Many people have claimed that since the Cold War is over that we do not need NATO anymore. They say that it is obsolete since the Soviet Union does not exist anymore. I think we still need NATO. I think it serves as a deterrent to other countries that might try and stir up trouble in Europe. This of course really relates to Russia. I think that is partially why Russia tried their hardest to make sure they could not directly connected to the Ukraine issues. Any other opinions? Do we need NATO?
