BooMan On NATO

Booman Tribune ~ A Progressive Community:
"Yes, there is a degree of hypocrisy involved here, since America has fostered this situation. We'll no doubt hear from Europeans that we've thwarted previous efforts at military independence. But, let's be real. Europe hasn't tried very hard. And now things have changed. I'm not very comfortable telling other countries that they should be spending a higher percentage of their budgets on bombs, but it's more about the U.S. spending a vastly smaller percentage on them without costing NATO in military capabilities. If NATO can't run an operation in a narrow strip of desert land on the Mediterranean coast for eleven weeks without running out of weapons, then they're almost useless."
