Is there a need for NATO anyway?

Reader comment on item: Does Turkey Still Belong in NATO?

Submitted by Guzel Ankara (United States), Apr 7, 2009 at 08:14

With EU and Russia seeing eye to eye on most issues and locked in an embrace of self-interest, what is the rationale for continung to have Nato?

Most European members of Nato did not support the American invasion of Iraq anyway, seeing it as what it is, an oil grab for Anglo-American energy corporations.

So why keep up the pretense of a united alliance, when the members obviously can not agree on a common course of action for Iraq, Afghanistan, putting a missile shield in Europe etc.. ??
