Central Europe's special relationship with the USA

In a commentary, Adrian Severin, an ex-foreign minister of Romania, proposes that the Central European countries with pro-Atlantic sympathies should form their own federation within the EU. "Experience has shown that the USA can tactically win any war, but is not capable of developing a peace strategy on its own." He adds that Europe and Russia are not rivals of America. "Quite the opposite - as partners in the increasingly tough global competition, they could help to win out against newcomers like China. The obsessive idea of a world with a single pole led by the USA and its tactical support for local despots carries the risk that the USA will eventually lose control and become enmeshed in superfluous or costly rescue operations."
