NATO Concedes It Has No Purpose, But Promises to 'Find Ways to Stay in Business'

A rare moment of honesty provides NATO with much-needed psychological relief

Like a radioactive McDonald's hormone-patty hamburger, NATO refuses to naturally biodegrade, even after being abandoned on a park bench for 25 years.

The glorious "defensive" alliance can no longer deny the obvious: Even the most accomplished public relations representatives from patriotic corporations such as Raytheon and Lockheed Martin are unable to think up a new "strategic concept" for NATO. This is fatal.

Yes. A truly sad day for western arms dealers and their well-groomed stable of degenerate academics. Even NATO's fancy-pants think tank, The Atlantic Council, can't conjure up enough bamboozling academic abstractions to conceal reality:

All terrible things must come to an end. That's physics.
All terrible things must come to an end. That's physics.

But don't cry yourself to sleep, Mr. Depleted Uranium Wholesaler! NATO will still find a way to justify its existence, even if it has to bomb the same defenseless brown people twice:

Only after Barack Obama became US president in 2009 did the allies feel comfortable about revising NATO’s basic strategic document. In December 2010, the United States and its allies released a new Strategic Concept at a NATO summit in Lisbon, Portugal.

That same dynamic, a willingness to defend allies but reluctance to establish NATO’s strategic posture, seems likely to work again as long as Trump is in the White House. The Alliance will find ways to stay in business and undoubtedly will try to be responsive to the US demand for more defense spending and more anti-terrorism efforts.

We like it when you talk dirty.
