The Number You Are Calling is No Longer in Service

This article asks if we have a "European foreign policy." The answer is no.

Actually, the author asks if America's foreign policy is too European. But it is impossible for us to have a European foreign policy.

Western Europe believes they can afford to have a weak defense structure and an, ah--accommodating--foreign policy because they believe in the end we will rescue them from their own weakness if sacred soft power somehow actually fails to protect them and they call us for help.

If our foreign policy is to be Europeanized to any degree, just who do we call to rescue us?
