ABC Asks: Is NATO’s Article Five Being Upheld?

ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper asks: “Is NATO’s Article Five being upheld?”

Of course it isn’t.

NATO was set up to keep the Russians out of Europe. Continental Europe* took an interest in that, more or less.

These days, NATO has a larger mission. It’s not all about Europe anymore.

So when it is time to sacrifice blood and treasure, you can count Europe out.

*I’m not including Britain.
