ABSTRACT
The time may be opportune to consider establishing a tangible, combined NATO and Russian military entity to jointly face the challenges of the post-September 11, 1991 world. The global geostrategic and political landscape has dramatically changed since Al Qaeda's surprise attack on September 11, 2001, the U.S. and NATO's subsequent dismantling of the Taliban in Afghanistan, and the total defeat and liberation of President Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Diplomatically, Europe to include Russia appears to be looking to repair and evolve its damaged U.S.-transatlantic link in the wake of the Iraq War, while the U.S. rhetoric pillorying "old Europe" has subsided. All recognize a common threat in transnational terrorism and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the need to commonly face a wide range of 21st century security issues.
