President Donald Trump, who rattled USA allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting last week, voiced concern in a television interview broadcast Tuesday night that sending troops from the alliance to defend an "aggressive" Montenegro could result in World War III. They're very aggressive people. It found its voice Thursday, and what came out was less a battle cry than a chorus of "Kumbaya".
Montenegro may fan concerns in the White House about starting World War III but the Balkan nation has a recent history of the opposite - well-versed and successful in dealing with tensions between USA and Russian Federation.

Montenegro have been fighting for freedom for centuries.

In its 12 years of independence, the tiny country has not once come close to starting a war. LePage says it originally focused on disaster relief, emergency management and border security.

It's true, as Trump regularly points out, that the United States spends 4% of its GDP on defense, but that's because it has military commitments all over the world.
"To have the president of the USA, the most powerful member of the alliance, question Nato's principle of solidarity can only work in Russia's favour", he quipped.
"I don't know what to say, I think this is really stupid", another local told CNN.
The only time Article 5 was ever invoked was by America after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks conducted by al-Qaeda. So let's say Montenegro, which joined previous year, is attacked. Russian Federation has denied the allegation.
