International Cooperation: not a luxury, but a necessity
We live in a time of technological acceleration, which places great demand on the adaptability of our defence organisation. Furthermore, a world order seems to be developing in which the United States is more focused on Asia and using its (limited) military resources to protect its allies in that region. This means that, increasingly, we will see a transatlantic division of labour in which European countries take greater responsibility for the defence of Europe. A strong, autonomous, European defence within NATO is not only a political choice, but also a military necessity.
