The article discusses the author's views on North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO) increasingly imbalanced organization and deeply fissured integrity. He mentions the organization's limp involvement and inability to defeat Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and to contain the civil war in Libya. The author believes that NATO has been internationally pressured to call off intervention policies due to the imbalance in the defence contributions of its member states.
