If there weren't one, we would have to invent one. It allows America to conduct its business around the world in a way that never would have occurred were it not for NATO," Biden told reporters, noting the importance of Article Five as a “sacred obligation.”

whatever That’s not far enough! Brainwashing others with fake social distancing while in other pictures, they're without social distancing, what a world we are in. Weren’t they all vaccinated?

This laughable projection is entirely predictable, though. Joe Biden Confuses Syria With Libya THREE TIMES JOEHASDEMENTIA

Aren't they all vaccinated? God never let you go. Who determines who stands where & behind who? Why is Biden in front They are all vaccinated. So they don’t believe in science. Président of Poland has a dumb face 🤭
NATO nations ready to jointly respond to attacks in spaceNATO leaders will expand the use of their all for one, one for all, collective defense clause to include attacks in space, the military organization’s top civilian official says. Because they would have exploited the technicality before? Gtfoh.
🤡🤡🤡 Sadly American values are just talk.they think US democracy is the best LOL- its sham!they do not want any non-white person/people/country to rise above white man. most are super racist with double standards and scared of China . US or anyone can not remain superpower forever I don't see Orban! What about behind the scene🤣🤣🤣
Globalists, together with plans to gaslight and control the population! All in lockstep unison, ushering in a global socialist union. The dream is to be like Russia and China with total government control of everything and everyone! China and Russia have joined together to March! I am so happy to see Germany's PM A Merkel ; she looks healthy and strong.
LOL idiots Then right after the picture they all went backstage, took off their face masks and didn’t do any social distancing. NATO is a racist organization seeking to maintaining western hegemony and dominance. Compared to America and Europe, China has not invaded any country in recent times. America has hundreds of military bases around the world NOT China. Stop your racist attack on China!

Biden seeks to recommit US to NATO after tense Trump yearsUS President Joe Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump had undermined the importance of the alliance in his four-year term, with frequent insults about the relevance of multilateral organisations such as NATO.
In this picture, you see a shining 'world leader'( RTErdogan ) among vampires who value oil more than the blood and tears of children murdered in the Middle East! Erdogan is Abdulhamit Han's grandson, the last conqueror of Hagia Sophia.🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷♥️♥️♥️ Covid theater. When they think the cameras aren't on they are shaking hands and standing in close groups. Pictures and video are already available. But now we know why all this theater is done--CNN and other media outlets are here to gobble it all up.
LOOK 🆘Everyone on Social Security & Medicare REMEMBER Trump signed EO to get➡️RID Social Security & Medicare ✅Must VOTE Democrat Every Election 🛑STOP THEM or Loose💰💵Income & 🚑Medicare Insurance‼️ Future Republican President can do same ❌NO Republican in White House You can't be serious putting out this tweet. This one has to be recalled for its complete lack of truth.
But there are viral photos and videos of them without masks, hugging and embracing, arms around each other. Talking face to face with 95 yr old Queen of England without masks or distancing. So why bother with this performance? But JeffreyToobin ? No pushing and shoving to be in front!!!! And 5 mins later Just like the G7 summit…🙈🙈
Out of these 30 nations, how many have a single payer healthcare system? What’s the tax rate? What’s the mean education level? What percentage of population lives below middle income? Comical
Biden at NATO for bridge building after Trump mocked alliance as 'obsolete'Biden is attending his first NATO meeting as president, aiming to build bridges after Trump berated allies as 'deadbeats' and belittled the alliance. REMEMBER when America was a world leader and highly respected. An Economic Powerhouse with a lot of CLOUT. Then Trump and the Republicans wiped America off the Global Map. Practiced Authoritarian Protectionism. Welcome back Great Neighbours eh. AMC to the moon 🚀 we love the stock.
This shit is so stupid. Who is this knucklehead, laughing like a moron in the middle of the picture? Am i the only one who sees this?!!!🧐 how many people died caused by their Incompetent leader They should kick turkye from NATO Turkish regime is terrorists regime and they support all the terrorism organizations in the Middle East
Somebody is looking at his watch and the whole world saw it. Happy Birthday President Trump All theater It’s like non of them weren’t vaccinated?
NATO Summit: Stoltenberg says China not enemy but poses security challengesThere is no new Cold War with China but Western allies will have to adapt to the security challenges the rise of Beijing brings, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says ahead of Brussels summit. So there is a new Cold War? In response, NATO will pose challenges for Beijing and vice versa. This is how a Cold War is fought. You fail to address the situation faced by Nato partner Turkey facing terrorism from usa and Europe funded pkk/ypg/sdf who recently destroyed a hospital in syria killing doctors/nurses/patients..and here you are talking about fighting China..
That wavy background makes it look like funhouse mirrors and the guys (only the guys) look like mix and match. You can’t fold your hands and wait for opportunities to come your way. You have to work hard and invest to to create opportunities.all thanks to Christy Daves christydaves892 for introducing me to bitcoin mining and trading investment. I made &$40,000 with investment of $5000
How about doing something about climate change for real cause the G7 just came up with a way to recycle a slogan for the third time in between useless photo ops like this. Something of substance FFS ближе подойите All these so called world leaders are terrorists that are planning where to terrorise next, I don't know how the world allow these criminals to be still reigning.
Yeah, 'as they pose for a photo'. We agree to surrender unconditionally to the Empire! Just wait til the cameras are turned away and they are hugging with no care for distance. Simply politics That is so incredibly stupid.
Factbox: Rifts that divide NATO allies Turkey and United StatesJoe Biden holds his first meeting as U.S. president with Tayyip Erdogan on Monday, ending a five-month wait for the Turkish leader which underlines the cooler relations between Ankara and Washington since Biden took office in January.
It scares me how sheepish and inconsistent our world leaders are. Completely inept. Powerful, I wish there were more women and brown people! Pls!!!save the world frm the Pariah CHINA GOVERNMENT. But foremost in leaders' minds , diplomats say, is a need to hear Biden recommit the United States to NATO's collective defence after Trump era .
Please help me! My name is Lin donglong, an employee of China telecom fuzhou branch. Company manager huang fei (communist party of China) organized the leadership of the gang of evil forces brutal persecution: surveillance location, insult,abuse, framed to take nude photos of me Congratulations? Apparently they don't have faith in the vaccine.
Are they not vaccinated? The science says masks are more important than social distancing. This picture just makes them look dumb.
People say this is staged like it's controversial. Tweet says 'pose for a photo' = not meant to be candid. The photo shows them practicing social distancing. They don't have to if they're vaccinated. This will probably go with 'standing apart but together for the world' messaging They should get the vaccine and then they wouldn’t need to social distance
One thing we can count on——Biden won’t go on a freak show tirade about NATO dues that he thinks are paid directly to the US—- Why, are they not vaccinated? This is what discredits the whole vaccine narrative. If your vaccinated it either works or it doesn’t. Which is it. CNN's fine and accurate reporting is nothing short of admirable....sigh.
Absurd theatre. The United States, ruled by the Democratic and Republican parties, is endlessly provoking conflicts and confrontations with other countries in the world. This will not bring any benefit to ordinary Americans, only disasters.
