The North Atlantic Treaty
Washington D.C. - 4 April 1949
The Parties to this Treaty reaffirm their faith in the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and their desire to live in peace with all peoples and all governments.
They are determined to safeguard the freedom, common heritage and civilization of their peoples, founded on the principles of democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law. They seek to promote stability and well-being in the North Atlantic area.
They are resolved to unite their efforts for collective defense and for the preservation of peace and security. They therefore agree to this North Atlantic Treaty :

NATO sounds better than NAO or NAT, obviously!

NATO really doesn't have a connection to the US's War on Terror, because it opposes it.

we all heard of NATO. ………………officially THEY claim its means: North Atlantic Treaty Organisation……………………lets examine that sentence.
my english treacher is a bit of conspiracy theorist.
he always comes up with unsual theories behind government activities.
just think about that for a minute: why say "Treaty Organisation"
treay is a treaty. it is not an organisation
. a treaty establishes an organisation.
so, why not say North Atlanic Defence treaty,
North Atlantic Treaty,
North Atlantic Organisation?
why must it be North Atlantic "Treaty" Organisation.
the name doesnt make sense. there is something wrong with the sentence.
yes ok we know there was a signiture there. so what. why tell us about it?
would it not have been better to simply say NADO - North Atlantic Defence Organisation?
once have think about it, we see that that "T" does not really stand for "Treaty".
