Who is NATO?

Obviously they are the National Atlantic Treaty Organization..but what countries make up this group? Which country has more troops and more military assets involved? Which country spends the most money?

Since there is a lot of hoopla surrounding Libya and NATO has now taken over..I was just wondering if you ladies knew who is really in charge.

  • "Most notably, Russia remains a non-member of NATO. Interestingly enough, in the military structure of NATO, a U.S. military officer is always commander-in-chief of NATO forces so that U.S. troops never come under control of a foreign power"

    interesting....

  • Great samurai, but what did you really learn? How many troops represent Slovakia? How much money is Denmark contributing? Where the heck is Germany? They aren't participating by the way.
