"What are we doing in NATO anyway? Maybe it made sense in 1949 to put aside our distrust of 'entangling alliances' in order to confront the Soviet threat. But that threat disappeared two decades ago. Today, the alliance's main functions seem to be forcing the U. S. taxpayer to subsidize Europe's generous welfare states, and periodically embroiling us in conflicts, like Kosovo and Libya, that we'd be smarter to avoid." (04/26/11)
