Obama's EU sideshow

Further delusions. The headlines today across the EU sycopress scream
Obama to meet EU leaders in November

Which is true as far as it goes. The EUI has been desperate to host Obama since his election and was most put out when he failed to address the European Parliament, or even appear in Brussels after his election.

So this is obviously a feather in their cap. He is coming to see us, they preen and simper, we are important.

Except he isn't really.

What he is doing is coming to Lisbon to try and sort out the fractious alliance that is NATO. The EU so called summit is merely a tacked on side issue.
