Just a few years ago, NATO ( the North Atlantic Treaty Organization) was described by France’s President as brain dead. But thanks to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. NATO and the Transatlantic Alliance appear to be even more united.
For those of you who have read my second book, The Absent Superpower, recent events in Ukraine should not come as a surprise. Chapter 6, The Twilight War, lays out how Russian geography and demographic realities would dictate Russian aggression in its immediate periphery. This is not a justification of Moscow's aggression against its neighbor, but international watchers should not be feigning surprise.
