NATO Secretary General announces dates for 2016 Warsaw Summit

NATO Secretary General: "I am happy to announce that the next NATO Summit will take place on 8-9 July, 2016 in Warsaw, Poland".

This Summit comes at a crucial time for the Alliance, as the tectonic plates of Euro-Atlantic security have shifted both in the East and the South. We are already implementing the biggest reinforcement of our collective defence since the end of the Cold War. In Warsaw, we will chart the course for the Alliance’s adaptation to the new security environment, so that NATO remains ready to defend all Allies against any threat from any direction.

We will build on our valuable work with partner nations and organisations to keep our neighbourhood stable. We will stress our long-term commitment to Afghanistan through the Enduring Partnership. And we will further strengthen the bond between Europe and North America on which our Alliance is founded.

Poland has been a staunch Ally since it joined in 1999, as part of the historic enlargement that helped heal the division across Europe. Poland is committed to strong defence and makes a vital contribution to Allied solidarity. I warmly welcome Poland’s offer to host our meeting and I look forward to a very successful Summit in July 2016.

Hi Ray! My name is Keith Williams. So nice to meet you! You don\'t know me but 31 years ago on June or July 1st, my wife Donna and I bought the house that you grew up in Weeksville (33 Elizabeth Ave.) from your pearnts. I remember that your dads name was Doug but your moms name has slipped from my memory. We raised our two kids here and they have many memories as you have about growing up here close to the Naugy! I\'m sitting in my favorite chair in the same living room you grew up in, typing this on my new Ipad! ( Some things Do change! Ha ha). My son is the same age as Terry Hannon and they grew up as best friends. Jim and I became fast friends as I was interested in Astronomy as he is. As a matter of fact, I started a business going to Elementary and Middle schools in Connecticut with an inflatable, portable planetarium and taught the students about astronomy! The two of us started an Astronomy Club at the Naugatuck Valley Community Technical College (formally Mattatuck Cummunity College) in Waterbury know as The Mattatuck Astronomical Society. Mr. Hart\'s daughter Donna now lives next door to us. It was so interesting reading your blog about Weeksville! I was put onto your blog by Ruth who is one of our Librarians downtown when she found out I live in your former house. Listen, If you would like to be brought up to date about some of the people you have written about, please feel free to email me at any time. It would be better to chat off blog to keep some things from automatically becoming public. Regards, Keith

I am not sure if NATO wants to be perceived as a cool mirilaty alliance but it definitely tries to reach its target audiences with scenes and locations they can identify with. In this way, NATO is not only be seen as an inviolable institution that fights for peace and stability somewhere abroad but as a partner or friend that is at your side in case of war or conflicts.Maybe the three spots of the online campaign get a different fedback in the United States, but as a German student I could imagine that Europeans will not like the spots.To make that clear, I like how the spots are made although the style of each spot is very aggressive and plays with a strong confrontation of anxiety and joy. The message is “We want you to live in peace and security and we will fight for that all over the world“ which definitely needs a strong concept to be transferred to the public. In this way, it is not the design that holds me back from sending the videos to my friends or post them on my Facebook profile.It is the topic “war” itself that scares me and that I, based on German history, try to avoid. I cannot connect it with something good, but only with death and destruction.In this way, I am wondering if the three spots get the same feedback in all 26 NATO-member countries and how intense the cultural background of each country impacts the perception of the ads. That would be an interesting point for more research.

Ray,I also am a born again Christian and God has given me a heart for the unsaved. I pray earnsetly several times a day for their salvation and unfortunately my family is among them. My heart is very heavy about my family but I know God will continue to knock on the door of their heart and I pray they will open it and inviting Him in. I so enjoy your blogs and I think it is because it is so full of God. Thank you for your dedication to inform others.In Christ\'s love,Donna Sanford

Hello, Ray I wish my children and grhecdaildrnn could know the peace and saftey, never mind fun, of growing up in Thomaston when we did. My kids loved the adventure of growing up on military bases around the world. And, the grandkids love all the excitment and possibilities of their childhood today. I guess childhood for most is a great time regardless of when and where. Thanks for sharing yours with us and letting me relive those good old days. Keep writing.

Ray, I am also a born-again saved Christian, I\'ve been saved for about 25 years and and active in Christain Fellowship Center in Bristol, Ct. The best thing that ever haneeppd to me was to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. My life has been changed and blessed because of this decision.I enjoyed your testimony and it\'s true, Jesus is our anchor!Blessings, Jean Young [url=]ltcumcyu[/url] [link=]ncgjomkxdz[/link]

Totally reminds me of 1984. War is peace. You need our bombs for your foeedrm.It won\'t go viral on facebook because war and military alliances are not perceived as cool . You can sell the army with slick commercials, but the concept of military intervention is much more difficult to sell, especially after Irak or Afganistan. Which is good news btw, and why this whole EEC/EC/EU business started in the first place. [url=]xadkivsu[/url] [link=]mhejjhsp[/link]
