Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"The general public opinion [in Finland] would be for a European security solution instead of NATO. But the politicians don't hold out much hope for this - the EU is not a military alliance and any security guarantees given by the EU states are not such as could offer real defence," she added.
I have an idea: let's put a Finn in charge of the European Defence Agency.

Hmmm, the head of the EDA is the HR for the CFSP, which is Javier Solana of NATO Serbia bombing campaign fame.

I was going to suggest Martti Ahtisaari [no other Finnish diplomats come to mind, sorry] to succeed Solana, but he's gotten himself embroiled in the Kosovo mess on the NATO side, so I don't know.
