    Do military treaties have any value? Or are the worthless at best and often just trickery?
    I consider myself a nationalist.I believe nations should act in their own interests.The US should wean itself off of trying to make the world it's bitch.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    If you are a rogue government, they have value when you want them to, and none when you don't want them to. Take the US government, for example....
    There are none so blind as those who choose not to see....
