    Look what I found on www.nato.int! You are about to read two key
    articles of NATO statute and one article of the UN Charter.

    What an irony...


    THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY - ARTICLE 1
    The Parties undertake, as set forth in the Charter of the United
    Nations, to settle any international dispute in which they may be
    involved by peaceful means in such a manner that international
    peace and security and justice are not endangered, and to refrain
    in their international relations from the threat or use of force
    in any manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations.


    THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY - ARTICLE 5
    The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in
    Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all
    and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each
    of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self
    defence recognised by Article 51 of the Charter of the UN...
    Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall
    immediately be reported to the Security Council. Such measures shall be
    terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to
    restore and maintain international peace and security.


    CHARTER OF THE UNITED NATIONS - ARTICLE 51
    Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of
    individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against
    a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken
    measures necessary to maintain international peace and security.
    Measures taken by Members in the exercise of this right of self defence
    shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in
    any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council
    under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems
    necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and
    security.


    Greetings,
