The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was developed many years ago, signed on April 4 1949 to be exact, and is still in force today. It has since been ratified multiple times to accede more nations and to develop wording relating to present day scenarios. NATO’s counter by Russia and its supporting Communist countries was the Warsaw Pact signed May 14 1955 that subsequently ended July 1st 1991. The removal of the Berlin Wall was the predecessor to the disintegration of the Warsaw Pact.
NATO was created after WWII to create world order and prevent another world war. The more countries that joined NATO’s world union, referred to as the Alliance by NATO, the less of a chance for conflict, and an individual country’s ability to have a military uprising similar to Hitler’s Germany. As positive as that may sound the underlying theme when you read the treaty is that if you did not join, then the country was anti-democratic and viewed as an aggressor. Further enhancing joining NATO were the strong-arming tactics implied by the US government. In essence, either join or you can have the same destruction that Japan’s Hiroshima and Nagasaki faced towards the end of WWII. No other country possessed nuclear weapons at that time.
Per NATO, “The fundamental purpose of NATO’s nuclear capability is to preserve peace, prevent coercion, and deter aggression. As long as nuclear weapons exist, NATO will remain a nuclear alliance.” (http://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/official_texts_133169.htm)
The link, directly from NATO, is a very good indication describing how the world actually functions. Part of the NATO Alliance requirement is to spend a set amount, usually between 2 and 20% of GDP, on military offense and defense (section 34 of the article).
Before people complain and want no war or a cease to arms they must understand that the world lives and thrives on armament, and will continue as such forevermore, or until the world destroys itself. The inevitable end will be World War Nuclear (WWN/WWIII) where the Alliance fights the former Warsaw Pact countries, as well as the Middle East. WWN/WWIII can be also recognized as the largest religious war ever fought with a discernable finite end.
Peace cannot exist within the confines of the human mind. The mind is, by nature, skewed for violence as are all animals on this planet. Do not blame the current, former, and future American presidents nor can you blame other world leaders. Protesting and the sort is futile. Learning how the world works will allow you to better understand the world and make your day possibly less miserable since none of it is at all under your control.
The news you watch or read is skewed and does not describe any of the statements in the NATO article accurately. The misreporting of the news is not a conspiracy. Truth has lost its place in society and no longer matters. I suppose truth may not have ever mattered but it seemed to be pursued more often in the past. This next statement is not to be taken religiously and the result is equal to all. The end of days will arrive when most of the world believes the anti-truth. You will only know the anti-truth after it has happened and does not involve second comings or deities. Believing the anti-truth will devour the world within itself.
When will this happen? I do not know. It can be 2, 4, 10, or 100 years from now. In my opinion, it will happen when Mars is inhabited, but you never know. Everything is based on irrational and emotional human decisions with inevitable repercussions that are not usually good and always negative.
