Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"The first and most important policy shift the United States should now undertake is to emphasize the enduring nature of the alliance relationship, particularly with Europe, which does share America's values and interests even if it disagrees with America on specific policies.
America cannot have that relationship if it threatens and condemns those who disagree. There is something transcendental about shared values that shouldn't be subordinated to tactical requirements. America should seek to cooperate with Europe, not divide it into a fictitious 'new' and 'old.'
The United States should be supporting a larger Europe as a zone of peace and prosperity in the world that is the necessary foundation for a stable international system in which American leadership could be fruitfully exercised."
