NATO rumblings: Will Trans-Atlantic Alliance survive?

Is Trump out to dismantle NATOOn the global strategic horizon, the US continues to be Europe's best bet, given their inherent overlapping values and interests, and the comfort derived from being historical partners. Lack of effective alternatives — structured differences with China and the limited global heft of other countries — limits Europe's strategic choices. While the expectations of a future return to normal remain high due to their mutual dependence, Europe now is more aware of its strategic gaps and the follies of outsourcing its security. Strategic manoeuvring in the form of strengthening the European pillar of NATO, therefore, appears to be the blueprint for the future

Europe can no longer rely on the United States for its security; it is up to us to guarantee European security.”

— Emmanuel Macron, President of France

We won’t let ourselves be pushed around time and again; we will act.”

— Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany

These recent impassioned statements by the respective EU leaders reflect the increasing European disillusionment towards the US policies shaping the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) — an alliance that has been the mainstay of European security for half a century.

The fraying of this trans-Atlantic partnership, amid unprecedented American criticism of its European allies disproportionate “burden sharing”, is a symptom of the emerging US trend of looking at global relationship primarily through an economic prism.

US President Donald Trump has gone on record to call the European Union (EU) a “trade foe” which has been “unfairly taking advantage of America”. With politics and security being intertwined, these developments have cast a shadow on the value based trans-Atlantic security relationship.

Meanwhile, European push-back, in the form of the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) that envisions Europe taking charge of its own defence, highlights a fundamental recalibration of the continent’s security mind-set.

Their emphasis on greater strategic autonomy, rooted in the fear of being forced to fend for themselves strikes at the very root of the post Second World War Western strategic consciousness.

As Europe and the US head towards unchartered territory, pertinent questions arise: What is the salience of NATO in the Trans-Atlantic partnership? What are the key emerging differences between the US and its European allies? And what are the core challenges that European countries face in their quest for greater strategic autonomy?

The Bible says that NATO will not survive, there must be a break down in the past relationship between Europe and America for Europe to move into the sphere of a new relationship with Russia as the Bible Predicts and has done so for over 2500yrs in Bible Prophecy that is continuing to be played out in Current World Events.  So yes, yet another article that highlights the issue of the challenge that is facing NATO.  This article highlights yet again the fulfilment of Bible Prophecy spoken 2500 years ago.  The Bible reveals that The EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice.  Along with this development we expect to see Russia become more involved in Europe with links to a combined army, yes NATO will come to an end and Russia will end up militarily linked to this EU ARMY.  But Russia will never join the EU as Putin will never give up Russia's sovereignty.

So WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ's Return.  

This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of "Magog". The Land of MagogThey are spoken of militarily as the "King of the North".  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.
