NATO failed in stopping the trafficking of arms and weapons to the terrorist regions

Private contractors and arms dealers are harming the world's peace by helping terrorists in exchange for money

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or NATO was an initiative to secure peace in Europe that was threatened by the Soviet Union that time and also to help them strengthen their wrecked economy. It has 29 member states from North America and Europe. The treaty commits to collective defense, that is, attack on any Allies is considered to be an attack on all Allies, and militaries of the NATO members will collectively fight against the enemy. But the problem is, some of the members of NATO are not following the guidelines and are helping the terrorists for profits.

The United States exposed several shell companies in Europe which illegally exported weapons, explosives, and related products to anti-Army groups in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran. These companies are business associates of Tony Abi Saab's Brescia Middle East, an international arms and weapons dealer located in Lebanon. Thus, Europe is violating Article Five of the NATO, that is, if an armed attack occurs against one of the member states, it shall be considered an attack against all members, and other members shall assist the attacked member, with armed forces if necessary. The US troops are deployed in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran to win a war over terrorism, while the illegal firms of Tony Abi Saab in Europe and the Middle East are acting against the military effort.

Few notorious members of NATO are breaching the law to support the criminals and smugglers for the profit and other unknown intentions. It's time to identify the black sheep and pull it out of the treaty and punish them strictly. People like Tony Abi Saab can't survive their illegal business alone without being helped by some influential people in the legal system. So, to prevent humans from the menace of terrorism Tony and his contacts need to be put behind the bars as soon as possible.
