
    Hell i was god damn proud of myself to be a part of Nato meetings/drills back in Istanbul. Always wanted to be deployed abroad. no luck though.

    It is a joke as long as most countries sponge because they do not meet the agreed 2% defence spending, kick out the parasites and enjoy the salt.

    It's an anachronism of the Cold War. American Hegemony has allowed Western Europe to become weak both culturally and militarily. They'd do better and gain some much needed confidence sticking up for themselves. It also forces the US into some uncomfortable alliances with countries that don't share our strategic interests (hi Turkey). Lastly it puts us in conflict with Russia where we ought not to be. To be fair though, Russia's obnoxious behavior under President Putin is hardly helping the argument for the US withdrawing our presence in Europe.

    I'm all for alliances, but I'd like to be more discerning about with whom we enter them. The major English speaking nations of the former British Empire are generally reliable allies, as are the Japanese, Israelis and South Koreans. I'm also keen on increasing ties with India, though that's not quite as clear cut. Remaining tied into a mutual defense pact that is anything but mutual, with countries that have significantly different geopolitical goals is losing it's appeal more and more by the day.
