It comes down to whether the West has the will to do what it takes to protect our interests. There are three fronts on the march looking to assert dominance…..Islam, China & Russia. Western countries have not even admitted that Islam is at war with us let along being willing to fully engage the jihadis. The powers that be continue to pretend China is our friend no matter how much they steal from us or prepare for war. There is no real leadership addressing our issues with Russia. Given the manner in which bureaucracies perpetuate their existence, I don’t see NATO going away anytime soon but that does not mean they will continue to be a unified force ready and willing to go to war.
