70 Years of NATO

Last month Czech Republic celebrated 20 years in NATO but last week NATO turned 70.

I'm sure that Russia isn't exactly happy that NATO is still going strong.  It's ironic that not only former Warsaw Pact countries like Czechland & Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland are NATO members, but so are the Baltic countries which used to be part of the Soviet Union.

It looks like North Macedonia will probably be the next country to join.  Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, and Ukraine are all potential members as well.

Here are a couple of short videos I found out on YouTube about NATO and the 70th anniversary.

The second video has comments from Tomáš Petříček, the Czech Minister of Foreign Affairs.


Here's a 2015 video about how powerful NATO is.  It's even more powerful now.

Update: North Macedonia joined in 2020 becoming the 30th NATO member.
