The article discusses the implications of the Syrian crisis on the relationships between Europe and the U.S. It indicates that while the U.S. needs partners in its pursuit of military interventions in Syria, it does not need the European states beyond the role they play in providing a semblance of legitimacy. It notes on the other hand, that Europeans cannot act without the U.S. and cannot do much at all without U.S. support when it comes to international security.
