Move along, nothing to see here…..
A former NATO ambassador outlines a triple threat facing leaders this week in Warsaw, and what they need to do about it.
Addressing the threat from Russia enjoys widespread support throughout the Alliance, even if those most exposed to the Russian military challenge are understandably the most insistent on proactive measures of deterrence and reassurance. The same is much less true when it comes to the security challenges emanating from the south. To date, NATO has taken a distinctly secondary role in addressing the threats of terrorism and preventing large-scale migration across the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas. But that could well change, as the European Union, newly embroiled in its own crisis, may prove unable to address these challenges on its own.
