Latest economic casualty: Basic defense for the West

NATO nations struggling with economic woes are on the verge of being unable to defend themselves in a crisis, and the go-to backup of the Unites States of America is warning it may not be able to catch everything that falls, according to a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Informed defense experts say that the European defense challenges are so great that the current economic crisis facing members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has greatly diminished nearly all European defense capabilities.

They say the problem is further compounded by the fact that the United States, which also is a NATO member, has its own budget crisis and problems of an overstretched military in waging four wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and a counter-terrorism war in Yemen.

Further, there now have been calls from Congress to “get tough” with Syria, meaning military intervention, and some observers believe the U.S. even has begun to engage Iran in a proxy war, most notably in Iraq in recent months.
