It is 1518, events seem to show a Europe that has come to grips with its new security issues and put aside past internal animosities, squabbles, and outright warfare. The Russians will always be a potential threat but they are far enough away and so beset with internal strife that they do not pose a true immediate threat. The big powers in Europe have managed to put aside petty differences and have established a framework for peaceful resolution of contentious issues. The major powers agree that regardless of how it is dealt with, the focus must be on the real threat of militant Islam. They have achieved a framework of agreement and rules for dealing with this threat, the Treaty of London. This triumph of diplomacy was achieved in no small part by a woman, Ferdinand and Isabella’s daughter Catherine of Aragon.
