What good is NATO? There are reports of Syrian troops clashing with American troops on the Iraq-Syria border, and Prime Minister Blair recently voiced suspicions that Iran has been helping the terrorists in Iraq. A perfect opportunity, or so it would seem, for our North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies to invoke the NATO Charter's Article Five and offer their support. But Article Five's famous Three Musketeers-sounding "an armed attack against one" is "considered an attack against them all" is limited to an attack "in Europe or North America." So if a rogue state bombs a field in France killing a rabbit it's one for all and all for one; but if American soldiers are killed by Syrians in the Gulf it's every country for itself?
