Dulles, put it: No more will there be national armies to fight each other and to invade each other in a quest for national triumphs. 17 Dulles was so committed to the idea that he threatened an “agonizing reappraisal” of US policy vis-à-vis Europe should the Europeans fail to agree on a common defence. This was an empty threat. Despite the establishment of the Western European Union (WEU) in 1948, the collapse of the EDC in practical terms meant that Europe would not shoulder a proportionate share of the burden of defending against the USSR.
68 Needless to say, perhaps, this study is concerned not only with the attitudes and beliefs that flow from a distinctive European experience, but also with the EU style in terms of behaviour. 69 The strategic culture approach focuses on how decision-makers understand and interpret the main attributes of the international system in which they operate and how these assessments influence their views on security policy. The approach is based on the assumption that concepts are tools to be applied, not declarations of faith.

Henry Kissinger was the first to admit the undesirability of the emerging Euro-American relationship.
