NATO and the Geopolitics of the Dinosaurs

The last survivor of the Cold War [1]

By Augusto Zamora R. (for Safe Democracy)

Augusto Zamora R. says that even though no government will admit it, there are two things that continue maintaining the life of NATO: one, to serve the strategic interests of Washington in Europe, and two, to continue existing as the vehicle to combat the Russian enemy. In this context, the European Union presents a divide between the pro-European Europe and pro-NATO Europe. The Soviet Union disappeared as did the Warsaw Pact, thus it would be logical for NATO to do the same. But the opposite happened. The question is: What purpose can the Atlantic Organization have today?
