This month the KHC will focus on Europe and The Baltic nations, as our speaker addresses the following questions: What do Articles 5 and 6 of the North Atlantic Treaty really specify? What is the purpose of Article 5? What is and what is not an "armed attack"? How do "little green men" and cyberattacks fit the framework of Article 5? Does geography matter? What does the crystal ball say?
