Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So you're saying the European nations are totally incapable of looking to their own defense, and must ally themselves with the USA forever, because the USA alone has the strength to ward off the Russian tank armies. The ones that are never coming...

As far as I can see, the only point of NATO is to prevent an effective economic and military union of European nations sufficient to guarantee their independence. That, and allow the USA to subvert the UN and international law whenever the whim bites.

Down with NATO, sez I. And Canada should join the EU.
