Most members of NATO try to avoid going to war hmmm? They say that yes, but the hard cold facts say otherwise.
Since the inception of NATO, can you tell me the percentage, of all the wars fought since, that involved NATO?
I am a citizen of a NATO country, and I am not trying to justify or negate the legitimacy of their reasons for doing so, but the facts speak a million
NATO, for whatever reason, is systematically removing any regime they feel are threat to the west, whilst positioning themselves favorably around the
borders of Russia and China. Both these conditions need to be met for a war to be fought by NATO, either overtly or covertly. Look at a map, look at
shipping routes (namely Suez) and supply routes and supplies (oil) that might be adversely affected, should a more direct resumption of the cold war
ensue. What nations could really hurt the west if they declared alligience to Russia and China? Then measure that answer against what Nations regimes
have been changed or are about to be changed, and you will have an answer.
The question is why? What do they know, that we do not? Why do Russia and China ignore human rights abuses from regimes that are favourable to their
own, whilst slating anyone else, who is not? Why are Russia and China not taking Syria and Iran in hand, when they are under their realm of influence?
Is it a coincidence that mleaders of both countries were big on communism? And big players in their respective fileds in upholding communism? Who are
these nation states that keep attacking the west in cyber attacks? Iran? I don't think so....
It's funny that Russia and China now claim to be democracy's, when their politcal stances and actions suggest otherwise.
Mine own personal opinion, is that they have both been playing the 'good child', whilst waiting for an oppurtune moment for something big. Ofcourse
NATO and it's members know something, why else insist upon this missile defence shield going up, and aggravating the aformentioned nations, when those
nations are now 'good guys'? They just aren't announcing it to us just yet.
