When the Warsaw Pact ceased to exist, many analysts predicted the disappearance of the North Atlantic Pact. A logical question was posed: what is the purpose of this military Alliance if it does not have any real adversary, or a potential enemy? Who is it against? The doubts were reinforced after the dissolution of the Soviet Union when only one super power remained in the world, the United States of America. This military Alliance, however, survived and is, despite everything, the most powerful and important military Alliance in the world today.
