It is understandable that President Macron would want to re-orient NATO's mission towards counterterrorism, as this is the most salient threat facing France. However, the overwhelming majority of domestic counterterrorism effort is done by the police--not the military. Not only is NATO not the police, but NATO was deliberately designed to be a rather inward-facing, defensive alliance to avoid provoking the Soviets. It was never designed to have force projection capabilities beyond the Med and the G-I-UK gap. So it lacks the heavy air and sealift it would take to sustain overseas, large footprint counterterrorism deployments, and apart from France and the US, the political will to do so at a sizeable scale. NATO suffers from a crisis of raison d'etre.
