<<Is tearing apart the EU with Brexit likely to STRENGTHEN NATO?>>

The strategic mission of NATO was completed in 1991 with the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact and the withdrawal of Russian forces from Europe.

The United States should have withdrawn our forces from NATO and left the Europeans to look after their own welfare.

Instead we have used NATO to threaten Russia the same way the Soviet Union threatened western Europe.

NATO has evolved into the military arm of the European Union, which has in turn become the social, political and economic arm of German power over all of Europe ----- greater sway over Europe than Kaiser Wilhelm or Hitler has at their greatest reach during WWI or WWII.

That is creating the next European war between Russia and Germany, and we have no business in getting that started.
