One of my favorite bloggers is Glenn Reynolds, the InstaPundit. Glenn is the Dean of political bloggers with a blog that is both right of center (my preference) and well-written and thought provoking. I frequently find things I want to read there, like this piece by Jim Bennett on how the spectacular success of the US against the Iraqi military simultaneously crushed the hopes of those advocating a strong European voice to oppose the US. A great read.

I especially like the thinking around creating a transatlantic free trade area (TAFTA) and inviting any European country, whether a member of the EU or not, to participate. Its thinking outside of the box to believe that a non-geographically contiguous region could create a union of sorts around trade, but not out of the realm of possibility. This would allow the American's to fight fire with fire so to speak with regards to the Eastern European nations who seem more friendly towards the policy of the US than they do toward the EU. Its this kind of political JDAM that one might expect Bush's team of foreign policy superstars to pull off with precision. I, for one, would welcome the move.
