This is one of the main reasons I am absolutely against the further existence of NATO.
NATO was formed to fight the Cold War. The Cold War ended in 1989-90.
Bureaucratic creep, a search for a new mission, the love the failed EU project and political correctness that pushed NATO and the USA into the Balkans.
NATO now guarantees the “security” of 35+ countries. There will be many more such blunders in the future if the USA remains in NATO.
NATO has outlived its purpose and has resorted to bizarre tactics aiding our enemies.
Time to put an end to it.
