Aesop- If the EU is finally going to step up and take resposibility for its own security and actually handle issues that arise in its own backyard, all well and good. That has yet to be demonstrated, however. Europeans have always talked the talk, but seldom matched words with action when it came to military commitments. The Brits are not included in that generalization.
The inaction and conduct of mainland Europes' nations during the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the bloodbath that followed was deplorable.
The attitude was "we will wait for the Americans to handle it" whilst complaining how serious the threat of a destabilized Balkan region was to European security. Tokenism has been the EU model since the wall came down. Americans and Brits die to secure and maintain Europes economies and physical integrity while the ingrates sell arms and support the very rogue nations that threaten them.
So please forgive my bitterness when it comes to the sincerity of some of our NATO "allies". It comes from having written letters to grieving parents and wives who lost sons and husbands to this travesty of a strategic partnership.
