NATO’s mandate should be expanded to counteract the information warfare tactics that it’s historic enemies have now taken up. This should include subverting the populations of enemy countries with access to unfiltered internet information and funding for the poor in those countries.
We are the most successful nation in the history of the world. It’s time we started acting like it.
As an aside, I wasn’t aware that agreeing or disagreeing was possible for established historical facts. I mean, either it was on this date, or it wasn’t. If it wasn’t on this date, then what does that say about the reliability of the news source in question? That they can’t even get established facts correct? (Truman Library Record)
Comment on Countable website. Recycled for the question “Should the US stay in NATO?” At least that one was really a question.
President Trump arrives today at the annual NATO summit in Brussels fixated on the fact that most members are falling short of defense spending targets, going so far as to declare that the current state of affairs “just doesn’t work” for the U.S.Countable, By the Numbers: NATO Defense Spending
I don’t support anything the Orange Hate-Monkey (OHM) does, even when what he does happens to coincide with the things I think should be done. They should be done, just by someone else.
NATO? I was never a fan of NATO until Vladimir Putin and his OHM puppet decided they wanted to destroy it. Now, I’m thinking I love it. I think NATO should go cyber and cripple the online infrastructure of Russia until they get rid of Putin and hand back Crimea. I think we can do that much more cheaply than building tanks and planes and training soldiers, the things that NATO currently does.
Which is why Putin has adopted this information warfare strategy himself. Because it does less damage to the customers he hopes to milk after he destroys the US alliance against Russia. So we Americans and our allies should conduct information warfare on him instead of letting ourselves be trolled like the OHM is doing now. This strategy worked for the Moon race, why wouldn’t it work now?
