Probably the one article a year that stands as a legendary piece of work.
There is no doubt about the European mentality sinking off into the sunset. In May 2005, the US base closure list will arrive...and most of the 70k troops in Germany are leaving. My guess is that we will try to leave two or three installations in Germany (Ramstein is one)...but the German parliament will ask that they all leave. And by 2006...we will be gone from Germany...and the new beginning will start. The Germans and France have troubled economies...and no one to blame but themselves...and this is when the riots will start in the streets. What they have done...is their own handiwork...and they can face the task ahead alone. We came when called in 1918 and 1942...but we need not rush back for another episode...let them discover what values we have on relationships.
