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.
