NATO: According to the charter, we can not help the United States on Guam

NATO countries said that they are not required by law to support the United States in the event of a North Korean strike on Guam. This is the official representative of the North Atlantic military bloc in North America. The message of a NATO official refers to a German radio station Deutsche Welle.

At the same time, the NATO bureaucracy adds that they would be happy to provide military support to the United States on Guam, but the alliance’s statute states a clause stating that NATO members are not obliged to defend a territory that is not formally part of one or another NATO state within the zone of responsibility of the unit.

De jure, Guam is an unincorporated organized territory of the United States, not part of the United States. In other words, it is the overseas colony of the United States, in which part of the federal laws of the United States.

NATO: According to the charter, we can not help the United States on Guam

The NATO spokesman recalls that although article 5 of the NATO statute refers to the perception of an attack on a NATO member as an attack on the entire alliance, the letter 6 of the article should be taken into account. It states that this rule applies to the NATO countries of Europe, North America, Turkey and some islands of the North Atlantic area. The US Pacific zone is not part of the NATO collective defense zone.

The same NATO official adds that, despite the statute, it is unlikely that individual NATO members will refuse to help the United States if Washington "urges them to ask for such help." In general, there is a charter, and there is Washington ...

At the same time in the American media claim that Pyongyang deliberately called the goal of a hypothetical strike precisely Guam, "to sow doubts in the camp of NATO."

        For the sake of Iraq, it seems that no one changed anything in the NATO charter; those who wanted to help Bush helped, but NATO did not intervene there. And each has its own motives, Britain is the closest ally and helps Americans almost everywhere, the Poles, of course, work out loyalty, for support and loans, the Spaniards need grandmas, they do not force anyone.

      Hypocrites, damn it! They recalled the Charter. And why is Eunu Guam, if American bases are abruptly fifty kilometers from the border than Guam and 70 thousand of their own “warriors”.?

        Why Eunu Guam

        So, here, behind this:
        American media say that Pyongyang deliberately called Guam to be the target of the hypothetical blow, "in order to sow doubts about the NATO camp."
        Kim also professes the principle of "divide and conquer." laughing

    The charter is for old-timers since 1949. But the recruits of all three waves of NATO replenishment, in order to prove their loyalty, will now immediately declare their readiness to lay bones for the sake of the United States (but 2-3 people).

    That's right, NATO was created for other tasks on another battlefield. It’s not for the sake of a beggar of Korea to lay his head.
    So I don’t understand the enthusiasm for “Frightened”

    NATO threw the United States about Guam, but if Kim gets the west coast from the submarine he will be shitty for sure. Poroshenko will gladly help Brother and Guam protect their cyborgs.

    The DPRK behaves surprisingly. While the US administration is almost announcing a decision to use nuclear weapons in the cities and infrastructure of North Korea, to destroy its governments and part of the people (it’s unseen: "whoever didn’t hide, I’m not to blame"), the government and the general staff (or what there they have) of this country he says he will respond with a blow to ... the US naval base in Guam. Agree, an unequal or inadequate answer, even considering what the DPRK actually has in terms of means of delivery of various explosives. In general, all this fuss on the Far Eastern borders of Russia smells bad, or rather, it smells like a “good” agreement between a graduate of a closed Swiss school and an old besnessman, behind which there is an even older American plan to destabilize the Far East now. But in Europe it has long been realized that they are not playing cleanly here.

    So much for NATO! My hut is on the edge - I don't know anything! Like each fights for himself! And NATO money - more than half - gives the United States! They have great “mutual assistance” - I like it - keep it up! - it will be easier for us to defeat them!
