... Edward Heath, the last of the British Gaullist Mohicans, are long gone. The EU has expanded into an unmanageable plethora of states, with the Franco-German axis under permanent threat from Britain, Poland, and the Baltic states, who are America’s anti-Russian fifth column cheerleaders in the EU.

Any Black Swan event could turn this downtrend into a landslide fall. Russia and the US have ever fewer areas for cooperation.
