Europe’s armies are dysfunctional

In 1958, a well-known American writer who was conducting an investigation about Europe, Joseph Alsop, asked the pacifist Lord Russell: “What if the Soviets won’t be induced, in any way, to an agreement for nuclear disarmament?”. “In this case – said the Nobel Prize Laureate Russell – I would be personally in favor of unilateral disarmament”.

Fifty years later, Lord Russell got his wish. Europe is disarming.
