NATO For the 21st Century: Ensuring Liberal Democracy In Europe
Can NATO reform itself to refocus its mission back toward Europe?


"The Parties to this Treaty reaffirm their faith in the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and their desire to live in peace with all peoples and all governments.
They are determined to safeguard the freedom, common heritage and civilisation of their peoples, founded on the principles of democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law. They seek to promote stability and well-being in the North Atlantic area.
They are resolved to unite their efforts for collective defence and for the preservation of peace and security." Washington Treaty.

So to answer this question, reforming and "re"focusing on Europe was never intended, and therefore never necessary.

But instead of this loaded question, what's the deal with Hanson's obsession on geography, race and ethnicity? See his book that has been accused of racism, and with the title of "Mexifornia" it may become obvious why.

And like the deceit of this entire website putting itself as an unbiased, objective forum, this question was crafted in a way to further a conservative agenda.
