  Chiding Europe, U.S. defense chief
   says NATO outlook dim, America
    could decide not worth money
    BRUSSELS (AP) — In a stern rebuke, U.S. Defense
Secretary Robert Gates warned Friday that the future of
the historic NATO military alliance is at risk because of
European penny-pinching and distaste for front-line com-
bat. The United States won’t carry the alliance as a charity
case, the outgoing Pentagon chief said.
    Some NATO countries bristled, but Britain quickly and
heartily agreed.
    Gates’ assessment that NATO could face “a dim if not
dismal” future echoes long-standing concern of U.S. pol-
icymakers about European defense spending. But rare-
ly, if ever, has it been stated so directly by such a power-
ful American figure, widely respected in the United States
and internationally.
    The remarks, at the close of Gates’ final overseas trip,
reflect a new reality of constrained American finances and
a smaller global reach.
    Earlier in the week Gates played “bad cop” to U.S.
President Barack Obama’s good, criticizing Germany’s
abstention from the air campaign in Libya two days after
Obama lavished an award and fancy White House dinner
on visiting Chancellor Angela Merkel.
