05 Apr 2009 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.
