How NATO weakens the WestCited by: Krauss believes that NATO is a one-sided partnership and the European dependence on American protection and weapons is "absurd."

Pointing out that NATO eats up an elephantine portion of the U.S. defense budgetfrom 42% to 58%, according to estimates quoted herehe argues that the Europeans are very far from pulling their own.
