Security Organizations

  • Many nations have always formed defensive military alliances to ensure their security.

  • When the Cold War began, the Western countries of Europe and those of North America feared the military threat of the Soviet Union. Thus they formed NATO in 1949.

  • NATO members agreed that an attack on one member was an attack on all. When the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1980s, NATO began to take on peacemaking missions, such as the mission in Afghanistan.

  • Other nations have also formed alliances. Russia and other former Soviet Republics have formed the Collective Security Treaty Organization.
