Net Assessment: Is NATO Showing its Age?

NATO final

Chris is on a beach somewhere soaking up the rays, so this week George Mason’s Trevor Thrall joins the podcast. The gang discusses NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg’s address to Congress on the 70th anniversary of the signing of the Washington Treaty. What is NATO’s mission 30 years after the fall of the Soviet Union? What does the addition of member states mean for the Alliance and for American national security? What effect has President Trump’s rhetoric regarding the responsibilities of other members and the possibility of the United States leaving the Organization had? Finally, Trevor warms Melanie’s heart with puppy stories and Bryan rejoices in UVA’s national title and the return of Game of Thrones.
