Redefining America’s Role in Europe

  • Jenonne Walker


Americans need a new concept of European security and of the U.S. role in it. For at least the rest of this century the challenge will be less to find military remedies to military threats, than to alleviate the sources of tension and instability before they turn violent. Americans welcome the new situation but adjusting to it will be hard, since Europe’s perceived need for U.S. military protection has been central to Washington’s role and influence there throughout the postwar period. But as the Soviet military threat to Western Europe disappeared — so too will that particular source of American influence, whatever happens to NATO and however many U.S. troops stay in Europe.
