A Strategic Building Block
In the new competition of the great powers, cooperation in Europe is vital. That is why we need a European Security Council.
The end of hope for liberal convergence, the tougher tone in international dealings, the United States’ focus on competition with China, and with Russia, Donald Trump's ruthlessness toward Europeans, and last but not least Brexit—all these developments are rocking the European "business model". They are just as dependent on the protective shield of the United States as they are on strategic leadership in Washington that takes the interests of Europeans into account.
