NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) was established on April 4th, 1949. NATO is basically a defense alliance which was established in 1949 to provide security to the European states against Communist aggression.

The history of NATO dates back to September 1948 when the Brussels Treaty powers decided to create Western Union Defense Organization. Later on, USA and Canada agreed to join the military alliance and in 1949 NATO was formed. All the member states are bound to protect any member against attack. North Atlantic Council is the top policy-making body of NATO. Each member nation is represented on this council.

The military Committee of NATO resembles Joint Chiefs of Staff. France withdrew from NATO in 1967. After the dismemberment of USSR in December 1991 many changes have taken place in NATO. Several East European countries have joined it due to the collapse of WARSAW Pact.

New member inclusions are down with the consent of all existing members. By the end of 1995, 27 nations including Russia and other former Soviet Republics had joined with NATO in the Partnership for Peace (PFP) which offered joint military exercises, peacekeeping missions and information exchange. In December 1995, NATO assisted multinational force to keep peace in Bosnia Herzegovina.

Good answer as to the history of NATO. As you stated, it was created to counter the threat of communist expansion into western Europe. That threat no longer exists, which is why NATO needs to be abandoned. There are few threats to peace so dangerous as a large standing army which has no further purpose for existence. Such armies will eventually go looking for trouble in order to justify their existence and expense. NATO involvement in Kosovo was one example of illegal activity conducted by NATO. Such operations violated the NATO charter by conducting offensive operations against, and within the borders of, a non-NATO nation which had attacked no NATO members.

NATO is the abbreviation for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. It is a military alliance of twenty six countries who have agreed to help each other in case of an attack from a foreign power. It is a kind of mutual protection pact, however that term is archaic. NATO was founded in 1949 a little after the end of the Second World War. The members of NATO include Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, United Kingdom, United States, Greece, Turkey, Germany, Spain, Czech Republic, Hungry, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

NATO was primarily geared to deal with the eventuality of war with the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Over the years NATO has had its share of problems with France withdrawing from the military front and remaining a part of the political façade only.
