Name a reason for NATO to give a fuck about Afghanistan.
You are right. They didn't even care about Bosnia in their own
f------ backyard till
the U.S. intervened.
That is of course false. The United States intervened because the
European Union was on the verge of intervening, which would have meant
the end of NATO and the loss of that airbase in Germany.
"On the verge." "We're doing it! Yes sir; any minute now!" Europeans were disinterested, greedy and cowardly.
No, they were very interested in Serbia. They were afraid of it turning
into an expansionistic nation dominating the Balkans.
You're seriously deluded, Johnston. Yugoslavia fell apart thanks to
Europe's premature recognition of its constituent states, none of which
were instantly capable of being nation-states that recognized each
other's boundaries as inviolate. Germany pushed this and the rest of
Europe went along, somehow forgetting that fucking around in the Balkans
For the first time the European Union was debating a military
intervention. The Americans came in to nip that in the bud before they
realized that with the Cold War over, Europe didn't really need NATO
Are the Europeans going to write the United States a big fat check for
protecting from Soviet invasion for several decades?
Oh: NATO was never actually used for its intended purpose: to thwart
Russian aggression. Did you forget Georgia and Ukraine?
Fuck Europe. They have no real interest in preventing further wars in
Europe and turn a blind eye as it keeps happening time and time again.
