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

Well, I take a quite fundamental issue with this part:

To preserve Western civilization in the face of declining Western power, it is in the interest of the United States and European countries:

Inasmuch as I don't see any WesternTM civilisation as such.

Also, the presumption that European and American interests are coterminous is rather strained. European interests dictate closer cooperation with Russia and the Southern Mediterranean. The Americans have no particular strategic interest in a Europe that deals with Russia without consulting our erstwhile allies in Washington. And the US certainly doesn't have any interest in a unified Mediterranean basin.
