    That’s partly right: We have treaties with good allies to intervene if they are attacked, to defend them; and they agree to do the same for us. The NATO Treaty, for one good example, was triggered for the first time when the U.S. was attacked on September 11, 2011 — requiring all other NATO members to put their military up to help defend the U.S.

    Under those treaties, England didn’t need a declaration of war to come to our aid.

    Why do you regard that as sinister?

    Nowhere did I say that I thought it was sinister…I said it was interesting stuff. Not a lot of people know this information, myself included before I saw this gentleman’s post, watched the video and reblogged it.
    I find information such as you provided about the NATO treaty and England interesting as well, but definitely not sinister.
