The Leader of the Free World
Tuesday, 3 November 2020. The United States of America, will go to the polls and elect a candidate to the office of President. The most powerful position in the world.
This affects us all, US adversaries and allies alike.
The USA is the de facto leader of NATO, the most powerful supranational military organisation the world has ever seen. It mainly affects foreign and defence policy, it's rarely mentioned in the headlines. But, it has just as much influence, if not more than the European Union doe's over it's member states.
It's essentially a volunteer empire, a force multiplier if you like, and it could be perceived as a join us or your against us type organisation.
Donald Trump has averted war and brought adversaries to the negotiating table, once thought impossible. In my lifetime, every US President has had their war, Trump with all his bluster has avoided it.
The great thing about him, is he say's what he thinks, there's no spin, no lies, he say's it, how he see's it. Whether you agree or not, at least you know where you stand.
Whatever the outcome of the US election, it not only affects the future of the USA, it affects NATO, the Partnership for Peace, the 5 Eyes, the European Union and the rest of the world.
I know who I'd be voting for!
