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
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
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

The driver of the truck, Robert Caldwell of Gravel Springs

McIntire, 40, of South Jacksonville was released from the

The accident was turned over to Illinois State Police Dis-

“The last I heard from the trooper is that he wasn’t ﬁn-

“They are going to review a video of the accident that was
