Afghanistan : new economic and politic
partners.

Multi-polar world : Now every country is a Partner even enemies.

Problems in NATO
https://geopoliticalfutures.com/nato-and-the-united-states-3/
Economic problems : the USA spend more
than the others members.
Focused to defend westerne Europe against
the soviets attacks (during the cold war).
Today : USSR has disappeared and except
the Ukrainian conflict, we don't have lots of
conflicts left in Europe.
=> Utility is questionable
Allows itself to intervene in other territories.
Would not be the abuse of power ?
NATO has served American interests since
1991 ?
