Colombia is the first country in Latin America to join NATO, in order to become it’s global military partner @ the border with Venezuela.
NATO’s independent institutional power and its elaborate trip-wire system can plummet everyone into a crisis, irrespective of member-state nuances never mind public opinion.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) alliance reached a partnership agreement with Colombia back in May 2017, just after a peace treaty was signed with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC)?
It is likely that the USA will soon turn to a Contra-style physical confrontation with the tenacious Chavistas in Venezuela, in which case an invasive maritime and even an occupying ground force presence (like in Syria) for the US military will be necessary.
When the Venezuelans fight back, this could be deemed to be an attack on a “NATO-partner and candidate member”. Vietnam 2 could then be fought by, not only the USA, but also by Britain, France, Belgium and of course the other NATO allies.
The partnership with Colombia will cooperate on the so-called global security areas for the elite, like cyber and maritime security, contra-terrorism and other links to crimes committed against the capitalist establishment.
Helping the NATO virus spreading, Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos earned a Nobel Peace Prize for his military/political contribution.
So Colombia’s membership was set up to join as a “global military partner”, which not necessarily means it will have to take part in military action, but on the other hand will be fully @ the service of the NATO headquarters in Brussels.
Other, so-called non-Atlantic global armed partners include Afghanistan, Australia, Iraq, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Mongolia, New Zealand and Pakistan.
The NATO announcement came just hours after the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) approved Colombia as a new member.
Being part of the OECD and NATO improves the image of Colombia and allows the dictatorial government to have much more power play on the international stage.
Colombian mercenaries are also taking part in the genocide against Yemen, while being contracted by the UAE military combat units.
