I think this is great.  NATO has outlived its time.  All joking about the French military aside, its leave would be a big blow to NATO as France it probably has the next best military in the alliance after the U.S. 

Here's hoping she wins!

Why is disbanding NATO a good thing?

The French elect their President democratically. She can't win unless she gets more than 50 percent of the votes. That seems unlikely.

Because NATO's reason for existence, the Soviet Union, disappeared over a generation ago.  Now, NATO expansionism is the issue, an expansionism which may lead us into WWIII.

Better to end it.

Depends on if she can make it to the 2nd round or not and if she'll have the support of any of the losing parties. Could get interesting.

That would be unprecedented. When her father made it to the second round he got 80 percent of the votes against him. The "Front National" is avoided like the plague by the other parties. I doubt she could get near the 50 percent that she needs. She'll most likely make it to the second round though.

I know the "Soviet Union" does not exist, however, as you well know, Russia DOES still exist and apparently under Putin STILL have designs on expanding it's territory once again.  Note The Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland got in and are STAYING in.

- why does it have to be called something like NATO? - cant a bunch of nations say they are allies? - can it be secret who are allies? - wouldn't it be obvious which nations are allies but maybe a few?
