MacKenzie: NATO is shirking

No shit?  Check for political language, and even the NATO website describes meetings held to determine whether or not NATO members actually have any intention of fulfilling their treaty obligations.

And the shirking is going to continue for the foreseeable future, because the chances of the US responding to the post-9/11 environment with “you failed your Chapter 5 obligations, therefore we are no longer in alliance with you” is unfortunately unlikely.

Though such a move would be quite the “muscle tonic” for our allies.  And, for those of you who don’t have the background, this IS one of our allies talking.
