BRUSSELS, June 27 (Reuters) - NATO will boost the number of troops on high alert by more than sevenfold to over 300,000, its secretary-general said on Monday, as allies prepared to adopt a new strategy describing Moscow as a direct threat four months into the Ukraine war.

Russia's February invasion of Ukraine has sparked a major geopolitical shift in the West, prompting once neutral countries Finland and Sweden to apply to join NATO and Ukraine to secure the status of candidate to join the European Union.

"Russia has walked away from the partnership and the dialogue that NATO has tried to establish with Russia for many years," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels ahead of a NATO summit later this week in Madrid.

"They have chosen confrontation instead of dialogue. We regret that - but of course, then we need to respond to that reality," he told reporters.

The June 28-30 NATO summit comes at a pivotal moment for the alliance after failures in Afghanistan and internal discord during the era of former U.S. President Donald Trump, who threatened to pull Washington out of the alliance


Why are we participating in the stupidity?

Even Reuters has a liberal bias if you look close enough: It read "U.S. President Donald Trump, who threatened to pull Washington out of the alliance" instead of "U.S. President Donald Trump, who threatened to pull Washington out of the alliance if they don't start paying their fair share."

And they did pay their fare share, thanks to President Trump. That's why NATO is so strong today.

The NATO summit in Madrid is set to define China as a “systemic challenge” and Russia as a “direct threat” according to Bloomberg. Since the end of the Cold War, NATO has been seeking reasons to justify its existence by creating crises and adversaries.
