On the Vagaries of United States Debt Restructuring

Complications arising from a reimagining of the ferment of U.S.-E.U. transatlantic relations are inevitable. This is especially true when talking about matters concerning money, particularly between close friends. This is why it is prudent for the U.S., as well as the E.U. to establish proper guidelines and safe measures an order to facilitate a furtherance of the unique, and special relationship which each has with one another, as well as having a frank and more than general understanding of one another’s ambitions in not only the current world order, but also in the unforeseen which could arise from the well established ambitions of near peer adversaries.

This is not an indictment of the European polities, I see much hope; aspirant, and realized around the continent, but rather a good friend who wishes nothing but the best for an old but not forgotten companion, both for now and the future…of all of Europe.
