    Atlanticism, also known as Transatlanticism, is the belief in or support for a close relationship between the peoples and governments in Northern America and those in Europe. It seeks to maintain the security and prosperity of the participating countries and protect liberal democracy and the progressive values of an open society that unite them. The term dervies from the Atlantic Ocean, which is bordered by North America and Europe.

    Cball-NATO.png The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, commonly known by its abbreviation NATO, is an intergovernmental military alliance between 28 European countries and 2 North American countries. Established in the aftermath of World War II, the organization implements the North Atlantic Treaty which was signed on 4 April 1949. NATO serves the role of collective security, whereby its member states agree to mutual defense in response to an attack by any external party whether it be another country or a terrorist organization. The NATO headquarters are located in Brussels, Cball-Belgium.png Belgium. As of the year 2022, there are 30 member states within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the last of which to join was North Macedonia in March 2020. NATO currently recognizes Cball-BosniaHerzegovina.png Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cball-Georgia.png Georgia, Cball-Finland.png Finland, Cball-Sweden.png Sweden and Cball-Ukraine.png Ukraine as aspiring members.

    NATO had its origin with The Treaty of Brussels, a mutual defense treaty signed on 17 March 1948 by Cball-Belgium.png Belgium, Cball-Netherlands.png the Netherlands, File:Cball-lux.png Luxembourg, Cball-France.png France, and Cball-UK.png the UK against the threat of Cball-USSR.png Soviet expansion in Europe at the start of the Cold War. The same year, European leaders met with US defense, military, and diplomatic officials at the Pentagon, which resulted in the North Atlantic Treaty, which the United States signed on 4 April 1949. It included the five Treaty of Brussels states, as well as Cball-US.png the United States, Cball-Canada.png Canada, Cball-Portugal.png Portugal, Cball-Italy.png Italy, Cball-Norway.png Norway, Cball-Denmark.png Denmark, and Cball-Iceland.png Iceland. The members agreed that an armed attack against any of them in Europe or North America would be considered an attack against them all. The first NATO Secretary General, Lord Ismay, stated in 1949 that the organization's goal was "to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down".

    In September 1952, Exercise Mainbrace, the first major NATO maritime exercise began which brought together 200 ships and over 50,000 personnel to practice the defense of Denmark and Norway. This was followed by Exercise Grand Slam and Exercise Longstep, naval and amphibious exercises in the Mediterranean Sea and Italy. The same year Cball-Greece.png Greece and ROT.png Turkey joined NATO. During most of the Cold War, NATO's watch against the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact did not actually lead to direct military action, and NATO activity was mainly limited to various military exercises between member states.

    Cball-NATO.png NATO took an active role in the Yugoslav Wars. In 1999 NATO carried out an aerial bombing campaign codenamed Operation Allied Force against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia during the Kosovo War with the supposed purpose of bringing an end to Milosevic.png Slobodan Milošević's government's ethnic cleansing of Kosovo-Albanians. The air strikes lasted from 24 March 1999 to 10 June 1999.

    NATO countries attempted to gain authorization from Cball-UN.png the UN Security Council for military action, but were opposed by Cball-China.png China Jiangism.png and Cball-Russia.png Russia Yeltsin.png, who indicated that they would veto such a measure which led to NATO launching its aerial campaign without the UN's approval. The NATO bombings were supported by many prominent western politicians such as US President Clinton.png Bill Clinton, US Secretary of State Neconfem.png Madeleine Albright, Bidenism.png Joe Biden, Sanders.png Bernie Sanders, UK Prime Minister New Labourism.png Tony Blair, and German Chancellor Schröder.png Gerhard Schröder.

    By the end of the war, the Milošević regime had killed 1,500 to 2,131 combatants, most of whom were Kosovar Albanian civilians, with 8,676 killed or missing and some 848,000 expelled from Kosovo.

    The NATO bombing campaign killed about 1,000 members of the Yugoslav security forces in addition to between 489 and 528 civilians. The bombings also destroyed bridges, industrial plants, hospitals, schools, cultural monuments, private businesses as well as barracks and military installations.

    The Clinton Administration also received widespread condemnation for the bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade which killed 3 Chinese civilians.

    On 19 March 2011, a multi-state Cball-NATO.png NATO-led coalition began a military intervention in Cball-Libya.png Libya, to implement Cball-UN.png United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, in response to events during the First Libyan Civil War when armed Libyan rebels took to the streets to topple the regime of the dictator Gaddaficap.png Muammar Gaddafi. While the stated goal by the NATO coalition was to save Libyan civilians from a potential massacre by the Gaddafi regime the actual goal was regime change as Gaddafi (once a western ally in the war on terror) threatened western interests in western and northern Africa.

    On 17 March 2011 The UN Security Council, acting under the authority of Chapter VII of the UN Charter, approved a no-fly zone over Libya by a vote of ten in favor, zero against, and five abstentions, via United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973. The five abstentions were: Cball-Brazil.png Brazil Dilma.png, Cball-Russia.png Russia Medvedev.png, Cball-India.png India INC.png, Cball-China.png China Hujintao.pngWenJiabao.png, and Cball-Germany.png Germany Merkelism.png.

    The military interventions carried out by the different coalition member states went under different codenames Opération Harmattan by Cball-France.png France File:Le republic.png; Operation Ellamy by Cball-UK.png the UK Cameronism.png; Operation Mobile for Cball-Canada.png Canada CanadaConservative.png and Operation Odyssey Dawn for Cball-US.png the US Obamium.pngHillary.png. The NATO intervention was supported by many other countries such as Berlusconi.png Berlusconi's Cball-Italy.png Italy which shared its bases and intelligence with the allies, as well as Cball-Norway.png Norway Socneocon.png, Cball-Sweden.png Sweden ModPartyicon.png, Cball-Netherlands.png the Netherlands MarkRutte.png, ROT.png Turkey Erdoğanism.png, Cball-Qatar.png Qatar Thani.png, and Cball-UAE.png the UAE Maktoum.png, among others.

    The intervention did not employ foreign ground troops and all actions were taken from a distance to aid the rebels. American and British naval forces fired over 110 Tomahawk cruise missiles, while the French Air Force, British Royal Air Force, and Royal Canadian Air Force undertook sorties across Libya and a naval blockade by Coalition forces. French jets launched air strikes against Libyan Army tanks and vehicles. The fighting lasted for several months reaching its climax in the wake of the Battle of Sirte in late October 2011 when a NATO aircraft hit one of the Gaddafi loyalist's convoys forcing Muammar Gaddafi now deposed of any position of power into hiding in the drain pipe where he was found by the rebels and murdered. The estimated civilian cost of the 8-months long NATO-intervention in Libya range from 73 to 400+ civilian casualties.

    The fall of Muammar Gaddafi's regime would also have the consequence of creating a vast power vacuum for terrorist organizations like Cball-Isis.png ISIS and brutal warlords such as KhalifaHaftar.png Khalifa Haftar to take over much of Libya which set the stage for the 2nd Libyan civil war. Gaddafi's downfall also resulted in Libya becoming a destination and transit for millions of refugees from other African countries such as Cball-Eritrea.png Eritrea, Cball-Sudan.png Sudan, and Cball-Mali.png Mali which significantly worsened the European migrant crisis.
