I'm in Slovenia, having joined the discussions chaired by Madeleine Albright on NATO's strategic concept, the alliance's blueprint. I have managed to grab a seat next President Obama's NATO envoy, Ivo Daalder, and we have all just listened to Anders Fogh Rasmussen and the Chairman of NATO's Military Committee.  

This process is impressive and the who's who of the NATO community is here, as they were at the first event in Luxembourg a month ago. But there is still an unreal sense about the process. For while it is a great PR opportunity for NATO, it is hard to see how the NATO members will overcome the serious differences that now exist among them.

To help Mrs Albright and her colleagues along, perhaps Coffee Houses could offer answers to the following questions:

1. What is the greatest threat against NATO?

2. What kind of capabilities should NATO emphasise in future?

If you give good answers or raise other key NATO-related points I will raise these during today's meeting.
