    Obama Administration Knifes Britain in the Back over Falklands

    Obama Administration Airbrushes Britain out of Europe

    Philip H Gordon, US Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, has just delivered a speech in Berlin outlining “the state of transatlantic relations”.

    Tony Blair's Nightmare Vision of a European Superstate

    Tony Blair’s interview in yesterday’s Times deserves to be widely read on both sides of the Atlantic. Why?

    Obama Pays Tribute to Himself During Angela Merkel's White House Visit

    The visit of German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Washington has attracted little attention in the US media, perhaps further proof that Berlin barely ranks as a world power these days, and consistently punches under its weight in international affairs. Compared to both David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel is a … More
