when did jordan join NATO ?

last I saw it's just another US hating muzzie country that danced in the streets 9/11.
.
here's an idea, protect our friends and allies, not our enemies.
.
bolster their military capabilities ? how's that bolstering doing in afghanistan lately ? seems the troops/police there we train and 'bolster' kill more of our guys than the taliban lately.
.
this admin never learns from mistakes, they just keep repeating them. let syria (a russian puppet state) fall, fail, whatever.

Well let me see the government saw that it was starting to tread thin water with the American Population with the Iraq thing. So we set priority focus on Afghanstan. Now the government see we are wearing our welcome out there. They have to have some place to put the troops so they can waste the unnecssessary spending of the American tax money.
What politician would ever think of bring them home and concentrating the efforts of the US Military on things the US actually has an interest in.
