Randy Howell

There are many organizations with multinational parties involved but a major organization is NATO. NATO stands for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. It is put in place to safeguard the security and freedom of the members through military and political measurements. This organization has been around for many decades and will continue to be around for many to come. In the following ethical and cultural views will be examined, social responsibilities and how the stakeholders make unanimous agreements among the organization. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was established in 1949. In fact, the Alliance’s creation was part of a broader effort to serve three main purposes: deterring expansion of the Soviet Union, forbidding the revival of nationalist militarism in Europe through a strong North American presence on the continent, and to encourage integration of European politics. (NATO.int, 2014) NATO consists of 28 countries. When the organization originally started in 1949 it consisted of 12 founding members of the Alliance: Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States. After many years these countries joined as well: Greece and Turkey (1952), Germany (1955), Spain (1982), the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland (1999), Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia (2004), and Albania and Croatia (2009). (NATO.int, 2014) NATO is a political and military organization. The political aspect promotes democratic views and encourages cooperation on security and defense issues to prevent conflict and build trust in the process. The military aspect is committed to peaceful solutions to disputes. NATO has many cultural and ethical issues that…...

... CYBER SECURITY WITHOUT CYBER WAR U.S. Military vs. International Law Perspective A SHORT PAPER ASSIGNMENT TWO SUBMITTED TO: IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR CYB 5275: ENTERPRISE INFORMATION SECURITY BY CRAIG CANNON MELBOURNE, FLORIDA JANUARY 25TH 2013 In her article “Cyber Security without Cyber War”, Mary Ellen O’Connell does a brilliant job in giving the reader an overall view of the debate concerning which government should have primary responsibility of the internet when it comes to the legal authority of cyberspace. She begins the article by citing two major players in this debate: the U.S. Military with its rules and legislation vs. NATO and its international law. According to O’Connell, the USA feels that the military should have primary responsibility over the internet since it has the largest number of technical experts and legal authorities with respect to cyberspace than anyone else in the world. Many in the international community would disagree with allowing the US military to police the internet. They raise the question: What legal rules would be used to guide the military in its supervision of the internet. They believe that using international law is the best way to govern cyberspace usage. (Johnson, 1996) Still others favor the US military’s Cold War strategy of deterrence as a way of patrolling the internet. These that favor the US military option feel that......

...devastating in economical and social perspective. In the recent years however, most of the wars are internal meaning within the countries rather than against one another. To help promote peace and bring the world together the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created. NATO was established on April 4th 1949 and its headquarters are in Brussels, Belgium. When NATO was first founded it was shaped as a political association but that changed during the years. The entire idea of NATO was to protect all the Western European countries and the United States from a possible attack from the Soviet Union. On March 17, 1948 the Treaty of Brussels was signed by Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, and the United Kingdom. These are the first member states of the NATO that remain still very active in this organization. However, all these European countries needed the support and military supply of the United States thus immediate talks on its joining the organization started. The North Atlantic Treaty was signed on April 4, 1949 in Washington D.C. and despite the five mentioned state members and the United States, Canada, Portugal, Italy, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland also joined the organization. So, at the beginning NATO was created to bring a few countries together and be protected by the other enemy countries or political system. Communism, the Cold War, and the Korean War, all created a sense of insecurity and fear so developed countries wanted to stick together and fight......

Nato Expansion

...NATO Expansion Is NATO America’s New Tool POL 300 March 12, 2010 NATO Expansion Is NATO America’s New Tool After serving two tours one of them had a combined consecutive tour length of six and one half years, I never realized how close I was to NATO headquarters located in Brussels Belgium. After being deployed to Bosnia Herzegovina and realizing the role NATO was playing gave me a new found understanding of its mission. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization known as NATO was formed in response to the threat Western Democracies encountered from the spreading influence of communism in the post World War II era. Currently NATO has 28 nations who have aligned themselves in the organization, which has seen its share of good and bad times. During the immediate period up until the cold war era NATO was a driving force for peace efforts between countries and states. After the President Reagan’s historical proclamation on June 12, 1987 while speaking to the people in West Berlin, at the Brandenburg Gate. His speech is considered by many to be the beginning of the end of the Cold War and the fall of communism. The wall actually was torn down during November 9-11, 1989, reuniting families who were once separated by the wall. This event, even though a joyous occasion begin the slow demise of what NATO stood for. What would be the next step for NATO now that the Cold War was ending and the reality that communism’s spread was significantly diminished to a......

Nato and the Cold War

...militarily dominated by the United States. From its very beginning, NATO was not simply about defending the Allies against the Soviet threat but the alliance also became the institutionalization of the relationship between North America and Western Europe. In the words of NATO’s first Secretary General, Lord Ismay, the role of NATO during the Cold War was “to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down” (Wheatcroft, Geoffrey. June 15, 2011. The New York Times). During the Cold War years, NATO played a decisive and unrivalled role in Western Europe’s security architecture. The collapse of Communism and the disintegration of the Soviet Union in the period from 1989 to 1991 called into question NATO’s future role and even its continued existence. After the end of World War II, all involved countries, with no exception of being victorious or defeated, have started seeking of the prevention of a new disaster by reconstructing and maintaining the security and peace primarily in Europe. All huge and disastrous events (such as World Wars) which affected whole world were originated from the uncomfortable conditions and conflicts in the continent. Thus the main task was to settle a mechanism that would eliminate any emerging threat against the continental security and maintain the order and peace. For this purpose, in 1949 West European countries established the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in order to protect the member countries against any possible......

...after joining NATO even though he never showed any interest or willingness to do so. To a large extent, Roberson was heavily inclined towards supporting American interests at the expense of NATO affairs. Nonetheless, he took a firm position in the fight against terrorism especially after the September 11 terror attacks in the United States. As a matter of fact, conjuring the fifth article on mutual defense was a pragmatic step in the right direction for the NATO Secretary General. The fight against terrorism received a new boost during his reign. Some of his critics believed that he could have done better in his leadership style than he portrayed while at the helm of NATO.[2] NATO involvement in Afghanistan could be deemed as one of the failures of Lord Robertson because he permitted the action. The gross humanitarian crisis created by NATO involvement could not be equated to the skewed objectives of the move. On the other hand, Lord Robertson played a crucial role in the campaigns to keep Scotland under the United Kingdom. This followed attempts by some leaders in Scotland to separate the country from the United Kingdom. In reference to Robertson, the union is important for the economic development of Scotland. It can also be recalled that the decision to avail war assets to Turkey was a crucial move when Robertson was the Secretary General of NATO. Although the move was initially meant for a good purpose, Turkey was eventually ravaged by war courtesy of the NATO......

The Crisis of Crimea and Ukraine

...The Crisis of Crimea and Ukraine Key Lessons for President Obama from Presidents Reagan and Clinton [pic] SOURCE: AP/Greg Gibson President Bill Clinton reads a statement at the conclusion of the NATO 50th anniversary summit, Sunday April 25, 1999, in the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington. By Rudy deLeon and Aarthi Gunasekaran | May 14, 2014 In the past two months, the Crimea and Ukraine crisis has grown. Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula, the Ukrainian government and pro-Russian militia are engaged in a back and forth standoff in eastern Ukraine, and Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened that the conflict “essentially puts the nation on the brink of civil war.” The United States has been at the forefront of building international support for Ukraine, and the Obama administration continues to assemble Western support. However, efforts to reach a diplomatic settlement, or at least to reduce immediate tensions, are still in progress. As the Obama administration prepares its next steps in response to Russia in Ukraine, it can examine lessons from two other administrations in times of crisis. First, the Reagan administration’s reaction in 1983 to the Soviet downing of a civilian Korean airliner and its response to the terrorist attack against U.S. Marines on a peacekeeping mission in Lebanon. Second, the Clinton administration’s initiative to proactively expand and deepen partnerships in Europe during the 1990s through its Partnership for......

Humanitarian Intervention in Kosovo

...(2014461102) Introduction On 24th March 1999, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) launched a 78 day long air campaign Operation Allied Force (OAF) over former Yugoslavia, with the intent to stop the Milosevic regime from committing human rights abuses and ethnic cleansing of the Kosovo Albanians in Kosovo. This was a significant event with regards to humanitarian intervention in recent history as it was seen as a new international phenomenon. It was the first time that a group of states intervened without the authorization of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and it was also the first time that NATO used military force to prevent a humanitarian disaster. This event divided the world in their support for or against NATO’s humanitarian intervention in Kosovo. Critics of the intervention felt that NATO was breaking international law in acting without the authority of the UNSC and this could have jeopardized international order should any state or group of states decide to act on their own accord in intervening in a foreign territory in the future. Supporters of the intervention argue that the war gave human rights precedence over the rights of states. According to then Czech Republic President Vaclav Havel, even though NATO acted without a direct UN mandate for intervention, they have not acted out of license, aggressiveness or disrespect for international law. NATO has acted out of respect for the rights of humanity as they are articulated by our......

...membra NATO. La constituirea ei, ideea de baza a alianței, menținută timp de peste 50 de ani, era aceea a realizării unei apărări comune, credibile și eficiente. În acest sens, în articolul 5 al Tratatului se specifica: „Partile convin ca un atac armat impotriva uneia sau a mai multora dintre ele in Europa sau in America de Nord va fi considerat ca un atac impotriva tuturor si, in consecinta, daca se va produce un asemenea atac armat, fiecare dintre ele, exercitand dreptul sau individual sau colectiv la autoaparare, recunoscut de articolul 51 al Cartei Natiunilor Unite, va da asistenta Partii sau Partilor atacate, prin luarea in consecinta, individual si concertat cu celelalte parti, a acelor masuri ce vor fi considerate necesare, inclusiv folosirea fortei armate, pentru a restaura si a mentine securitatea zonei Nord-Atlantice.” Această frază s-a referit la început la cazul în care URSS ar fi lansat un atac împotriva aliațiilor europeni ai Statelor Unite, în urma căruia SUA ar fi trebuit să trateze Uniunea Sovietică ca și cum ar fi fost atacată ea însăși. Totuși temuta invazie sovietică din Europa nu a mai venit. În schimb, fraza a fost folosită pentru prima dată în istoria tratatului la 12 septembrie 2001 drept răspuns la Atentatele din 11 septembrie 2001.

Pakistan Negotiation

...upcoming meetings this week with top Pakistani government officials, your priority must be to negotiate the re-opening of the ground lines of communication (GLOC) from Pakistan to Afghanistan. It is critical that a favorable agreement be made prior to the NATO summit in Chicago in May, in which the 2014 withdrawal from Afghanistan will be a major point of discussion.

Assess the Extent to Which Two Polarised Blocs Had Formed in Europe by 1955.

...in April 1949 the US had formed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) which was a coalition of western countries to work together if a member felt threatened the rest would go to war to assist the needing member causing the polarization as now there was an actual threat to Stalin and the Soviet’s future as now if Germany was to become a member of NATO then the Soviet attempts at reuniting Germany such as the Berlin blockade will then end up beginning WW 3 as the NATO members would then be at war with USSR and the few satellite states that Stalin had created from the post war eastern Europe ruins. therefore causing a anti- American view on the eastern states and likewise with the western countries and polarizing the two sides against each other further and then ruining the relations between the blocs and depolarizing the blocs after they were starting to depolarize with the laid back communist approach to the border states to the west. Also part of the western rearmament and how it had caused polarization is found in the discussions about Germany and its reunification as factors from both sides had caused Germany’s entrance to the NATO coalition this includes the Berlin blockade and airlift the break out of the Korean war collapse of the European Defense Committee (EDC) also the East German Uprising (EGU), the collection of these events had caused the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) to Join the NATO as the EGU had revealed the Soviet approach and then led for their......

As Nato Continues to Expand, Russia Sees Little Cause for Joy

...As NATO continues to expand, Russia sees little cause for joy Nowadays, NATO is in the middle of a confused debate about its identity and role. In particularly about how it will affect relations with Russia, the security of Ukraine and the Baltic States, and the peaceful integration of Ukraine into Europe. More and more voices are being raised in the United States against this policy and therefore my claim is: NATO must not expand any further towards Eastern Europe. NATO stands for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. The fundamental role of NATO is to ensure the freedom and security of its member countries. It is one of the foundations on which the stability and security of the Euro-Atlantic area depends and it serves as an essential forum for consultations on matters affecting the security interests of all its members. Its first task is to defend against any threat of aggression. Russia has a very clear opinion on this debate. In the first place, NATO expansion is seen as a betrayal of unrealised promises made by the West in 1990-1991, and also as a sign that the West regards Russia not as an ally, but as a defeated enemy. Russians point out that Moscow agreed to withdraw troops from the former East Germany after NATO promised not to station its troops there. But now NATO has crossed over eastern Germany and ended up 500 miles closer to Russia, in Poland. In the second place, Russians fear that the inclusion of the Baltic States and Ukraine within NATO, will ultimately...
