Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Wishful thinking in his dotage. I think the first time I read about US overreach causing a multi polar world was in the very early 2000s with the Echelon scandal. Which was also about the time I started reading the news at all. And yet what has really happened since then? The EU response can best be described by the dril tweet about licking your enemies' boots until they cry for mercy. The only exception is a refusal to stop gas imports, but that is so far from feasible that the demand itself is more transitional. And it has lead to the Europeans throwing money at useless LNG terminals. In the current Venezuelan coup the EU is again on board without dissension and we have yet to learn whether the EU's resistance on Iran has any real world consequences.
