Brussels, Belgium

Upon becoming leader of his nation, this guy spit a bit at the USA having way too much power in the NATO sphere, and at first proposed a leadership scheme where France, the UK, and US would have equal power, and then proposed a plan so that in the event of Soviet invasion, his nation could negotiate separately while screwing over the rest of NATO. In 1966, this dude removed his nation's forces from NATO command and ordered all NATO forces out of his nation, a situation that remained until 2009, though the US and his nation secretly worked out a way to integrate his nation's forces in case of attack. Identify this world leader whose hobbies were pissing people (even the Canadians!) off and dodging assassination attempts.

In April 1982, Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands, but NATO's Article 5 could not be invoked by the UK because of the location of the islands. The NATO charter specifically notes that attacks on member territories south of this line of latitude cannot lead to Article 5 being invoked, meaning a North Korean attack on Guam would likewise not trigger Article 5 being invoked. Identify the line of latitude which marks the southern border of Article 5 requests for intervention, a line of latitude so-named because of the sun's location during the summer solstice.

Dayton, (Ohio)

One of this nation's burning questions, as it has since 1949, is whether or not to join NATO or not. This nation's military has partnered with NATO on past missions, including intervention in Bosnia and in Libya, but not even the release of a report in 2013 showing that Russia had wargamed nuclear attacks on this nation swayed its populace away from neutrality. In the wake of Russia's annexation of the Crimea, the detection of a mysterious submarine near this nation's capital, and several Russian fighters penetrating their airspace, this nation may be changing its tune. Along with Switzerland, the last nation maintaining a neutral nation presence in the Korean DMZ, identify this nation whose more moderate parties are now exploring NATO membership.
