NATO's "Unified Front" At Breaking Point | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

NATO's "Unified Front" At Breaking Point

Authored by Danny Sjursen via The Future of Freedom Foundation,

Last month, a Turkish warship came one step away from firing missiles at a French naval vessel off the coast of Libya. In response, Paris suspended its involvement in Operation Sea Guardian — a multinational maritime effort to provide security in the Mediterranean Sea and halt the arms trafficking fueling Libya’s ongoing civil war. Initially, only eight member states — notably excluding both the U.S. and U.K. — supported France’s official complaint. This was only the latest incident in the increasingly frequent — and exceedingly awkward — tensions between several of Washington’s core North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies.

Indeed, from South America to East Asia, NATO members stand divided over many critical foreign policy issues of the moment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NATO, as an entity, no longer has any clear direction, and is seeing member nations going after other member NATO members, as Turkey is with Greece, concerning Mediterranean drilling rights, and appears to be one step away from implosion.
