Wars won't end if we don't leave NATO

Success - Article sent! close

Congress ratified our United Nations membership in 1945 by a favorable vote of 89 senators with only two refusing to join.

NATO is a subsidiary of the United Nations, and Congress ratified NATO in 1945. By joining NATO, Congress transferred war powers under our Constitution to NATO in violation of our Constitution. This delegation of war power was never tested in our courts.

There are 453 countries in the world, and 193 are members of NATO under the charter of NATO. The Vatican is not considered a country.

Our Congress is never consulted about our involvement in these military engagements. Under the NATO charter, whenever any military needs are for a NATO member, other nations of NATO are expected to come to their military aid.

Our country has 90,000 troops in Afghanistan, whereas some other NATO countries have one or two observers as their contribution.

The wars of Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan were declared under this NATO charter. America's involvement in the worldwide military engagements will never be ended with this provision of the NATO charter as long as we agree to accept the role of inferior submission rather than not being a member of NATO.
