China’s military might has now become a top issue for NATO

NATO, the 29-member military alliance, was set up 70 years ago to counter the threat posed by the-then Soviet Union.

But now, another rising military power is in its sights: China.

As heads of state and government gather in the U.K. Tuesday for a two-day meeting of the alliance, shifting geopolitical relationships and emerging challenges will be in focus for the fractious group. Previous meetings have been dominated by the alliance’s old foe Russia, following Moscow’s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

However, many experts and leaders within the group think the alliance should now be focusing on new and emerging military powers, like China.

    No doubt about it. It is already China! Compared to Russia, China dwarfs it in population, size of military, and wealth. While Russia considers itself an adversary of the U.S.A. (our nation that by itself, holds NATO together), and are offended by Trump that Euro nations that could chip in their 2% to keep NATO afloat. Since Trump reviewed NATO’s weak existence, he focused upon their constant indebtedness to NATO’s support. The leaders of most Euro nations who are NATO members resent “outsider to politics” Trump, because in a second, he can cite NATO’s marginal existence and failure of its EURO nations to at least make the 2% designated as each’s financial requirement to maintain NATO. They owe, they don’t pay NATO on a punctual basis, and resent very much that Trump knows they’re dead-beats who expect someone—anyone to pay-up but themselves. All they want is to dress up, make speeches at gourmet dinners, and toast each other. Then, a man like Trump showed up, and cited them as dead-beats to the cause of preparedness of NATO. They detest being told, especially by Trump who is ,according to them, not as cultured to address the rest of them as very late payers, if paying at all.So much for NATO.
