Wednesday on Fox News Channels The Daily Briefing, Sen Marco Rubio (R-FL) said the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was still a good idea, but it has to be modernized.
When asked about President Donald Trumps criticism of the alliance, Rubio said, First of all, NATO is still a good idea. It has to be modernized, so it has a new purpose and a new meaning in the 21st century. I continue to believe and support NATO.

“Mend it, don’t end it”
Ridiculous. NATO was a good idea after WWII and before the fall of the Soviet Union. But it is a stupid idea, now. Who exactly is the threat to Western Europe, now? NATO is an alliance without a purpose other than to enrich arms dealers, a relic that should be discarded yesterday.
Especially as long as Turkey remains a member.
NATO member, Turkey.
Against what imaginary enemy?
There hasn’t been a threat to warrant the necessity of NATO for 25 years.
Rubio voted to give away the country to fraudulently documented foreigners and assisted the arming of jihadists in Syria and Libya.
He needs to be replaced by a patriot.
It’s outdated, and if Turkey can not be ejected then it is in America’s best interest to withdraw and draw up something new on our terms.
Give it enough of a reform attemp to show the delinquent members have no interest in catching up their debt, then pull the plug.
Kinda like “The Ford Mustang is still a good idea, but it has to be modernized”
i.e. a completely new car that shared only the name with the original.
[NATO is an alliance without a purpose other than to enrich arms dealers, a relic that should be discarded yesterday.]
Maybe there hasn’t been an enemy for 25 years because of NATO?
It served it’s purpose. Time to end it. Or at least our part in it.
They can increase their spending whether or not NATO exists.
Gen. Jesus Vargas had great parties attended by really cute Asian girls.
There is no Warsaw pact, our “allies” are not carrying their weight, are no longer free countries, and are intent on demographic suicide.
There is nothing to defend there. Time to leave.
Rubio is a dunce. He must be benefiting from this somehow, or else he wouldn’t be saying this.
Draw up something new with whom?
Simplicity and Continuity!
But the world don’t buy that...not ever...the founding fodders, and on and on....it works...$$$$
The Turks are fierce and well-armed (thanks to arms merchants!!) but in my opinion not able to engage and then occupy territory. Greece, maybe, and there is some antipathy there but do you think they are really a threat to others??
LOL, we should form an alliance with Poland and the other Central European countries, hey the name “Warsaw Pact” is available, heh heh.
