Plain language from abroad:

"All these explanations may have elements of truth. But, in trying to
explain Nato policy, they ignore the fundamental political and military flaw
within the alliance itself.

The bottom line is that Nato is not an association of equal partners. It is
a US security organisation to which others belong. Nato does not do
anything, or go anywhere, without an OK from Washington, especially not into
a war zone in the Balkans. And what Washington wants is decided by the
administration in charge."

Can anyone cite a media source for such straightforward opnion on this
subject by resident PI's?
