Pre-emptive nuclear strike a key option, Nato told | Special reports | Guardian Unlimited
The authors - General John Shalikashvili, the former chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff and Nato's ex-supreme commander in Europe, General Klaus Naumann, Germany's former top soldier and ex-chairman of Nato's military committee, General Henk van den Breemen, a former Dutch chief of staff, Admiral Jacques Lanxade, a former French chief of staff, and Lord Inge, field marshal and ex-chief of the general staff and the defence staff in the UK - paint an alarming picture.........

The key threats are:

· Political fanaticism and religious fundamentalism.            

What about military fundamentalism?

Will there be an European politician to tell the military it's not their business to set out policies?
