What’s the EU To Do?

September 1st, 2008 | Sources: Boston Globe


Forgive the Europeans for being perhaps not quite so riveted by the unfolding situation in Louisana. It’s just that the EU is holding an emergency summit today for the purposes of crafting a response to the trampling of Georgia by Russia last month.

Britain and Poland are expected to call for a tough response. Angela Merkel’s coalition government is badly split on the issue, so Germany is a wild card. Other countries such as Italy and Spain prefer a more conciliatory approach.

Even as it lashes the south, Gustav has created an eye in the US political hurricane. We have a short time when it’s not politics as usual. We share fear and hope for folks in harm’s way and we want to see how the candidates react to the situtation. We also hope the candidates don’t take their eyes off the ball when it comes to critial developments outside the country.
