According to some actors in Brussels, the US withdrawal from Afghanistan is representative of a revision of Washington policy that also affects other parts of the world. That leaves deep marks in Brussels. For the EU, the Kabul case again reveals the inconvenient truth that it is unable to influence Washington's decisions. This means that she cannot fully protect her own interests.
The EU lacks a clear strategy. It is simply not enough to keep asking the question of what role Europe should play in the world. These weeks have shown once again that even the European countries that expect the EU to take on more responsibility for security and defense do not have the political will to implement this.
