feel free to help me research this, also going to try and come up with list of countries US/NATO are pushing arm sales to that are already suffering economic woes …
Its Partnership for Peace program has 22 members with a twenty-third, Cyprus, to join soon.
Its Mediterranean Dialogue has seven with Libya to be the eighth.
Its Istanbul Cooperation Initiative program has six members.
Its Partners Across the Globe program has eight so far.
The above totals 73 nations out of 192 in the United Nations; that is, 38 percent of the world’s countries.
If NATO succeeds in signing collective partnerships with the 54-nation African Union and the ten-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations – a process that is underway – the U.S.-led military bloc will consist of 138 members and partners, over two-thirds of the nations in the world.
