NATO Wants...

 ... reportedly to fight two wars. 

NATO is set to adopt a guidance that lays out plans for a scenario in which member states find themselves fighting on the home front and beyond the borders of the alliance at the same time, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday. This comes as the US increasingly shifts its priorities to confronting China. The classified document is to be discussed and signed off on by NATO defense ministers during a two-day summit in Brussels that starts on Tuesday, the news outlet reported. Members will be asked to prepare national plans for future military engagements. The guidance will map out ways for NATO to engage in a “high-intensity so-called Article 5 conflict” – defending a NATO nation attacked by a foreign party under the treaty’s mutual defense provision – and “an out-of-area, non-Article 5 event.” The contents of the guideline were revealed to Bloomberg by “people familiar with the matter.”

In related news--I want to fly as a bird and sing as Freddy Mercury (or Marc Martel). And why not? Nobody forbids us from wanting things. Those wants are called dreams. So, dream on me and NATO. But, as I discussed it today with James Kunstler and Thomas--Washington completely lost the ability to calculate anything, from economics to military operations. But a dramatic change of tone in Western media is telling.
