THE GUARDIAN: Article V invoked for the first time on European ground

This afternoon, it was officially confirmed in a press conference given by the military, that Article V has been activated. Another questionable move of the sitting UK government? The decision to invoke Article V after a violation of Denmark’s airspace and national waters is a very drastic move given the unclarity on the actual threat that Russia is posing to the alliance’s member states and whether there has been an actual act of aggression as there has been previous violations of Danish airspace as part of a Russian military exercise in 2015. As mentioned before, not all member states seem to be backing the military measures. Might another “alliance of the willing” be forming under the leadership of Theresa May and Donald Trump?
