“To save NATO must be destroyed,” writes Matthew Karnitsching, Politico’s chief European correspondent.
NATO needs a rebirth – writes in the Politico Matthew Karnitsching, the newspaper’s leading European correspondent. According to the author, NATO to save “Shall be destroyed.”
As he explains, at first it seems as if NATO is stronger than ever and the Madrid Summit “Historical” called by international leaders.
However, the author of Politico does not consider the fact that NATO has named Russia a direct threat to be a major breakthrough. Nor is it the case that Finland and Sweden will only be admitted to NATO, subject to Erdogan’s demands.
And that a “Sultan of Wannabe” Erdogan led Turkey and Orbán Hungary is also a member of NATO, according to the author
not just NATO “Liberal community of values”He starts, but makes fun of him.
A Politico employee is also critical of Germany and France because he says the Germans have been for too long “Fantasized” on strategic autonomy, on Europe “Get rid” from US security guarantees. Then, due to the threat of war in Ukraine, they changed their views.
According to the author, the European public is divided on the question of how much to oppose Putin – because their own governments have not acknowledged the extent of the threat.
The article writer sees Poland, the US, Britain and the Baltic states proving generous in the war, while other countries would have been much better. If Ukraine continues to weaken and push back because it cannot defend itself enough, it will be NATO’s responsibility, so does the author.
And that could challenge the future of NATO. A Politico employee believes that
due to the further reluctance of Europeans, the United States may indeed turn away from its European allies in the future,
so that China can focus on challenges.
Ultimately, Karnitsching suggests that NATO should be redefined so that it can continue the practice it preaches. For example, if some of its members do not adhere to democratic norms, they must be pushed out. And those who don’t write their own defenses are looking elsewhere for security guarantees.
