Abstract:

The investments needed to implement NATO enlargement directly support this strategy The U.S. share of 150-200 million per year will update the security infrastructure of Europe, thus helping to ensure that recent progress is made permanent. The new members share of about 1 billion per year-which they willingly, democratically, are choosing to accept-will transform their ex-communist militaries into lean and competent organizations fully answerable to civilian leadership. The old members share of about 1 billion per year will give the United States added security and reduced strain by augmenting U.S. power projection capabilities, for use not only in Europe but beyond, where more acute dangers lie.
