“Welcome, friends, I’m glad to be able to meet with you all here in the White House. I have something I need to propose to the body of NATO, if I may.”
“You called a meeting of the worlds most powerful leaders for a tidbit of policy! We have ambassadors you know!” PM Theresa May says.
“I won’t call it a tidbit. First, I propose the admittance of 42 countries into NATO, and I propose amending the Constitution of NATO to reflect a new global nature, the Global Treaty Organization.”
Gasps go around the room. “My, why!” The Prime Minister of Canada says.
“To protect our mutual allies around the world, and the stop China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, and Iraq from expanding their spheres of influence.”
“I have no objection.” The lame duck president of Germany says. “Let’s vote on this.”
The final vote is 20-8, adopting countries around the world, from Argentina to Japan to Israel to Mexico, into the worlds most powerful alliance.
This enraged the enemies of NATO, most especially North Korea. Kim Jon-Un. In a statement on February 2nd, days after the NATO White House conference, Kim said “The Americans, in their adoption of a rebel state in the southern region of our beautiful peninsula, risk war with our nation.”
Cruz, in response, tweeted out, “North Korea is a small mouse trying to fight a bear.” This resulted in the Democrats nicknaming Cruz, ‘The Bear,’ a nickname he fully embraced.
North Korea, however, was not appeased. Military units began to guard the armistice line with South Korea, and then North Korea’s navy blockaded Seoul. American naval vessels then surrounded the comparatively small North Korean fleet, forcing North Korea to stand down.
The North Korean Crisis now resolved, and NATO members on all continents, Cruz began with a popular foreign policy and an approval rating of 63%. However, not all was well in the world. The Middle East, Central Asia, and Kashmir all would become points of conflict internationally, but closer to home, a Supreme Court seat still sat vacant...
Right, If we assume it could be done on a simple majority vote it wouldn't occur at the drop of an hat like that, even if just stating an intent to invite those nations to join. Furthermore I suspect that at least some of those 42 would raise questions on things like political and economic stability as well as human rights. I know Israel is unlikely to be acceptable to many because of their activities on the west bank and the very hostile reaction that would occur from the Muslim world. Similarly if your including Taiwan, not only is that not accepted as a national state, including by the US it would have China up in arms, quite probably literally.
Also has Cruz actually sounded out those 42 nations themselves? I suspect not as no way such an idea could be kept secret but I wonder if all of them would be willing to join if it ties them to assorted political and military commitments, especially at such short notice.
Cruz had reached these fourth two nations, I just didnt put that in their because it would be massive. The vast majority are smaller American nations like Jamaica and Mexico, and although their will be controversy with some (such as Israel), the majority are just a drop in the bucket, making the de facto reflect the de jure.
