Since World War II, Iceland's foreign policy has been designed to maintain her freedom of action and to remain independent of external domination, not unusual goals for a NATO nation. lceland's view of the threats to her independence, and the priorities she assigns to those threats, however, are not coincident with what most Americans would believe them to be. It is thus especially important that those views be understood.
