Quote of the day

Philip Stephens in today's Financial Times:
For all that the rhetoric is warmer and the US has rediscovered the mechanics of diplomacy, the sense of distance between the two sides is palpable. Even where they agree on the objective – as in the case of preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability – they see the world through different lenses. The impatience for pre-emptive action of the sole superpower still collides with the European predilection for thumb-sucking.
Europe just makes pride swell in my chest...
