Your thoughts on NATO...

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk3sURDS4IA&ab_channel=SteveRangel]Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of Kingdom and pope

Like good Christians some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands, to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And till the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end

While we bullied, stole and bought a homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The Blue and Grey they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war was over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has its share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But its protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

The spirit was freedom and justice
And its keepers seemed generous and kind
Its leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
Now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watchin'

The cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand
We don't know how to mind our own busines
s
'Cause the whole world's got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner we can't pay the cost

'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watchin'

America, where are you now
Don't you care about your sons and daughters
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

America, where are you now
Don't you care about your sons and daughters
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

America...America...America...America...It was once a post ww2 western anti soviet org but adulterated after 1989 so it could became an aggessive not a defensive force. and the idea was to use it to encroach increasingly on once soviet dominated parts of the world, was cynical and wrong...

It (or the people responsible for its existence) doesnt much believe in the rule of law either. In my opinion it should have been abolished when the ussr became russia, fast forward to now, yes this is very much behind the latest crisis whatever else we think about the politics of that part of the world, and dont forget we now take the presence of nukes in our lives...very casually.

pipeline politics cant be forgotten either,

I think it’s beneficial
It served a purpose of opposing the Soviet Union

And it continues to give its members some assurance for their national security

I don’t support military aggression like in Afghanistan but overall I support NATO

People say NATO is antagonizing Russia because countries close up it are joining
But those countries are joining because they have been invaded or influenced by Russia, don’t want that anymore and are joining NATO to protect themselves

@PicturesOfABetterTomorrow Sieg Heil, Comrade.
@TheOneyouwerewarnedabout So you support the invading nation of Russia. Good to know.
@LordShadowfire I dont and never will support nato
I think it’s hypocritical for us, we, the western countries.
Who have been invading countries for 40 years spreading democracy. And adding nato allies to the team.. all based on lies..

(Still waiting for a single WMD in Iraq)

as soon as someone else does it we’re outraged and very outspoken..
Obama lost crimea this same way. Trying to fuck russias energy and put a big fat US base in Ukraine..

On paper is seems like a good idea. In reality, it's a bunch of whiny pain in the ass countries who are looking for the US to protect them. Trump was 100% right when he reprimanded them. I recall the left becoming unhinged.

It should be taken further. In my opinion, all the countries involved need to pony up 100% of outstanding contributions to the effort before another dime is contributed by the US. If that can't happen, time to pull out and leave them to defend themselves.

@KlonB I suggest reconsidering your life choices, or at the very least your "professional" choices. Sooner than later Putin won't have a single cent to pay for your trolling services.

United states should be kicked out of NATO

@doong United States [b]is[/b] NATO.
It should be on the dustbin of history.

Having studied history going back the the 1700s such alliances tend to just make wars bigger when they do kick off.
