I think part of what we are seeing is that NATO no longer makes sense in that its member countries are no longer aligned in terms of who is friend and who is enemy. No longer is it post-WWII US/Western Europe vs Soviet Union driving the perceived common threat. Islam has entered the mix in a big way and not all NATO members are friends of the “West”. NATO is a global disaster waiting to happen if certain member countries such as Turkey expect us to come to their defense at the same time they are trying to spread that which wants to destroy us (Islam).
The world does not need the Balkans going at it again.
