NATO: Joint Operations In the years following the Second World War, a new superpower began to emerge that had conflicting ideals with the United States and Western Europe, the Soviet Union. As a result of Soviet military might, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created in 1949 to counter and deter Soviet military aggression. The original treaty included 12 nations from North American and Western Europe, today, the number of member nations has grown to 29 with the three largest contributors being the United States, the United Kingdom, and France. NATO is a strategic military alliance with a specific mission set and through its 69 years of history, has utilized joint operations between nations to prevent war and when need be, used
In order for America to achieve its goal of becoming an imperialist nation they had conquered other countries economically, culturally, and with a strong military in the late 1800’s. Economically the U.S. had made advances in technology and began to get oversea territories. Culturally they had used the
Let's start with the fact that NATO was originally created not only for the purpose of containing the Soviet Union, but also it was used as an instrument for cooperation with key European countries and also to prevent the resurgence of Nazism and to ensure the growth of the political integration of Europe. By joining the United States and Europe, NATO has conducted
What path should the allied powers have gone down in order to create a world peace? Would the world consist of less poverty? How would world history and economy be different from how it is today? Nations opposing Adolf Hitler should have used collective security to potentially stop a world war. Three reasons why opposing nations should have used collective security is because if Hitler were appeased, then he would continue to imperialise other nations.
This was because they had quickly realized that the Soviets had separated themselves from them to spread communism. However, this all changed when both sides had to build a defense system around themselves by creating alliances. It was a way of proving that they were strong and if they were ever messed with they could easily destroy the other. On the United States side were Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, and the United Kingdom to form the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, also known as NATO. This treaty was created on April 4, 1949 and declared that if any of its members states were in danger, then all of the other member states must contribute to protecting that country.
The conception of such leads to an internal moral conflict where one compares and weighs the consequences of their fates. Conflicted with multiple impending fates, the individual has a choice to either embrace their uncertain fate, knowing they cannot prevent such, or reject their uncertain destiny, becoming negligent toward the possibilities of what is to come. When an individual is tasked with dealing with a future in which their lives are on the line, they will undergo the depiction of many futures. The result of which, will prompt the individual to either accept their fates, knowing that their fates are not preventable, or, challenge their futures, leading to the neglecting of what lies within the uncertain future; the futures born from ones
The concept of the “Atlantic Paradox” involves viewing the Atlantic Ocean as both a moat and a bridge between the continents. While physically separating America from Europe and Africa, the Atlantic Ocean has also served as a means to get from one place to another, bringing fortunes for some and terror for others. The Atlantic Paradox affected the peoples of Europe, Africa, and America first through being a barrier of safety, yet also helping to ignite the slave trade, introduce different cultures, and make Europeans wealthy while decimating native populations. During the 15th century, Europeans were able to gain the knowledge enabling them to sail the Atlantic Ocean, first around Africa and eventually, all the way to America. The Atlantic
There are many important events of International Relations that sparks my interest, however, the event that I am most curious about is the founding of the UN in 1945. The United Nations was negotiated in 1944 during the Dumbarton Oaks Conference among the ‘conquering’ nations: the Soviet Union, the UK, the US France and China and was officially formed in October 24, 1945. Through the use of the Structural Realism theory and the Neoliberalism theory, I plan to assess how this event was carried out. The Founding of the UN in 1945 can be explained through the use of the structural realism theory. The International Structure have always been an anarchy and an example of this is the UN.
The first point, freedom of seas was created to ensure the safety of all nations ships, it allowed ships to freely navigate oceans without restrictions, it prevented blockades, and of course things like unrestricted submarine warfare.The second point that was adopted was the reduction of all armies. Without large armies countries would not be as deadly toward one another, also if there were smaller armies people wouldn 't feel as though another nation were more powerful or threatened which would lead to less conflict and need for power. The last point that was maintained was the League of Nations. Wilson believed that the biggest part of creating peace within nations was by creating a congregation of leaders from different countries that would solve nations issues to prevent wars in the future. Many were opposed to this idea, thus resulting in it being rejected by the Senate, but today we had an organization called the United Nations which serves the same purpose as the League of Nations.
Other international strategic alliances were formed with the Northern Consortium of the United Kingdom (1988), the Australian Consortium of Higher Education in Malaysia (1994) and the British Consortium of Higher Education in Malaysia (1994) which enabled students to further their studies in a number of reputable universities in the UK and Australia. 1993 saw another alliance formed with the Dublin Business School, Ireland to conduct the ACCA professional accounting programme. A Partnership with Coventry University, United Kingdom (2004) has led to initiatives in producing world class
