Does this count as coalition forming or are we too late for that?
Conservatives should be GNASHING their teeth.
Cause the EU is going for a piece of the pie?
damn - you're beating me to it everywhere.
Wonder what Job or Lamentations might say about how you feel.
I am a conservative and I am not gnashing my teeth. NATO is a necessary evil. It makes the Europeans happy to have a say in things and produces good relations between everyone. NATO does not have any ME involvement and Europe does need to step up to the plate and do some good. Especially in light of the fact that terrorists are using the Balkins to do their drug running, weapons smuggling, people smuggling ect.
NATO is the only military that works for Europe on a united front. As much as they all hate each other in Europe and cant agree on anything between countries this is as good as it gets. And if the terrorists take control of Eastern Europe it will be only a matter of time before they take over Western Europe. America would be hard pressed to take care of that along with everything else.
NATO has a symbiotic relation with much of the whole world. We all depend on each other economically and are only set up that way and nothing else.
NATO is as toothless as the UNSC. France & Germany saw to that.
No, if there is an international body to enforce the consensus of nations, something new has to be crafted.
After what happened recently with Iraq, any existing international body with those two countries in it with veto power is deemed useless.
And the LAST thing that should happen is to allow France, Germany or Russia to partake of the rebuilding of Iraq. I don't care if it's with the International Smurf Lover Guild.
They said 'No at all costs!', and that's that.
We'll foot the bill, as usual. This time, the world will know who stepped up to the plate.
What is being missed here is that the majority of all international groups are the EU.
That kind of makes any presumption that an international body is useless rather a blind assumption overlooking the threat of the EU.
I can't wait for the liberals to come out and say that we have no more international support in Iraq.
