Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The bottom line is that as far as Washington, London, Paris, etc are concerned, it's still the 19th century.

The fact that their populations are living in the 21st is neither here nor there - the decision makers don't much care what their populations think.

This single fact has more predictive power about likely future foreign and domestic policy than almost any other.
