The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was formed to protect Europe against the threat of an expansionist communist Soviet Union. Under no circumstances should NATO again be used for trivial purposes, as it was in Serbia. The squabble in Libya threatens neither US nor any European nation. Any nation wanting to play "Referee" can put it's troops in zebra suits on it's own dime and send them in. The US should not be one of these. Deficits, remember?
