Defense Dodgeball

The Guardian's Martin Kettle has a few questions on the eve of another NATO summit:

Are we content to rely indefinitely on the US to set the security agenda and carry the burden for Europe within Nato? If not, what is the alternative? And if we are serious about any such alternative, how do we propose to put it into practice in the foreseeable future?

The answer to the first question is probably "no." The answer to the last two questions is, "I hear nothing!"
