They don't want to spend the money or devote other resources to it.

They'd prefer different sorts of systems, depending on which technology the government subsidizes.

They can't agree on strategic priorities. On the one hand, Putin/Russia bad. On the other hand, let's not put NATO forces in places that Russia says shouldn't have NATO forces there, and let's try to make sure that we have really good trade relations with them. But Putin/Russia bad.

NATO is a political/economic thing for most of the Western European countries; for the Eastern European countries, it's important, they think, for their defense and independence.
