Polish edition: The North Atlantic Alliance is a thing of the past


NATO is now in conditions resembling a biological war. And in this environment, North Atlantic solidarity is undergoing serious trials.


This is written by the Polish edition of wPolityce.

The armed forces of Spain ask NATO to help in the fight against coronavirus. The United States refuses to participate in European military exercises. Two American aircraft carriers in the Pacific discovered COVID-19 infected. In these circumstances, the military of the NATO countries faces a difficult choice of priorities: either to continue to strengthen North Atlantic interests, or to sacrifice them for the sake of national security.

Coronavirus simulated one of the options for a future world war, in which biological (and certainly will be) applied weapon. The supply system and logistics were at stake, with an atmosphere of intimidation, uncertainty, and sometimes misinformation.

The only difference between a real war and the current situation is that there is no adversary who is fighting against the alliance.

In a pandemic and the ensuing economic crisis, it will be very difficult to require alliance members to spend two percent of the budget on military spending. This is especially true for the countries of southern Europe, which are most affected by the coronavirus.

In this situation in the USA, for sure, the opinion that the Europeans themselves should be engaged in the defense of the European continent will become increasingly popular.

In NATO countries, soon everyone will be for himself. The process of changing North Atlantic priorities to national ones is already beginning. In Europe, the wave of migration began to carry, among others, a biological threat. One of the first significant “bells and whistles” of NATO’s withdrawal from North Atlantic unity was the withdrawal of the British contingent from Iraq, which will now deal with internal issues in the kingdom.

Cutting down military budgets, focusing on internal issues to the detriment of common ones are striking features of national egoism, which are becoming more and more pronounced among NATO members.

All this suggests that after the COVID-19 pandemic, the North Atlantic Alliance will no longer be the same as before, the Polish author sums up.

      North Atlantic solidarity

      The only North Atlantic solidarity that was visible was to destroy Yugoslavia and attack Russia. In all other respects, they are ready to gnaw each other's throats.

      Let me disagree: Nata is more likely excreta past, moreover, it is contagious for the leaders of these countries. You won’t look at Stolnberg without tears, as he says Telegraph: Stoltenberg warned Moscow that the coronavirus did not undermine NATO alert. Original news InoTV

    The Poles must understand that NATO is a military bloc, not a biological dispensary and is not able to “drive microbes” around the world. And, national egoism, is an elementary manifestation of state thinking.

    The thing is that the NATO bloc has been preparing for decades to confront essentially virtual threats. Namely, super-aggressive Russia, which sleeps and sees how to take away from the Spanish peasant his half hectare of the land killed by intensive farming.

    In the case of real threats, they always had big problems. Moreover, coronavirus is not the first, or even the tenth case of NATO’s unpreparedness for reality.

    So the Poles should not be upset. The pandemic will end, and they can continue to play in their favorite sandbox of the confrontation of the Great Russian Threat

      Well it is out of date. Everyone knows that Ukraine is at the forefront. Then you understand, the existential will be more. Russians don’t buy Polish apples and don’t go for cheap strawberries. This is the root of all the problems of the world empire, from mozh to mozh

      It’s no longer “opposing”, no matter how much we mocked Polish political potential, but the Poles acted very, very cleverly by moving the buffer to the territory of Ukraine. Now Outskirts is a buffer country. And she will receive cuffs from two sides. And from Russia and from Europe. Poland, on the other hand, received its full use of cheap labor in the form of passport holders, with a trident. Well done.

    NATO was created to confront the Superpower. And now it is not needed. Everyone understands this. But the United States will never dissolve it, so that the impoverished population of eastern and central Europe would not be tempted to accidentally make friends with Russia.

    The North Atlantic Alliance is a thing of the past
    Something quickly the North Atlantic bazaar called "containment of Russia", "opposition to Russia" ... began to curtail belay And in it, for a "well-fed life", only Montenegro and Ukraine go.
    Yes, something that the NATO "tension belt" around Russia began to block the breath of Europe itself winked .
    By the way, how many countries, members of NATO, need time and money to restore modern national armed forces? what
    Oh, cheaper to rent Russian PMCs yes In turn, s.ukiny children (Bulgakov. "Dog Heart")

    The only difference between a real war and the current situation is that there is no adversary who is fighting against the alliance.
    There was still no war, and already half of the other half had been dumped with shit, stole everything that was possible and scored for help. But what if the real war?

    In NATO countries, soon everyone will be for himself. The process of changing North Atlantic priorities to national ones is already beginning.
    And only the USA was satisfied with these priorities in their struggle with the USSR / RF. There will be no NATO without the States. But the Europeans will surely create their own “defensive block", because still a strong prejudice against Russia. The basis of the block will be Germany and France. The United Kingdom can not be taken there. They also left the EU to untie the hands of the Yankees at the expense of competitors from Europe. And Russia needs to establish good neighborly relations with Europeans, conclude peace and cooperation agreements separately with each of the interested parties.
    And of course, observe your national interests without looking at their EUROPEAN values.

    For some reason, there is an adversary - Russia for some reason (?) Did not come to the war, which the Poles have been waging for many years with the support of all kinds of European parliaments, other structures and modestly calling it "hybrid." Guys under the blue flag with yellow stars, you can’t cope with a pandemic that does not cough up millions, but for now is just “having fun” and still want to fight with Russia? Oh well.

    The United States may lose half of NATO. They will expand further with non-monetary countries, it is already expensive and pointless for them. They may be reorganized under a different name. Leave only their military bases around the perimeter of Russia and China.
    Old Europeans will not oppose.

    Nothing will change. The Americans will whip, the Europeans will complain about the lack of money, this will be the end of it. Because NATO is primarily a political alliance. Europe needs the appearance of protection, and America needs an arms market and leverage.

    Coronovirus, this is a special operation. Remember the Sverdlovsk incident. Then the United States felt how the USSR would operate in a biowave. The Yankees didn’t arrange the result. But they infaed, the methods remained. Now, in the same scenario, the United States checked the Middle Kingdom. Only the virus was smarter, relatively that would not directly point to them as in Svedlovsk. There, the Canadian anthrax strain immediately showed where the tail grows from the dog. But they just forgot this time about globalization and that China is not Russia. Russia is certainly not the USSR, but all her hollow ve responded in the best tradition of the great old imperii.Kitaytsy at more or less right, but the virus is lost, or vypustili.I especially now that globalization is, the Yankees got back boomerang virus.

    This is not an alliance strength test. This is a demonstration of his rottenness, the foundations laid down by the very principle of the relations of "allies", always hiding behind each other during periods of war.
    Shown by the example of the Entente, in the First World War, when the "friends" were hiding for each other and all together for Russia.

    The author somehow kept silent about the unimportant fate of the "parasite" countries. The Baltic countries, Georgia, and Ukraine will have the hardest time because, apart from Russophobia, they produce nothing for NATO. And during the epidemic, Russophobia is not quoted in principle.
    To assume that changes are coming in NATO - to say nothing! NATO will seem to be a serious crisis
