Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suppose it's a lame hope, but it occurs to me that this is an opportunity for the EU to proclaim its relevance in a time of fatuous hand-wringing over its own self-induced financial collapse. Not everything has to be about preserving the wealth of the anointed. Maybe this is an opportunity for it to find its better self and put some heat on the bone-heads. And I wonder if its out of place for NATO to offer a little wake-up regarding proposals for cross-border excursions.
I know preserving the peace and illuminating European brotherhood can't compete with concentrating wealth as moral goal ALL the time, but hey - maybe just this once they can do the right thing (without it involving killing folks in Africa and Asia).
