Major Decisions At NATO Conference Overshadowed by Leaders' Gossip
"Something big and important happened at the recent North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) conference in London and, no, it was not Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, French President Macron, Princess Anne and British PM Johnson caught gossping about US President Trump on an open mic. The highly respected organization NATO Watch reports that there were a number of consequential outcomes of the conference, notable among them a commitment to increase military spending across Europe and in Canada by a staggering $400 billion.
NATO Watch has documented other worrisome new NATO inititiaves. For the first time ever, NATO has acknowledged outer-space as what it calls the 'fifth domain' of warfare. The other warfare domains are land, air, sea and cyberspace. Another worrying development is that NATO is backing down from a commitment to nuclear non-proliferation, arms control, and the eventual elimination of nuclear weapons..."
NATO Is A Threat To The Climate
"...Rapidly reducing carbon emissions is impossible with rising militarism and military spending. One more reason to Say No To NATO! Canada should get out of NATO!"
While Press and Public Focus on Iran, US Military Prepares For War With Russia
"During the height of tensions with Iran last year, the United States conducted an unprecedented series of war games. Over five months, from May until the end of September, 93 separate military exercises were held, with forces operating in, above and around 29 countries. While the conventional view is one of Russian advantage, the new figures show that the US and its European partners far outstrip Moscow.
These operations and exercises, then NATO Commander, Army Gen Curtis Scaparrotti told Congress last Spring, were meant to 'introduce operational unpredictability to our adversaries.' The question is: at what cost? Or more concretely, in putting two sides on a path where escalating military exercises and intermingling of forces increases tensions while also providing more and more opportunities for miscalculation..."

Where Trudeau is hiding
Oh I can answer that. The great progressive leader is slumming up to countries who ban and punish homosexuality in order to win is a coveted seat at the UN security council.
I think he's somewhere shaking hands with the PM of Iran too, you know the country that tried to hide the fact it fucked up and murdered a bunch of Canadians.
Ends justify the means.

Defender 2020: Largest Mobilization of NATO Troops Against Russia in 25 Years
"The largest deployment of troops across the Atlantic in 25 years entered its main phase last weekend within the framework of the Defender Europe 2020 exercise. The scale of NATO's provocative military exercise underscore how far advanced the preparations for war are 75 years after the end of World War II. The United States and 18 other countries [Naturally, including Canada!] are deploying large contingents of troops from America and Western allies to the Russian border within a short period of time. In total, around 37,000 soldiers are participating in the exercise, which is to continue until June..."
NATO Defender Europe
"Though not well publicized here in Canada, Canada will participate in the NATO Defender Europe 2020 war manoeuvres held in Europe between January 12 through July 10. Science for Peace, which counts as its members the late Ursula Franklin and John Polyani, unreservedly oppose this provocative and regressive recapitulation of the brutal 20th century.
In addition to NATO's acceptance of a nuclear weapons first strike strategy, a crime against peace under international law, a military strategy permitting the use of nuclear weapons is based on the Cold War belief that a nuclear war is winnable and is an atrocious gamble with human survival. In addition, the military is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases and this poses two threats of human extinction, rendering this era the most dangerous and precarious in human history.
Yet the Government of Canada has acceded to NATO policies without any dissent by elected representatives. No NATO countries have signed the UN Treaty on the Prevention of Nuclear Weapons, leading to the elimination of all nuclear weapons. Superseding NATO and individual nation states is the UN Charter, which defines a war of aggression as the supreme crime as it encompasses all other crimes. The UN Charter is a binding international agreement..."
