Article 4 calls for members to,
together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the
territorial integrity, political independence, or security of
any" is threatened.
Article 5 considers an armed attack (real or
otherwise) against one or more members, an attack against all.
Collective self-defense is called for - perhaps in the wake of
the Paris incident all-out war on humanity, risking global
escalation if confrontation is provoked with Russia or China.
Unleashing US-led NATO's killing machine could
become the war to end all wars, risking world peace and
Republican presidential aspirant Marco Rubio
called for "invok(ing) (NATO's) Article 5," requiring all 28
Alliance nations to defend a member under (alleged) attack.
Will the almost certain Western and perhaps
Israeli-instigated Friday Paris false flag launch possible WW
III? Put nothing past America's lunatic fringe complicit with
fascists running Israel and other rogue partners.
On ABC's Sunday morning program, Rubio lied,
calling what happened in Paris,
"an act of war and an attack on one of our
NATO allies, and we should invoke Article 5 of the NATO
agreement, and bring everyone together to put together a
coalition to confront this challenge."
His rant followed French President Francois Hollande calling the incident
"an act of war," automatically
blaming ISIS despite no evidence proving it.
Fellow presidential aspirant
Jeb Bush on
Sunday urged "conven(ing) the North Atlantic Council to discuss"
invoking Article 5, adding:
"If that's what the French want, then, our
longest and strongest and most loyal ally over our entire
history, we should certainly consider it."
The only previous time Article 5 was invoked was
after the 9/11 attacks.
Bush irresponsibly called the Paris
"a threat to western civilization, and we
should consider it that way."
Obama's deputy national security advisor Ben
Rhodes called what happened "an act of war," a clear indication
of what's coming.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said
member states are ready to assist France.
"We stand strong and united in the fight against
terrorism," he blustered, a near declaration of all-out war.
Former NATO commander, retired Admiral James Stavridis, wrote a
Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) controlled
Foreign Policy op-ed, calling the Paris attacks,
act of war… waged by a terrorist army, a jihadist army, by Daesh,
"The Islamic State is an apocalyptic organization
overdue for eradication," he ranted - ignoring his full
knowledge of it being a US creation, used as proxy foot
Netanyahu took full advantage of the Paris
"(t)he time has come for countries to condemn
terrorism against us to the same degree that they condemn
terrorism everywhere else in the world."
"The terrorists who attack us have the same
murderous intent as those in Paris" - ignoring his all-out
terror war on Palestine and possible complicity with almost
certain state-sponsored terrorism against Parisian civilians.
Fascist Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya'alon
"This must be a time of reckoning," suggesting the
worst to come against Palestinian civilians, defenseless against
Israel's rampaging killing machine.
New York Times
editors headlined "What Will Come After Paris," saying Friday
"along with twin bombings in Beirut on the
day before and the downing of a Russian jetliner over the
Sinai Peninsula on Oct. 31, show a new phase in the Islamic
State's war against the West, a readiness to strike far
beyond areas it controls in Iraq, Syria, and increasingly,
"The challenge for threatened countries is huge,"
Times editors barely stopping short of urging greater US-led war
on humanity than already - never explaining ISIS is a US
creation, used to wage war on Syria, Iraq and other targeted
countries, heading for Russia if not stopped.
"France must take measures to protect its
citizens, as must the United States" and other countries, Times
editors blustered, ignoring what's most important to explain to
US-led horrors post-9/11 are well documented.
