"Resistance to NATO" section[edit]

I removed a section titled "Resistance to NATO" today because it read like a criticism section and a summary of its source reference "natoprotest.org". Here's the text:

Semi-protected edit request on 5 September 2014[edit]

The secretary general of Nato is now "Jens Stoltenberg" and not the previous "Anders Fogh Rasmussen". Please change this. Rypdalen (talk) 16:33, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, but the official change of office has not yet taken place. Rasmussen will step down as of September 30, 2014 with his successor taking office as of October 1. Mediatech492 (talk) 17:55, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 18 September 2014[edit]

NATO is not a Military Alliance - NATO is a Political Alliance. (Big, very Big, Huge Difference)

Criticism[edit]

This article should include its among critics, "Turks who want to go to war Greece" and "Greeks who want to go to war with Turkey". The point being can something not be said for NATO keeping the peace in Europe (among its member states) for the last seventy years?

NATO, the EU, and Non-NATO EU Nations[edit]

Non-NATO member nations of the EU have a sui generis partnership relationship with NATO distinct from and more significant than the other Partnership for Peace nations. The EU itself is a significant and multifaceted partner of NATO. The two organizations have an extensive web of bilateral obligations and cooperations. [1] [2]

Sweden and Finland are approaching de facto NATO membership. The evolution of this relationship has accelerated since the Ukraine War. Opinion polls in both countries now favor official NATO membership. [3] NATO distinguishes Sweden's relationship as unparalleled among partners, "Sweden (has) reached a new level of partnership, which has no parallels among partner states." [4] Russia has recognized the acceleration of ties between Sweden, Finland and NATO and warned against official membership. [5]

Austria has increased its ties to NATO over and above those that exist through the EU-NATO treaties as well as Austria's Partnership for Peace obligations. [6] [7] 7o62x39 (talk) 15:22, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
