Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The treaty is clever idea after failed referendums but can we expect stronger or more united EU since its member states have different priorities? I think it's unlikely before regime change in Washington and even after.

IMHO until the generation that had its formative years in the 1980's attains power EU member states won't shed their cold-war reflexes (including suspicion of Russia and love of all things US). Give it 15 more years, at least.

Unfortunately I don't think we have the luxury of waiting 15 years - things look set to unravel before that.

Well, I certainly am cured from love of anything US, but the gentle Mr Putin gives some reasons not to treat everything from Russia at face value...
