Yeah, the NATO is a defensive pact,
without single defensive action in 70 years of existence.
It is known for its honor and firm word
It bears responsibility for murders of millions of people after WW2.
They just destroyed international order by its animalistic aggression on Yugoslavia in 1999,
Nothing to blame, and nothing to see. Business as usual ....for a pack of hyenas.
It was intended to deter Soviet Russia, and what you just said is that it was a success.
Every alliance comes with a price tag that isn't money. But it kept WW3 from happening, and that's as big as a big, hairy deal gets. So, while you aren't totally wrong, between your exaggeration, and your failure or ignorance of what else was going on... your comment is bootless.
Let's go back further. Yugoslavia had been bilking the West for a generation. When the truth came out, things went downhill quickly. The emergence of ethnic violence was disappointing, but not exactly a surprise. The 'leaders' were incompetent, corrupt, thugs. Then there is the country you never blame, that was stirring the pot.
You see, we were worried the violence would spread. We could also see this settling into a violence that could last for centuries. Which was not good for anybody.
It took years to get the fighting to stop, but we finally got them to play nice...
