The NATO group has been making news lately……Trump says it is obsolete….Pence says they need to pay up…..and SecDef says that NATO will remain strong with the US in support…..all really good ideas but what is the real idea for NATO?
I have written a couple of posts on NATO recently……
I have written others and the search widget will get you to all of them if you are interested…
I bring all this up because of something I have read about a couple NATO members…..it appears that a couple of the members would feel better if they were defended by Russia….and you read that right! Russia!
Former Warsaw Pact member Bulgaria and former Yugoslav Republic Slovenia, which both joined NATO in 2004, say that they would feel safer being defended by the Russian military in the event of war than they would by NATO.
Perhaps more worryingly for NATO top brass are Turkey and Greece. Both joined the alliance in 1952 and have a history of being at odds with each other (to put it mildly) say that they too would feel safer being defended by Russia in the event of war.
Is this a fray showing in the fabric of NATO?
