EU’s Letter to the President Elect

The Flag European Union is Based Upon A Painting Allegedly of Mary with a “Halo” of Stars


On the margins of the meeting of the Mediterranean Union, the European Union has put together a letter that it intends to send to the one elected as President of the United States today:

EU asks US for greater role on world stage

EUobserver – Nov 4, 2008

The EU has in a letter to the next US president appealed for a greater European role on the world stage, more engagement with a resurgent Russia and more emphasis on peacemaking in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

The six-page text was agreed at an informal EU foreign ministers meeting in Marseilles on Monday (3 November) and will remain under wraps until after the US election on Tuesday. But its contents were outlined by French EU presidency officials on the margins of the Mediterranean Union gathering in the southern French city, Le Figaro reports.

Based around four priorities, the text calls for a better interplay between security and reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan, with a view to making Afghan elections in late 2009 determinant for peace in the country.

It says the US and EU should take note of Russia’s economic revival and intensify diplomatic contacts to avoid the risk of confrontation. The EU as Russia’s permanent neighbour should have a major role in future negotiations.

The letter urges the new US administration to put the Middle East peace process at the top of its agenda and foresees a “useful role” for the EU as co-guarantors of a future Israeli-Palestinian accord.

It also stresses the importance of multilateralism in world governance and calls for reforms to the UN, the International Monetary Fund and the G8 format, to be expanded to a group of 14 leading industrialised nations.

“The time is past when people asked what Europe was for. What we want is for our initiatives to be understood and shared,” French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner said in Marseilles…

The current French leader, Nicolas Sarkozy, is markedly more pro-American than his predecessor, Jacques Chirac, with Mr Sarkozy putting the EU centre stage in recent efforts to broker peace between Russia and Georgia and to find a way out of the global financial crisis.

But the joint letter masks ongoing divisions between the US and EU and within the EU itself.         

I suspect that the new USA president will cooperate enough with the Europeans to allow them to build up their military might, learn US defense secrets, be able expand their economic influence, and otherwise strengthen Europe at the ultimate expense of the USA.

This is not to say that the USA will not receive any benefit from this closer cooperation (I suspect that they EU will agree to certain foreign policy decisions and perhaps lend the USA more money).  It is just that Europe is prophesied to destroy the Anglo-American powers, but it still needs assistance to be able to do that–until it is ready.
