NATO celebrated its 75th year of existence. The alliance was originally formed during the Cold War to keep Soviet troops at bay, while integrating Germany into Europe to prevent it from launching another war.

Since the fall of communism, NATO was used for nation building in Afghanistan, which ended in a disastrous failure. With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, the alliance has attempted to return to its original mission, but this time pushing leftist values against Russia. The AP says:

NATO marked 75 years of collective defense across Europe and North America, with its top diplomats vowing on Thursday to stay the course in Ukraine as better-armed Russian troops assert control on the battlefield.

The anniversary comes as the now 32-nation alliance weighs a plan to provide more predictable longer-term military support to Ukraine. Plagued by ammunition shortages, Ukraine this week lowered the military conscription age from 27 to 25 in an effort to replenish its depleted ranks and appealed for additional air defenses to counter Russian ballistic missile attacks.

NATO as an entity can be very powerful for American foreign policy, but can also be a money pit. Europeans, especially those in the West, cannot finance their armies properly despite being many times richer than Russia. The BBC continues:

During his speech, Mr Stoltenberg said Nato must be “doing something right”, as it had grown from 12 countries at its inception to 32. Its newest members Sweden and Finland abandoned their neutrality and joined the alliance as a result of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in response to the speech that relations between Russia and Nato had “slid to the level of direct confrontation” as the alliance was already “involved” in the conflict around Ukraine.

Inviting Ukraine to NATO is a dangerous position to admit publicly, as this will only strengthen the resolve of Russia to continue the war. So long as Russia and Ukraine are fighting, Ukraine will not be able to join the organization and drag America into another war.
