Quotes

Moscow has long objected to a NATO presence near its borders. "It is clear that Russia wants to have lots of influence on the government of Ukraine so that it doesn't take the wrong path, that which would take it closer to the West and, above all, [to] NATO" independent regional analyst Maria Lipman told AFP
...York Times columnist Frank Bruni notes , politicians use this phrase instead of frankly discussing the costs and risk calculations of going to war: "We're not good at discussing this, at confronting head-on what the toll of our best intentions and tortured interventions can be. We turn to abstraction."
A senior NATO official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the spearhead force could range from "a very small size up to something potentially as large as a brigade size" . A NATO brigade typically numbers between 3,000 and 5,000 troops
"What the UK is doing ... is establishing this joint expeditionary force which could be used for NATO but could be used for other things as well, whether a European Union operation, a U N operation or indeed national operations" the senior NATO official said
