“NATO’s European members are in one of their periodic states of funk. When Joe Biden was elected president, they believed that the good times were back, with Washington unashamedly putting them first. Then Biden withdrew U.S. forces from Afghanistan — without asking the continent’s permission. What followed was much whining and caterwauling about Europe’s lack of independent military capabilities. … NATO’s promotional efforts remain bizarre. After National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan’s visit to Brazil last month, there is talk of bringing that nation into the alliance.” (09/07/21)
