We are at a particular juncture in time where things could become seriously more troubling than they need to be within the European project. Perhaps its time to take the knitted gloves of the seperation of Statehood to the bin and place much needed attention to capable hands.
Required as such receeds to the powers that be, the United States, for better or for worse, has the most responsible position in the health of the European Union.

It could be that simple, but some like a bit of Political Theatre, and such theater should synthesis a Western Power greater than the sum of its parts.
