The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Police Operational Mentor and Liaison Team (POMLT) combines police forces from over 20 countries to “coach, teach, mentor, provide the conduit for liaison, and when necessary, support the operational planning and employment of the ANP unit to which they are aligned in order to support the development of a professional, sufficient and self-sustaining ANP.”
This year, NATO facilitated an airstrike against the CIA – created Taliban in Ghazni, Afghanistan. It was confirmed by local authorities that “”The NATO planes went there to assist the police, but the post was bombed and four police were killed. Two civilians present were also killed.”
Because of the rise of the BRICs nations, the NATO believes that countries will need to rely on this international police force “to manage a range of threats and challenges.”
The perception of the international community is that the BRICs nations are “torn internally between accepting the status quo . . . only if their power in the institution is increased; or trying to fashion a new system altogether.”
While the Chinese are recognized as having more “blue hats” than any other rising super power and “becoming increasingly involved in global police work” NATO sees this nation as lacking “the willingness or wherewithal to take responsibility” to take care of themselves.
Global cooperation is encouraged with natural resources such as food and water; as well as combating climate change and “the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction” as the temperament of relations between nations becomes more “problematic”.
