Inspired by some discussion at Europundits - click on "nadas" underneath Nelson Ascher's latest essay - I intend to begin blogging some notes on the widening divergence of American and European interests, a subject matter that inevitably touches as well on the Islamists, the international Left, and pretty much the whole thing.
Needless to say, it's a huge subject. Rather than try, at this time, to address it comprehensively, I'll attack it in pieces, beginning today with a series of raw comments originally posted as responses to Ascher's essay and to the discussion it engendered. I intend to revise, expand upon, and possibly re-organize the posts over time, and will allow them first to appear as rough drafts. Questions, disagreements, and suggestions will be welcome - either in the comment section or by e-mail.
