    NATO helped create the refugee crisis their regime changes bring devastation abroad and at home. Apart from making insecure people feel safe, why do we need them?

    Seriously that is the only argument pro NATO people have. We need NATO or the Russians will invade!

    Has anyone read Hillary's leaked speeches to Goldman Sachs? she talks a lot about Syria and how Russia are messing up their regime change.

    I consider this the greater good. Surely it's illegal to arm militants, many who are not native to Syria to overthrow a government?

    We should be siding with Russia and Assad, not supporting the destruction of Syria and in turn the destruction of Europe.

    Putin was able to stroll into the Crimea because Ukraine is not a NATO member. it would be a different story if he tried it on with one of the other countries...

    So the "special relationship" is 100% linked to NATO and leaving NATO would stop us following the US?

    Yeh sure lets support russia who are committing war crimes daily by bombing innocent people and supporting assad, a man who has dropped chemical weapons on the people, including children, in his own country.

    You perfectly display the typical greedy westerner who wants the middle east to suffer and let us stand by countries committing inhumane acts so that the refugees dont come and steal our jobs.

    Disgusting.

    We don't have to worry about the Russians invading. We've got the Brexit Mafia to sort everything out and silence any free speech and dissent that Putin might threaten to unleash if he invades England and Wales.

    The EU & NATO are not even remotely similar.

    Switzerland is, as close as makes no real difference, totally surrounded by NATO members which means that, other than Austria or Lichtenstein, only a NATO member is in a geographical position to actually invade them. It's geographical terrain naturally suits defence, it has no natural resources of note & much of its population is armed. I wouldn't say that the UK shares many of those features.

    So who is in a geographical position to actually invade the UK?

    We are an island surrounded by water with nuclear missles, so who is in a position to carry out a successful invasion and occupation of the UK?

    I'm not convinced it would have stopped him if Ukraine had been in NATO - he and many Russians imperialistically regard Ukraine as part of Russia, so more likely it would simply have precipitated war between NATO and Russia. Indeed, the stated reason Putin had for his many interventions in Ukraine was precisely because they were trying to join NATO.

    We're generally more likely to annoy people on the international scene because people actually give a **** about our existence.

    I'm glad you're secure enough to feel like you could stand up to Russia on your own.

    I think we should abolish the police force too they only protect people who are insecure about being mugged.

    :lol:

    Although last time I checked, phoning the police did not involve the immediate risk of total nuclear destruction. Nor do the police separately carry out murderous raids on our friends and allies and then demand we involve ourselves to support them in their tiffs with larger police forces. (Think Turkey)
