Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, there are all kinds of ways in which you could formulate that statement :-)

The conclusion seems to be: Not going to happen

For my part, there may have been an opportunity for NATO to evolve into an institution that could further a principled, legal global order in the 90s. Now that opportunity is gone. As Kerry's "global test" was part of his downfall in the 2004 elections and the top runners in the Democratic primary remain committed to strong unilateral use of military force, I think that we won't see the chance again in the next 4-8 years.

(I won't even start on the current or possible future negative uses of NATO)
