And our agenda is?
Oil, pipelines, regional influence and ... well I wouldnt say “ strengthening” NATO so much as keeping it relevant as a military organization and using it to make it look like we are part of a “ coalition”
I think Syria ( and Afghanistan when it even makes the news) has woke up a lot of people to the scam claim we are “ democracy building”
For good or bad, our agenda is to protect our regional allies.
Egypt, Jordan, Israel, UAE, Saudi Arabia, etc.
The treats against them are Iran and Turkey. Yes, Turkey is on the threat list.
Russia is involved in the threat, due to the oil, pipeline and other regional influence including the Bosporus Strait, controlled by Turkey.
