Let’s Please not Accuse the Brits of Being Europeans
Martin Gross on the Washington Times Op-Ed page has an interesting take on the diplomatic divide between the US and Europe. Gross argues that ancient Europe is behaving like our rebellious child.
America would love to cooperate with Europeans in eliminating evil dictators who threaten the West. But apparently, the Europeans are more interested in expressing adolescent rebellion than in fighting.
The United States got to take a holiday from history during most of the 1990s. It was nice while it lasted, but 9/11 was an overly-loud wake-up call on why we can’t just disengage from the world. Europe, not directly attacked, keeps hitting the snooze button. They, like us, won’t get serious until they have to.
Or will they even then?
