The Trans-Atlantic Relationship: Back on Course?
The White House maintained that president Obama's visit was to "plant the seeds" of a better relationship.
It's not a problem of laying the seeds it is a problem of whether the soil is fertile. The soil becomes fertile when other countries feel that their interests are aligning with those of the United States. The soil becomes more receptive when there is a sense that what the U.S. is proposing is beneficial.
