This essay by Josef Joffe, which originally appeared in Commentary Magazine, examines the shift in U.S. foreign policy away from the European theater. Specifically, Dr. Joffe takes a look at the rapidly dwindling U.S. military presence in Europe as it ramps up its ‘pivot’ to Asia and the Middle East, areas now seen as the most prominent in terms of security strategy. What will this mean change mean for the overall future of the transatlantic relationship in a rapidly changing global power landscape?
