From today's NY Times piece on the state of the US - European relationship
, we learn the following:
"Not all of Secretary Powell's administration colleagues are so diplomatic. They note that much of Europe's military is outmoded or incompatible with American forces, and are quick to recall the widespread European unease about President Reagan's aggressive posture against the former Soviet Union in the 1980's, a stance that succeeded so well it is now beyond debate."
Beyond debate? Debate by whom - Powell's administration colleagues, the Eurpoeans, or the NY Times? I will surely miss those editorials denouncing Reagan's reckless deficits and needless defense buildup. Unless I don't.
