Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos confirmed Colombia will become the latest member of NATO, and the first from Latin America, during a press briefing in Bogota on Friday.

“We are getting into the big leagues. We will be measured, compared and evaluated with the best,” Santos said.

He went on to describe the problems posed by an increasingly globalised world but hailed the benefits Colombia recieves from the international community.

“We will formalise in Brussels next week, the admission of Colombia into NATO as a ‘Global Partner’ is very important,” he concluded.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Yet another puppet joins the pack of rabid dogs. Fools, leading their own to the coming slaughter. I’m just surprised they didn’t do the Jerusalem thing like Guatemala. Give them time.
