Reaction to csdp : Us reactions is mixed: idea of burden sharing, wants more Europe support plus self reliance will go up, but the same time us doesn’t want the Europe to become so self reliant that it becomes a challenger to us power (self reliance vs challenger) EU wants more power and autonomy, but fearful that if they gain too much power. 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
