Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Agree partially.  The UN is a juggernaut that has existed for a long time without doing much of the work NATO has done.  NATO helped keep the peace during the cold war, with its military arm.  Arm the UN, to what purpose.  The only quasi effective military action it could agree on was the defense of S. Korea and then only because the USSR wasn't present for the vote.

True, the European Defense Agency should be able can look after Europe, but who helps the rest of the world?

Why does NATO have to subordinate Europe to US interests?  How does NATO undermine European support for a non-military UN?
