Us will abandon them. (autonomy vs abandonment) US attitudes toward CSDP : “Yes, but----” from US secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s 3Ds : Decoupling: wants EU to stay aligned with NATO, lack of trust Duplication: CSDP should not duplicate NATO’s capabilities and resources Discrimination: don’t discriminate against non-eu, NATO memberstates 3 major points after 3Ds: Military modernization rather than integration: us don’t want creation of huge EU army.
