Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And who gets to decide what they rapidly respond to ?

Let me guess ....the White House ?? So basically Europe is now signing its military up for supporting all american wars of choice, without hindrance or debate from Europe about the purpose of such actions.

The EU is not interested in putting its "rapid response force" at the White House's disposal, so we just create a "NATO rapid response force".

It would be interesting to compare troop contributions to either by various countries...
