Any attempt to review the problems Nato strategy ,s likely to encounter until the year 2000 is a risky undertaking. History remains as unpredictable as man who makes it. Nevertheless, it is possible to extrapolate certain visible trends, to make assumptions based on relatively stable structures or behavior patterns in order to get a sense of where the Alliance seems to be heading and of the kind of problems it is most likely to encounter.
