At his blog Steve Walt echoed one of William Easterly’s gripes: international organizations don’t work very well in part because there are too many of them. He asked “do we really need NATO, the EU, the WEU, the OSCE, the G20, the and the entire alphabet soup of existing international organizations?” Then a commenter got all huffy at him for being a non-European saying such a thing about the European Union, and he immediately backed off. Pssh, for a guy who postures about standing up to critics and bucking conventional wisdom he folds like a chair. Try being more arrogant, Euro-weenies can’t bite. Ecrasez l’infame! E.U delenda est!
