Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Understand, but make that veto right happen and you could just wind up with an organization that is far more effective than the UN ever could be and for a lot less cost and effort.  Following the US's recent foreign policy and military disasters in the Middle East, a new American administration might be willing to work out a new agreement on NATO's organization.  Who knows, it would be worth a try.  Modern post-WWII Europe is coming of age economically and should be in a better position to press for more favorable  consideration.  In such a context Europe could play an important role in moderating the US's tendency towards rash and self-defeating foreign policies while cooperating on sound mutually agreeable activities.   Just a thought.
