Separated at Birth?

Has Krauthammer been reading VodkaPundit? Says Charles:

...We should begin laying the foundation for a new alliance to replace the now obsolete Cold War alliances. Its nucleus should be the "coalition of the willing" now forming around us. No need to abolish NATO. The grotesque performance of France, Germany and Belgium in blocking aid to Turkey marks the end of NATO's useful life. Like the United Nations, it will simply wither of its own irrelevance.

We should be thinking now about building the new alliance structure around the United States, Britain, Australia, Turkey, such willing and supportive Old Europe countries as Spain and Italy, and the New Europe of deeply pro-American ex-communist states. Add perhaps India and Japan and you have the makings of a new post-9/11 structure.

From this site, on February 10:

It seems somehow unfair to our better NATO allies to leave the alliance, but there is an alternative: A new alliance that would officially sit alongside NATO, but in practice would render NATO as useful as a buggy whip for a hydrogen car.

Sign up Italy and Spain and Lithuania and the rest of the Gangs of Eight and Ten. Hell, get Israel, Australia, and India on board, too. The new threat is global -- not the simple, parochial interest of protecting Germany from. . . um, from whom are we protecting Germany?

Exactly. Don't withdraw from NATO, don't give Germany and France the satisfaction of having forced us to bolt "their" alliance. Just let it -- and them --wither on the vine.

That's about all I can manage right now -- Benadryl not only shrinks the sinuses, it also shrinks the brain.
