NATO and the Gaza Flotilla
The link is to a post by Craig Murray who used to be the UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan.
He makes the interesting point that Turkish vessels have been attacked by a non-member of NATO and that Nato's prime function is a military alliance established to defend its members against attack.
It raises the question as to what extent NATO is independent of the USA. He also looks at the conflict in Afghanistan from that perspective.
The conflict is in essence a tribally based conflict where the NATO forces are aligned with a number of minority tribes.
This is dressed up as an ideological conflict. That is an error of analysis.
